AlgoLaunch receives Foundation grant award to develop IDO platform on Algorand


Algorand Foundation

March 17th, 2022 -  The Algorand Foundation announced today that it has awarded an IDO launchpad SupaGrant to AlgoLaunch, to develop and build a brand new launchpad on Algorand. The AlgoLaunch IDO launchpad will serve to attract solid projects with enormous potential to the Algorand network and grow the ecosystem.

AlgoLaunch aims to solve problems with regards to the dissatisfying user experience on previous IDO platforms. One of the problems we target to solve is the token claiming method. On most IDO projects on Ethereum, the inevitable high gas fees led to platforms airdropping the tokens people bought instead of letting them claim their tokens from the pool. However, Algorand was designed by the MIT cryptography expert Silvio Micali, and is able to scale the network for billions of users without sacrificing speed or raising transaction costs. Therefore, on Algorand, users don’t have to worry about high transaction costs anymore and there’s no significant reason for Algolaunch to drop the tokens individually and cause delays after the TGE.

“Launchpads like AlgoLaunch help projects bootstrap the building of their applications. AlgoLaunch helps developers get the word out and ensures that the community is well protected via internal due diligence processes. We are delighted to support AlgoLaunch, the first IDO launchpad on Algorand. The team's experience, vision and ability to execute was paramount in our decision to make AlgoLaunch a grant recipient. AlgoLaunch aligns with our core mission to grow ecosystem TVL, while rewarding the community with participation in early stage Algorand project’s in a more controlled and safe environment”.  - Daniel Oon, Head of Defi, Algorand Foundation

“We are delighted to build a whole new launchpad on the Algorand chain. As we mentioned in our docs and papers, AlgoLaunch’s main goal is to enrich the ecosystem and help new projects and people adapt to Algorand. The Algorand Foundation has clearly shown that they are eager to join and help. We believe that Algorand will play a major role in the forthcoming blockchain trilemma as an alternative solution to other chains and we want to be there when that happens”. - Johnny, Team Leader of AlgoLaunch

About Algorand Foundation

The Algorand blockchain — designed by the MIT professor and Turing Award winning cryptographer Silvio Micali — is uniquely capable of delivering on the promise of a borderless global economy. It achieves transaction throughputs at the speed of traditional finance, but with immediate finality, near zero transaction costs, and on a 24/7 basis. Its carbon-neutral platform and unique pure proof-of-stake consensus mechanism solves for the “blockchain trilemma” by achieving both security and scalability on a decentralized protocol, and without a second of downtime since it went live in 2019.

The Algorand Foundation is dedicated to helping fulfill the global promise of the Algorand blockchain by taking responsibility for its sound monetary supply economics, decentralized governance, and healthy and prosperous open-source ecosystem. For more information, visit
