The crypto market is getting back into business, after being down for more than a year after the last bear market.


This means that alongside all-time crypto highs and ridiculously-priced NFTs, new ways of making an income from the market will start to return.

In this article, we will be going over what is known as IDOs, or Initial DEX Offerings.

We will be explaining what IDOs are, everything you should know about them, and some of the most common rookie mistakes to avoid when hunting, participating and taking profit from them.

Without further ado, here's what we have.

What is an IDO?

It is easy to confuse IDOs with other kinds of initial coin offerings.

For example, just like IDOs, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) and IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings), are traditional ways by which companies find ways to raise money, by selling their newly launched tokens to the public before official launch.

However, the major difference to keep in mind is that while ICOS and IEOs concern other kinds of companies, Initial Dex Offerings are exclusive to Decentralized Exchanges, or DEXs.

Moreover, ICOs and IEOs have several disadvantages including:

  1. Being vulnerable to hacks, scams and regulatory crackdowns (like the three-year battle between Ripple and the SEC)
  2. They are often limited by the CEXs that offer them, meaning that people who receive them have to deal with things like an inability to sell, low liquidity and high fees.
  3. They are more easy to manipulate, inflation by hype, and artificial scarcity. Not to mention pumps and dumps

Initial Dex Offerings take the upper hand over ICOs and IDOs though, because due to the decentralized and trustless nature of the sales:

  1. They are far more secure, fair and open transparent, and fair.
  2. No central authority controls these token sales 
  3. They are far more efficient and accessible
  4. They can also be launched, advertised and claimed more easily.
  5. All of this is without mentioning how safe they are from regulatory crackdowns

How To Safely Hunt For Initial Dex Offerings

IDOs as we mentioned earlier, are lucrative and relatively safer.

Moreover, they can also potentially rally significantly after the official launch. However, we're talking about the crypto market here. This means that the idea of "zero risk' simply doesn't exist.

Initial Dex Offerings can be very risky if care isn't taken. They can be subject to strong volatility, competition and overall uncertainty.

This means that it is important to do your own research when hunting for, assessing and participating in Initial Dex Offerings.

Here are some tips to consider:

  • Keep up with the latest developments and trends. If you want to find good and profitable Initial Dex Offerings, it's a good idea to monitor social media and crypto news sources like Medium, Telegram, Reddit, and Twitter.
  • Examine the group and the project. You should always conduct your due diligence and study of the project and the people behind it before investing in any Initial Dex Offering. 
  • Understand the roadmap and the tokenomics. What is the function and purpose of the token inside the project, and how does it operate? 
  • Understand the collaborators and the team. What are the backgrounds and qualifications of the individuals driving this project? 
  • Evaluate the benefits and risks involved. You should analyze the benefits and drawbacks of investing in the IDO and determine whether it is worthwhile after conducting your study. 
  • What is the general opinion concerning the project and the Initial Dex Offering, and how does it affect the anticipation and hype around it?
  • The allotment and the competition. What impact does the IDO's popularity and oversubscription have on your chances of getting in? 

Where Can You Find An Initial Dex Offerings?

To find IDOs, you can simply follow these sources

  1. DEX Platforms

Decentralized exchanges like Uniswap, SushiSwap, PancakeSwap, and others are popular places for hunting IDOs. Check out the launchpad sections or specific Initial Dex Offering sites for these platforms.

  1. Social Media and Crypto Sites

You can find some IDOs by visiting Twitter and Reddit (e.g., r/Cryptocurrency). These sites are teeming with crypto discussions and can turn up one or two leads

  1. IDO Calendar Websites

There are a few websites and platforms, dedicated to providing a schedule of forthcoming token sales and IDOs. Some of them include Crypto Rank, Coin Gecko, CoinMarketCap, and more.

  1. Token Communities

You can also check out token communities on Twitter, Discord and even Telegram for some of the hottest Initial Dex Offerings.

How To Participate In An IDO

So you have found an IDO you're confident about, and you want to jump in.

To participate safely and (hopefully) profit from it, here are a few tips to consider:

  • Prepare your wallet and your funds. Find a wallet that is compatible with the DEX and can communicate with the IDO's smart contract—such as MetaMask or Trust Wallet. 
  • Additionally, you will need some Stablecoin (USDT, USDC, or DAI), or the DEX's native currency, such as ETH for Uniswap, BNB for PancakeSwap, or MATIC for QuickSwap. 
  • The gas fees and prices might change quickly before you get things done, and you should make sure you have enough to handle this.
  • You can connect to the DEX and the IDO website once you have your wallet and money ready. You might also have to approve a wallet connection to the DEX/IDO. 
  • To be eligible for the IDO, you might also be required to meet certain requirements, like holding a specific quantity of tokens, staking or locking your tokens, or entering a lottery or whitelist. 
  • Make sure you understand the terms and conditions of the IDO and follow its instructions and guidelines.
  • Buy and claim the tokens. You can purchase the tokens at the specified price and quantity when the IDO begins.
  • Some IDOs sell out in minutes, so you might need to move quickly.

In Conclusion

Initial Dex Offerings are a new and interesting alternative to ICOs and IEOs. 

However, before taking part in any Initial Dex Offerings, you should do your own research and only invest what you can afford to lose.

The crypto market can be quite dangerous and speculative, and it is important to watch out for scams, follow rules and avoid greed.
