🚦Integral prohibits access to its public sale from China, Canada, and the US due to regulatory uncertainty in those jurisdictions. Integral will monitor any access from China/Canada/US-based IPs. If you are visiting the sale website from those locations, you will see a warning message and will not be able to proceed.
In the event of heavy site traffic or possible denial of service attack, you may encounter difficulty when visiting the site. Please follow our Twitter/Discord announcement to learn about the current status of the site. The sale will run for six days, so there is plenty of time to check it out.
The landing page will be divided into two parts. There is a dashboard on the left, displaying the amount invested and countdown to the end of the sale. The right panel is an informational panel detailing the sale mechanics and other details.
After reading the sale mechanisms, offering documents, and investment risks, you can decide to proceed by:
☑ Clicking "KYC for Individual" or "KYC for Corporations" if you have not completed the KYC.
☑ Clicking "Connect Wallet" on the upper right-hand corner. Please make sure that this is the same Ethereum Address that you used in your KYC.
☑ Clicking the "Invest" button on the dashboard to proceed.
3️⃣ Signing Document
☑ You will see the Reg S Subscription Agreement and several checkboxes. Please read through the document until the end carefully. Then truthfully acknowledge the items listed on the site by checking the boxes.
☑ Please enter your email address in the box. Please make sure the email address is the one that you used for the KYC. Please use only one wallet address per email address.
☑ If you have done all the above, you can choose to click the "Proceed" button.
4️⃣ Choose your allocation
There are two options in this Public Sale Round. Option 1 tokens account for 21% of the token cap, have 3 years of linear vesting, and 60% discount relative to the listing price. Option 2 tokens account for 4% of the token cap, have 6 months of linear vesting, and a 6% discount from the listing price. Details here.
☑ You can use the slider to determine how you want to allocate your investment between two options. If you drag the slider closer to Option 1, the percentage of your investment going to Option 1 will increase, and vice versa.
Please double check the text above the slider to confirm your final allocation (in this case, 85% of your investment will go to Option 1).
On Day 1, Option 1 will earn 5% early believer bonus. This bonus is not part of the Sale portion of token metrics (25% of cap). It's funded by the Advisory portion.
For example, an investor buys 100 ITGR Option 1 on Day 1 and then 200 ITGR Option 1 on Day 3, then his bonus is 100 * 5% = 5 ITGR.
5️⃣ Decide the amount of investment
☑ After you decide the allocation, you can enter the amount of currency you would like invest in.

If you want to invest with multiple currencies, like USDC and ETH, you can fill in their respective amounts and then click the "Invest" button once. You must then confirm your MetaMask wallet multiple times (one time for the USDC transaction, one time for the ETH transaction, etc.).
Once your transactions have been mined, you can see your contributions in the "My Investment" tab.
