Decentralized protocol built for cross-chain token pools and auctions, enabling projects to raise capital in an interoperable environment based on Polkadot.

Genesis Shards has just completed their IDO on Polkastarter, the first IDO to be completed simultaneously on both Ethereum and BSC networks.

Today at 2:00pm UTC, Genesis Shards launched their IDO on Polkastarter. The IDO was the first ever to occur simultaneously on both the Ethereum and BSC networks. Both pools were successfully filled; congratulations to the Genesis Shards community and team for this tremendous milestone!

Both Ethereum and BSC pools sold out successfully, with the Ethereum pool selling out in less than 60 seconds!

The first multi-chain IDO on Polkastarter was a great success! Now, onwards! Ready to scale…

Polkastarter IDOs are now multi-chain on Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain. Here’s a rundown of how to get started with future BSC pools.

Recently, we announced that Binance Smart Chain (BSC) would now support Polkastarter IDO pools. Tomorrow, on April 14, the first dual Polkastarter Ethereum and BSC IDO for Genesis Shards will happen!

If you’re already a BSC user or you’re eager to start participating in the BSC pools in the future, we’ve put together this tutorial guide to help you navigate when you participate in future IDOs. Warning: it’s super simple!

Important notes before you start.

  1. You will need $BNB in order to participate in the BSC Pools to pay for the network fees. You can buy BNB on Binance.
  2. If you never connected your MetaMask…

Advice to projects launching on Polkastarter and establishing whitelisting guidelines for IDOs.

Since the launch of Polkastarter three months ago, we have been blown away by the growth of the platform and of the incredible Polkastarter community.
