We received an overwhelming response and more than 120,000 Whitelist submissions, something that we had never expected.
The data was still extremely large even after filtering all bots, duplicate entries, and entries that did not fulfill all the steps required to clear the IDO. Hence, The Team decided to conduct a lottery to trim the final winners down to 33% of the filtered list.
Given that only limited members can participate in the Initial Dex Offering, Vortex DeFi has conducted a Whitelist Lottery to shortlist final 3629 participants to proceed with the KYC process.
Every lottery winner will be sent an Email from Vortex DeFi in the next 5 hours to finish the KYC process. Every member who successfully clears the KYC of Blockpass will be able to take part in the DuckStarter IDO.
Vortex DeFi is pleased to announce the lottery winners of the whitelisting process: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1S8jg2ZBDGbiKDz3bt6XTKfmu1NSPRRNPZrTO_-lrLS4/edit?usp=sharing
Please check the google sheet link above to see if you are one of the winners of the Whitelist lottery.
We will be sending an email to all the winners to proceed with the KYC process using Blockpass, and participants will have 48 hours to finish the KYC. We would appreciate it if you can do this at your earliest convenience so that we can finish this part of the process smoothly and in a timely fashion.
Please beware of fraudulent emails that may not be from the Vortex DeFi team.
We will NEVER ask you to send funds to any address.
The email we send to winners of the Whitelist lottery will only request you to proceed with KYC on Blockpass — no transferral of any funds is required on your behalf, so do not fall for scams and remain vigilant!
If you believe that you have been contacted by a scammer posing as a team member, please PM one of our Telegram admins directly and let us know.
Also, remember that Vortex DeFi Telegram admins will NEVER message you first!
For those who missed out on the whitelist, we will be listing on Uniswap soon after the DuckStarter IDO is concluded. The team will provide more details on the contract address very soon.
