The ScaleSCORE Revolution — Fairness for the IDO Sphere
“ScaleSCORE is the heart of our ecosystem, SCA is the blood that it pumps.”
ScaleSCORE is a unique scoring system that determines who is selected to participate in exclusive fundraising rounds on our platform. Why did we create it?
Recently, the IDO landscape developed strongly into the same direction where ICO’s stalled some years ago. They’re only successful in hype markets, the barrier to entry is far too expensive and centralized, and the space is riddled with non-transparency (led by the IDO platforms themselves), exploitation of community members, pure luck-based lottery mechanisms, and non-sustainable motives.
However, we have a big plan to change the IDO landscape to a more sustainable construct, where transparency, authentic quality and substance, decentralized governance and most importantly, fair treatment and remuneration of loyal community members are of the highest priority. The first and essential step to that mission is the implementation and continued development of our ScaleSCORE system.
While other launchpads only take one or two purely budget-driven dimensions into account when determining who is allowed to participate in an IDO, ScaleSCORE is a multidimensional scoring system designed to honor and empower our users based on their commitment and loyalty, rather than buying power.
With ScaleSCORE, only 1 dimension is budget-driven. Therefore, with a commitment to Scaleswap, our SCA token, and the projects launching on our platform, anyone and everyone can significantly increase their ScaleSCORE over time.
ScaleSCORE is the key that unlocks doors to guaranteed IDO participation for the huge segment of the DeFi community that has been brushed aside and left behind by other IDO launchpads.
ScaleSCORE (with the primary influence coming from our SCA token) is the very core element of our entire platform. The prominent drivers are:
- Guaranteed pool participations 😍
- Release of new features
- Consideration in future weighted airdrops
- Increasing the voting power in our decentralized governance structure that is being built
Another important point to consider: While ScaleSCORE is currently associated with Scaleswap and our current service landscape focused on IDO launch pools, we will significantly enrich and enlarge our services and features in the future, and ScaleSCORE will play a key role in accessing these new functionalities and getting the associated advantages and perks!
ScaleSCORE Dimensions Explained
The below table shows all 6 dimensions that combine to determine an individual ScaleSCORE. As you can see, the score determination does not take place in a linear way but with an individually tailored formula for each dimension to keep things fair and increase the appeal of climbing the leaderboard.
Final ScaleSCORE rankings to determine guaranteed allocation for each IDO are determined by calculating the moving average of ScaleSCORE for a 3 day period prior to the IDO.
Without further ado, here are the ScaleSCORE dimensions explained:
Maximum ScaleSCORE if all condition are met: 4000 (only possible after 1000 days)

Our 360° loyalty system has a certain complexity and therefore, we want to showcase how ScaleSCORE works with a simulation. The example is based on the following general assumptions:
Days since Scaleswap IDO/ launch: 180 days
Number of IDO’s on Scaleswap since launch: 26 projects/ tokens
The current SCA token price is: 10 USD (180 days after IDO)
- John bought in total 1,100 SCA tokens at different times, the first time on the day of IDO 180 days ago.
- He sold in total 100 SCA tokens at various times times (never reduced holdings to 0 SCA at any time)
- The maximum tokens ever held = 1,100 SCA tokens
- John also provides currently 1000 USD of value in liquidity provision at Quickswap (50 SCA tokens + an equal amount of value in WETH)
- Current SCA token holding = 950 SCA in wallet + 50 SCA in liquidity = 1,000 SCA token
(which corresponds to around 91% from the maximum tokens ever held individually)
- From the total of 26 external projects, John currently holds 5 tokens that launched on Scaleswap (each > 50 USD worth of token at IDO value)
- On average, across all these external tokens, he still holds 100% of the maximum amount ever held
- John provided SCA liquidity starting 90 days after Scaleswap IDO/ launch (i.e., for a duration of 90 days and with a total LP token always over 50 USD worth SCA & 50 USD worth of ETH
This results in a ScaleSCORE calculation as follows:
ScaleSCORE Dashboard and Simulator
The ScaleSCORE dashboard and simulator can be reached via our app when clicking in the top menu on the diamond-shaped ScaleSCORE icon, or directly via the following link: https://app.scaleswap.io/scalescore.
