If you’re reading this, you’re most likely interested in taking part in the Atari public sale, happening on October 29th, 2020 at 12:00 UTC. If you’ve used other exchanges, and have taken part in other IEOs, most of this will be pretty intuitive for you. However, anyone who’s new to the world of IEOs will get a detailed guide on how to take part and buy some tokens, in this case, buy some ATRI tokens.
Step #1: Login or Create Account and 2FA yourself
First things first, as for most platforms, you’ll need to create an account before you get into everything. After deciding on a password and verifying your email address, please also set-up 2-Factor-Authentication either with the Google Authenticator or if you’re the proud owner of a yubikey, with yubikey. We can’t stress the importance of 2-FA to secure your account enough. If you want a deep dive into that topic, click here.
Step #2: Depositing or Buying Cryptocurrencies
The next step will be to deposit the first cryptocurrency to your exchange account. To deposit, simply go to the deposit icon in the top right corner of your account and choose the currency you want to deposit. When you click on the currency of choice, it will generate your wallet address. Simply send your crypto to this wallet address and wait. Depending on the currency, it can take some time until deposits are credited. For BCH transactions the process is faster as we credit deposits after just two block confirmations.
Another way of depositing into your account if you don’t have any crypto is to buy crypto with a credit card on our exchange. For more details on that, check out this blog post. If you’re already a Bitcoin.com Exchange user, then most of this you’ve already done and you can skip most of this chatter.
Step #3: Checking out the IEO Platform
Once you are logged in, you will find that on the top corner of your screen you’ll see a menu, click on the menu icon labeled as ‘IEO’ and you’re ready to enter the platform.
The following screen will give you an idea of the projects featured on the Bitcoin.com Exchange IEO platform. Under ‘Announced’ you may find the different titles corresponding to the right cryptocurrency you can buy Atari Token (ATRI) with. Simply choose the cryptocurrency you want to buy Atari Token (ATRI) with the selection of BTC, BCH, ETH, USDT, and LTC.
The status of each project is carefully laid out for easy understanding. Those that are about to enter the phase of their token sale are usually found under Announced and display a summary of some information for each project.
When you click on a project, you will be redirected to a dedicated page on the platform that contains all the necessary information about that particular IEO. Please note, you can buy Atari Token (ATRI) with BTC, LTC, BCH, ETH, and USDT. Please note that funds need to be in the trading account to participate in the IEO. See Step #2 how to deposit funds.
Step #4: Entering the Atari IEO Page
At the top of each page, there is general information about the project and fundraising event, including the project social platforms, website, and whitepaper. Below one will also find the start date for the IEO and the Token Sale Goal.
Below, one can then find the following metrics, in Atari’s case, these include:
Token Ticker: ATRI
Soft Cap: 600,000 ATRI
Total Token Supply: 7,771,000,000 ATRI
Contribution Currencies: ETH/BTC/LTC/BCH
Market Cap: $17.1M
Token Type: ERC-20
Token Sale Supply: 4,000,000 ATRI
Lot Size: 1 ATRI
Minimum Purchase: 1 ATRI
Here, one can also find the date once again, while also one of the most important metrics, the Token Price, it is 0.25 USD in ETH/BTC/LTC/BCH, along with the Total Token Supply: 4,000,000 ATRI for the public sale. A button will then appear once the public sale has launched, giving users information on how to purchase ATRI tokens. At the time of writing, this was not active because the token sale had not yet started.
Step #5: Bitcoin.com Exchange IEO Required Information (KYC)
Before you can participate in the Atari Token IEO (ATRI) on Bitcoin.com Exchange, you must provide some personal information, which is known by the term; Know Your Customer or KYC. This varies based on the project, however, there is a generic verification process that most projects will end up using. The path to the KYC page will appear at the very top of the IEO page, as listed above, all one needs to start is just clicking the link. Below you will find an easy, and minute process on how to pass KYC in a flash.
1. Individual KYC
Upon clicking you’ll likely find yourself on the page seen below. This gives you oversight on the different types of accounts within Bitcoin.com Exchange, and in this case, you’ll need to upgrade from Individual to Individual PRO. What you’ll need to do here is click on ‘Start Verification’.
2. Choose Individual PRO
Click the ‘Select’ button under INDIVIDUAL PRO to continue. It is crucial that you read the bottom note that Bitcoin.com Exchange cannot allow accounts for residents of the United States, Japan, and other countries listed in the T&Cs.
3. Enter the required personal information
4. Identify Yourself
Once the above is done, you’ll need to submit the following documents to prove you are who you say you are:
Identity Document: Passport/Driver’s License/ID Card. The process is pretty fast, and we recommend using a digital camera or your phone to take the pictures since usual webcams aren’t that great for picture quality.
Proof of Address: You’ll have to submit documents pertaining to Utility Bills, Central or Local Government Correspondence, Work Permit/Employment Declaration, Rental Agreement copies, or Official Police Conducts in this scenario. Documents should include your full name, residential address, and issue date. All originals that are not in English, have to be accompanied by a certified English translation.
Facial Recognition: Complete the facial information step of the verification process. You’ll need to take a photo of you, holding the same Identity document you provided earlier.
5. You’re pretty much set.
Technically, you’re done. However, once you have completed all of the above, you have to allow some time for your approval to be processed.
You will also notice that certain countries are currently not allowed to participate in these fundraising events. See the list here!
Step #6: Taking Part in the Atari IEO
And this is basically the conclusion, participating in a fundraising event on Bitcoin.com Exchange is relatively simple. The main things to remember are that you will need to provide some personal information, and also conduct facial recognition. It’s also very important to do your research before participating in a sale. Keep in mind that these fundraising events trigger massive interest and reach, outside of just the current crypto sphere - meaning successful purchases are not always guaranteed until you’re right on time.
That’s why we urge you to pass KYC as soon as possible and access our platform on the 29th of October, 2020 at 12:00 UTC to take advantage of being the early bird, who catches the Atari Tokens right off the bat.
