To celebrate KuCoin’s opening of the Canada OTC Market, KuCoin has also announced a prize campaign from May 26, 2020 to May 30, 2020. Users who retweet or share the campaign post made by the KuCoin Official Twitter account or Facebook page with the hashtag #KuCoinCanada will have the opportunity to divide up the prize pool of more than 10K USDT. Each day during the campaign, 20 lucky winners will receive 3 USDT.
Another campaign, called flash deposit in KuCoin, is for users who deposit more than 1200 USD any day during the activity period. The users will be ranked accordingly to the daily OTC transaction order completion time. On daily basis, the 200 fastest qualified users will receive 10 and 5 USDT for making deposits though Canadian OTC and other OTC respectively. When the Campaign ends, top 5 will receive extra bonus ranging from 100 USD to 500 USD.
