IDO staked capital reached $1M within 5 minutes of opening

The launchpad release coincides with the IDIA token launch. IDIA is Impossible’s dedicated token, which users can stake and earn allocations within launches of the token. IDO staked capital reached $1 million soon after opening, eventually climbing to the record $5.3 million. Almost 2,500 users passed KYC and the release was oversubscribed 22 times.

The support offered by Impossible Finance’s new launchpad, which was inspired by Vitalik Buterin’s DAICO design, incorporates hackathons, incubators, an investor network, and other builder networks. There is fair allocation via staking queues, on-chain whitelisting, and KYC protocols.

OpenSwap raises $1M in strategic funding round

Recently, OpenSwap raised $1 million from a strategic funding round, in which Coin98 Ventures, BR Capital, NGC Ventures, Prime Block, and other top-tier VC funds took part.
