DAO Maker, the platform reinventing venture capital for the masses, is pleased to report new usage records for its strong holder offering (SHO), a particular spin on initial DEX offerings (IDO) focused on power users.
Specifically, DAO Maker’s DAO Pad has recorded 6,020 SHO registrations for Formation.fi, a new DeFi project revolutionizing smart yield farming. The number of registrations is the highest yet and corresponds to 14.4 million DAO Power committed, equivalent to $45 million in DAO tokens and USDC.
The SHO round for Formation.fi is the most oversubscribed and participated yet in the history of DAO Maker, with the project only offering $200,000 worth of tokens in the public sale, thus generating over 200 times the demand.
Formation.fi had earlier received a strategic funding round for $3.3 million led by the founders of iconic DeFi projects such as Bancor, Synthetix and Polygon, choosing to launch an IDO on DAO Maker to turbocharge the growth of its organic community of holders and raise the awareness of its product vision among the early adopters of DeFi.
Krzysztof Gagacki, co-founder of Formation.fi, said,
“We believe DAO Maker has the most organic and passionate community of investors out there, and it’s really amazing to see how much interest our project generated during one of the most challenging market conditions in recent months.”
DAO Maker’s SHOs are a new form of fundraising for public rounds that filters applicants based on parameters that indicate their propensity to hold tokens. This ensures projects receive motivated community members, instead of ‘mercenaries’ looking to quickly sell the token. Breaking the SHO record indicates both the perceived quality of the Formation.fi project and DAO Maker’s stunning growth.
Christoph Zaknun, CEO of DAO Maker, said,
“We want to congratulate the Formation team on the successful SHO on our platform. Despite the market shake-ups, we are proud to say that we’ve hit another participation record on the DAO Pad. DAO Maker works hard to bring the best investment opportunities even during turbulent market conditions.”
