Asura Coin, a global esports platform built on the NEO platform, will open its whitelist on the 22nd of April at 9am Central European Time.
The whitelist will form part of Asura Coin’s Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance for their upcoming ASA token sale, which will begin on May 21st and conclude on June 15th.
The token sale has a hard cap of USD $12,000,000, with one billion tokens to be minted. 65% of the token supply will be available for the public sale phase. Asura is offering a 20% discount for the first 24 hours of the sale and two bonus stages, with 15% off for the first hour of day two and 10% off for investors who contribute over 100 NEO.
Minimum contribution is 1 NEO, with individual caps of 100 NEO on day one and 500 NEO on day two.
Requirements for Asura Coin’s Whitelist
Registrants will need to submit valid identification documents. The following identification documents are accepted: passport, identity card, driver’s license or a residence permit. It should be noted that when using an internationally-accepted ID card (such as an international driver’s license), one must scan both sides of the document.
Registrants will also be required to submit a clear photo (a self-portrait). The self-portrait photo must be clearly identifiable as the same person who is on the other identification documents provided. When taking the photo, hats, sunglasses and other accessories must be removed. Identification documents and photo provided must be easy to read.
Finally, a valid NEO wallet address is required to participate in the whitelist and token sale. Asura recommends generating a new wallet before participating.
Asura warns participants to be on guard against scammers. Whilst the team has gone to great lengths to protect the community, they still recommend the following best practices:
- Only use the https://asuracoin.io URL when signing up for the whitelist. The whitelist link will be provided once opened to deter scammers.
- Bookmark Asura’s website and make sure it’s secured with the green lock icon.
- Be suspicious of any links you receive through email. Scammers can make it seem like Asura’s website only to redirect to their own site
- Asura will never ask for funds during the whitelist process, including in its Telegram, Reddit, email or through any other channel. The process for how to safely transfer funds will be provided in the lead up to the token sale.
If users have problems completing the whitelist form, they can visit Asura’s Telegram channel and speak with an admin. Asura warns of anyone contacting you without your asking for help first and to beware of fake admins using Asura Coin avatars. Real admins will never ask you to transfer funds or ask for your private key. Asura’s team will monitor the Telegram group throughout the whitelist process to help users with any questions or concerns.
To contact Asura Coin, only use the form on Asura Coin’s website.
Residents from the following territories cannot sign up for the whitelist or participate in Asura Coin’s public token sale:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea)
- Sri Lanka
- Trinidad and Tobago
- United States of America
