Below are some main points of this AMA.
PART I: INTRODUCTION OF DAO MAKER
Question 1: First, can you give us a brief introduction about your team and DAO Maker. What are some outstanding features that make DAO ahead of other competitors?
Ms. Natalie: Founded in 2018, DAO Maker was created by a team of experts in trading, fundraising, token economy modelling, and technical development. During the 2017 crypto hype and the following crypto winner in 2018, blockchain faced numerous challenges and difficulties for mainstream adoption.
Firstly, most crypto projects lack of expertises in economics and mathematics, creating many token economy models that will never work.
Secondly, many crypto projects were hungry for public attention, looking for the fastest way to grow its community and ignoring the quality and value that community can provide. This led to the heavy use of airdrops and bounty campaigns by crypto projects, making their token worthless.
Thirdly, many crypto projects were using the ICO model for fundraising. It is certainly more accessible to much more people than traditional fundraising. However, the ICO funding method is not favorable to most investors that it is not secure. Many crypto projects feel no responsibility to their token holders, doing pumping dumping schemes, or simply spent the fund irresponsibly.
To undertake the 3 challenges I mentioned, DAO Maker created a set of services and products, they are token economy consultancy, Social Mining SaaS, and DYCO & SHO.

Question 2: Next, I would like to know some great achievements of DAO Maker during its development process.
Mr. Malte Christensen: DAO Maker’s native token DAO had its world premiere listing last Tuesday on KuCoin and Gate.io simultaneously. We have received massive support from the community and other blockchain projects. This is one of the Top milestones we had so far. Right now DAO Token is trading at 30x from public sale price.
This success will not be possible without the support from the crypto community. We are also a think tank, creating innovations and ways to better the industry, allowing community sales and incubation at a very high level
Question 3: Last but not least, please share with me the goals of DAO Maker in the near future. Do you have any plan to achieve mass adoption in the DeFi space?
Ms. Natalie: In 2021 Q1, we are going to launch Venture Bond alpha, acquiring a fiat license for the DAO Maker platform. In addition, we will be working on the legal side of complaint equity crowdfunding.
In 2021 Q2, our new crowdfunding platform will be live, featuring Compliance as a Service for token sales. Other developments include the release of dTeam Express, 2nd generation of Social Mining.
In 2021 Q3, Venture Bond Beta will be released. We will also release DYCO margin lending pool and adding fiat on ramp to DAO Maker Platform.
In 2021 Q4, dTeams for for equity-funded firms.
In 2022, VB exchange will be launched, allowing our users to trade venture bonds. In addition to this, we will also launch our equity offering platform.
PART 2: BEST QUESTIONS FROM TWITTER
Question 1: Can you tell us the motivation and benefits for investors to hold $DAO in long term? What plans do you have to help drive demand and scarcity for the token? @Prettyboy071
Mr. Malte Christensen: Ok this is a very good question, it all comes down to determining the token holder’s behaviour. Making sure the weight is placed on people who are in for the long run, benefitting the token’s ecosystem. In a DYCO v2 which is, after Orion Protocol, our 2nd version of the DYCO, the deployer contract that distributes tokens to buyers acts as a Toll Bridge. DYCO participants can claim their entire purchased allocation on day 1, day 100, or any other day of their choice. Essentially, they can remain committed to a long-term token release or they can cut things short, but at a toll.
The Toll Bridge requires primary buyers who want an instant release to burn a portion of their allocation. This burn reduces each day, and it becomes 0% once the final token distribution is complete. The advantage of this system is that primary buyers who are only interested in a flip and those who have a lower average exit price can pay the burn and exit their positions early. Investor prefer flippers to be exiting as fast as possible.
This reduces extreme price volatility as surges in secondary market demand are fulfilled with primary buyers who want to capitalize on their purchase as fast as possible. Meanwhile, the holders can remain committed to the long-term release schedule.
The advantage of this is that any market price can never be extremely distorted from the target exit price of primary buyers. Typically, if the price exceeds the target price of flippers or those who have a low exit value, they have to wait for future distributions. This limits a token’s secondary market’s action to also wait out future releases, reducing secondary market confidence.
With a Toll Bridge, there’s strong certainty that any market price is not going to be too distorted from future releases as primary buyers don’t need to wait for a release to sell; they can sell at will if the price is already attractive for their individualized goals.
Question 2: Could you please name a few investors as well as evelopment partners of DAO Maker, and what value they bring to the ecosystem? @Tran2886171477
Ms. Natalie: Our long term partners Rockaway and LD capital as well as other established VCs in the industry such as Woodstock.
Please find an overview in the top left corner of our investors in the picture.
Question 3: Regulation is very important. Many projects were closed in many countries due to failure to use the correct regulations and permits. In order to go global how does DAO team deal with these issues? @john_labby
Mr. Malte Christensen: Our company is established in Estonia, owning all the necessary licenses to work in the cryptocurrency industry. We also work with several different compliance agencies to keep up with the current situation in the market and prioritize solving all the issues connected with legislative changes worldwide. However on an internal SaaS level we gained a favorable Chinese legal opinion allowing us to distribute token to Chinese holders over for example NEM HUB, which is the Social Mining label chosen by NEM. Also the adoption of GDPR by Japan as first country outside Europe makes it easier for us to coordinate and streamline the digital onboarding of users.
Question 4: DaoMaker has been rocking since before the defi craze started with novel concepts such as the DYCO and SHO. Can you tell us positive results of the concept of SHO AND DYCO? @komando911
Ms. Natalie: SHO’s are benefitting the members of the community most often left out, we distribute token to people who are strong holders in the DAO ecosystem, as well as people continuing to bring value to the respective project over Social Mining eg.
Once you go onto our page, you can click on fundraising and see our models result: https://daomaker.com/
DYCOs allow users to participate in an insured token sale within a secured environment. We want to make sure the old ICO/IEO fundraising scheme dies and gets replaced by a version benefitting the users rather than big VCs or companies.
CF: We got it now. What about SHO @MBC_Christensen @NatalieDaoMakerNEM ?
Ms. Natalie: We have weekly announcement of SHO at the moment, we will release VAIOT which is a project in collaboration with IBM and yesterday we have announcend XEND.finance, you can check us out on our community t.me/Daomaker
Question 5: What are the compliance and fundraising solutions and strategic consulting that DaoMaker has created? What are their most renowned protocols and models that have kept them at the forefront of the crypto world leaders?@kinymuem.
Mr. Malte Christensen: We were the main launchpad for LTO Network, Elrond Network, Harmony Protocol, AVA Labs, 2key Network, Injective Protocol, Orion Protocol, NEM’s Symbol, DEFI unicorn OpenPredict and several others.
We spot a flawless track record, as DAO Maker’s client portfolio average ROI is + 3,000%, ATH, ROI is at + 5,300%. DAO Maker’s core community extends 200k users, not counting several Social Mining communities.
Here are a few examples:
1) NEM HUB
2) OpenPredict SM
4) 2key Network
5) Elrond Network
As Natalie mentioned, we are launching a fiat-enabled compliant platform for venture funding, both crowd equity and tokens. It involves tiered levels of risk to cater to the varying levels of risk appetite that retail has. The platform will include:
– Venture Bond for near-zero risk, but with reduced rewards
– Dynamic Equity/Coin Offerings for capped risk while maintaining most of the reward
– Refundable Strong Holder Offerings for public sales of tokens that have successfully closed a private round
– Standard Offerings for equity/token issuance without any protection, for retail with maximum risk appetite.
