Crowdloan Bonus: NFTs that mine KSX!

4 min readAug 24, 2021

Ooh yes, we’re adding more goodies! In our SherpaX Crowdloan article, we eluded the addition of more rewards. In this article, we’ll lift the veil a little further and give you a good look at the added CID NFT reward! 🙌

Commemorative Kusama Auction CID

SherpaX has already opened its Crowdloan on Kusama and will be using this to participate in the coming Kusama Parachain Slot Auctions. As an extra incentive, we’ve added a batch of Limited Edition Coming ID NFTs! These CID NFT are ID cards used in

Chat, the truly private chat app that uses no mobile phone numbers or emails to sign up with. It works with a Private key to your wallet and these super pretty NFTs as identifiers!

These CID have a minimum of 1 digit, and a maximum of 12 digits. The lower the digits, the rarer they are. Then there’s also a 1% chance that you receive one with a watermark. The PolkaX team is also building the functionality to have these NFT mine KSX on SherpaX once it’s launched. Want to learn more? Start here.

Introducing the entire set

Let's have a look at the 4 Limited Edition CID who together make a set of Commemorative Kusama Auction CID.

  • Serial 2021–1–7 combines all the information contained in block #7924237 on the Kusama chain into the Kusama canary logo shape. This block is the first block where Kusama opened the slot auction.
  • Serial 2021–1–8 adopts the schematic diagram of Polkadot’s multi-chain collaboration, which shows the principle of Polkadot’s ecological operation. The generation time of block #7924237 is printed around the lower edge.
  • Serial 2021–1–9 dons a drop of water which envelops the Canary logo. We feel that the concept of Polkadot and the characteristics of water coincide. It all starts with a single drop, creating a huge wave of change and progression to a multi-chain future.
  • Serial 2021–1–10 has a medal engraved with the Kusama logo in both its text and icon form. This formation marks the indivisible characteristics of NFT and is signified as a medal of honour for NFT.
