Contributing to Composable DOT crowdloan with stablecoins: How it works

Composable Foundation

Disclaimer: Information as of Dec 16, 2021. For the most recent updates, dive into our comprehensive documentation here.

We have officially launched our crowdloan campaign to secure a Polkadot parachain, $LAYR. We are mirroring the strategy of our previously successful procurement of our Kusama parachain, Picasso. As with Picasso, our Composable Parachain crowdloan is the first project to accept stablecoins as crowdloan contributions for the parachain auctions on Polkadot, thus opening up the Dotsama ecosystem to a broader audience.

Below is a walk-through on how to participate using the ERC-20 stablecoins: USDT, DAI and USDC.

Enter into the Polkadot ecosystem

The primary aim for enabling participation using Ethereum-based stablecoins is to foster exposure to the Polkadot ecosystem across the board, ensuring a broader and more robust community of token holders.

Users are able to deposit stablecoins into Composable’s vault at a standard fee of 2% upon conversion, and we will use these tokens to purchase DOT, which will be contributed towards our parachain auction. At the end of the lease duration, users will be able to claim this DOT through Polkadot.js wallets, or choose to obtain their stablecoins back to their Ethereum addresses. LAYR rewards will be distributed to Polkadot.js wallets through a claim process.

Additionally, we have allocated 12% of our LAYR token supply to reward contributors to our DOT crowdloan with additional incentives listed as follows:

  • Users who previously contributed KSM or Stablecoins to our Picasso crowdloan will receive a 5% bonus.
  • Users who contribute in the first three days will be issued a 10% bonus. (until Friday 17th Dec 21:00 EST)
  • And 20% referral bonus to users who refer a sum of 1000 DOT using our referral codes
