DAO Maker is an Ethereum-based platform focusing on increasing retail participation in venture funding for blockchain startups. DAO is the ticker of the project's native ERC-20 token. DAO is used for governance, staking and investing in startups.
Due to the inherent risks of venture capital, retail participation in venture investment is barely 1%. However, DAO Maker's flagship product, DAO Pad, aims to change this. DAO Pad is a multi-investment platform that allows retail investors to participate in early-stage startups with controlled risks.
Additionally, DAO Maker offers pluggable software-as-a-service, or SaaS, solutions for startups to help them with support and growth, including incubation, operations and advisory services.
DAO Maker continuously innovates to provide scalability solutions for its clients. For example, it has developed technologies like YieldShield and Social Mining, a SaaS solution that allows tokenized startups to create decentralized community ecosystems.
With 75,000 retail investors signing up on the platform in 2020, DAO Maker is now one of the largest ecosystems of retail investors.
DAO has a dynamic supply of 312 million tokens. Of the maximum DAO supply, 20% of tokens are allocated to the team, 25% are kept for sale, and 5% are reserved for advisors and future teams.
DAO Maker has dedicated 14% of DAO tokens for mergers and acquisitions, and 9% of DAO tokens will be utilized to fuel ecosystem growth. In addition, customer incentives and a DAO-managed foundation get a 10% share of tokens. The remaining 7% of DAO tokens will go to the project's foundation.
The promise of providing retail investors access to early-stage startups with controlled risk levels drives the demand for DAO and, consequently, the DAO price.
DAO Maker was founded in 2018 by its current CEO, Christoph Zaknun, and CTO, Giorgio Marciano. Zaknun facilitated $100 million in funding for another project via an initial coin offering. Marciano has 15 years of experience in technology development, including working on a 15 million euro international project funded by the European Union.
DAO Maker has a team of over 20 people, with experts from fields like business development, cloud computing, marketing and blockchain.
DAO Maker has raised capital from notable angel investors such as Fantom, Pello Capital and Woodstock.
DAO Maker is a fundraising platform built on top of the Ethereum blockchain. It aims to increase early-stage startups' retail participation by providing investment opportunities with reduced risk levels. Additionally, it offers easy access to retail funds through the project's platform for startups.
The ticker of the platform's native ERC-20 token is DAO.
To participate in launches, users must stake at least 500 DAO tokens in DAO Maker's vaults. Stakers will receive 1 "DAO Power" for every DAO staked in the vault. DAO Power is used to participate in the DAO Maker's launchpad, where users can choose among the offered investment methods.
Once you've staked your DAO Power into a specific sale, you enter into an allocation lottery. So, naturally, the more DAO Power you have, the greater your chances of winning the allocation.
If you win the allocation slot, the sale will automatically be funded by the USDC tokens in your account balance, and your DAO Power will be locked for ten days. If you do not win the allocation, you may spend the DAO Power again.
You can buy DAO from OKX exchange. OKX offers the DAO/USDT trading pair.
