  1. Can I convert my acala/lcdot into an NFT and sell it to someone else at a higher price who missed out on the crowdloan? The acala NFT being offered to participants might in time be worth more than the entire dot loaned and acala rewards…lol

    Or you could have sold positions in the acala crowd loan as nfts granting the owner this many acala tokens, nfts, etc.

    Participants could then resell these nfts with maybe a 3% kickback to the crowdloan to those interested in the crowdloan who missed out.

  2. Good to see the progress and that karura/‘Acala is rewarding then community. Thank you for spending the time, effort and resources to build a strong and committed community. Also looking foreword to trading RMRK on Karura and hoping for Acala NFT for crowdloan participants.

  3. How can you buy back your LcDot after selling it? Will there be an exchange to do this? Say I contribute 100 DOT and get 100 LcDOT. Then I convert that to aUsd and buy more DOT. I invest that DOT into say Moonbeam crowdloan. 2 years pass by, I get my Moonbeam DOT back. How and where to do I sell my DOT for LCDOT so that I can take that LcDOT and reclaim my Acala staked DOT?
