What is NearPAD?

NearPAD is an IDO platform built on Near Protocol that promotes the financing process for active projects through token sales. This allows investors to purchase prospective tokens at a discount when they are launched on the market.

However, NearPad isn’t the first Launchpad to use the Near Protocol. Skyward Finance formerly functioned as an IDO platform with a continuous auction mechanism and Heo Finance-focused operations based on the way of holding the platform token to purchase tokens early. When it comes to traditional applications, NearPAD will have to fight strongly with its competitors that have more novel applied technologies.

What Makes NearPAD Unique?

Automatic calculation of stake factor: Users stake PAD tokens to participate in IDO pools corresponding to the number of tokens staked.

Automatically join the pool: Users will be automatically included in the appropriate pool to join instead of manual manipulation.

Convert IDO pool tickets into NFT tokens: This feature helps to circulate IDO tickets to NFT Marketplaces, helping to increase market liquidity.

Auto-compound feature for yield farm pools: The feature that allows users to register and join Yield farm pools has been integrated into the platform. In addition, Auto-compound also helps you to monitor and manage your portfolio right on the exchange.
