How to Contribute
The second Parallel Heiko KSM crowdloan is now live.This guide will provide a walkthrough of how to contribute to our crowdloan.

Overview

Parallel Finance is a decentralized money market protocol that offers lending, staking, and borrowing in the Polkadot ecosystem. Similar to the relationship between Polkadot and its “canary network” Kusama, Heiko Finance is the sister network to Parallel. The Parallel Heiko crowdloan is live and users can support us with their KSM contributions.
The crowdloan contribution is hard capped at 25,000 KSM and HKO rewards will be given out to users that support us in winning a slot up to the target raised amount.

Pre-requisites

  1. 1.
    Install the Polkadot.JS extension on your Chrome or Firefox browser. Refer to this guide here.
  2. 2.
    If you have stake KSM, you will need to unlock the KSM. Follow the instructions here to unstake on Polkadot{.JS}. Note that this process will take ~7 days before the KSM is available and transferable for the crowdloan.
  3. 3.
    KSM. You need KSM stored in a non-custodial address. There is no limit to the amount of KSM you can contribute.

Rewards

Total Rewards: 5,000,000 HKO + cKSM
Bonus: 10% HKO Bonus reward will be given to investors who participated with the same wallet address in our first crowdloan last year.
