The rapidly evolving DeFi space is set to witness some exciting times ahead as Instaraise — the first-ever decentralized fundraising and incubation platform on the Tezos ecosystem offers a whole suite of tools for upcoming projects to turn their ideas into a reality.

Main Takeaways

  • Instaraise, as a torchbearer of the Tezos ecosystem, helps upcoming and existing projects realize their potential by extending all the necessary assistance to succeed
  • The Instaraise ecosystem combines various features that make it quite different from its counterparts catering to other blockchains and even Tezos itself
  • Instaraise’s mission resonates with the industry sentiment and the platform has already gained significant traction among the cryptocurrency and developer communities

 

While various crypto launchpads are offering token sale infrastructure for projects on Ethereum and a handful of other blockchain protocols, Instaraise takes it a step further by providing end-to-end support, including the choice of an ideal protocol in the form of Tezos.

Why Tezos?

The Tezos blockchain offers a range of benefits over its counterparts, especially Ethereum, which is plagued by scalability issues, low transaction speeds and increased transaction costs.

The Tezos protocol is a versatile smart contracts platform with a self-amending feature that allows the community to upgrade the protocol without hard forks constantly.

Further, the Tezos blockchain is highly scalable and supports fast transaction speeds at meager costs, making it an ideal protocol to support large-scale, community-oriented DeFi projects. DeFi platforms built on top of Tezos protocol will prioritize not only scalability and speed but also affordability and a much broader reach — something essential to create any meaningful impact in society.

Being a relatively new entrant to the DeFi space, the Tezos protocol is still gaining traction among the developer and crypto communities. Instaraise, as a torchbearer of the Tezos ecosystem, helps upcoming and existing projects realize their potential by extending all the necessary assistance to succeed.

 

What Makes Instaraise Different?

Instaraise puts the concept of truly interoperable DeFi within reach. Functioning as a completely decentralized IDO Launchpad and Incubation platform, it brings all the DeFi stakeholders together while serving their interests.

The Instaraise ecosystem combines various features that make it quite different from its counterparts catering to other blockchains and even Tezos itself. Some of these features include:

1. Incubation and Technical Advisory for New Projects

There is no shortage of ideas in the DeFi space, but not all of them are feasible to implement either. However, a significant percentage of such ideas just need a nudge in the right direction to succeed, and Instaraise does just that.

A highly qualified team at Instaraise with years of experience in the DeFi and Tezos ecosystem helps new projects shape their ideas into fledged products.

As a part of this offering, they provide valuable guidance and technical assistance to effect necessary changes that could help overcome any shortcomings the initial idea may have.

In addition to its team, Instaraise also helps the projects tap into the vast resources and intellect of the global Tezos community.

In the long run, such connections will enable project creators to identify potential opportunities and strengthen their offerings to cater to a broader audience.

All the new projects incubated and advised by Instaraise will be designed to meet the fundraising and compliance requirements.

The team will help them with the token specifications, design tokenomics and structure the token sale program to make it easier to access the much-needed capital to put their plans into action.

2. On Demand 360-degree Marketing Assistance

Marketing is crucial for fundraising and gaining adoption. By using efficient marketing strategies, projects will be able to reach out to a broader audience and build a strong community of followers.

Instaraise offers dedicated, on-demand 360-degree marketing support for all verified projects that sign up on the platform.

As part of the program, Instaraise will help these projects leverage its existing internal and external networks and connect with the loyal Instaraise community and a much wider global audience interested in the DeFi space.

The Instaraise marketing team will be working closely with all the supported projects to develop a sound marketing strategy to help them communicate with the masses and gain their unwavering support.

3. Private Fundraising Support

As one of the pioneering decentralized fundraising and incubation protocols in the DeFi ecosystem, Instaraise has garnered a strong community following.

The Instaraise community includes crypto enthusiasts, retail and institutional crypto investors and industry insiders.

Based on their $INSTA holdings, the community members will be awarded exclusive early access to projects approved for listing on Instaraise.

Thanks to these members, projects on Instaraise can expect to raise funds early on through private fundraising rounds to support their development even before the public sale goes live.

4. Public Fundraising

The public fundraising tools offered by Instaraise are available to everyone.

While anyone can create their own fundraising campaign using the platform’s completely decentralized and transparent presale infrastructure, only verified projects listed on Instaraise will receive additional benefits and incentives offered by the Instaraise ecosystem.

The public fundraising mechanism created by Instaraise enables projects to achieve maximum reach while providing potential investors with a secure way to support promising DeFi projects duly vetted by the Instaraise team.

Furthermore, the Instaraise public fundraising protocol incorporates features that mitigate risks like rug pulls prevalent in the industry to ensure the interests of all the stakeholders are protected.

Risk Mitigation on Instaraise IDO Platform

Enabling DeFi projects to raise funds through Initial DEX Offerings, the Instaraise IDO platform is one of few to implement “Fixed Swap Pools.” By doing so, Instaraise ensures that the token price remains constant through the sale.

In addition, the use of the Tezos protocol keeps the fundraising costs low for both projects and investors.

Instaraise uses Pool Weight Score-based allotment to decide token allocation based on the user’s $INSTA holdings, thereby ensuring that everyone gets a fair chance to participate in the token sale.

Risk mitigation features on the Instaraise IDO platform include auto liquidity locking and vesting scheduling mechanisms. The auto liquidity locking feature gets activated once the presale token pool contract is initiated.

It sends liquidity tokens to a locked contract for the entire sale duration to prevent rug pulls. Subsequently, once the sale concludes, the locked liquidity tokens are added to QuipuSwap, locked for any desired duration by its owners.

The platform also helps project owners set a vesting schedule for token holders, preventing them from dumping the tokens soon after the sale.

5. Staking and Farming

Instaraise has partnered with some of the leading DeFi platforms to provide staking and farming solutions to supported projects.

These partnerships will help projects keep their communities engaged while keeping tabs on their token liquidity and market capitalization. More details and partnership announcements will be coming soon.

6. Support for IEO on CEXs

Apart from assisting the projects to list their tokens on DEXs like QuipuSwap, Instaraise will also provide the necessary support to feature them on some of the leading Centralised Exchanges like MEXC .

Furthermore, Instaraise is actively forging partnerships with many exchanges, assisting verified projects that get listed on the platform to list their tokens on the partner crypto exchange and trading platforms.

7. DIY IDO Using Instaraise Platform

Projects that are not part of the Instaraise Incubation and Fundraising platform can still use its IDO infrastructure to launch their own token presales.

The automated launch feature on the Instaraise IDO platform helps project owners create token presale campaigns by entering specifications relevant to their respective projects into the factory contract.

While such projects enjoy the minimum burden of KYC and due diligence, they miss out on end-to-end support, which is exclusive to listed projects.
