Tiers are probably the most discussed argument in Launchpads
We see projects trying to solve Tiers dilemma by adding more and more variables to Tiers levels, instead of doing this we will address the problem by simplifying things.
We will try to be as clear as possible, avoiding using a lot of math formulas.
So, let’s start with a very simple example.
Project “X” is a famous Launchpad with 4 different tiers:
- Bronze 500 tokens
- Silver 1,500 tokens
- Gold 4,500 tokens
- Platinum 9,000 tokens
If you’re smart you will easily understand that actually there is something wrong with this and other Tier systems in general, for example:
I own 10,000 tokens and I’m qualified for Platinum:
Why should I keep the 1,000 extra tokens in my wallet if there aren’t benefits?
Why should I not sell them on the market?
I own 4,500 tokens and I’m qualified for Gold, I don’t have enough money to double my allocation and qualify for the Platinum tier:
Why there isn’t any incentive to make me buy more tokens?
These are just some of the many questions that come naturally when looking at actual tier systems.
Also, we will not mention not guaranteed allocations, different phases, disproportionate pool weights and such, otherwise, we would have to write a separate article just to talk about these things that favor someone to the detriment of others.
From all this, comes our idea of a fair and proportional Tiers-free guaranteed allocation.
How it’s possible to achieve all these things together?
