DuckDAO is a decentralized incubator that helps promising projects achieve their full potential by leveraging the investment power and buzz making potential of our community.

We aim to democratize access to investment opportunities that were previously available only to well-heeled investors and venture funds, opening up the closed ecosystem of early-stage crypto project investments to everybody.

What We Do

Instead, we believe in cultivating long-term partnerships with the projects we support, helping to establish healthy, natural growth that builds lasting success.

Our involvement with projects can be classified into three distinct tiers:

🐥 Tier 1 (Incubation Level): We work with projects from their very beginnings up until the points they are listed on an exchange — plus more in aftercare. Incubated projects benefit from a range of marketing, advisory, and listing services to help catapult the project to success.

🐥 Tier 2 (Strategic Contribution Level): We assist projects with social media strategy, including Twitter and Telegram.

🐥 Tier 3 (General Contribution Level): DuckDAO manages OTC sales and community requests — there is no direct involvement with the project.

Our community, which are lovingly nicknamed “Ducks,” are a crucial part of this process, since they help both finance and support the growth of our partner projects.

Decentralizing Opportunity: How it Works

This is achieved through our token, the DuckDaoDime (DDIM), which can be leveraged to access our community tiers — each of which provides increasing benefits for our community. In order to access each membership tier, Ducks need to hold at least a fixed minimum number of DDIM tokens in their MetaMask wallet (as determined by the Collab.land bot). Our current token-permissioned membership groups are:

🐥 The Duck Fightclub: 10 DDIM

🐥 Beach Club: 200 DDIM

🐥 Gentlemen’s Club (VIP): 2,500 DDIM

🐥 Diamond Club (VVIP): 10,000 DDIM

🐥 Duck Allstars Club: Top 10 DDIM holder

DDIM can be purchased on Uniswap or earned by participating in community events, such as interactive interviews (AMAs) with our projects. Besides our exclusive membership communities, DuckDAO also operates a lobby for general discussions. Users will be automatically removed from a group if their DDIM balance falls below the minimum threshold.

Customers in the highest tiers benefit from a larger percentage of the allocation we receive from each project, and hence members in higher tiers have a larger personal cap. We try to ensure part of the allocation reaches all premium tiers, giving everybody a chance to claim a stake in hot new projects.

A Track Record of Success

This process has helped DuckDAO work with some of the biggest names in the industry in recent months, including Geeq, DeFiPie, and Fyooz, — each of which achieved more than tenfold returns on the public markets when compared to our entry prices.

Our incredible track record has helped us secure partnerships with prominent YouTubers, including IvanOnTech and Boxmining, who also work to share crucial insights with their followers, making the industry a more accessible place for all.
