How can I know that I am on the official TrustPad page?

The official TrustPad site is trustpad.io. There are NO other sites for TrustPad. Other sites are created by scammers. Important: Always check the right TrustPad site, X account, Announcement channel and Telegram group chat from CoinMarketCap.com, and then you can follow the links on trustpad.io like TrustPad's Medium page. Don't ever follow other links.

Someone sent me a private message in Telegram and told me they were from TrustPad. Are they real team members?

Admins or the TrustPad team members never DM you first. Never give your info or any credentials like your wallet seed phrase or keys to anybody. Never follow links or open documents sent by these actors, consider them always scammers. Just report spam and block them.

How to participate in IDOs / sales?

  1. TrustPad's token is TPAD. TPAD enables its holders to participate in IDOs, INOs and other sales (seed, private and strategic). Check the desired level you want and purchase that amount of TPAD.

  2. Stake the TPAD into an IDO or IDO LP pool. Either stake it in an IDO pool (14d - 1095d) on the staking page or create a TPAD-BNB LP and stake it in an IDO LP staking pool and earn simultaneously passive income in TPAD while enjoying the ROI of the projects you participate in. The 1095-day also provides APR in TPAD.

  3. Register in an IDO or other sale you want to participate in. Go to its sale page. You can search sales from the sales page.

  4. On the sale page, buy the tokens. Approve the use of USTD. Then during the normal sale time purchase the allocated amount using USDT. Purchase them before the FCFS rounds.

  5. You can take part in the FCFS sale after the normal sale time. It has 4 equally long rounds allowing you to buy more (+50%, +100%, +200% & unlimited).

  6. Claim your tokens at the claiming time or whenever you choose to claim them. Stake, trade or do whatever you see fit with the project tokens.

That it is. In this way, you can get early access to the most promising blockchain projects.

What are the steps of an IDO / sale?

  1. IDO / sale registration opens normally 48 hours before the IDO / sale, purchase time window starts.

  2. Registration closes 4 hours before the sale start of the sale.

  3. If there is a whitelisting competition for the sale, then whitelist winners are picked. They can be seen on the sale page.

  4. The base allocation is calculated for the sale. It is formed by the number of participants and their respective allocation multipliers. Your buying allowance for a sale is calculated according to the formula: the base allocation of the sale × your effective allocation multiplier.

  5. The sale time window starts. The registered participants with guaranteed allocation and whitelist winners are allowed to fund, buy their allocations on the sale page.

  6. The FCFS phase of 4 equally long rounds starts normally 20 minutes before the sale ends completely.

  7. Once the sale is finished, the allocation data is collected. The token distribution and listing information can be found on the TrustPad Announcements Telegram channel or in the project's social media channels listed on the sale page.

  8. Claiming starts. There is a specific date and time when claiming is enabled on the sale page. The sale participants are then allowed to claim their purchased tokens according to the vesting schedule stated on the sale page.

Detailed guide

What is FCFS (first come, first serve) sale phase?

If the sale is not sold out during the main sale time, the FCFS (first come, first served) sale phase starts. 20 minutes to 1 hour is allocated to the FCFS phase. The total duration varies from sale to sale depending on the sale raise and market conditions.

The FCFS phase consists of 4 rounds with the same duration. Each round offers a higher additional allocation. The FCFS rounds and their extra allocation multipliers: 1. +50% – 1.5× 2. +100% – 2× 3. +200% – 3× 4. Unlimited

Normally the sale sells out during the first round of the FCFS sale phase. Hence, it is beneficial for you to have a higher allocation multiplier allowing you to buy a higher amount during the main sale time.

Who can participate in the FCFS sales?

The first two rounds are open only for the registered participants. The last two rounds are open for all the TPAD stakers regardless of their registration. Whitelisted users are not allowed to take part in the FCFSes.

Sometimes demand for a project might be very high, hence only a certain duration stakers are allowed to take part in the first FCFS round. For example, the sale may be limited to the 365-day or longer-duration stakers. Echelon might also be set to be a limiting factor in the FCFS eligibility.

How is the FCFS allocation calculated?


IDO / sale base allocation: 1× = $20

Your level: ASSOCIATE

Your default allocation multiplier: 15×

Your staking pool: 365-day

Your allocation booster for the staking pool: +180 / 2.8×

Your effective allocation multiplier: 15 x 2.8 = 42×

Your allocation: 42 × $10 = $420. That is how much you can buy during the normal round.

Once the FCFS phase starts, you can buy more:

FCFS phase duration: 20 minutes, four 5-minute rounds

1st round: First 5 minutes of the FCFS: +50% extra to your initial allocation, $420 + $210 = $630 in total.

2nd round: 5 - 10 minutes: +100%, $420 + $420 = $840 in total

3rd round: 10-15 minutes: +200%, $420 + $840 = $1260 in total

4th round: Last 5 minutes until the end of sale: unlimited. Note: Usually the FCFSes do not reach the 2nd round.

How can I participate in the FCFS sale?

When you have first purchased during the main sale phase, you are already approved to buy during the FCFS phase. If you are not registered for the sale, you have to first approve the use of USDT for the sale and then you are allowed to take part in the sale at the third FCFS round if the sale reaches that.

The purchase is made normally on the sale page according to your extra allocation. You need to make an extra purchase during every extra FCFS round if you want to take part in all of them.

What are the levels / tiers?

