Locking Period: 12 Days (288 hours)

Users are required to transfer a certain number of KCS (hereinafter referred to as “N”) to the specified KCS address iwantcoti from their KuCoin main account during the transfer period. (Visit the KCS withdrawal page, fill in the KCS address iwantcoti in the wallet address bar.)

KuCoin will automatically return the KCS to the user's main account after 12 days (288 hours) of being locked, based on the transfer time of each transfer, and users get an additional 0.0038*N KCS, a total of 1.0038*N KCS (The KCS during the locking period is not eligible for the KuCoin Bonus)

Users will claim the corresponding number of lottery tickets according to the total amount of KCS transferred to the KCS specified address iwantcoti during the locking period. (up to a maximum of 4 tickets per eligible account.)

Serial No.Total Transferred Amount (N)No. of Lottery Tickets
1.1300 ≤ N < 5801
1.2580 ≤ N < 8502
1.3850 ≤ N < 11103
1.4X ≥ 11104

For example:

User A transferred 200 KCS to the specified KCS address iwantcoti at 10:00:00 (UTC+8) on May 29, 2019, and transferred 500 KCS to the specified KCS address iwantcoti at 18:00:00 (UTC+8) on May 31, 2019.

KuCoin will return 200.76 KCS at 10:00:00 (UTC+8) on June 10, 2019, and return 501.9 KCS at 18:00:00 (UTC+8) on June 12, 2019.

So user A matches the condition of Serial No.1.2 and will receive 2 lottery tickets.
