This article will show the contribution process on Crab PLO Page. Specific details will be announced if other methods of participation open up. So stay tuned for follow-up posts.

Crab Crowdloan step-by-step Instructions

1. Create a polkadot{.js} account (skip this step if you have one already)

If you don’t have an account in polkadot{.js}, create one to continue (Please jump to step 3 if you already have one). Download Polkadot{.js} for Chrome or Firefox and add it to your browser.

After the download completes, create a new account. Please store your password and mnemonic seed safely. Do not screenshot and share with others!

You can also import an account from pre-existing seed.

2. Transfer KSM to your polkadot{.js} wallet

Make sure you have enough KSM in your wallet to make contributions. If not, transfer some KSMs to your wallet account. Make sure your account is on Kusama relay chain.

3. Connect to the Crab PLO page

Log into the Crab PLO page and connect your wallet.

4. Contribute KSM

Enter your contribution amount or use the MAX button. Please be noted that the Maximum contribution amount is less than your KSM balance because some KSM will be left for gas fee. Account password is needed to sign the contribution transaction.

💡 To prevent your account balance was cleared, please make sure that your account balance is greater than 0.0000334 KSM after contributing.

Bonus: This bonus comes from the Early Bird Program, and it will be delivered to the supporters who contributed before the 1st slot ending period starts (block #10914000).

About Crab Network

Follow Us: [Github] [Website] [Medium] [Telegram] [Twitter]

Crab is a canary network with real economic value for Darwinia, and its positioning is similar to Polkadot’s Kusama Network. You can check Crab status through Polkadot{.js} , Subscan or Subview.

Crab provides smart contract solutions based on DVM (Darwinia Virtual Machine), which is compatible with the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) paradigm at the low level. Therefore, it is easy for projects in the Ethereum ecosystem to migrate to the Crab Network. (Tips: DVM is built on Frontier with a fully EVM-compatible instruction set and an Ethereum RPC-like external interface.)