TrustPad uses a level (or tier) system to determine the amount of guaranteed allocation a participant is entitled to. These levels start from 20 000 TPAD (PARTAKER) being staked in the IDO staking pool and go up to 10 000 000 TPAD (SINGULARITY). The number of sale participants and their allocation multiplier designated to their level calculate how much allocation is provided per a base allocation, which is set once the registration period closes shortly before the start of the raise.

What does the staking duration matter? What does it pay to stake for longer?

There are different staking durations to choose: 14, 30, 60, 90, 180, 365, 730 and 1095 days.

The 1095-day pool, the True Loyalist pool, will provide the highest possible perks and benefits like APR in TPAD, redistribution rewards like the DH rewards and airdrops (free tokens) in the incubation and close-collaboration projects. Some of the special perks and benefits might also be issued to the 365 and 730-day pool stakers.

The main benefit of staking in a longer-period pool is to attain a better allocation booster, more allocations in the sales.

What is the difference between Guaranteed (G), All-Access Guaranteed and Super All-Access Guaranteed (SAAG) echelons?

Along with the tiers, there are three echelons, Guaranteed (G), All-Access Guaranteed (AAG) and Super All-Access Guaranteed (SAAG). Seed, strategic and private sales might be restricted to AAG+ echelon tiers only. That means that only AAG and SAAG members can participate in these sales unless defined otherwise. The AAG echelon members enjoy higher allocation boosters and the SAAG members are even higher than AAG.

What are allocation boosters?

Different echelons provide different allocation boosters. The higher your echelon, the higher is your allocation booster. Also, the longer your staking period, the higher is your allocation booster. The staking duration is the main determiner in the allocation boosters.

What are whitelist competitions?

Some projects have also whitelist competitions in which one can acquire an entry-level allocation for a project.

Do I need to restake for each IDO / sale?

No. You are eligible for any sale as long as your $TPAD remains staked.

Can I unstake after an IDO / sale?

Once you stake your tokens, they are locked. The lock period depends on the specific pool you staked in: There are pools from 14 to 1095 days.

Do I have to stake my $TPAD before an IDO / sale to qualify?

No, TrustPad does not implement a pre-IDO staking policy. Just stake your tier and register in the IDO / sale before the registration period ends.

What are the Diamond Hands (DH) rules?

All the IDOs and other sales are under the Diamond Hands (DH) rules. You have to keep the TPAD tier you purchased project tokens as long as there is a vesting, distribution period left for the tokens. So if you unstake your TPAD level before the vesting ends, you are no longer entitled to get future vestings of all projects you participated in.

If your tier is unstaked for 72 hours or more, then all of your future vesting will be forfeited.

All the forfeited project tokens will be redistributed to 1095-day pool stakers according to sale participation (DH75) and pool share amounts (DH25).

More info about the Diamond Hands rules.

What if I unstake or do not restake my tier before the vesting period ends?

If the tier you used to purchase project tokens remains unstaked or not restaked after maturity, then all the future vestings of all of the projects you took part in will be relinquished i.e. lost. You are only required to keep the tier you used to be staked, so you are allowed to downgrade your tier to that level if you later upgrade to a higher tier.

More info about the Diamond Hands rules.

How can I earn the Diamond Hands rewards?

You have to stake your tier in the True Loyalist pool, 1095-day staking.

More info about the Diamond Hands rules.

I have staked X $TPAD and have Y level, yet the pool page shows 'You level NONE is too low to participate'. Why?

To participate in an IDO / sale you need to register for that particular sale.

I have registered for an upcoming IDO / sale with a certain amount of $TPAD already staked. If I purchase more $TPAD and stake them after registering, will my level be upgraded?

Upgrading your level will not immediately affect the sales you registered for. But you can re-register in the sale with a higher level if the registration period is still open. So, you can buy a higher tier and stake it, just remember to re-register.

Do I have to register for each IDO / sale?

Yes. This way we can ensure only stakers who want to participate are considered for the base allocation calculation for that sale. This gives a better, bigger allocation for the participants.

For IDO / sale registration purposes, is there any benefit to staking an amount slightly over the tier requirement?

No, any amount between the predetermined number of $TPAD in the level system will be rounded down. So, 20 000 to 39 999 $TPAD will qualify you for the PARTAKER tier. However, note that the exact amount of $TPAD will determine the APR you will receive for the staking amount. Note also that if you are staking in the 1095-day pool, the amount you stake will determine the Diamond Hands 25% (DH25) rewards. This means that every TPAD you stake will increase your DH25 rewards.

More of the DH rewards. Note additionally that if you stake all your $TPAD, then none of it will be visible in the wallet to the hackers.

When will I find out about my allocation?

The allocations for each sale will be calculated and released shortly after the registration period ends. The amount you will receive depends on the number of participants, their respective effective tiers and the sale raise, amount.

How long do I have to fund, buy my IDO allocation?

The sale duration depends on the sale project, normally the main sale duration is 23 hours 40 minutes. You can see the timeline for the registration start/end, sale start/end and FCFS phase start on the sale page.

What can I fund my allocation with?

Normally you can buy the project tokens with USDT. You can see the required buying token from the sale page.

How do I find the token address for the project I just invested in?

Generally, the official address will be shared by the respective projects. Also, you can see it on the sale page (you might need to refresh the page), as soon as the TrustPad team receives this information. The contract address is also shared in the TrustPad announcement channel.
