Paribus x CardStarter

The registration window will be open for 96 hours, from Monday August 19th @ 8am PST/3:00pm UTC to August 27th @ 8am PST/3:00pm UTC

Notice to all Wild Cards Participants

The IDO pool for the Paribus IDO is $150,000.

This will lead to an allocation size for Wild Card participants that may not be economically viable after taking into account gas fees and vesting.

While no one is restricted from taking part in this IDO, we recommend Wild Card participants understand this risk and do their due dilligence before deciding to participate.

Step 1 — Staking

To register for Paribus, you must have a tier qualifying number of CARDS staked.

  • Please read our most recent tiers article to learn about tier requirements
  • Please read our staking guide to learn how to stake your CARDS if you have yet to complete this process.

Step 2 — KYC

Paribus requires KYC. If you haven’t provided KYC through our partner Fractal yet, please do so now.

In addition, if you provided KYC to Fractal but it didn’t request your wallet address, please log back in through the following links to link your wallet address to your KYC.

NOTE: Your KYC must be completed and verified by the end of Paribus registration window. If your KYC is not verified by August 23rd, 4pm UTC we can’t guarantee you’ll be whitelisted.

Step 3 — Register

Head over to to register!

Click on the Paribus box (below where it says IDO Status) to open the registration window.

Once in the registration window, click “Register”. This will open up your connected wallet to complete the transaction. Please confirm the transaction, and give it a few minutes to go through.

Click Register On The Right To Register

For Wild Card Participants (100–1499 CARDS Staked)
Select your odds of participation if you are in the wild card tier before clicking register. Your pool weight will range from 0.1x to 1.5x at 100% odds of participation.

You can opt for up to a 1.5x pool weight with any number of CARDS in the Wild Card bracket, but you will be taking the chance of lower odds of participation the higher you push your pool weight. Good luck!

Confirm the transaction

Once the transaction is confirmed, the button will say “Registered”, and your CARDS tokens will now be locked until 7 days after the end of Paribus IDO.

Step 4 — Purchase During IDO Event

After registration ends on Monday, August 23rd, 3pm UTC, there will be a 48 hour whitelist finalization window.

Paribus IDO Event will begin on Friday, August 27th, 3pm UTC and last for 24 hours.

If you staked, registered, and KYC’d properly your address will be whitelisted and you can complete your purchase during this time on!

Thanks For Your Participation!
