DerpDEX IDO | Whitelist Guide

5 min readNov 14, 2023

The derpDEX IDO Whitelist is live!

This article will walk you through the process and how to apply.

Before we get started, if you haven’t read our deep dive into DerpDex, please do so here. Doing your own due diligence is extremely important and our briefing article should help you get started.

Also, we have recently updated our refund policy and we are excited to announce that DerpDEX have selected to go for our enhanced refund period, which gives coverage for a full 7 days.

Please also be aware this IDO will have a fairly small raise. The DerpDEX team at not looking to raise large amounts, they are well-funded and are focused on their launch. However, they wanted to give the opportunity for interested IDO investors to get in before their token goes public. This means the final whitelist will be quite small.

$DERP launch

DerpDEX is locked in to launch on November 22nd. Exact timing is to be confirmed.

DerpDEX has confirmed a top 12 exchange for their listing and they might have another in the pipeline…

They have a leading market maker supporting them on their launch.

Find out more about DerpDEX in our briefing here.


This is where you apply…

Please note, that the DerpDEX IDO will be on BSC. We support MetaMask, Trust Wallet, OKX Wallet and Coinbase Wallet. (DO NOT USE AN EXCHANGE ADDRESS). You will be asked to enter your wallet address during the KYC process.

We have strived to make the Whitelist process as simple as possible by limiting it to the completion of a number of basic tasks. We have put these tasks in an easy to follow form here.

Please note:

  • To be entered into the DerpDEX Whitelist you must complete all tasks on the form and pass KYC
  • SXS tier holders need to complete all tasks and pass KYC, even if you are an SXS legendary tier holder and have a guaranteed whitelist place!
  • All applicants will be checked to ensure that they have completed the required tasks

General public

This DerpDEX whitelist is open to the general public. Please follow the actions in the whitelisting task form for your chance to win a space.

However, if you are an SXS tier holder, you have a far higher chance of being whitelisted. Find out all about SXS tier benefits here.

SXS tiers

SXS tier benefits will be live for the DerpDEX IDO. The two major benefits of being a tier holder are:

  • Significantly increase your chance of being whitelisted
  • Massively increase your guaranteed allocation

Why do we ask for KYC

On the form you will be asked to complete KYC. All IDO participants need to successfully complete KYC and all projects that IDO with us have to complete this too.

KYC is here to prove who you are and where you are from. You will not be able to participate in an IDO if you do not complete KYC successfully

Our KYC partner is Fractal and doing your KYC is very easy. All you need is:

  • Your email and your Wallet address, the DerpDEX IDO will be on BSC, so please make sure you have a supported wallet.
  • KYC documents; these are usually an official ID such as a passport or driver’s license and a proof of address such as bank statement or official government letter. More information on this is given as you go through the KYC process.

If you have done KYC before then Fractal have provided a helpful guide for re-doing your KYC. Please just ask our moderators, in our Telegram channel, for it.

If you have any issues with your KYC at any point, please contact Fractal direct:

  • Telegram
  • Email:
  • Live chat in the bottom right corner upon logging in.

Note that at no time will Fractal, Sphere or DerpDEX ever ask for funds.
