Instructions: Summary of the whitelisting process

It is necessary that everyone who wishes to participate in the $SWASH token sale successfully completes KYC.

KYC Partner: Swash has partnered with Fractal as a KYC provider. They have proven success and maintain high standards around security and data protection. The Fractal team will be available 24/7 for support on the live chat, Telegram, and email. Be sure to stay calm and read all instructions thoroughly.

Whitelisting period: Whitelisting will be open from October 11th to October 25th and may be left open for a longer period at the sole discretion of the token issuer. Only 20,000 places are available and it is necessary that you conduct KYC and whitelist in order to participate in the public sale.

Personal information requirements:

The Fractal welcome screen

For each step of the KYC, you will need to provide documents to prove your identity and address. You will be shown a list of accepted documents as you proceed through the application. If more documents are required, you will be notified by Fractal via email.

To pass the KYC process, you will need to provide:

  1. Proof of identity

A live photograph of one of the following:

  • Passport
  • National ID – EU only
  • Driving License

2. Proof of address

All documents must be clear.

  • Be careful to not submit blurry images
  • Pay attention to the lighting
  • Make sure your submitted name matches the name on the document

3. Non-exchange ERC20 wallet address

You must also provide one ERC20 wallet address that will be whitelisted to participate in the public sale.

NOTE: DO NOT USE YOUR SWASH WALLET FOR KYC. You should provide your ERC20 wallet address and it should be a non-exchange wallet, like Metamask or Trust Wallet. You should participate in the IDO and purchase/receive Swash token with the same wallet. If you have already completed KYC through a verified Fractal account, you can use that to apply but need to ensure the ERC20 address participating in the IDO is the same as the one previously added in the verified Fractal account.

It is very important that you provide us with quality submissions and the correct information the first time — we will not be able to correct errors at a later stage.

You must be at least 18 years of age to participate.

Excluded jurisdictions:
You must not reside in: USA, Afghanistan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Central African Republic, Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, DPRK, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Guinea-Bissau, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Vanuatu, Yemen

We are not able to receive investment from within UN-sanctioned countries, the United States, or from individuals, entities of any jurisdiction or geographical area which prohibits token sales or participation therein and/or use of and/or access to the Tokens.

After completing the KYC verification on Fractal, please allow time for processing. You will receive updates on the status of your application and any requests for further documentation through email. The public sale will take place on Gnosis Auction on October 29th. Stay tuned for more information and guides relating to the public sale (IDO).

The $SWASH token

The Swash value chain will be powered by its native token ($SWASH). SWASH will have a variety of use cases within the ecosystem and will be used as a cross-chain utility and governance token integrating Ethereum, xDai, and Binance Smart Chain. It will also be fused with our constellation of partners and their native currencies, allowing for cross-fertilisation of value, increased adoption, and a seamless user experience.

Once the Swash expansion is live, use cases for the Swash token will include:

  • Incentivise: As an incentive system, ecosystem actors will be rewarded with Swash tokens in return for their participation.
  • Transact: All data transactions across all marketplaces, platforms, and applications will be distributed in SWASH. This includes value generated within the business intelligence and analytics platform (sIntelligence), the data computation environment (sCompute), and solutions developed utilising Swash technology (sApps).
  • Govern: Swash token holders can vote for projects they wish to see receive funding from the Swash DAO fund, decide on new roadmap developments or modifications, and to take part in token-related decisions.
  • Multiply: People can individually and collectively contribute the value of their data to social development causes and use it for value exchange both within and outside the Swash universe, such as redeeming earnings for products or staking liquidity.

The SWASH token metrics

Swash’s public sale will make 5% of $SWASH’s total circulation available for the public. In the public sale (October 29th), 50M tokens will be available with no vesting period in place, giving participants total flexibility from launch.

Building longevity into the token, Swash’s founders, team, advisors, and private sale investors have a vesting period of up to 36 months, ensuring a long-term perspective of the project.

Token Allocation


Swash is thrilled to be launching an upcoming public sale for its native token — $SWASH — while creating incentives for the long-term participation of all parties involved.

Swash’s token allocation reflects the commitment of the team members, founders, and early backers to work together to bring to life Swash as a mainstream solution in the data space.

The public sale will make available 5% of the total supply (50M Swash tokens) at $0.09/token. Early investors account for 22% of the token supply, while founders, team members, and advisors hold 25% of the total issuance. The Swash foundation will hold 15% of the total supply, while Swash will allocate 5% to liquidity provisions to ensure a sustainable approach to the runaway needs.

Swash is committed to the growth and broad participation of every token holder, allocating 14% of the supply to the DAO and 14% to community and platform rewards.

Token release schedule

The token release schedule and long-term oriented token allocations reflect the right incentives put in place by Swash, giving freedom to the community joining the public sale.

The $SWASH tokens available in the public sale will have no vesting period, allowing any holder to engage with the token right away. However, the vesting period for team members, advisors, and early investors is up to 36 months to guarantee long-term commitment to the project.

2. Why should I get whitelisted and participate the IDO?

We need to KYC blah blah. The IDO is the next best chance to buy some $SWASH before it hits the mainstream secondary market on DEXes and CEXes.

3. Do I need to KYC to receive my giveaway rewards?
