How To Create A Self-Serve IAO
Follow the steps below to create a Self-Serve IAO:
1) Prepare your project before your SS-IAO by following our best practices to ensure that your raise is successful:

Medium
2) Connect your wallet to ApeSwap (for instructions, visit the How to Connect Your Wallet page).
3) Hover over Raise in the nav bar, and then click Official IAO to visit our Official IAO page.
4) Click Create to begin building your SS-IAO. Once you open the Create page, you will be guided through how to set up your SS-IAO.
NOTE: There are a number of things you must have in place before actually deploying your SS-IAO. Please read all of the steps in this guide carefully to make sure you are prepared before you deploy.
5) Paste the token contract for the token you will be offering in the first box, and select what token you would like to use to raise funds.
5) Input the following information:
  • How many tokens you plan to sell in the offering. This does not include tokens for liquidity, so you need to also take into account how much initial liquidity you want and how many tokens will be allocated towards liquidity.
  • The offering price. This will then auto-populate the hard cap box by multiplying the tokens you plan to sell by the offering price.
  • The fund limit amount that any one wallet can commit. A user will not be able to commit more than this amount.
  • Soft cap on the raise. This amount must be committed for the raise to be completed.
  • Finally, in the bottom checkbox, decide if you want to burn remaining tokens or have them sent back to your wallet in the event that the soft cap is met, but the hard cap is not.
6) Decide on when you want to start your raise and the amount of time that you would like the raise to be open.
NOTE: Once your SS-IAO is deployed and confirmed, the earliest it can go live is 10 days from the confirmation. The main reason for this is to allow RugDoc ample time to review and screen your token, and to give all users ample time to DYOR.
For example, if your SS-IAO is confirmed for deployment on January 1st, the earliest you could actually start your raise would be 10 days later, on January 11th.
7) Select the amount of funds raised you would like to lock and add as initial liquidity upon completion of the raise. This includes selecting:
  • Percentage of funds raised to be used for liquidity. For example, if you set a hard cap of 100 BNB, and you decide to select 50% as your post-raise liquidity, 50 BNB will be paired with unsold tokens and locked as initial liquidity on ApeSwap.
  • The listing price. For reference, ApeSwapโ€™s IAOs always list at offering price, but you are free to list above or below offering price.
  • How long you will lock liquidity for. Liquidity must be locked for a minimum of 6 months. Locking liquidity for at least 12 months is considered best practice.
8) From here, you will get a breakdown of your tokenomics and the funds you are raising. Confirm that this information makes sense and is in line with what you expect. Remember, you will be providing tokens for the sale, and all of those tokens will be sold. Then, you will provide additional tokens to be paired with raised funds to serve as initial liquidity.
NOTE: Once you deploy the SS-IAO, there is nothing ApeSwap can do to unwind it. This is a self-serve, decentralized platform based on automated smart contracts. Deploy at your own risk.
SS-IAOs cost 10 BNB to set up. Please ensure that all information is correct before deploying, ApeSwap will not be able to refund deployed SS-IAOs. If you elect to use this platform, you are indicating that you fully understand the risks and requirements.
9) Add all the pertinent information about your project. Provide links to your website, docs, Twitter, Telegram, Medium and a pitch on your project.
10) Approve the address, and then confirm your SS-IAO.

SS-IAOs & Listings

Any token that launches via SS-IAO will be prioritized for listing on ApeSwap. All ApeSwap listings must pass our standard due diligence. Projects can contact our Business Development team after an SS-IAO launch by filling out the Partner Due Diligence form, but listings happen post-launch, and ApeSwap does not promote unlisted projects.
NOTE: Since projects launched via SS-IAO are NOT officially endorsed by ApeSwap, we will not provide marketing support leading up to the launch via SS-IAO.
However, projects that launch on ApeSwap via SS-IAO and pass our due diligence to get listed are more likely to be supported by the Business Development team for a listing or further partnership.
