One-stop-shop guide for DuckSTARTER users.
To participate in any project’s Public Offering on DuckSTARTER users must fulfill a few steps:
- Have a DuckTIER (unless T0 is available)
- Complete KYC with Blockpass
- Follow the project on Twitter and Telegram
- Follow DuckDAO on Twitter and Telegram
- Comment on a specific tweet
- Show up for the sale!
The whitelists are a way to ensure that users are providing support to the project, get connected to official channels, and have everything they need to be successful with DuckSTARTER. They are shared on the official DuckSTARTER announcement channel on Telegram and Twitter.
They are relatively simple forms that contain all of the necessary information for the users, such as which tweet to engage with, which groups to join, and a list of all of the steps necessary to become eligible for the public offering.
One of the whitelist requirements is having a DuckTIER (with the exception of sales that allow Tier 0 users).
First Come First Serve (FCFS)
Users compete to be the first ones to complete a transaction to claim their spot in the offering. Users only compete with other users in their tier.
Users are randomly chosen across three batches to participate in the public offering. The first batch has a very high chance to participate at normal gas costs, the second batch has a medium chance, and the third and final batch has low chances of successfully claiming a spot.
Here is a list of all of the tiers on the DuckSTARTER platform:
- Tier 0–0 DUCK
- Bronze — 2,000 DUCK
- Silver — 5,000 DUCK
- Gold — 10,000 DUCK
- Platinum — 20,000 DUCK
- Champion — 100,000 DUCK

To earn the Tiers, users will be required to lock-in DUCK tokens on the DuckSTARTER platform. Early unlocking will trigger a penalty burn, but the amount burned depends on how many days have passed since your most recent DUCK lock-in.
- Deposit < 10 days — 30% Burn
- Deposit < 20 days — 25% Burn
- Deposit < 30 days — 20% Burn
- Deposit < 60 days — 10% Burn
- Deposit < 90 days — 5% Burn
- After 90 days — 0% Burn
The count is reset every time you make a deposit.
Once you’ve gotten a DuckTIER you’ll see something like this to reflect your current DuckSTARTER tier on https://duckstarter.io/account
