Advantage for Solanium Stakers

Solanium stakers will gain a distinct advantage in the Aethir Node Sale.

Aethir has allocated nodes under Tier 4–10 to the Solanium community. This allocation ensures that Solanium stakers secure the best prices, better than what will be accessible during the public sale.

It’s worth noting that once Aethir goes public, the node prices are expected to reach approximately $2,000 or more.

Due to the limited number of nodes available and that each are sold in whole units (e.g., no fractional purchase), the sale procedure deviates from the conventional IDO model. In the initial 24 hours, Solanium Tier 5 stakers will have priority for purchasing Checker Nodes. In the event of a surplus of Tier 5 stakers compared to the available nodes, those with the highest xSLIM holdings will be prioritised.

After the 24 hours, Tier 4 stakers will then gain access to purchase nodes. Subsequently, any remaining supply after 24 hours will be distributed through a lottery system among Tier 1 — Tier 3 stakers, with higher-tier stakers enjoying increased odds in the lottery.

Stakers seeking a higher chance of allocation may participate in our social tasks, where accumulated points can increase the likelihood of allocation.

For those eyeing Aethir’s own public sale on their platform (with prices expected to be higher and on a first-come-first-serve basis), Solanium has an exclusive offer. Participants can utilise the code ‘solanium’ to receive a 10% discount on the public sale price.

Being a part of the Solanium community has its values during groundbreaking opportunities! 😉

Do take note that this sale is not to purchase the ATH token, but to purchase a (NFT) license to run a Checker Node. The NFT (Checker Node) is non transferable for the first year. The rewards received by running the node come with linear vesting over 4 years with 6 months auto-staking (can be un-staked early with a penalty). A quarterly bonus is rewarded for those who maintained uptime of >95%.

What’s Next?

While not yet confirmed, it has been speculated that Aethir will host an airdrop for its node holders.
