Traditional launchpad fundamentals completely revamped
Scheduled to be added to the protocol at a later stage, Launchpad will become a core feature and a well established revenue stream for the protocol's Treasury.

Here are some key features:

Firstly, a dynamic strategy will be based on the project itself instead of setting minimum and maximum allocation limits. For example, some systems consist of multi-day auctions with an increasing bid structure per token. This format would constitute a traditional auction setting. There would also be a decreasing bid structure, known as a Dutch Auction, where the price per token ticks downwards until all units are purchased. Launchpads could also use the previous design with set maximum allocations in specific circumstances.
However, there is no minimum value needed; all THO holders could participate in a raise. Alternatively, we could customize additional setups per project based on their set requirements and objectives. Since the inherent Launchpad structure will be dynamic — a summary article will be published in advance explaining how a particular funding round would unfold.
Secondly, instead of locking THO tokens in a 30-day pool — participants would use THO itself to purchase their block of Launchpad project tokens — which would be calculated based on one of the strategies explained above. That allocation would then get added as part of the initial liquidity of the Launchpad project itself. This would benefit not only THO holders by receiving additional units on a well-performing project. However, just as importantly, it will benefit the project by providing more liquidity at the start, which would help prevent catastrophic price moves when people begin to take profit. This setup prioritizes growth and stability for every project launched through Thorus rather than pump and dumps, which have been witnessed with more traditional methods.
Similarly, our stable coin STATIK may also be included during this transaction based on the needs and objectives of the Launchpad project. However, regardless of the scenario, this methodology is set up to help ensure success for all participants.
The fee structure for a Launchpad project has also been revised. Now, 10% of the initial liquidity raised would be deposited into our Treasury and locked for one year. This inherently sets an absolute minimum value for the project, a worst-case scenario reserve, and strengthens the Treasury should the project perform well. After the one year has been completed, the funds will be unlocked. The tokens could then be sold, and the funds reinvested elsewhere. Alternatively, the 10% of initial liquidity could be kept, allowing potential further growth from the project to be reflected in the Treasury balance. This further diversification will provide greater stability overall to the platform and contribute to the continually rising backing price of THO.
More ways of fundraising will be introduced shortly after launch. This will allow more people to join our Launchpad, not limiting attendance with minimum launchpad tiers only.
