FT Lottery

Fungible Token Lottery

PaySwap enables normal users/businesses to launch and run their own lotteries. An FT lottery is a lottery that rewards its players in fungible tokens.

You can learn more about how lotteries work by reading the documentation on the page below:

  • After you've deployed your lottery, reload the page and tick the Mine Only button to only show your lotteries. This will enable you to find your lottery faster.

  • For a list of all the functions you have access to, to run your lottery, click on the Control Panel button to view its menu of functions

  • The next step is to add tokens to your FT lottery, these are the fungible tokens with which your users will be purchasing your tickets. You can add as many tokens as you please but you have to also add a ticket prize for the token you are adding. To add a token, go to your lottery's control panel menu and click on the Add New Token button. Fill in the form with appropriate information and validate the transaction

Check from your new lottery's parameters' section whether there are some funds left from your previous lottery under the Amount Left To Reinject parameter

You can also check your previous lottery's parameters' section under the same parameter to check whether there are some funds left to reinject. Select each token one after the other and check that parameter for each one of them.

To reinject leftover funds into the new lottery, make sure you add the token of which funds are left over to the new lottery, then go to your new lottery's control panel menu and click on the Inject Funds button

Make sure the correct lottery ID is inputted, enter 0 for the amount and Yes for the Reinject parameter. Validate the transaction. You should confirm there's no more tokens left to transfer from the lottery's parameters' section.

Do this for every token that has some amount left to reinject.
