      1. as a first step, you are required to connect your NEAR wallet with the Platform;

      2. after connecting your NEAR wallet, you will have to successfully pass the KYC process facilitated by Onfido; if you pass the KYC process, then your NEAR wallet will be whitelisted for conversion of your USN tokens to USDT and you will have to fill out a form made available to you on the Platform in order to send your USN tokens to Aurora Labs, the developing company in charge of the technical part of the project;

      3. as a third step, an offline software operated by Aurora Labs that runs periodically, will detect your deposit, confirm the KYC status of your NEAR wallet, and will return an equivalent number of USDT tokens to the NEAR wallet from which the USN tokens were received.

    2. At last, the Platform will show the status of your conversion, either as pending, completed or rejected. In the case of completion, you will find USDT in your NEAR wallet. In the case of rejection, you will need to contact Aurora Labs with your transaction ID in order to resolve whatever issue was found during the offline check.
