  9. How can I participate in the public sale?
  10. On mobile:
    Go to RarePizzas.com from inside the MetaMask app browser. Connect your wallet to the RarePizzas website. You will see a breakdown of the cost of the pizza and the cost of gas to complete the transaction. Press “BUY” to make a purchase.
  11. On desktop:
    Go to RarePizzas.com in Chrome. Connect your wallet to the RarePizzas website. You will see a breakdown of the cost of the pizza and the cost of gas to complete the transaction. Press “BUY” to make a purchase.
  12. IMPORTANT: You will need a minimum of 125% of the current sale price to account for Gas fees and slippage. You can manually adjust these parameters during the transaction process if you want more control than the default options.
  13. What is Gas?
  14. The money it costs to put the transaction into the Ethereum blockchain.
  15. What is a reasonable amount to pay for Gas?
  16. You can look here to see what the going rates are: https://ethgasstation.info/ if you want to visualize it, view it here: https://txstreet.com/
  17. Why is my gas so high?
  18. Gas fees are high in general right now. A normal range is anywhere from $40 USD to $90 USD. Higher fees than this should be considered an error; troubleshooting solutions below:

    If you try to buy a pizza during the presale without a whitelisted address, you get this error. 

    If you get this error during the regular sale, it's likely you don't have enough ETH in MetaMask. You will need at least 25% more than the current pizza price in order to account for slippage and fees. 

    If you have lots of ETH and you still get this error, manually increase the maximum gas spend.
  19. What is a bonding curve?
  20. A bonding curve is a formula that gradually increases the price over time.
  21. What are the bonding curve rules?
  22. Price goes up on a curved slope until the final two pizzas, priced together at 10,000 BTC for the pair. Just like Laszlo! You can examine the equation in detail on our Github.
  23. What will be the price on public sale and how fast it will grow?
  24. This is constantly changing. At any time during the sale you can check the current price at RarePizzas.com
  25. Do I pay in BTC or ETH?
  26. We love BTC, but we currently only accept ETH. We do have plans to accept more currencies in the future. Stay tuned!
  27. Do I pay in BTC or ETH?
  28. Check in your MetaMask wallet under the "Collectibles" tab. Or search for your wallet address on OpenSea. OpenSea automatically populates an account for your wallet, and you can connect MetaMask wallet to claim the account as your own.
