Key features of DODO Crowd Pooling

  • Liquid Market

DODO Crowd Pooling will provide a liquid market for the crowdfunded token, which will be managed by smart contract and trading rules. The public pool of crowdfunded token will be established on the DODO platform at the end of the crowdfunding period, and the crowdfunding price will be used as the opening price to open the spot trading market immediately. There can be continuous spot trading between the public pool and the traders. The smart contract will provide the standardization of trading rules, and the trading will be open and transparent.

  • Liquidity Protection

​Liquidity protection period allows a fair market balance between traders and project parties. The liquidity protection period is a measure of the amount of time required for the market to achieve a balanced trading volume. During the liquidity protection period, the originator of the market cannot withdraw the liquidity or force "buy" orders. This assures traders and investors that the market will not suddenly be dominated by a single party.

  • Whitelist

The DODO team can help you configure a whitelist for your project's crowdfunding campaign. This will allow you to specify which users are allowed to participate. Keep in mind that this is not the default option in the front-end, so you will need to get in touch with DODO team to set it up.

Note: If you need to configure the whitelist, you can send an email to : bd@dodoex.io

The content of the email can follow the following template.

-Project Name

-Project description

-Crowdfunding information (crowdfunding network, opening and duration, etc.)

-Whitelist contract address

  • Burning Mechanism

The tokens created with DODO can be configured to automatically burn a percentage of tokens with every on-chain transaction. This helps to ensure that the token supply is reduced over time, providing additional value to token holders.

  • Trading Fees

DODO tokens can be configured to automatically send a percentage of tokens to the creators address with every on-chain transaction.

  • Supports Supply Increase

The tokens created with DODO can be configured to issue additional tokens after creation, giving the creator more control over their project.

  • Delayed Distribution

We can choose to release tokens X number of days after settlement. We can also decide to distribute Y tokens immediately, with the remaining tokens being distributed linearly over Z number of days.

Process of a Crowd Pooling

The project owner creates a set number of tokens for crowdfunding. Each token will have a unit price and a specified amount will be allocated. There is a timeframe during which anyone can add funds and subscribe to the CrowdPooling.

The number of tokens each person receives will be based on how much they added. If there is more money raised than what was planned, the extra funds will be given out according to how much each user added. Over-subscribed funds will be returned to the users Itself.

After the crowdfunding campaign comes to an end, the public pool will be set up on the DODO platform. The price from the crowdfunding campaign will be used as the opening price for the spot trading market.


  1. When creating a crowdfunding pool, the project owner pre-deposits a settlement fee to the smart contract for the end of the crowdfunding period (currently 0.2 ETH for the Ethernet chain and 1 MATIC for the Polygon chain) .

2. At the end of the crowdfunding period, anyone (including the project owner) can initiate a transaction, which ends the crowdfunding and creates the public pool. The person executing the transaction will receive a pre-deposited settlement fee.
