  2. If the referred amount ranks in the top 10, you have an extra reward boost of up to 3%:

TOP 6–10: 5% → 6%

4. Early Bird Program

  • Rewards: Up to 120% rewards boost.
  • Qualification: Contribute before the start of Polkadot’s Batch 2 auction (December 23, 2021).
  • Detailed Algorithm:
  1. Pioneer Stage (120% reward boost): from the start of the Darwinia crowdloan to the end of the batch 1 auction (December 23, 2021). During this stage, contributors will receive a 120% reward boost.
  2. Regular Stage (100% reward): from the start of the batch 2 auction (December 23, 2021) to the winning auction’s candle light-up time. During this stage, contributors will receive a 100% of the reward.
  3. Final Stage (100% to 0 linear regression): from candle light-up time to the result-determine block within the winning auction. During this stage, rewards will reduce linearly to zero.

For example, if you participate in the crowdloan between “Darwinia Crowdloan Starts” — “Batch 2 Auction Begins” and invest 10,000 DOT, the reward multiplier will be 120%. Assuming that Darwinia wins the slot auction with 5,000,000 DOT, you will obtain 10,000 DOT / 5,000,000 DOT * (200,000,000 RING and 8,000 KTON) * 120% = 480,000 RING and 19.2 KTON.

The above calculation is a rough estimation. The value will be precisely calculated according to the block height.


  • Early bird supporters can earn a bonus of up to 120% of the reward.

Contribution Strategy:

You can contribute as soon as the Darwinia crowdloan opens up. The earlier you participate, the higher the returns!

Tip: The rewards for the Referral Program and the Early Bird Program will start vesting linearly if Darwinia successfully wins the Polkadot parachain slot.
