Gate.io has launched Startup, a platform
that aims to provide users with access to innovative and advanced
projects. Traders now have more opportunities to make an initial
investment. Trading services of the connected token or coin will be
enabled once the Startup project fulfills its fundraising goal.
Gate.io Startup will launch its next project with DAO Maker on January 18, 2021 at 4:00 AM UTC.
DAO Maker creates growth technologies and funding frameworks for
startups, while simultaneously reducing risks for investors. A platform
comprised of B2B and B2B2C products and services, including complaint
fundraising, asset management, pluggable DAO creation, and chain
DAO Maker’s mission is to make venture opportunities more
accessible to retail, not in terms of connectivity but affordability.
DAO Maker is structuring venture opportunities through fundraising
products that cap risk. This approach has proven both demand and success
through the DYCO and SHO models. The company is working on the launch
of the Venture Bond to take risk-capped venture opportunities
mainstream, alongside licensed fiat support and an expansion to the
crowdfunded equity market.

(5) Users can place orders from 4:00 AM UTC to - 6:00 AM UTC. Orders

The distribution calculation rules are as follow:
F (distribution ratio) = DAO supply limit ÷ total DAO purchase orders
P (individual DAO purchase orders) = F × qualified individual orders
M (payment amount in USDG) = P × Startup Sale Price
E.g. The DAO supply limit is 100 million. The purchased DAO orders are 200 million. User X has placed 100,000 DAO orders.
F (distribution ratio) = 100,000,000 ÷ 200,000,000 =0.5
P (individual DAO purchase orders) = 0.5 × 100,000 = 50,000
M (payment amount in USDG) = 50,000 × Startup Price
If the project cannot fulfill its fund-raising goal within the given
time, users will get refunded, and the project will not get listed.

4. The New Gate.io Startup Project Exchange Listing Rules
Once the Startup project fulfills its fundraising goal, Gate.io will
enable the trading service of the project. To decrease any amount of
volatility during the initial trading stage, we will apply the Call
Auction Mechanism. The rules are as follows:
(1) During the
call auction, traders can place orders freely, but the orders will not
be active immediately. The real-time reference trading price will be
presented and calculated based on the Call-order price from the largest
amount of trades created. During this period, the order book and the
candlestick chart will show the related price range and the market
movement based on the real-time reference.
(2) During the first stage of call auction, traders are allowed to place orders and cancel orders freely.
(3) To avoid market manipulation, during the second stage of call
auction, orders can be placed freely by the traders, but order
cancellations are prohibited.
(4) When the call auction is
finished, users will not be able to place or cancel any orders. They
will collect all the data and match the orders. Buy orders with prices
higher than the reference price and sell orders with prices lower than
the reference price will be matched and e xecuted (a portion of the
orders with a higher routed price may not be matched). The remaining
orders will go to the order book of the next trading stage
(5) After the call auction data collection, the s ystem will enable trading activities.
