TeleportDAO (TST)

Total Raise: $9,625,000
Date: 16 Mar - 17 Apr

TeleportDAO is a light-client bridge designed to connect Bitcoin and its L2 networks with EVM chains in a more secure way. 

To validate cross-chain transactions, Teleport DAO utilizes relayers that transfer users’ on-chain data to the smart contract that validates cross-chain transactions. It is powered by the native $TST token, which is used for rewarding relayers and voting on DAO proposals within the platform.

The company has garnered support from a decent network of funds, such as CoinList, Quantstamp, and others, who invested over $2.5M into the project in 2023.

Now, in 2024, it is raising an additional $7.13M via the ICO round on CoinList, aiming to achieve a total raise of over $9.63M.

TeleportDAO Review

TeleportDAO is a crypto asset bridge designed to connect Bitcoin and its Layer 2 scaling solutions with other EVM networks, including Ethereum, Arbitrum, Polygon, BCS, and Optimism.

The TeleportDAO bridge stands out with its unique validation model, which, unlike the other validator-based crypto bridges, utilizes a Relay smart contract that validates transactions and relayers, which provide information to the Relay contract.

When users try to transfer their assets using the bridge, node runners deliver information to the Relay smart contract that validates whether the user hasn’t broken the rules and conditions of the source chain. This approach allows the Teleport DAO to avoid exploits related to node runners’ hacks, while maintaining the same level of decentralization as other bridges.

Despite the validation process being powered by a Relay smart contract, the protocol still requires the involvement of node runners to transfer the users’ on-chain data so the smart contract can validate this information. 

On top of the TeleportDAO has been built several dApps, including:

  • TeleSwap: cross-chain DEX that supports BTC and BRC-20 standard tokens swaps and asset transfers across Bitcoin, Ethereum, Polygon, and BNB chain networks;
  • TeleOrdinal: a decentralized, cross-chain marketplace for Bitcoin (Ordinals) NFTs that allows users to purchase Bitcoin NFTs with ERC-20 tokens.

Token utility: At the heart of the platform’s governance and rewarding mechanism lies its native $TST token. It is primarily used for rewarding relayers and granting access to decentralized voting within the TeleportDAO.

Since October 2023, the platform has conducted two phases of incentivized programs on CoinList, where over $5.9M was traded in Bitcoin and over $630K worth of Ordinals NFTs were traded. 

On April 11th, 2024, Teleport DAO  announced a public sale on the same platform - CoinList. During this sale, it aims to raise over $7.125M, allocating 7% of the total supply.

Taking into consideration the increased attention to Teleport DAO and the information mentioned above, the CoinLaunch team has analyzed the project to identify the major pros and cons of participating in its ICO:
