How to Use KicksPad

Navigating the Dashboard

Upon login, you will see your user dashboard. This area displays your active stakes, upcoming IDOs, and recent transaction history.

Participating in an IDO

To participate in an IDO in the Rootstock ecosystem, you must own some RBTC as it is the native Rootstock token used for transaction gas.

Check this guide to see how you can get some RBTC.

  1. Explore Upcoming Projects: On the main page the list of upcoming IDOs will be soon displayed. Check it daily or subscribe to email notifications in order not to miss the next event.
  2. Have some $RBTC prepared as we may have IDOs that will accept it as the investment token.
  3. Stake $KICKS: Some IDOs require you to stake $KICKS tokens to participate. Ensure you have sufficient $KICKS in your wallet. You can buy it on the main page of the website or on CEX’es where it is listed
  4. Join IDO: Follow the instructions to join the IDO. This may involve staking $KICKS and confirming your participation before the IDO goes live.
