Claiming Public Sale QI tokens

BENQI public sale participants will be able to claim their purchased QI tokens from the claims site: https://claims.benqi.fi. Claims will be enabled on September 18, at 17:00 UTC.

Your MetaMask wallet will need to have the Avalanche Network added. The claims site automatically adds the Avalanche Network into your Metamask if it is not already on. Simply click on “Connect”, “Switch to Avalanche Chain” and click on “Switch Network” when the MetaMask prompt is shown.

Ensure that your receiving MetaMask wallet is sufficiently funded with AVAX to claim the tokens. For users that have no AVAX in their wallets, there are 2 options to fund your MetaMask wallet with AVAX:

  1. Funding your wallet from a Centralized Exchange
  2. Bridging funds over from Ethereum through the Avalanche Bridge

1. Funding your wallet from a Centralized Exchange

Multiple exchanges such as KuCoin and Binance support C-Chain transactions. The following example is using KuCoin to fund your MetaMask wallet with AVAX as it supports the Avalanche C-Chain, where the BENQI protocol will be launching on.

Ensure AVAX (C-Chain) is selected before withdrawing

2. Bridging funds over from Ethereum through the Avalanche Bridge

A feature of the new Avalanche Bridge airdrops AVAX into a user’s wallet whenever they move more than $75.00 worth of assets from Ethereum to Avalanche. This provides new cross-chain users sufficient gas to navigate Avalanche without needing to purchase AVAX off centralized exchanges. Existing users looking to purchase more AVAX or to swap assets can do so on the Pangolin Exchange.
