How to get D2D

We expect potential D2D holders to have some familiarity with Ethereum already. If this is your first time using Ethereum, please follow the additional steps provided by our friends of SpoolDAO in their LBP guide.

Get D2D via Prime Launch

The primary method to get D2D is by utilizing the Prime Launch app developed by PrimeDAO, which provides a clear overview of all parameters and allows for direct swaps using the Balancer V2. Protocol.

1. Go to to verify the Prime Launch URL and information

Read over the “How To” and ‘FAQ” for more details.

2. Click on the “Access D2D on Balancer via Prime Launch” Button

This button will link you to the Prime Launch dApp where you can contribute to the Prime (D2D) LBP. Do Cross-reference the information provided in the PrimeDAO Discord and Medium posts to be safe.

Keep in mind that the LBP finds a fair market value by starting at a relatively higher price and lowering the price over time by adjusting the weight ratios if there are no purchases

3. Check the Current Price of D2D

You can check the current price of the D2D token on the Prime Launch dashboard or directly on Balancer.

If the price isn’t agreeable to you, you can’t wait to see if others feel the same way. If no purchases are made, the price will decrease over time.

4. Connect your web3 wallet to the Prime Launch dApp

Connect with a compatible wallet, for example, Metamask, Walletconnect, or Trust Wallet etc. Accept the terms of services.

Accept the Prime T&Cs.

5. Enter the amount of USDC you would like to swap for D2D

Input the amount of USDC you would like to swap into the field and Prime Launch will estimate the amount of D2D tokens you should receive.

You can use other currencies that are supported by Balancer, but you may want to use USDC to minimize your potential slippage. Any other token will be routed through Balancer to be converted to USDC first before swapping to D2D tokens on the LBP. Ensure that you have enough gas to complete the transaction and ensure you account for increases in gas fees due to potential network congestion.

6. Approve Your Tokens for Swap

Before you can swap your ERC20 tokens for D2D, you must approve the smart contract to interact with the tokens in your wallet. Click on the Unlock Button and sign the transaction to approve your tokens. This transaction will cost some gas.

7. Click the “Buy ” Button to Swap for D2D Tokens

If you are satisfied with the estimated number of D2D tokens you will receive for the swap, click the “Get D2D” button to submit a transaction.

8. Wait for your transaction to confirm on the blockchain

Once the transaction is confirmed, the D2D tokens will enter your wallet.

Please keep in mind that trading ERC20 tokens (such as USDC or D2D) on Prime Launch requires two transactions: In the first transaction, you give Prime Launch approval to withdraw USDC from your wallet, and in the second transaction is the actual swap.

9. Congratulations! You are now a PrimeDAO member. Welcome to the community!

You’re officially part of PrimeDAO and have joined the mission to turn DeFi into a cooperative ecosystem. Come introduce yourself in our main virtual hangout, the Prime Discord.

Alternatively: Get D2D via Balancer

A shortcut for individuals that have already identified and want to execute a fast swap is by heading over directly to the Balancer Protocol and swapping USDC or any ERC20 listed on Balancer to D2D.

So, What’s The Best LBP Strategy?

The strategy you adopt will depend on your own requirements, however, there are some basic rules to follow.

Bear in mind that LBPs are a price-finding mechanism, so the price is relatively higher initially but may fall quickly if no trades are being made. You may want to consider factors such as the Fully Diluted Value (FDV) of all tokens and compare to some other projects that you feel have a similar value proposition. It pays to be cautious and not let emotions get the better of you. Participation in a LBP requires a degree of patience.

The Balancer LBP is an Ethereum smart contract so that it will cost gas fees. While you can make as many transactions as you like, it will cost gas every time. Making many trades will likely increase your expenses and thereby the overall cost of tokens, but Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) may be a viable solution if you plan on contributing a significant amount to the LBP.

Remember to adjust your gas settings to ensure that the transaction completes in your required timeframe. If you set the gwei too low another transaction could take place ahead of yours, and the price could be significantly different from the one you saw when you initially executed the transaction.

That’s it! If you have any further questions feel free to reach out to the Prime community via our Discord.
