It’s almost time for our second round raise, which is exclusively for the earliest members of our community. We’ve added a countdown timer to our home page to make it easy to keep track of when the whitelist registration opens.
The whitelist button will be active on December 27th. This post walks through the process of whitelisting for the Early Bird sale. If you’re eligible to be an Early Bird, please pay close attention to the instructions and make sure you’re ready.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE
1. Your privacy is incredibly important to us.
2. We do not store any personal information.
3. If you are a first-time Terra user, there are a few things you should know. We’ve added that information below.
HOW EARLY BIRDS ARE CHOSEN
The first 2500 Telegram users who joined our group have been reserved a spot for our Early Bird Round. Ideally, all 2500 spots are filled through the following process. If they are not, we will open up the remaining spots to the next eligible users, by order of joining the group. Once 2500 spots are full the Early Bird whitelist is concluded. Any drop off during the ensuing KYC process means the remaining Early Birders get a bigger allocation. You are guaranteed a spot on the Early Bird whitelist if:
- You are one of the first 2500 to join our Telegram group.
- You claim your spot through the Atlo site during the allotted window period.
If there is space after the first whitelisting window closes, we will open a second window to the next set of eligible group members. The number of positions depends on the results from the first window.
Once the second round window closes, whitelisting for the Early Bird round is done. Our goal is to get as close to 2500 pre-KYC’ed users as possible, but in the interests of time we cannot indefinitely repeat this process.
SOME COUNTRIES CANNOT PARTICIPATE
If you are a resident in one of the following countries you will fail KYC and not be able to participate in this IDO. We ask that if you are among our first 2500 and this applies to you, please do not register. Rather leave your spot for someone who is able to. It sucks, we get it, but this is the way it’s got to be. Organised alphabetically, they are:
Afghanistan,Albania, Bahamas, Belarus, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Burundi, Cambodia, Canada, Central African Republic, Crimea, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Guinea-Bissau, Iran, Iraq, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanese Republic, Libya, Malawi, Mali, Montenegro, Mozambique, North Korea, People’s Republic of China, Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, Republic of Guinea, Republic of North Macedonia, Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Union of Myanmar, Russia, Serbia, Somalia, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Timor-Leste, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, United States of America, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Yemen, Zimbabwe.
TIPS FOR FIRST TIME TERRA USERS
If you are new to Terra, welcome! It’s a great ecosystem. Here are a few notes to help you get set up.
- If you’re on desktop, use Chrome or Brave Browser, and the relevant Extensions. You can download those extensions here.
- If you’re on mobile and use Safari or Chrome apps, you can also use your Terra Station mobile app to complete the wallet linking and any contract signing.
CLAIMING YOUR EARLY BIRD WHITELIST SPOT
The steps below work on your phone, or your desktop. Remember, you will need to pay gas fees and interact with your Terra Station extension as we write all this to the blockchain for full transparency, so make sure you have UST in your wallet to cover the fees.
Go to Atlo and connect your wallet. You can use any of the mechanisms normally available to Terra users.
Take a moment to browse around and find out more about our first project. Which is $ATLO, of course.
Once your wallet is connected you’ll see an Apply for Whitelist button under the project details. Click that and follow the steps it prompts you to complete.
You’ll be asked to Login with Telegram. It’s all completely private and we store no personal details. Tap the “Login with Telegram” button.
If you are not already logged into the Telegram app on mobile or the web app, you will be prompted to add your phone number for verification with the Telegram app.
Once this is done you will get a message in the Telegram app asking you to confirm your login. This is 100% between you and Telegram. Atlo does not see nor store any of this data.
By doing this you’re letting us validate your Telegram details against our Early Bird list and if they match — you’re in!
On tapping Confirm on the Telegram message, you’ll get a message telling you whether you have made it onto the whitelist or not.
If you’ve made it, we’re going to write this to the blockchain. You’ll need to confirm and complete the transaction in Terra Station Extension or the Mobile app and from that point onward your position is secure. You’ll pay gas fees at this step as you would with any smart contract interaction.
Later, once you have completed KYC, you’ll be able to prefund your account with UST. In the event others in the Early Bird round do not take their full allocation allowed, prefunding enables you to buy a fair share of any excess unclaimed tokens above and beyond your allocation.
And that’s it. If you make it, welcome!
