Claiming SQUIRT tokens from the pre-sale
The Squirt Game token pre-sale is hosted on the pinksale platform, and as such, there is a specific process for investors to claim their tokens as soon as the pre-sale ends. We want to explain this in more detail so that investors minds are put at ease once the pre-sale ends.
Firstly, if it wasn’t already obvious, the pre-sale can end either by:
a) The Hard Cap is reached
b) The pre-sale date ends (23rd November)
Either way, as soon as the pre-sale ends, investors will of course want to start claiming their tokens. Before this happens, we want to explain what is required from the Squirt Game team for this process to be finalized.
As soon as the pre-sale ends, the Squirt Game team are required to “finalize” the pre-sale smart contract. This involves the following process:
Step 1 — We must exclude the “pre-sale” smart contract address (0xd67B8fCA18E6347fE616fd1e88e7F1fe54Fe87bb) from the following function calls within the smart contract:
· excludeFromFee — add presale address, confirmed by the team using multisig
· excludeFromReward — add presale address, confirmed by the team using multisig
· excludeFromMaxTx — add presale address, and set boolean to “true”, then confirmed by the team using multisig
Once completed, we then go into our pinksale admin panel and “finalize” the pre-sale, allowing people to claim, and once again this final function call needs to be approved by the multi-sig.
Why are we telling you all this? Because each approval requires the Squirt Game TEAM to approve them. This is an important security element, which means no single team member can ever spend, transfer or withdraw any funds (SQUIRT tokens or BNB) without the TEAM agreeing on the transaction via a multisig signature process. Each multisig approval, needs confirmations from the team, where we call the function and pay the gas fee separately. And each time this is done, it takes a few minutes. This needs to be done a total of 4 times, and each time we have to wait for the confirmation approval before we move to the next confirmation.
This is why we are stating that people should allow 30–60 minutes after the pre-sale ends, before people can claim their tokens…because we have to run through this process.
Please do not panic if you cannot claim your tokens the very second the pre-sale ends. We are finalizing the process!
We will announce to everyone in the Telegram main channel once the claim button is available, and people can claim their tokens, so please do not panic.
The actual process to claim is very simple. You go back to the pre-sale page, and click on the claim button, and claim your tokens.
Please also note that you will receive 25% of your tokens for your first claim, as per our vesting policy. This ties in with our measures to avoid a “pump and dump” once the token pair launches on pancake swap, and we speak more about this in far greater detail in our other medium article, “Why Squirt is rug-proof”
