Token and the Platform

Rocketpad is a Cardano-based community IDO where different businesses and startups can raise funding to run their activities. The Rocketpad community aims to empower high-growth projects to enable them to offer improved services to their customers across the world.

$Rocket, the project’s utility token, has a lot of use cases, including for the payment of goods and services on the Rocketpad ecosystem, to participate in the governance structure of the project, as well as for staking to earn passive income, among others.

$Rocket holders will be able to vote on the most promising startups looking for funding to scale their operations through their dashboards. These startups are those that would qualify for IDO on the Rocketpad launchpad. What’s more? Rocketpad has a 5-dimensional tier system, where each tier receives token allocation.

Tier Levels and Allocations

Participants are required to stake their tokens corresponding to their respective tier levels once a project has been approved. The minimum requirements are given as follows:

  • KNIGHT: 500 – 5,000
  • BISHOP: 5,000 – 50,000
  • ROOK: 50,000 – 250,000
  • QUEEN: 250,000 – 1,250,000
  • KING: 1,250,000 – 6,250,000

The King tier is the highest while the Knight tier is the lowest. The allocation process begins once staking requirements are met depending on the total pool share. Let’s further simplify how the tier system works; suppose a project sells 10 million tokens in an IDO where 30 ROOK and 20 BISHOP tier members participate, according to the pool weighs, the total pool shares are (30 x 3) + (20 x 2) = 90 + 40 = 130 shares. Therefore, to get the total supply, we divide 10,000,00 by 130 to get 76,923 tokens. This means, ROOK tier members can purchase 3x this amount of token, while BISHOP members can purchase 2x the same amount of tokens.

The bottom line? The higher your tier, the higher your ability to contribute more money to any project that’s approved on the IDO launchpad.
