Introducing Arbitpad: The First Insured, Arbitrum Focused IDO Launchpad & Accelerator

6 min readMar 21


Greetings, Medium community! We are thrilled to introduce Arbitpad, a launchpad and accelerator that specializes in supporting IDOs focused on Arbitrum. Our goal is to connect early-stage projects and innovative creators building on Arbitrum One with the ever-expanding community of Arbitrum token holders who are eager to invest in promising projects.

The Arbitrum network has been experiencing rapid growth, with daily transactions surpassing 1.5 million and the total value locked (TVL) on the network approaching $3.5 billion as of March 2023. This underscores the widespread adoption of the Arbitrum blockchain and its increasing popularity among developers and users in the decentralized finance (DeFi) space.

The Arbitrum Mainnet is moving towards the next stage of decentralization, where community members will be able to participate in governance by voting on proposals that will bring about changes to the network. This has generated a lot of interest in Arbitrum, and new investors are entering the cryptocurrency market.

In the past three months, we have observed a surge of over 30% in the total value locked (TVL) of existing projects on the Arbitrum network.

However, despite the growth of new projects, there is a high risk of failure or abandonment by dishonest project founders. For new crypto investors, these shady projects can appear as viable investment opportunities, making it challenging to differentiate between legitimate and fraudulent projects.

Moreover, most Arbitrum projects are currently minting their tokens as Ethereum tokens, which could make the tokens vulnerable to wormhole attacks and hacks. To address this challenge, there is a growing need for more projects and launchpads that are native to the Arbitrum blockchain. That’s where we come in.

We are proud to introduce Arbitpad, an insured IDO platform designed for projects building on the Arbitrum blockchain. Our platform offers a safer and more secure investment opportunity, with a focus on projects that have been thoroughly vetted for legitimacy and potential for success.

Our team is currently developing a platform that aims to provide a secure and conducive environment for $ARB token holders who are eager to invest in promising projects on Arbitrum at an early stage. We also aim to connect innovative founders building on the Arbitrum blockchain with the wider community of Arbitrum token holders.

Through our platform, we seek to create a transparent and trustworthy system that ensures that investors can confidently put their funds into legitimate projects that have been thoroughly vetted for potential and viability. We understand the importance of early-stage investing, and we want to provide a platform that offers an opportunity for investors to get in on the ground floor of the next big project on Arbitrum.

Furthermore, our platform is designed to support founders building on the Arbitrum network by providing them with the necessary tools and resources needed to launch their projects successfully. We will offer guidance and support to founders throughout the entire process, from ideation to launch, ensuring that their projects are thoroughly vetted for legitimacy and potential.

A Brief Introduction To Arbitpad

Arbitpad is an incubator, launchpad, and IDO platform that focuses on projects being built on the Arbitrum network. Our platform aims to promote the development and growth of quality and productive projects, ensuring maximum long-term value for our APD token holders and participants in our future IDO launches.

At Arbitpad, we understand the importance of ensuring that projects launched on our platform have a sustainable long-term outlook, rather than short-term gains for project founders. To achieve this, we have put in place rigorous vetting processes to ensure that only the most promising and viable projects are promoted to the market.

We believe in creating a level playing field for all stakeholders, and we have designed our platform to prevent token dumping by project founders at the end of each launch. Our approach to IDO launches is geared towards bringing significant investment into the Arbitrum Ecosystem, and we are committed to supporting the growth of promising projects on the network.

Through our platform, we provide support for project founders at every stage of their journey, from ideation to launch, and beyond. We offer guidance, mentorship, and resources to ensure that projects are thoroughly vetted for legitimacy, viability, and long-term sustainability.

How Are We Different?

At Arbitpad, we strongly believe in the responsibility and right of the blockchain industry to govern itself and minimize the threat of fraudulent projects and practices, while maximizing the potential of decentralized finance (DeFi) for both individuals and the global community.

We recognize that the DeFi space is still largely unregulated, and this has led to a proliferation of fraudulent projects and practices that undermine the integrity of the industry. We are committed to playing our part in addressing this challenge by enacting self-governance measures that promote transparency, accountability, and legitimacy in the DeFi space.

Our platform stands out from other launchpads and incubators by prioritizing quality and productivity over short-term gains for project founders. We carefully vet and promote only the most promising and viable projects, ensuring that our investors and token holders have access to high-quality investment opportunities.

Arbitpad Features

Arbitpad is proud to offer a range of features that set us apart from other launchpads and incubators in the DeFi space. Here are some of the key features of our platform:

Insured IDO Launchpad: Our platform includes an insured IDO launchpad that is designed to protect our community from the risk of total loss of investment. This means that founders and projects raising funds on Arbitpad will be required to lock a percentage of their raised funds for a preset time, to be released only when certain milestones are met. If the project fails or the founders abandon the project during the lock period, the contract will draw from the insurance treasury to make the IDO participants whole. This innovative feature is a game-changer for investors who want to participate in early-stage projects on the Arbitrum network while minimizing their risk.

Staking and Farming Portal: $APD token holders will have the opportunity to stake their tokens on our staking portal and earn rewards subject to a multiplier that benefits long-term holders. The longer you stake your tokens, the more rewards you can earn. This feature incentivizes long-term investment and creates a sustainable ecosystem for our token holders.

Community-driven Governance: We believe in the importance of community-driven governance and have designed our platform to reflect this principle. $APD token holders will have the ability to propose and vote on changes to the platform, ensuring that the community has a say in the future development of Arbitpad.

Comprehensive Due Diligence: Our platform is committed to comprehensive due diligence and vetting of all projects before they are promoted to the market. This ensures that only quality and productive projects are selected, minimizing the risk of fraudulent projects and maximizing the potential for long-term value for our investors and token holders.

Expert Mentorship: We recognize the importance of supporting project founders throughout the entire process, from ideation to launch and beyond. Our platform provides expert mentorship and resources to ensure that projects are thoroughly vetted for legitimacy, viability, and long-term sustainability.

What’s Next For Arbitpad

ArbitPad’s vision is not limited to being just a launchpad and token staking ecosystem; instead, it aims to become a comprehensive refi ecosystem tailored specifically for Arbitrum. The goal is to enable users to create their own tokens, deploy smart contracts, nodes, and launch projects with a few clicks of a button.

Projects that launch on ArbitPad and utilize their services will have to pay a monthly fee in APD tokens, which will be burned, decreasing the circulating supply and increasing their value. Alternatively, they can allocate 4% of raised funds to buy back and burn $APD tokens, providing additional value for APD token holders.

The team behind ArbitPad believes in transparency and honesty and acknowledges that they cannot achieve their goals alone. Instead, they need a decentralized community committed to the project’s long-term vision.

Over the next few weeks, ArbitPad will refine its brand, continue developing its platform, and finalize its Tokenomics. They will also work on their go-to-market strategy and develop key partnerships, including exploring how the $APD token can support specific charities.

The project’s Litepaper and roadmap will be announced shortly, including details about a presale, public sale, listing on Camelot Dex, and platform launch dates. The team promises to maintain transparency and communication with the community through frequent updates and developments.

In conclusion, ArbitPad is an exciting adventure, and the team invites everyone to join them on this journey.
