On the Commit window, type the number of tokens. Click Confirm.

Confirm the transaction on your wallet.

On the first time commit, you will be asked to make an Approval transaction, so the IHO contracts can move your funds. This only happened once per session.

After the transaction gets confirmed, you will see your committed funds and the number of partner tokens you will receive in real-time.

After the IHO

After the IHO finishes, you can claim your new token and unspent assets.

How many tokens you will get depends on how many people participated in the IHO. All sessions will use the Overflow sale method.

The overflow method ensures that the more you commit to an IHO, the more partner tokens you will receive, and you will get back anything that doesn’t get spent.

Depending on each IHO and requested by the project team, the cooldown period and token vesting concepts will be applied or not. It’s important to read each IHO’s announcement post to learn more.

Cooldown Period: During the seven days following the conclusion of the IHO, you’ll be able to claim back your refunded HOTDOG in a linear fashion. BUSD will be refunded immediately. This is intended to reduce in-and-out mercenary capital causing harmful market fluctuations.

Token Vesting: Immediately claimable 25% after IHO, with 90-Day linear vesting on the remaining 75% to follow.

It’s super-important to keep in mind that these sessions change with every IHO. That’s the beauty of being part of the community. We adapt and change sale methods and pool methods frequently.
