It goes without saying that the form of token distribution for blockchain startup projects keeps changing in such a flourishing “innovation” field. With the booming of the DeFi trend, a new and more decentralized form of token distribution appeared, which id called as IDO (InitialDEXOffering) by DeFi users. Compared to IEO, the most important change of it is that it doesn’t require a license and marketization.

Due to the improvement of the DEFI infrastructure, distributing tokens with the method of IDO has become a hot button and trend. The IDO platforms keep updating and iterating, and other popular public chains have also emerged new IDO platforms such as Solstarter on Solana, Westarter on Heco, bsc-station on BSC, KList on OKEXChain.

In this article, we will go into details the KList distribution method as a more intelligent IDO platforms than most.

KList is an IDO platform that supports cross-chain and multi-chain. It was first deployed on the OKEXChain network and supported the deployment of multiple chains such as Ethereum, BSC, Solana, Cardano, and Polkadot. It also pioneered the margin system. Judging from the current market, KList should be the first IDO platform on OKEXChain. It is currently on the OKEXChain testnet and will be officially launched when the OKEXChain mainnet is officially opened.

KList has diversified IDO methods including fixed pool issuance, liquid pool and combinable MISO issuance, KMM liquid pool management and issuance. Combinable MISO was first proposed by SUSHI, which is to create various combinable tools in the form of smart contract packages to simplify the process of creating tokens and launching new projects on the exchange, it includes creating tokens, establishing a machine gun pool, creating a token sale strategy, starting liquidity mining, etc., and can promote an optimal market price according to the market and community heat.

For users, they can trade, add liquidity, and operate machine-gun pool mining after participating in IDO. The core of KMM liquidity pool management and issuance is to set the price range according to the needs of the project party, so that the project issuance will be carried out within a certain price range, and the market-making liquidity can also focus on a certain price range.

However, KList pioneered the margin system. The project party’s token distribution adopts a margin lock-up mechanism, supports a lock-up period of one month to one year, as well as the lock-up for 10%, 20%, 50%, and 100% of the total amount of a single token distribution, which effectively protects participating investors interests and prevents fraudulent projects from doing evil.

Compared with other platforms, the KList platform has more combinable MISO issuance methods, it added the margin system, and also supports KMM liquid pool issuance management. KMM takes into account the flexibility of Uniswap and the operability of Balancer. KList is an even more intelligent IDO platform.

In conclusion, IDO’s distribution method has been iterating based on pricing methods and participation thresholds, resulting in each platform having its own characteristics. From the market situation, the IDO platform is under-supply, and all public chains have IDO platforms. The early DEX led by Uniswap was gradually replaced by professional IDO platforms. In the future, the market potential of IDO platform will be determined by diversified distribution methods, IDO derivative ecology, project quality, etc. KList is here to take the lead in all of these.
