Manta Network’s crowdloan campaign will open sometime before the start of the first auction (slated to begin on November 11, 2021) and will end once a parachain slot is won, or at the end of the first five auctions (approx. December 16th, 2021), whichever comes first. This gives Manta the flexibility to participate in all five initial auctions. The collective DOTs will be locked for 8 periods (12*8 weeks or 96 weeks total) from when parachains go live. If Manta does not win a slot by the end of the fifth parachain auction, the DOTs will be unlocked and refunded to their original owners.
