DAO Maker

First SHO for DAO hodlers


The DAO Maker team is excited to introduce our new refundable Strong Holder Offering (SHO) — VAIOT.

VAIOT SHO will continue the series of refundable SHOs at DAO Maker. Learn more about the rSHO framework.

Check the research page on VAIOT for more details on the project: https://daomaker.com/sho/vaiot

SHO Contributor Rules

Only whitelisted wallets are allowed to send funds. If you have won a ticket and contribute from a different wallet than the whitelisted wallet, your transaction will be refunded. In order to qualify for registration, your whitelisted wallet will need to hold at least 500 DAO Token.

Official token address for DAO Tokens is 0x0f51bb10119727a7e5ea3538074fb341f56b09ad (Please don’t use this address to send your contributions, this is only a Token address).

You can currently buy DAO Tokens on KuCoin, Gate.io, or Uniswap. For the sign-in process, you can’t use an exchange wallet.

Participants have from February 10th, 12:00pm UTC until February 12th, 12:00pm UTC to connect their whitelisted wallet via Metamask. Each wallet will be scanned using our chanalysis tool kit. Each wallet will earn a score based on the following criteria:

Main criteria 80%:

You need to hold DAO Tokens in your ERC-20 Non Custodial wallet. The minimum amount of DAO needed to participate in the lottery process is 500 DAO. In order to ensure everybody has fair chances of winning, holding more $DAO will increase your chances of winning, providing liquidity on the Uniswap DAO/ETH pair will also increase your chances of winning.

Bonus points 20%:

Earn additional bonus points for providing liquidity for any pairs on Uniswap, Balancer, or Sushi Swap. We have improved our chain analysis and now we are accounting Sushi Swap liquidity on your wallets too.

All registered participants will be run through a ticket-based lottery with higher chances for those who hold more DAO Tokens and provide liquidity in DAO or other tokens on Uniswap, Balancer, or Sushi Swap.

100 winning participants will be informed by email and on our social mining platform that they can move onto the KYC & AML onboarding. Once approved, users will be able to contribute 1,016.4 USDC to the VAIOT rSHO.

Refund conditions

Twenty percent of raised funds will be given directly to the project, while 80% is held in secure custody for 6 months. These funds are dedicated to refunds in case the $VAI token price drops below -20% from the initial public sale price.

In case the refund is triggered, whitelisted wallet holders can send 100% of their purchased VAI tokens to the DAO smart contract 6 months after the TGE and will receive 80% of their funds back. Meaning if the token price remains above 0.8x the value of their tokens would be higher than the refund value.

In the case that DAO Participants are happy with the outcome and decide to keep their tokens, 75% of the non refunded money will be sent to the SHO company, while 25% of the funds will automatically be used to buy back more VAI tokens and sent to the DAO Reward pool. There these tokens will be distributed to all DAO Token stakers.

Our refund policy will be canceled if the price level manages to stay at or above 200% for a period of 4 months.

The public sale price of VAIOT token — $VAI will be 0,1 EUR/$VAI

The total amount of VAI for SHO sale is 2,500,000 VAI or 250,000 EUR, or circa 302,500 USD

For the reason that VAIOT is conducting all rounds of sales in Euros, we will provide both EUR and USD rates to VAIOT, with EUR/USD fixed exchange rate of 1 EUR = 1,21 USD

There will be two rounds for this refundable SHO
