The PolkaEx Dusty Testnet Campaign has been Launched!

After a successful testnet campaign on Ropsten, an Ethereum testnet, PolkaEx has been launched on Dusty, a testnet of Astar and you can access the testnet DApp at

This campaign will open another opportunity for early supporters to experience how most features of PolkaEx will work on Astar once it hits the mainnet.

There are PolkaEx rewards at stake in this campaign too. Here’s another chance for previous winners to earn more or other community members to earn some free PKEX tokens that will be claimable after launch. And you will have a chance to win a valuable whitelist spot that can directly participate in the IDO of PolkaEx’s Private Pool.

This campaign has been divided into two. You can find the full details and instructions for the campaign below:

DATE: Try out PolkaEx Dusty Testnet between September 4th — September 9th UTC. The campaign lasts 5 days.
