What are IDOS?

An IDO or InitialDex Offering is a new typeof decentralised and permissionless crowdfunding. Insteadof fundraising on a traditional cryptocurrency exchange, IDOs launch on adecentralised exchange. They offer instant and fair trading forinvestors and immediate liquidity for the project developers.

Fundraising is an essentialpart of the early development of a crypto project. It enables projects to paytheir workers and afford new technologies and partnerships. They’re seen as thenext step in cryptocurrency fundraising that will offer financial freedom forboth project creators and investors.

What are the benefits of Initial Dex Offerings?
If a project launchesan IDO, it means it is launching a token or coin through a decentralisedliquidity exchange. This type of exchange consists of liquidity pools wheretraders can swap tokens, like coins and stablecoins. 

IDOs offer better andimmediate liquidity compared to ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings), making them agood choice for startups and new projects that require immediate access tofunds. 

IDOs are attempting to solvethe issues and weaknesses of ICOs that include third-party discrimination, lackof privacy, and vulnerability to human error and theft. 

By crowdfunding with IDOs,projects can bypass third parties, and eliminate issues related to human errorand hacking. Buyers and holders’ tokens are also instantly secured on theirwallet. 

With IDOs, projects also paylower fees compared to ICOs, and they don’t require permission as they’recompletely decentralised. 

Are IDOs the future?

Unfortunately, the lack of centralisationsignificantly increases the risk of rug pull scams, making them riskier forinvestors. It also needs to be considered that centralised exchanges likeBinance and Coinbase, still control the market. This will likely change asawareness of IDOs and decentralised exchanges grows.

While it’s clear thatimprovements are still needed, IDOs are opening up a new way of fundraising inthe crypto world.
