It was since 16 August 2017, when the company announced that the eligible users can be whitelisted – guaranteeing them the opportunity to buy tokens in public sale, by joining its official KyberNetwork Slack community. Since then, the community has grown to over 26,000 users, making it one of the largest crypto Slack communities.
