How to participate in the Overlay Protocol IDO



Get ready for the Overlay Protocol IDO!

We announced Overlay Protocol IDO at the end of 2023 and ever since community hype and support has been off the charts.

We’re grateful to everyone who has applied and can’t wait to bring many more of you on board as Overlay’s early supporters! The allowlist is now closed, and pre-selected users were contacted via email - keep an eye on your inbox 👀. All the pre-selected users are required to complete the KYC. Without it, their entries will be disqualified, and their admission to the IDO will be revoked.

There are 2 ways to complete the KYC process:

1️⃣ Keep an eye on your inbox for an email from the Overlay team that will hold the KYC link. Be careful: Always double-check the email's authenticity - [email protected].

2️⃣ When your application status changes to 'KYC open,’ users can do the KYC straight from the Dashboard. Just click on the 'KYC open' status.

Worried about how to check your application status? We’ve got you, here’s an article with all the details.
