The Daox Protocol

A new standard for all kinds of token sales that allows investors and startups interact via decentralized autonomous organizations. This is the ICO 2.0.

02
How it Works

ICOs and crowdfunding campaigns are easily launched using the Daox Protocol.

Each campaign then forms an Ethereum-based decentralized autonomous organization featuring its own ERC20 token.

Each DAO holds the raised funds and is managed by the transparent voting of its token holders.

03
Key features of the Daox Protocol
Stopping scams

The raised funds are stored in a separate DAO and could only be partially withdrawn based on proposals submitted by the startup team. These proposals are being approved or declined by the token holders. Thereby, the team is highly motivated, while scam token sales are eliminated.

Decentralized decision making

Each investor or startup team can initiate decentralized and transparent voting among the token holders. This helps in making key decisions and ensure that these decisions are supported by the community of token holders.

Guaranteed refund

The refund mode is the core functionality of the protocol. Startup token holders can vote for the return of remaining funds if they are unsatisfied with the way the project unfolds, or if the project turns out to be a scam.

New nature of tokens

Each token of every DAO created using the Daox Protocol is representing a part of the raised funds in the sense that it could be used to get the remaining funds back in case of a startup failure. This gives a support for the value of the token on its early-stages of development.

And many more

The governance structure and functionality of each DAO might be adjusted to the specific needs of a project. For example, authors could start a simple DAICO issuing utility tokens, or create an organization that will pay dividends, or offer equity-based tokens. Modules are developed by the third-party developers and are connected to DAOs via the DXC Token.

04
Use cases of the Daox Protocol
05
Why the Daox Protocol will Revolutionize Investing?

The Daox Protocol is a unified standard and a framework for deploying decentralized autonomous organizations aimed at conducting fair token sales (Fundraising DAOs). These DAOs play the role of advanced intermediaries between startups and their investors, combining the best practices of venture capital, ICOs, and crowdfunding.

Here is a comparison of Fundraising DAOs vs other forms of investing.

06
Why Switch to ICOs 2.0?
Old style ICOICO 2.0
Tokens are backed by raised funds
Token holders can get a refund
Anti-scam ICO structure
Project progress must be transparent

Smart contracts are checked by the community
07
Daox Network

The whole process of building Fundraising DAOs and interacting with them could be done in a user-friendly application called Daox Platform. Startups can build their DAOs, with their own ERC20 tokens and start ICOs 2.0 in a matter of minutes.

08
Daox is Solving Major Token Sale Problems
Scams

The easiness of launching an ICO and high level of anonymity in crypto is making a lot of space for scams.

Token holders of the project can vote for the return of the remaining funds if the project turns out to be a scam.

Low motivated founders

When the startup team receives the total amount of funding at once, their motivation decreases dramatically.

The startup team is highly motivated to succeed to keep getting financing for their project.

Value of tokens

Tokens of early-stage startups are not backed by any assets other than the team’s obligations.

Tokens are backed by the raised funds that reside in a DAO, as token holders can get a refund.

Misuse of funds

Investors can’t see the purposes of expenditures. This opens a lot of space for misuse of funds.

The startup team has to submit proposals indicating the purposes of withdrawal.

Frequent failures

Experts expect that 97% of all ICO startups will fail within the next few years. In 2018, only 1 out of 5 projects makes it to exchanges.

Due to many improvements in the way token sales are conducted, it is expected that the success ratio will be at least 4x higher.

Lack of transparency

Because of the lack of a unified standard for token sales, investors cannot verify how tokens are distributed.

With a unified standard token sale contributors can easily see how many tokens are distributed in exchange for crypto and what discounts are given.

Highly competitive environment

There are thousands of ICOs and founders has to have big marketing budget to stand out.

Since the risks for investors are lower, it is easier to attract sufficient attention even without marketing spendings.

Complexity of technology

Each startup has to either resort to expensive third-party token sale solutions, or spend time and resources to make their own.

Daox Protocol is an open source and zero commission framework that doesn’t even require any special knowledge to run an ICO.

Hacker attacks

Every noticeable token sale attracts a lot of attention of hackers looking to steal the raised crypto.

All the raised funds reside in a DAO that is being managed by the transparent voting of token holders.

Inefficient ICO marketing

Each startup has to resort to hundreds of different services, not being able to assess the effectiveness of each of them.

Each startup becomes part of the ecosystem which allows access to solutions and services using the DXC token.

Excessive time input

Instead of working on the product, the whole startup team spends about 6 months to conduct a token sale.

With the ready-made solution and the whole ecosystem of services and tools, token sales are made easy.

09
Daox Architecture
Fundraising DAOs

Independent fundraising organizations that reside on the Ethereum blockchain, created using the Daox Factory.

Daox Factory

A modular Solidity framework on the Ethereum blockchain that enables Fundraising DAOs to be easily deployed.

Daox Platform

A user-friendly interface for the interaction with Fundraising DAOs and Daox Ecosystem.

