What is a Parachain and a Crowdloan?

Solutions for Art


Being a Polkadot parachain allows Unique Network to tap into the interoperability, scalability, and security of the Polkadot Network, so that we can focus on what we do best - enabling composable and advanced features for NFTs.


Parachains are leased to networks like Unique Network for fixed periods, and crowdloans are a means to crowdsource the capital required for the lease. Unique Network is launching a crowdloan to rally support from our community and raise the capital (DOT) required to lease a parachain for the full lease period (LP).

DOT Tokens

Supporters who pledge DOT to the crowdloan will receive UNQ as rewards. The DOT are bonded or locked into a Polkadot sponsored account for the period of the lease, afterwhich the DOT will be returned to contributors. Contributed DOT are never directly accessible by Unique at any point of the crowdloan or lease period.

How does the Crowdloan Work?

Unique Network will open up the crowdloan to seek community support, which the community and investors can provide by pledging their DOT.

Once Unique Network wins the parachain slot auction, we will launch on the Polkadot Network and start distributing the UNQ tokens to the crowdloan contributors.

The UNQ token rewards will be sent to the same address you used to contribute to the crowdloan.

What is a crowdloan?

A crowdloan is a way for new projects on Polkadot and Kusama to get the support they need to connect to the Kusama or Polkadot network as a parachain.

Crowdloan contributions (DOT tokens for Polkadot project crowdloans) are bonded or locked into a Polkadot sponsored account for a designated period of time (a “lock period”).

While bonded, the contributed DOT tokens can be used to cover the cost of parachain lease (the amount needed to secure a parachain slot on the Polkadot network), but are never directly accessible by the project. If the project is unable to win an auction, the funds are returned to their owner and unlocked.

What is the difference between Unique and Quartz?

While both Unique and Quartz were built on Substrate, a modular platform for building blockchain, they differ in that Quartz is specifically built for the Kusama community. While Kusama utilises nearly all of the same code as Polkadot, it’s built more specifically for experimental projects that are looking to test and perfect scalability and interoperability. Quartz is the ideal place to jumpstart your plans for building your own NFT ecosystem/marketplace.

Can I change the address of receiving tokens?

No. The receiving address used for the rewards will be the same as the address submitted for the crowdloan. Remember to explicitly declare your crowdloan address as a multi-chain address in the polkadot{.js} wallet

I don't have DOT but I want to participate. What are the steps?

You will need to buy DOT from an exchange and transfer it to your polkadot.js wallet before you can participate in the crowdloan. In case you already have DOT bonded or staked, you will first need to unbond and allow a cooling period of 28 days before you can participate in Unique Network crowdloan.

How can I unbond my DOT?

To unbond the amount, click the three dots next to the account you want to unbond tokens for, and select "Unbond funds".

unbond2-d52d67307b98a6d945407c44bc3bfebc (1).png

Select the amount you wish to unbond and click Unbond, then confirm the transaction. If successful, your balance will show as "unbonding" with an indicator of how many more blocks remain until the amount is fully unlocked.

This duration varies depending on the network you're on and will typically be four times as fast on Kusama as it is on Polkadot. The unbonding period is 28 days on Polkadot, and 7 on Kusama.

Once this process is complete, you will have to issue another, final transaction: Withdraw Unbonded, which will be available in the same pop-up. You can also check how long you have to wait in order to withdraw your stake in the Accounts page by expanding your account balance. There is a tiny icon beside the word "unbonding" that will eventually become an unlock icon once the remaining blocks get passed.

Then, you can click that icon directly to submit the withdraw transaction. Finally, your transferrable balance will increase by the amount of tokens you've just fully unbonded.

Which channels can i use to participate in the crowdloan?

Unique Network Website (recommended)

  • Polkadot.js
  • Bifrost SALP on UNique Network Website

When can I contribute to the DOT?

Here are all the details of the MIntFest you need to know: https://unique.network/blog/get-ready-for-mintfest/

Are Ledger Wallets Supported?

Unfortunately no. Take care not to submit your Ledger hardware wallet address as the address for the crowdloan since you can do this without triggering a warning. The Ledger wallet is capable of providing a multi-chain address but it cannot cryptographically sign transactions on the Unique chain yet. Since the rewards will be issued on the same multi-address as the one you submitted for the crowdloan, you will not be able to access your reward.
