Participate in a A2ZPad IDO: a step-by-step guide

This is your in-depth guide explaining the exact process on how to join IDO on the platform.

Step 1: Prepare your wallet

Start off by checking which network the IDO is on (e.g., ETH, BSC, or MATIC) and make sure that you have enough of the corresponding tokens to cover volatility and network fees. While fees on BSC and Polygon range from a few cents to a couple of dollars, these can be painfully high on Ethereum in particular.

Volatility: Cryptocurrencies change in value fast. We recommend having at least a 10–20% buffer of what you need to participate. For example, let’s say the allocation is $200, have $210–230 of ETH, BNB or MATIC in your wallet.

Network Fees: We recommend having at least $5–10 dollars worth just for network fees on Polygon and BSC, and up to a 100–150% buffer on Ethereum. You’re unlikely to need them, but to be safe it’s best to keep that much.

All in all, here is what we recommend:

Ethereum: keep a 120–150% buffer minimum
Binance Smart Chain/Polygon: 20–25% buffer minimum
This should do it!

You can see the wallet on the Projects page. Every project has a little icon showing which network the sale is on. Some projects might have sales on multiple chains, so be sure to check carefully!

Step 2: Prepare for the Token Sale

Make sure to connect your MetaMask wallet and double check the network your wallet is set on while waiting. You should be on the appropriate network for the sale you participate in. It might be Ethereum (ETH), Binance Smart Chain (BNB), or Polygon (MATIC)…

Step 3: Join the Sale

Mind you that you always have to accept a disclaimer before you can participate. After accepting, you can enter the amount you would like to contribute. You can also utilize the MAX (MIN) button.

Once the transaction is confirmed on the blockchain, you have successfully secured your tokens and are now the happy owner of whatever project you chose to support.

Step 4: Enjoy your new tokens!

And that’s all.