Daox Open API

A protocol that enables third-party services to be integrated with the Daox Ecosystem and DXC Token.

DXC Token

An ERC20 Token that enables functionality and deployment of Fundraising DAOs.

Services and Tools

Third-party services and tools that are integrated via Daox Open API.

DXC is the Token for ICOs 2.0

DXC is the native token of the Daox Protocol, Ecosystem, and Network. It is an ERC20 utility token that is aimed at fueling the economy of the new, fair, and open blockchain based investing.

Main Uses of DXC
04

Functional Part of the Fundraising DAO Protocol

Each Fundraising DAO could only be deployed by using DXCs that will form the initial account. This account is used to set variables and to connect functional modules or services that are introduced by third-party developers. This is how the growing community of developers is incentivised to contribute code to the Fundraising DAO protocol in a completely decentralized way.

03

Daox Marketplace for ICOs and Investors

There is a marketplace of services and tools that are integrated via the Daox Open API and DXC token. Imagine hundreds of services for startups and investors that are easily accessible in a few clicks and also transparently rated by the community. For instance, a project can apply for rating report, or media publishing, or bounty campaign, or start banner advertising, right from the Daox Platform interface. An example of such service is bounty.daox.org

02

Daox Platform and Wallet App

The DXC token is used to get access to the services provided on the Daox Platform. Although the Daox Platform does not charge any commission from the startups or investors, it offers different promotional services, such as, featuring projects, targeted ads, email lists, dedicated support, etc. Besides that, the DXC token is the main token of the Daox Wallet app that is aimed at taking “cryptofunding” mainstream.

01

Early Participation in ICOs 2.0

The DXC token is the only token that is used to participate in the Initial Tokensale Stage of Fundraising DAOs. The funds raised during this stage are held on a separate account and are accessible for the project team instantly and without withdrawal requests. However, these funds could only be transferred to the integrated service providers that are integrated via Daox Open API. Thus, the majority of Fundraising DAOs will run DXC-presale stage to fund their ICO campaigns. Consequently, DXC token holders will get the priority access to the ICOs based on the Fundraising DAO protocol.

11
DXC is like a gas to run cryptofunding campaigns

Average ICO or crowdfunding project is spending 10% of its fundraising target for marketing and other services. Since the funds in a DAO are locked, the DXC is used to get access to such services for Fundraising DAOs.

The capital raised via ICOs and crowdfunding is expected to hit $110 billion in 2019.

12
Why the DXC Token is Different
  1. It’s an ICO 2.0 token so its value is backed by the raised funds which remain at the discretion of the token holders.
  2. DXC token holders can vote for the refund if they are unsatisfied with the results of Daox.
  3. It’s the first token with a fully transparent distribution and discounts. You won’t be at a disadvantage because someone secretly got a “whale bonus”.
  4. DXC is a functional part of the community-driven protocol which is decentralized, therefore it will live independently of Daox.
  5. And it indeed has a strong economy (not “the payment for platform services”)!

Frequently Asked Questions
What projects can raise funds using Fundraising DAO protocol?

There are no limitations on using the Fundraising DAO protocol or the Daox Platform.

How do I know the funds are safe in a Fundraising DAO?

First of all, each genuine Fundraising DAO is completely independent and resides on the Ethereum blockchain. Secondly, neither the team of Daox developers nor any third parties have access to the collected funds that are stored in DAOs. Thirdly, the source code of Fundraising DAO is open and supported by the community.

Why do you need blockchain in your project?

The concept of a decentralized autonomous organization, which we believe is the most efficient and fair way for open blockchain based investing, is only applicable using blockchain technology. Blockchain is also needed to allow the use of cryptocurrencies. There is also a detailed explanation of how we use blockchain and why do we need it in our white paper (c. 2.1).

Why do you need your own DXC token? Why can’t you use Ether instead?

DXC is fueling the economy around Fundraising DAO protocol and in the Daox Ecosystem. The token is needed to allow for the establishment of DAOs, and interactions in the ecosystem as it provides necessary functionality that can’t be implemented using Ether (e.g. funds commitment).

When will the DXC token be listed on exchanges?

The DXC token is ERC20 compatible, therefore it could be listed on many exchanges. The actual dates of such events will be announced across all our social networks.

What will happen with the unsold DXC tokens?

All the unsold DXC tokens will be burnt.

Is it possible to return the funds if Daox fails?

The main sale stage of the DXC tokensale will be conductied in accordance with the same principles that are proposed by Daox. Therefore, every token holder will be able submit a proposal for activating the refund mode. If this proposal will be approved by 90% of the sold tokens or no withdrawals will be approved in a course of 3 months, the Fundraising DAO of Daox will switch to the refund mode, and token holders will get back the remaining funds.

Where is your company based?

Our company is being incorporated in Dubai. But we also have offices in Spain and Russia.

Limited Pre-ICO

DXC is a utility token that enables all the interactions in the Daox ecosystem and on the Daox Platform.
