How do I pre-register?

Users may create an account by signing in via


, alternatively click


to sign in via email.

Do I need to verify my identity to purchase Nauticus Coins?

ID verification is not mandatory to participate in the ICO. However, you will need to be verified before you can use the exchange so we recommend completing KYC during the ICO period.

Do you accept credit cards?

Credit cards are accepted through a third party payment provider, however we prefer contributions in Bitcoin, Ethereum or Bitcoin Cash. We also accept direct money transfers.

Where is Nauticus based? Am I protected?

Nautica Group (trading as 'Nauticus') is an independent remittance dealer registered with the Australian Government regulator AUSTRAC.

(search here using 'Nautica Group')

') Nauticus is a fully registered company with the Australian Securities & Investments Commission

(search here using 'Nautica Group')

') and is governed by the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth of Australia. Our team and office is based in Melbourne, Australia.

How do I purchase Nauticus Coins?

Create an account

and make a deposit in our accepted currencies during the ICO or presale period. We accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and a wide range of fiat currencies. Minimum purchase is 500NTS or more. 1 NTS = 0.00001 BTC

Is it possible to get a refund?

Refunds are not available, but you will be able to trade Nauticus Coins on our exchange for other crypto and fiat currencies.

Help! I have a question that is not covered here


What can I use the Nauticus Coin for?

Nauticus Coins can be used on the exchange straight away to access a 50 percent reduction in fees. Bitcoin, Ethereum and the Nauticus Coin are the key cryptocurrencies on the exchange and will be in trading pairs with most crypto currencies offered. If a user wants to trade TRON for ZCash for example, they will first need to exchange their TRON for one of the key cryptocurrencies, and then use that intermediary currency to buy ZCash. Users will naturally buy the Nauticus Coin for this purpose as it provides a 50 percent reduction in trading fees over the other options. A similar strategy adopted by Binance, saw the Binance Coin shoot up in value by 22,000 percent in the first six months (the past performance of a similar coin is no guarantee of future returns of course).

What is the soft cap and what is the hard cap? What do these terms mean?

The Nauticus Exchange will proceed regardless of ICO success; however the scale, functionality, number of currencies offered and the timeline will be adjusted accordingly. The soft cap of $8 million means the Exchange will proceed as outlined in the White Paper, with the funds generated going towards the blockchain mining center. Nauticus will not collect any more funds after reaching the hard cap of $88 million. The hard cap has been set to incorporate possible sudden fluctuations of the cryptocurrency market, providing enough space for market downturn post ICO.

We have placed emphasis on fairness and priority to contributors of our project. By burning unsold/unallocated coins based on public purchased pool (80%), we protect all those who have contributed. We also have in place restrictions for free/referral tokens and controlled release for team tokens. Ensuring top priority given to our contributers. Maintaining fair value for those who have supported us is.

Example. If only 500,000,000 NTS were sold, total final supply will be based on sold tokens at 80% public supply. Therefore circulating supply will be 625,000,000 NTS. Please refer to


and token allocation diagram for more.

So what's the fine print?

The Nauticus Coin is intended for marketing and sale to participants as a utility token for the development of and future use of the above-mentioned solutions. We take regulations and ethics very seriously and always cooperate with governing bodies. Nauticus Coins are NOT stocks or any other investments instruments or securities and should not under any circumstances be considered as such. A Nauticus Coin is NOT a share, stake, debt, security, or equivalent rights, including, but not limited to all future profits, shares, and intellectual property rights of the Nauticus Group that might receive future revenue. The Nauticus Coin does NOT represent any voting or governance rights to the development, operations, ownership, and decision process of the Nauticus Group. For more information, please refer to our Terms and Conditions document.

Am I allowed to participate in the ICO?

You will need to double check to ensure you are complying with the relevant laws and regulations of your own country. The laws surrounding ICOs have changed in a number of countries including China and South Korea.
