How do users participate in the TrustBase slot auction?

Method 1: Users can participate in the Crowdloan campaign in Kusama and pledge KSM to help TrustBase win the auction. When TrustBase wins the slot auction, users can get KSM rewards; when the slot rental period ends, users can unlock all KSM. If TrustBase fails to obtain the right to use the slot through the auction, the KSM pledged by the user will be unlocked and returned at the end of the campaign.

Method 2: In order to maximize the benefits of users, TrustBase combines validator nodes and slot auctions. We will conduct the Crowdloan campaign and users can pledge KSM through the TrustBase official website.

When TrustBase wins the slot auction, users can get KSM+TBE rewards; if TrustBase fails to pass the slot auction, users can get TBE rewards. At the same time, KSM unlocks and refunds KSM at the end of the campaign.
