Equinox ZONE IDO Participation Process

To our awesome Equinaut community,

To do this, we have pushed the launch date to 01 Nov 2021.

  • The ZONE project is built on the Algorand (ALGO) blockchain, so requires an Algorand wallet for token distribution. This ALGO wallet address will be registered when you sign up to join the pool.
  • However, the token allocation funding is occurring on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network. The low fees and ease of use for the BSC network with MetaMask wallets make allocation payments a smoother process. (For anyone who was with us during the Apollo-X Star Atlas raise, a similar model was used with Solana wallets).
  • Participation Round: This is the time window available to confirm your intention to participate in an IDO. This must happen prior to the Participation Close Snapshot. The snapshot dates/times are listed on the ZONE project page on the Equinox website and will be communicated in our social channels before it happens. No funds will be sent at this time. The current snapshot date and time is 01 Nov 2021 at 5:00 am UTC.
  • Pools Open / Pool Openings: This refers to the actual IDO and when the pools open for allocation funding. ZONE Pools will now open for allocation funding on 01 Nov 2021 at 11:00 am UTC.

Equinox IDO Launch FAQs

  • No, the only payment accepted is BUSD.
  • The fundraising is happening on Binance Smart Chain using BUSD. This is separate from the ZONE token distribution to your Algorand wallet.
  • There are no set minimum and maximum amounts for lottery winners or first-come, first-served participants. The buy amounts are determined by the number of participants and the size of the fundraise for each launch. We work to find a balance so the allocation amounts are meaningful to the community.
  • TBD. Please stay tuned to our social channels for more information.
  • You will need to confirm your participation before the Participation Window closes. There will be a lottery to determine access after the closing participation snapshot, but there is not a separate whitelist.
  • Citizens and residents of and persons located in the United States of America, China, Hong Kong, and all sanctioned OFAC countries (DR Congo, Iran, Myanmar, Sudan, Iraq, Ivory Coast, North Korea, Syria, Zimbabwe, Cuba, Belarus, Liberia) as well as Central African Republic, Libya, Mali, Somalia, Yemen.
  • The token distribution date is TBD. At the time of distribution, you will receive 5%, then a lock-up cliff of 6 months, then a linear release for 6 months.
  • They will be airdropped to the Algorand wallet you registered when confirming your participation. But make sure you complete the opt-in process to approve the airdrop to your Algorand wallet.
