YGG Token Sale: How To Buy

Quick Start Guide

  1. Go to: miso.sushi.com
  2. Scroll down to find the Yield Guild Games Public Sale. Click on the YGG banner to get to the YGG sale page and view the auction.
  3. Click “Connect” (the orange button in the top right-hand corner). Choose to connect with MetaMask.
  4. When you are on the YGG sale page, if the sale countdown gets to zero, you’ll need to refresh the page to access the live auction.
  5. At the YGG sale page, you’ll be able to see that the token price has started at 50 cents. It will keep going down over the course of the sale, all the way down to a price of 20 cents — unless all tokens sell out sooner.
  6. Enter your bid — you can do this by specifying the exact number of YGG tokens you want to buy (the top field) or the amount of USDC you want to spend (the bottom field). There is no maximum or minimum bid.
  7. Hit “Approve.” MetaMask will open and you’ll need to “Confirm” the transaction. You should see a popup to say that Metamask has confirmed the transaction. IMPORTANT: Some people have incorrectly assumed that this is the final step in the bidding process, but there is still another step required to confirm the commitment. Please read on.
  8. Next, hit “Commit” and Metamask will open again. You may want to increase the gas fee to speed up the transaction, then hit “Confirm.” You should see a popup to say that Metamask has confirmed the transaction.
  9. Refresh the page to check your commitment. Scroll down to the bottom half of the page where you’ll see a running list of commitments. Click through to the last page of commitments to see the most recent. Then, look for your wallet address and the corresponding purchase value — if you see it listed, it means the transaction has been successful.
  10. You can also confirm on Etherscan that the transaction has been successful. To do this manually, you can query your own wallet address at Etherscan to check your recent transactions.
  11. At the end of the total auction period, that is, 24 hours after the auction started, you will be able to log back into MISO to claim your YGG tokens.
  12. Don’t be late! The auction starts 10am EST / 10pm SGT on July 27, 2021. Make sure you are right on time, as this sale is expected to sell out quickly.

Step #4. Place a Bid

Place a bid in the “COMMITMENT” section.
Here you can see that the Starting Price for 1 YGG token was 0.5 USDC, or US$0.50. The auction price is currently 0.36468 USDC per token and there are a total 25M YGG tokens being auctioned in the sale.
  • To place your bid by minimum YGG Token amount guaranteed, enter the amount of YGG Tokens you wish to purchase in the upper field. The corresponding USDC amount, based on the current Auction Price, will update accordingly in the lower field.
  • Or, to place your bid by the total USDC amount committed, enter the USDC amount in the lower field. The minimum amount of YGG Tokens you will receive, based on the current Auction Price, will update accordingly in the upper field.

  2. If you are satisfied with this rate, press “Approve”.
  3. A MetaMask popup will then ask you to sign a transaction that approves the site to withdraw tokens from your USDC balance.
