Fair Mint Phase 1 Page
There are 12 launch pools. Each launch pool has its assigned hexadecimal character(s).
  • 10 launch pools can be participated with $TREAT and/or $TRICK.
  • 2 launch pools can be participated exclusively with the token from the preceding Fair Mint. - 1 launch pool with a single hexadecimal character - 1 launch pool with two hexadecimal characters
To take part in Phase 1, you need to have a minimum of 100 $TREAT and/or $TRICK or the preceding Fair Mint assets.
You can also view the total number of participants and the amount of locked assets in each pool.
With the Rank Overview column, you can swiftly assess the ranking and asset requirements in each pool.
For example, this summary tells you that you'd need over 9,312 assets to hit rank 50 in this pool. However, this amount will increase as existing participants increase their holdings or new participants join.

Strategize Better By Checking The Launch Pool Leaderboards

Users can check the Launch Pool Leaderboards to assess the ranking of participants and the assets requirement.
We recommend users check the Leaderboards before they make any decision on which pool to participate in.

How to Increase Your Assets Quantity In The Participated Pool?

There is a cooldown period of 10 minutes each time you lock your assets into the Launch Pool.
Before you increase your asset quantity in your participated pool, it is best to check the leaderboard and understand which rank position you are aiming for.
Tap on Increase Your Locked Assets to add more assets to your participated pool.
The ranking and asset requirement will increase as existing participants may increase their holdings or new participants join. Do consider this before deciding on the amount of assets you will be adding to your asset quantity.

And.... done. You have increased your asset quantity in the participated pool.
Take note of the Phase 1 Countdown Timer!
When Phase 1 ends, you will no longer be able to participate or increase assets in your pool.

Important Notes

Despite our extensive preparations for a seamless experience, we anticipate a significant surge in network traffic in the last 30 minutes before the deadline.
It's crucial to avoid waiting until the final moments to participate or increase asset quantity.
At the end of Phase 1: Participation, 50% of the locked assets will be returned, and the remaining 50% will be refunded at the end of Phase 2: Lottery Draw.
Unlocking assets may take some time because the relays can't handle too many messages at once. We'll unlock assets in the order of participation. Roughly 300 participants' assets will be unlocked every minute. So if there are 50,000 participants, it'll take a few hours.
