To start mining Idena, you need to validate your cryptoidentity. It does not require the disclosure of any personal data (no KYC). You need to appear online when the validation ceremony starts and solve a series of flip-tests (CAPTCHAs).
To minimize the probability of a Sybil attack, the pace of network growth is restricted: Idena network participation is invitation-based. New invitations can be sent out only by validated users. The number of invitations is limited and increases as the network grows.
Please choose the platform where you have the most active account:

Send a tweet with a hashtag #IdenaInvite from your account. To get an invite, your account should be older than 1 year or older than two months and have at least 50 followers. The tweet should say:
Your cryptoidentity status is valid until the next epoch. You should prolong your validation status for every new epoch.
