Dear QuarkChain community members,
We appreciate your patience and support over the last few weeks for the KYC process. Now we have the KYC and scores finalized. It is the time to talk about our whitelisting process, and the crowd sale right after.
As we promised before, we’d like to make sure the process is as fair as possible. Therefore, along with this announcement, we also publish following information:
- The whitelisting code, hosted in a GitHub repo. As we mentioned before, the code for the lottery system is intended to be reproducible
- Applicants’ access code and total scores, of those who got KYC approved and scores >= 60
- Blacklisted users’ access code, identified by our community admins, for behaviors like selling access code or using multiple accounts
- A blockhash from a future Bitcoin block as a random seed
We will use the hash of a block generated no later than noon (12pm) of Friday, June 1st. Then, we’ll run the program, and get the final list of whitelisted participants. The result will be published in this spreadsheet.
For the whitelist, we will double-check to make sure no inadequate things or misbehaviors are in the list, for example, duplicate accounts with the same KYC information. In this case, we may remove those participants and fill them in with substitutes (who are also ranked by our lottery system).
We’ll announce the details of the crowd sale together with the whitelist results.
As always, the team appreciates your understanding and participation in the project, and we’ll try our best to make the process smooth and fair.
