What is the state of the launchpad sector, and what are the challenges that need fixing?
The average retail investor has traditionally been unable to buy into projects at a very early stage. Launchpads, where retail investors can participate in Initial DEX Offerings (IDOs), have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Recently we have seen a never-ending supply of new projects on the market. Launchpads have been popping up everywhere, cashing in on the investment wave.
Launchpads have become an integral part of every network's ecosystem. Binance has ten launchpads and counting, and the Cardano network already has three. In total, there are more than 70 launchpads in the cryptosphere. Nearly all of these seventy launchpads offer a similar model. Retail investors buy a set number of native tokens to qualify for one of the launchpad's investment tiers. The number of tokens purchased determines the allocation at the time of an IDO. The more tokens you own, the higher your pre-sale allocation. The native launchpad tokens are locked up for long periods, with no rewards, as a condition of being eligible for a place on the allowlist.
The hype around launchpads has seen many native tokens rise in price, costing around $5,000 to qualify for the lowest investment tier. Even with a hefty $5,000 investment you can find, you still don't qualify for a guaranteed allocation. One reason many major launchpads can't offer their members a decent distribution of tokens is that they join projects late. Launchpads accept a token percentage of about 1% of the total tokens minted for their community. Small allocations of pre-sale tokens result in complicated tiers, lottery allowlists, and many disappointed investors missing out.
Launchpads will often allow whale wallet holders to get enormous allotments that dump their shares immediately after launch or after a short vesting period. A massive dump of tokens creates tremendous selling pressure on the fledgling token, driving.
- 1.Are expensive to join.
- 2.Have overly complex tier systems, with the lowest tier getting few benefits.
- 3.Have no guaranteed allocation of IDO tokens.
- 4.Allocations can be minimal, as low as $5-20.
- 5.They have very few tokens minted for the retail investor.
- 6.Large 'whale' wallets take the majority of the share.
- 7.Many tokens experience a pump and dump and prolonged death from selling pressure.
- 8.Launchpad native tokens often fall in value after an IDO, costing holders money.