The dashboard displays a graph with all ScaleSCORE dimensions. The orange line indicates your current scoring per dimension (of the address connected to the dashboard), and the green line indicates the simulated scoring based on the data entered into the simulator below.
Please note that not all dimensions can be achieved with overall maximum scores, which is only possible after 1,000 days.
On mouse-over of the single dimension lines/ data points, further information is displayed on the single points per dimension.
Next you’ll find the simulation module where you can simulate to see how certain actions will affect your ScaleSCORE.
Finally, on the bottom of the dashboard, the timely development of your ScaleSCORE is displayed in a classical line chart.

Effect over Time
The effect and the mechanisms of ScaleSCORE differ over the course of time. Apart from your SCA token holdings, it’s crucial to hold these tokens once they are acquired, preferably for a maximum period of time. An additional and very effective method to boost your ScaleSCORE is to provide liquidity for SCA at Uniswap or Quickswap (50 USD worth SCA + 50 USD worth of ETH).
All in all, loyal and engaged ScaleSCORE holders will always be able to maintain a distinct advantage over casual users with a larger budget.
Over time and with more projects launching on our platform, further dimensions are gaining weight and can make a big difference for each individual. The more projects you support that launch on Scaleswap by obtaining and holding their tokens (min. 50 USD worth of tokens at IDO price) the bigger the boost to your ScaleSCORE over time.
And regardless of budget, no user can catch up on the holding period dimension (except when the maximum duration of 1,000 days is reached). From this time onwards, no additional ScaleSCORE points can be gained by holding longer (but points decrease according to the user’s selling behavior and if 100% of the holdings are sold at any time, the score counter goes back to 0).
Why is my score not showing/increasing after I added tokens, provided liquidity, etc.
Please wait at least 4h and check your score again. Also, please check carefully that you are connecting to the app with the correct wallet address. Most reported issues of this nature are due to connecting to the dashboard with the wrong wallet address.
How many of each Scaleswap-launched token do I need to increase my ScaleSCORE?
You’ll need to hold a minimum of $50 USD worth (at IDO price) of each token. Please refer to this article for more details and official token contract addresses.
The ScaleSCORE simulator is showing a different amount of SCA than I have in my wallet.
Please note that the simulator is for simulating how different actions *could* affect your score and is not always an accurate reflection of your actual score. Your actual score is displayed above the simulator in this module:
I added Liquidity to the SCA-ETH pair on Quickswap over 7 days ago and I still didn’t receive an increase to my score.
Please verify that the ETH and SCA tokens that you provided are still valued at $50 USD each. It is important to note that the dollar value of the LP tokens isn’t likely to stay stable, and neither is the exact amount of each underlying asset that you provided.
Depending on the trading pair and the direction to the price of each asset, you will gain or lose one of the two tokens as well as dollar value. This is because the pool gets rebalanced as the price moves, people trade, and arbitrage traders help rebalance the pool.
Therefore, if you only provide the minimum amount of liquidity required, the amount of SCA or ETH you provided could easily drop below the $50 minimum for the ScaleSCORE LP dimension.
For your ScaleSCORE to be unaffected by these changes, we recommend monitoring regularly and providing liquidity with an initial amount that protects your assets from falling below the minimum ($50 USD ETH + $50 USD SCA).
How many SCA tokens should I purchase to have a guaranteed allocation in the next IDO?
First, stay tuned to our Telegram announcement channel for details about how many guaranteed allocation spots are available for the IDO you wish to participate in. Second, the ScaleSCORE system is about much more than your budget and the number of SCA tokens you hold. It is more beneficial to work on all dimensions in order to strengthen your position for guaranteed allocation.
What if I have additional questions or need more help with my ScaleSCORE?
SCA tokens can be bought on Uniswap (Ethereum network) and Quickswap (Polygon network):
