Event Kick-off: 00:00 UTC, May 26, 2022

Payout Proposal: June 22–28, 2022

🔎 Rules

  • To be eligible to win a prize in either pool, your wallet address must convert a minimum of 10 KAVA to wKAVA during the event period beginning at 00:00 UTC on May 26, 2022, and ending at 23:59 UTC on June 15, 2022.
  • To be eligible to win a prize in the #KavaSquad pool, you must use an existing Kava wallet address to create your Kava 0x address. That address must have been created and made at least one transaction prior to 23:59 UTC, December 31, 2021.
  • There is no ranking of activity. Converting larger amounts of KAVA or doing multiple conversions will not affect your chances of winning. Winning addresses for all prize pools and tiers will be selected at random.
  • Winners for both prize pools will be randomized on-chain and announced on June 22, 2022, on the Kava Twitter.
  • Prizes will be paid out on-chain from the Kava community pool via a KAVA governance vote. A proposal will be submitted on June 22, 2022. Assuming it passes, winners will receive their prizes directly to their Kava wallet on June 29, 2022.
  • Eligibility is not a guarantee of a prize. Winners may not receive their prizes if the Kava DAO votes against the proposal in the majority.
  • Sharing the event on Twitter or other social media platforms will not impact your chances of winning in any way. This is a purely on-chain giveaway administered by the Kava DAO.

And that’s it. Best of luck, #KavaSquad!
