ApeSwap provides fundraising capabilities to crypto projects through Treasury Bills and Initial Ape Offerings (IAOs).

Treasury Bills

Treasury Bills offer users who provide liquidity to the ApeSwap DEX the opportunity to acquire BANANA at a potentially discounted rate in exchange for their LP tokens. In turn, Treasury Bill buyers also get a one-of-a-kind NFT, which can be held or transferred to other users.

How Offerings Work

We offer two types of IAOs: Official IAOs, and Self-Serve IAOs. Offerings are a way for crypto projects to raise capital by crowdsourcing capital commitments from ApeSwap users.
Depending on the type of IAO, projects can set a target raise amount of BNB, and submit to ApeSwap for review. The protocol will either officially sponsor the capital raise as an Official IAO, or the project is free to create its own, unofficial capital raise through a Self-Serve IAO.
Participants in IAOs receive tokens from the project in exchange for the commitment of their BNB or GNANA tokens. By committing capital to an IAO, users are effectively buying the project tokens with your BNB (or GNANA). These partner tokens vest linearly over a certain period of time determined by the project.

Official IAOs

ApeSwap carefully selects a limited number of qualified projects among those that apply to sponsor as Official IAO partners. These partners receive ApeSwap marketing support and access to the BNB raised to kickstart their growth on BNB Chain.

Self-Serve IAOs

Projects can still use our unique Self-Serve IAO platform to fundraise towards launch. This service allows any crypto project to set up their own fundraising campaign on BNB Chain and bootstrap liquidity utilizing the ApeSwap DEX.
NOTE: Self-Serve IAOs are NOT officially endorsed by ApeSwap. They do not go through the same thorough vetting process as Official IAOs. Users are always encouraged to do their own research and understand their risk before buying into an IAO.
