We are trying our best to expand the channels for the community’s participation in the crowdloan. We have both centralized and decentralized options for users to choose from when deciding how to contribute.
You cannot contribute bonded or staked DOT. You must have DOT in your wallet/exchange account, and your DOT must be transferable (unstaked and unbonded). This includes both staking and democracy locks. The DOT unlocking period is 28 days.
Fully Decentralized Options
You have full control of your funds, and those funds are directly submitted to the crowdloan.
