To celebrate the listing of Waterfall DeFi (WTF), AscendEX will conduct two separate auctions on October 20 from 1:00 p.m. UTC to 2:00 p.m. UTC. A total of 500,000 WTF will be auctioned between a “Standard” auction with 450,000 WTF and an “Uncapped” auction with 50,000 WTF. There will be 2,250 winners of 200 WTF in the “Standard” auction, and 250 winners of 200 WTF in the "Uncapped" Auction. Both auctions will be conducted simultaneously and AscendEX users can bid in both auctions with USDT + ASD (or ASDP) to increase their likelihood of winning the auction. Auction results will be announced on October 20 at 3:00 p.m. UTC. Please see below for additional details on each auction.
WTF Standard Auction Overview
Main features of the Standard Auction include price discovery with a minimum and maximum bid amount and participation by bidding 70 USDT + up to 25 ASD or 625 ASDP. AscendEX users can earn the eligibility to bid for additional WTF based on their trailing 7-day average ASD holdings or trailing 7-day trade volume. If there are more than 2,250 bid items with 70 USDT + 25 ASD / 625 ASDP, a random draw will be conducted to select winners. So please bid the cap to stand a chance of winning.
Detailed Terms & Conditions:
- AscendEX users with trailing 7-day average ASD holdings ≥ 10,000 ASD or trailing 7-day trade volume ≥ 30,000 USDT will be eligible for participation in Standard Auction. Standard Auction allows participants to bid for the chance to win a tranche of 200 WTF. 2,250 participants will be selected to win the auction with a total allocation of 450,000 WTF.
- The Starting Bid is 70 USDT, indicating a price of $0.35 per WTF, and the bid cap is 70 USDT + 25 ASD or 625 ASDP, indicating a price of $0.4 per WTF.
- Each AscendEX user can place bids for up to 6 bid items in the Standard Auction based on the trailing 7-day average ASD holdings or trailing 7-day trade volume resulting in a maximum user allocation of 1,200 WTF. Please see below for a chart illustrating the details:

Max Bid Items
• User’s trailing 7-day average unlocked ASD holdings in Cash Account (excluding ASD holdings under Staking) will be calculated every day from October 13, 12:00 a.m. UTC, 2021 to October 20, 12:00 a.m. UTC, 2021 based on the user’s holding period.
• User's bid quota will be calculated per 7-day average unlocked ASD holdings or 7-day trade volume respectively. The system will pick the bigger quota for users by default. Each AscendEX user can place bids for up to 6 bid items in the Standard Auction.
4. The ASD / ASDP bid component of the auction serves as a tiebreaker. For example, if there are less than
2,250 participants who bid at the bid cap, those that bid a greater amount of ASD or ASDP will win the
auction, capped at 60 ASD or 1,500 ASDP. The conversion ratio between ASD and ASDP is 1 ASD = 25
5. If there are >2,250 participants bidding at the bid cap (70 USDT + 60 ASD or 1,500 ASDP), a random draw
will be conducted to determine the winners of the auction.
6. Any ASD collected from this auction will be converted into ASDS being permanently locked up. Please
note that ASD consumption in the WTF Standard Auction will result in ASD release from the private sale
WTF Uncapped Auction Overview
Main features of the Uncapped Auction include price discovery with a minimum bid amount and no maximum and participation by bidding 70 USDT + as much ASD / ASDP as you’d like. The auction will close at your bid or better if you are amongst the top-250 best bids. So please bid aggressively to win.
Detailed Terms & Conditions:
- There are no ASD holdings or trade volume requirements for users to participate in the Uncapped Auction. Uncapped Auction allows participants to bid for the chance to win a tranche of 200 WTF. 250 participants will win the uncapped auction with a total auction allocation of 50,000 WTF.
- The Starting Bid is 70 USDT, indicating a price of $0.35 per WTF. However, users may also bid as much ASD or ASDP as they’d like to increase their likelihood of winning the auction.
- Each AscendEX user can place multiple bids but can only win a single tranche of 200 WTF in the Uncapped Auction.
- Auction bid priority is (1) ASD / ASDP with the conversion ratio of 1 ASD = 25 ASDP; (2) Bidding Time.
- Uncapped Auction will be closed at the USDT + ASD or ASDP price submitted by the 250th best bid. The ASD / ASDP bid component of the auction serves as a tiebreaker. For example, those that bid a greater amount of ASD or ASDP will win the auction. In the event that >250 of the most aggressive Uncapped Auction participants all bid 70 USDT + the same value worth of ASD or ASDP, the winners of the Uncapped Auction will be those that place their bids first. Bids submitted by participants 1 - 249 (i.e., participants willing to pay the greatest value of ASD or ASDP in addition to 70 USDT) may be partially refunded within 2 hours after the auction.
- Any ASD collected from this auction will be converted into ASDS being permanently locked up. Please note that ASD consumption in the WTF Standard Auction will result in ASD release from the private sale portion.
- From 1:00 p.m. UTC to 2:00 p.m. UTC on October 20, users can place bids in both the Standard and Uncapped auctions. Only USDT, ASD, and ASDP in a user’s Cash Account can be used as payment in the auctions. Users can submit bids multiple times. Once a new bid is submitted successfully, the corresponding amount of additional ASD or ASDP will be deducted from the user’s Cash Account. The last bid outstanding will be deemed as the user’s final bid.
- To increase the likelihood of winning in the Standard Auction, a user should monitor the 2,250th bid closely and submit bids that are greater than or equal to the 2,250th bid. If the Bid Cap is submitted by >2,250 participants, a user can still have their bid being included in a random draw by submitting the Bid Cap.
- To increase the likelihood of winning in the Uncapped Auction, a user should monitor the 250th bid closely and submit bids that are greater than or equal to the 250th bid. The Uncapped Auction will close at the USDT + ASD or ASDP price submitted by the 250th best bid. It means that a user can bid an ASD (or ASDP) quantity well above the 250th bid and potentially have their bid partially refunded. The logic of the Uncapped Auction is designed to achieve that all winners will pay the same price; Therefore, a user does not need to be concerned about paying a premium relative to other participants in the Uncapped Auction.
- For users who do not win the bid, their USDT and ASD (or ASDP) bids will be fully refunded within 2 hours after the auctions.
- At the end of auctions, winners need to submit the AscendEX account and auction confirmation code on Waterfall DeFi's official website by October 21, 11:00 a.m. UTC. Failure to timely submit the required information will be deemed as the users’ voluntarily forfeiting their bid item(s). In the event of such forfeiture, the USDT and ASD (or ASDP) bids will be refunded by October 21, 4:00 p.m. UTC.
- Bid Item Distribution Window: October 21, 11:00 a.m. UTC - 1:00 p.m. UTC.
