Due to the overwhelming response from the community, whitelisting for the Caspian public token sale has been extended for an additional two weeks and will now conclude on the 10th of October. This is in order to allow everyone enough time to complete the process. Public sale dates have been changed accordingly and will now commence on the 17th of October. More details in our latest Medium post here.

For those of you not aware, our public token sale will begin on Wednesday, 3 October at 9:00am BST and last through Friday, 5 October at 12:00 am BST. Before that time, there are a few things you will need to know and do in order to participate. This post explains the whitelisting process, which all participants will need to take part in. We will unlock all tokens two weeks following the last day of the token sale.

Whitelisting will open on Wednesday, 19 September at 9:00 am BST and last through Thursday, 27 September at 12:00am BST. The Caspian team will begin KYC at the end of the first day of Whitelisting on a first-come-first-serve basis.

How to buy CSP using Metamask

If you are accepted onto the whitelist, you will receive an email notifying you and providing instructions for participating in the public sale. You are now able to purchase tokens through Caspian’s public sale. We explain below how to purchase tokens using the Metamask wallet.

Metamask is an Ethereum browser that allows you all the same functions, features and ease of access from regular Ethereum Wallets, without the need to download the blockchain or install any software. You can install Metamask as a Google Chrome Extension in order to purchase tokens.

In order to set up, you will need:

  • A web browser,
  • Some ether in your account

If you don’t have a ERC20-compatible address to send from, or ether (ETH) to contribute, start from Step 1. Otherwise, go to Step 4.

Step 1: Create an account

Search Google for “metamask chrome extension” and click the link that begins with https://chrome.google.com. You will be taken to the install page, where you can click “Add to Chrome”.

Now you will see the Metamask fox in your browser tab. Click it to open your wallet.

You will be prompted to create a secure password for your Metamask account. Make sure that the Ethereum Mainnet network is selected (in the top left corner).

Step 2: Importing an Account

If you have a private key or JSON file for a wallet already, you can import that wallet in to Metamask. Simply click “≣” at the top right, choose “Import Account”.

You will need to input your raw private key into the “private” key field, or the typical JSON keystore file. Otherwise, you can select “Create Account” to generate a new one.

Step 3: Getting Ether

To be able to participate in the ICO, you will need to have some ether (ETH) in an account that you control. You can buy ETH from different cryptocurrency exchanges.

Remember NEVER to send ETH directly from an exchange — your tokens might never be recovered.

There is no need to increase the default gas price (or the value you are used to). Unless there is unusually high traffic in the Ethereum network, 30 GWEI should be enough to get the transaction confirmed in a few minutes.

Step 4: Buying Caspian Tokens

The Public Sale opens on today, 17 October 9:00 am BST and will conclude 48 hours later on Friday, 19 October at 9:00 am BST.

Please ensure you are on our official and secure website. Our official website address is here. If you have been approved on our whitelist, login to your account and the address will appear on your dashboard after signing in.

The final step is to add the token to your MetaMask, so you can see your balance. Click “Add Token”, and paste in the following information:

Token Symbol: CSP

When your transaction has been mined and entered into the blockchain, you will be able to see it under “Tokens” in your Metamask account.

We will never send you any direct messages regarding details of the sale, and we will not request public contributions before Wednesday, 17 October 9:00 am BST. All details and main communication channels will be released through our official Website, Twitter, Medium, and Telegram. If you have any issues during the public sale, please reach out to us at info@caspian.tech or through Telegram. Please only share your questions in Telegram with one of the group admins, a full list of their handles and a schedule of who is available is listed in the pinned message.

Thank you for your support and participation!
