2021/06/09 14:17:49

As one of the most prominent events in the crypto industry, all eyes are on the Polkadot Parachain slot auction, which has launched its latest updates. Recently, Kusama officially announced that it will open the parachain slot auction on June 15, 2021, and KuCoin will support the auction from June 9, 2021. Users can stake KSM on KuCoin to participate in the parachain slot auction to support Polkadot ecosystem projects.

1. What is the Kusama Parachain Slot Auction?

As the leading network of Polkadot, Kusama will first launch the parachain slot auction. Since the operation of parachains requires network resources, Kusama opens limited access to the parachain slots through bidding. Winning projects can rent slots and become Kusama's parachain. The slot lease period ranges from 6-48 weeks. Projects can freely bid and lock a certain amount of KSM during the selected lease period.

At the same time, users can also stake KSM to participate in the slot auction through KuCoin. If the supported project wins the auction, the user can get the reward provided by the team. However, the KSM staked in the auction will be locked over the lease period, during which there will be no on-chain staking income. If the bidding fails, the staked KSM will be automatically returned to the user’s Pool-X account at the conclusion of the crowdloan period.

2. Pros of Participating in the Parachain Slot Auction

On-chain rewards + KuCoin rewards
