Orion Protocol announces DAO Maker as the second partner to utilize Orion Launchpad Liquidity: enabling launchpads to list incubated projects on their own swap DEX with the liquidity of the entire market.
Orion Protocol will aggregate the liquidity of every crypto exchange into one decentralized platform: providing a decentralized gateway to the entire market. Its liquidity solutions for crypto projects, blockchains, and exchanges built now include Orion Launchpad Liquidity for incubators.
This enables the launch of incubated projects on a launchpad’s own platform, via a seamless whitelabel swap DEX connected to the entire market. With Orion’s solution, incubated projects can raise funds on the launchpad platform, and list on the launchpad’s swap immediately afterwards: reducing friction, improving customer experience, and generating revenue.
DAO Maker creates growth technologies and funding frameworks for startups, while simultaneously reducing risks for investors. Over 2+ years, DAO Maker's platform has raised nearly $40M for projects who now have a cumulative market cap over $3.5 billion, including Orion Protocol and Elrond.
DAO Maker has created a compliant, retail-oriented funding platform, while pioneering in-built downside protection mechanisms for buyers and acceleration tools to boost success for startups. Orion Launchpad Liquidity will allow DAO Maker to further streamline their launchpad process: enabling the fundraising, token distribution, and listing on the secondary market all on the DAO Maker platform.
Projects fundraising on DAO Maker will have the option to deposit liquidity to DAO Maker's multi-investment platform, thereby creating an additional avenue for long-term token access. Post fundraise, the DAO Maker platform will carry native liquidity of incubated assets on DAO Swap. As well as improving the user experience, Orion Launchpad Liquidity develops a new revenue stream for DAO Maker - not only on transactions for incubated projects, but every transaction on their swap. The fee structure for this DAO Swap will be 0.25% per swap, rather than Uniswap's 0.3% (if the swapper holds DAO tokens).
While any launchpad can create their own swap to facilitate this, liquidity is not guaranteed. Orion Protocol aggregates the liquidity of the entire market into one platform and as such, Orion Launchpad Liquidity enables this bottomless liquidity to the launchpad’s swap platform, while practically eliminating slippage for the end users.
DAO Maker’s offering also includes a proprietary Social Mining platform, enabling incubated projects to categorize acquired holders, and to further vet, train, and deploy these users as skilled contributors to the ecosystem. To date, their Social Mining technology has provided white label community HUBs to over 100,000 end users in the space. DAO Maker will work with Orion Protocol to create an onramp for the HUBs of respective platforms, increasing the onboarding of new users through making any HUB's project token instantly accessible.
“We’re excited to launch such a powerful new product addition with a project within our ecosystem. The synergy is just natural: our users benefitting from Orion's brilliant technology. Given that many of our community members hold ORN from the funding stage, there will be great self-interest for them to drive volume on the white label swap/DEX.” Hatu Sheikh, CMO of DAO Maker
