DAFI Protocol SHO guidelines

DAFI Protocol Rules

DAO Maker is excited to introduce the new Strong Holder Offering (SHO) — DAFI Protocol.

DAFI uses synthetics for a better incentive model for every decentralized economy. The first protocol to enable staking, liquidity and bounties proportional to every network’s own demand.

DAFI introduces the first alternative since Bitcoin, to use network rewards for building a decentralized economy. Instead of directly issuing tokens for staking & liquidity — Dafi ties synthetics to each network’s adoption. This means that the token release & network demand is proportional. Meaning users are still incentivized when adoption is low, but by being rewarded later, not earlier. By linking these two factors, it attracts longer-term users to be incentivized longer, supporting adoption.

This SHO is non-refundable; all raised funds will be dedicated for the project upon completion of the SHO. For more details about the project, check our research page on DAFI Protocol.

DAFI Protocol SHO Guidelines

Only whitelisted wallets are allowed to send funds. Sending money from Exchanges may result in the loss of your funds, never send funds from the exchanges.

If you have won a ticket and contribute from a different wallet than the whitelisted wallet, your transaction will be refunded.

There will be two rounds for DAFI Protocol SHO

  1. Merit round — 135,000 USD

Merit round is a main public round where the participants sign in with their wallets for participation.

In order to participate you will need to stake at least 500 DAO in our Vaults. To access our vaults go to http://vault.daomaker.com. For the DAFI Protocol Staked DAO Tokens and Staked LP DAO will count towards the sale. Please note that once DAO are staked in our Vaults there is a 10 day unlock period. Unlocking before the end of the 10 days leads to a 10% burn of your tokens.

Use this link for staking your DAO vault.daomaker.com

Once you have a minimum of 500 DAO or more staked you can go and sign-in for the participation at socialmining.daomaker.com

DAO Tokens outside of the staking contracts will NOT Count for the SHO!

Use the same wallet you have staked your DAO Tokens with to sign-in.

The staked amount will put you into the specific tranche

Tranche 1: staking 500–999 DAO

Tranche 2: staking 1,000–1,999 DAO

Tranche 3: staking 2,000–3,999 DAO

Tranche 4: staking 4,000–9,999 DAO

Tranche 5: staking 10,000 DAO — 24,999 DAO

Tranche 6: staking 25,000 and more

Being in higher Tranche is significantly increasing your chances or getting a winner ticket.

We will display the amount of winning tickets per tier at the end of the staking period (16.03 15pm UTC).

Only staked DAO or DAO LP via using vault.daomaker.com will count. LP DAO will receive a multiplier of 3x. Meaning having 500 worth of LP DAO equals to 1500 DAO.

We will issue 300 winning tickets for 270 allocation spots.

Personal cap per winner will be 500 USDC. The SHO will be closed once 135,000 USD is reached. Participants who will send money after 135,000 USDC have been filled will be refunded.

Sending USDT or any other currency or sending from exchanges or custodial wallets will result in loss of funds.
