Welcome to the Future of Investing

Daox has developed a community-driven blockchain-based protocol aimed at becoming the gold standard for all types of token sales. This is the ICO 2.0.

A Decentralized Autonomous Fundraising Organization or Fundraising DAO Protocol
02
How it Works

ICOs and crowdfunding campaigns are easily launched using the Daox Platform or any Ethereum client.

Each campaign then forms an Ethereum-based Fundraising DAO featuring its own ERC20 token.

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

03
Examples of Fundraising DAOs
04
Why Fundraising DAOs will Revolutionize Investing?

Fundraising DAOs play the role of advanced intermediaries between startups and their investors. They combine the best practices of venture capital, ICOs, and crowdfunding in a unified Ethereum-based protocol.

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

05
Meet the Ecosystem for Fundraising DAOs

Each Fundraising DAO becomes a part of the open Daox Ecosystem that consists of investors, startups, and third-party services that could be easily integrated via the Daox Open API.

06
Daox Platform

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.

07
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
Startup team is highly motivated
Smart contracts are checked by the community
08
Solving Major Problems of ICOs and Crowdfunding

These are some of the problems that are solved by Fundraising DAO protocol and Daox Project. The community and team will drive further development, making Daox based entities the smartest fundraising tool ever.

Complexity of tech

Crowdfunding with cryptocurrencies requires special software or engagement of engineers.

SCAMs

The number of projects that turn out to be scam is increasing in the ICO sphere.

Expensive Legal Support

For small-scale crowdfunding campaigns legal services cost too much.

LACK OF TRANSPARENCY

Project initiators has no incentive to keep their investors updated with their progress.

INEFFICIENT MARKETING

Average entrepreneurs are stuck choosing the right advertising services.

EXCESSIVE TIME INPUT

The process of attracting investments requires a lot of work that does no good for the product itself.

FUNDS MISUSE

Some startups might be spending raised funds on something other than the development of the project.

FEW NON-BLOCKCHAIN STARTUPS

Non-blockchain and non-tech startups very rarely raise funds using the ICO model.

FREQUENT FAILURES

Many crowdfunded startups fail to deliver the product, not providing return of the remaining funds.

DECREASE OF MOTIVATION

When the startup team receive all the funds at once their motivation could drop dramatically.

FRAUDULENT ACTIVITIES

The lack of transparency opens up many ways of conducting fraudulent activity.

AND MANY OTHER

Services and tools being integrated in the Daox ecosystem are solving more issues and raising efficiency.

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.

Each DAO is Modular

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 even offer equity-based tokens. Modules are developed by third-party developers and are connected to DAOs via the DXC Token.

DXC is the Token for ICOs 2.0

DXC is the native token of the Fundraising DAO Protocol, Daox Ecosystem and Platform. 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.
