They had announced the launch of their Initial DEX Offering (IDO) for its PMON token on Polkastarer exchange. The IDO is due to launch on the 31st of March. They had issued the Polkamon eggs via the Ethereum blockchain and over 125,000 unique addresses have claimed theirs. Fans of Polkamon have spent over $1 million on gas fees just for claiming their eggs to stand a chance to take part in the Polkastarter’s IDO coming up soon. Sadly, not all the eggs were hatched into the NFT, leaving some fans pissed at having to pay the gas fees.
