Adding liquidity to a new project

Hello everyone and thank you in advance for reading this.

I have a question that has haunted me for a while as I try to build a project.

Lets say that hypothetically, I am raising $500,000 for my project. I want those $500,000 to go into liquidity, and I will distribute the pre-ordered tokens among all people who purchased them. So lets say I add half of the total supply to the liquidity pool, and that I distribute the other half to everyone who pre-ordered tokens. Does that mean that the token price could only ever go 2x?

How does it work and what would the best solution be?

Thank you!
