Discover why your IDO applications don’t succeed

Participating in Polkastarter IDOs is the fun part! Getting rejected on your application is not. And what’s even worse is not knowing the reason why you’re rejected.
We hear you!
That’s why we added a brand new feature to your dashboard called “Reason Tooltip”. It will show you information about your application status. You’ll see it on the web version of our site.
Here are the possible reasons why your IDO application didn’t succeed:
1. Didn’t KYC: You failed or didn’t complete the KYC process
Make sure you check your email spam for the KYC email from the project. Here’s a full guide on how to do KYC properly.
2. Blacklisted country: You’re living in a non-eligible country
These countries are listed in the application form of the project.
3. Wrong answer(s): You’ve put a wrong answer or answers
You haven’t answered the questions correctly in the application form. For the next IDO, make sure you follow the project’s social media channels and site. There you’ll find the answers.
4. Insufficient POLS Power: You don’t have enough POLS Power
You need to have at least 250 POLS to get whitelisted for an IDO. Make sure you don’t unstake those POLS between applying and when you are pre-selected for the IDO. Here’s everything you need to know about POLS power.
5. In cooldown period: You’re in a cooldown period
A cooldown period starts after you participate in an IDO. You’ll need to wait 7 days before you can apply for the next one. This doesn’t apply if you hold over 30,000 POLS. Here you’ll find more information about the cooldown period.
6. Didn’t pass AML: You didn’t pass AML
Each project conducts its own Anti-Money Laundering checks. Polkastarter doesn’t know the criteria for these checks or the reasons for rejection.
7. Unlucky without ‘!’: You were just unlucky
You did everything correctly and your application is still unsuccessful. Don’t worry! If you keep following the whitelisting process, you’ll get your chance.
