Tutorial Video


  • You need the latest version of nOS Client. Download here.
  • You need an account at which you can create using nOS Client.
  • Application Process: Lottery
  • Whitelist Application Form: (make sure to use nOS Client)
  • Applications Start date: September 28th 20:00 CEST
  • Applications End Date: October 5th 20:00 CEST
  • Application Selection: 15,000 public sale applicants will be selected at random by specific technical instructions (see “Provable Fairness” below).
  • All pre-sale participants have guaranteed access to the TGE and can do their KYC during the lottery application process.


When the lottery application process starts, you will be able to apply for the Token Sale (TGE) by entering limited KYC details.

These details cannot be changed after your submission.

NOTE: You will never be able to participate in the TGE with invalid KYC details.

If you win the lottery selection process, you will be required to use the exact same details for your KYC process:

Tl;dr: fake KYC = instant disqualification.

Provable Fairness

We’re employing a fair selection procedure by putting the selection rules into a text file that cannot be altered after the lottery has started.

We’re sharing the MD5 checksum of this text file now, before the selection, and will share the text file after the lottery has completed.

This way any participant can verify that the rules of the selection process have not been altered during the lottery.

The MD5 checksum is a unique hashed version of specific data. If the data (in this case a text file) is shared later, anyone can retrieve the same MD5 hash from it, verifying that the file is legitimate. MD5 checksums are often used to verify someone downloaded the original version of an application.

MD5 checksum of lottery rules (last updated Sept. 28th 18:37 CEST):


Update: We have applied some changes to the lottery technical specification file to increase selection fairness and randomness. We will upload both the initial ruleset (of which its MD5 hash is the hash of the original rules file shared above), and the updated file, so that anyone can verify both rule-sets and observe that the updated rule-set increased fairness and randomness in the selection process.

Updated MD5 hash (October 3rd 23:00 CEST):
