since there is a growing demand from new miners to get NKN mainnet tokens combined with currently high ETH transaction fees needed for the official token swap tool we decided to allow public OTC offers from trusted community members in this forum.
Nevertheless there are some rules applying for both seller and buyer:
- make a clear offer to new miners in the designated #otc-use-with-caution channel with a transparent price structure. That may include: Accepted payments, your fees and the process of trading in general.
- be aware that you have no guarantee if a seller is trustworthy or not. NKN team does not encourage you to do OTC trades at all. That also means that you have no guarantee to receive your mainnet tokens at all. We still recommend you to use the official swap tool (https://swap.nkn.org/) or using the upbit exchange for getting mainnet tokens. We will work on giving you secure and trusted alternatives for getting mainnet tokens easily.
To make sellers life a little bit easier here is a blueprint you can use to offer OTC trades:
ChrisT’s Binance to NKN mainnet token swap offer
About me: Around with the NKN community for around 3 years now - I’ve been active as a community developer and moderator since then. Together with some friends I developed nScan, nknx and vault. I am also working on surge when I got time.
The offer: Send me any accepted coins Binance offers and receive NKN mainnet for it.
Fees: For the swap I’m charging a swap fee of 10% - so if you want 10 NKN an amount of 11 NKN in other currencies is needed.
The process: Just send me a DM in Discord (Christian Busch#4459) and we will discuss anything else
Online times: 9AM to 10PM UTC+2 Wish everybody good trades and be nice to each other - if you want to get your message pinned please also contact me through DM
OTC trading is officially allowed until there are no officially trusted solutions on getting NKN mainnet tokens besides of the official swap tool. We will inform you if there are any upcoming changes.
