What is the Dusk Network?
Dusk is a blockchain-powered network that simultaneously guarantees transaction confidentiality and aspects of regulatory compliance on chain. Dusk is designed for a restricted set of focused use cases ranging from issuance of Confidential Security Token up to decentralized Darkpool implementation and secure communications. The consensus mechanism called SBA* is designed to be the bridge between privacy, and transparency for regulators.
Where can I find details on the overall Dusk token sale?
For detailed information on the structure of the overall Dusk fundraise, please see the Dusk website, the Dusk Telegram group and this article.
The below information it accurate to the best of our knowledge.
- One funding round, with no bonuses for anyone.
- The total maximum cap for the entire round is $14.4m for 50% of the total token supply.
- The Dusk team has a 12 month lockup period, with a 12 month vesting period thereafter.
- Dusk confirms that the 50% of Dusk’s total token supply that is not being sold in this sale is subjected to a 6-month lockup following the end of this sale, and is then subsequently subject to a 12-month linear vesting schedule. Of the 50% unsold tokens, approximately 6% are for the team and approximately 6% are for advisors.

The ETH amount will not change once the three day contribution period begins.

How does the Ethfinex token sale random draw process work?
Ethfinex has decided to run the token sales contribution process as a random draw as opposed to any other mechanism (e.g. fastest finger first) as we think this is one of the fairest ways to run a token sale. All Ethfinex users have a chance to enter the draw, instead of favouring those with a more advanced technical knowledge, or those who can be in the right place at the right time.

What is the Ethfinex Superuser Program?
The Ethfinex Superuser program is aimed at rewarding Ethfinex community members. Superuser levels are determined by the amount of NEC tokens that a user holders and entitles the user to a range of benefits.

You can raise your Superuser level prior to Stage 3, which is right before the first draw begins.
