How to Prepare for Ethermon’s Polkastarter Initial Decentralized Offering (IDO)

Now that we’ve announced our Polkastarter IDO on the 18th of May, we want to share with the community how to best prepare and participate in the token generation process.

Polkastarter Updates

The Polkastarter IDO qualification process has changed since Ethermon originally planned to launch on the platform (~March 2021.) Previously, separate pools were created for participation between the public and the community of POLS token holders. As the result of a recent update, the Polkastarter IDOs now have have one single pool. You can read more about these changes here: Polkastarter Whitelists Just Got A Whole Lot Better

After aligning with the Polkastarter team, we are happy to present the following unique opportunity for POLS holder and the long lasting Ethermon community who’s been with us since the beginning. Thank you for all of the support during this transition, we believe this will be a stellar launch!!

Overall 1250 will be allowed to participate in this whitelist.

Breakdown of opportunities to participate in the whitelist are below:

Ethermon Community Participation (MAY 6th — 15th)

To have a chance at being selected from the community whitelist, you need to fulfill ONE of the following requirements:

Battle Ready Trainer — At minimum, holding 3 different classes of Matic Network Mons (EMONA Token) in your wallet address (Including the limited time, 100% FREE to Catch Mons: Snobbit & Hambrisk on the Matic Network — Yes, we’ll even pay for the gas!).

Step by step walkthrough on how to catch the Matic Network Mons will be released tomorrow.

Legacy Trainer — At minimum, holding 8 different classes of Ethereum Network Mons (EMONA token) in your wallet address (Excluding the free starter Mon classes: Kyari, Omnom, Mintol). This will be an opportunity for existing players with layer 1 Mons to participate in the launch event for the support given through our journey.

(Although not necessary, chances will increase for Trainers that acquire more Mons than needed to become Battle Ready)

KYC for this Community Bucket: May 6th — 15th (Don’t Miss this End Day to KYC)

As soon as you meet one of the above qualifications you may complete your KYC through the Register for Polkastarter button that will be displayed on the webpage. If you happen to also hold the minimal 250 POLS tokens you will get another chance on the below POLS Holder participation windows as well.

If you are a POLS holder, you can participate in this community bucket and still have your opportunity to KYC for the POLS only allocation. YOU DO NOT NEED MONS TO REGISTER! WAIT FOR MAY 12th POLS ONLY REGISTRATION. DETAILS ARE BELOW IN POLS HOLDER PARTICIPATION SECTION.

We don’t want any whitelist participant to walk away feeling like they got nothing if they aren’t selected.
