- What is the recommended ratio of initial supply on pancakeswap to get a “realistic” Market cap ?
It feels like one can put any price he wants on his tokens, but then you get a crazy marketcap.
This is a philosophical question, so these are my opinions, not statements of fact.
In the current market I think 50 BNB per 1 Trillion or 5 ETH is a great amount of Liquidity to have. One of the signs I look for on new tokens is the amount. If they have 1 BNB it tells me they are not a serious token with very limited funding. However I think 5 BNB is doable if you have very little budget. So 5 BNB is minimum.
You can control how much your marketcap is, but ultimately you should look at how much BNB is in the pool. I think Marketcap is a very very very BAD (yes bad) metric for Dex coins (PCS/Uni) because it doesn’t reveal the BNB/ETH in the pool. Although I haven’t seen it done yet, I predict that a new metric will eventually come into play that ratios the total supply down to reasonable levels and quantifies the BNB/ETH in the pool to that ratio’d number.
- Also, how many initial liquidity should one offer ? What is the right ratio between liquidity and Marketcap to avoid too much price fluctuations, and high fees ?
As above, I think 5 BNB should be the minimum. Your goal should be 50 BNB for a starting project and work towards gaining more and more buyers, raising the liquidity to 200+ BNB.
1 Trillion is the max supply I would have for a token. I think the days of Quardrillion+ is numbered. My preferred number would be 1 Billion to 100 Billion. Having a giant supply of coins is a marketing gimmick.
Half of the Max Supply should go into the Liquidity, and the other half should be used for budget reasons (not dumping), things like airdrops should be considered.
I’m not sure what you mean by high fees? Can you elaborate? You should set your taxes fairly low, but it just depends on the type of coin you want to do.
- If one doesn’t add automatic LP, would the liquidity stay the same as what was initially provided, if no one adds liquidity ?
By automatic LP do you mean the Swap and Liquify mechanism? If so then the Liquidity will change depending on the buyers or sellers through swaps. Read more about AMMs and how they work here. https://uniswap.org/docs/v2/protocol-overview/how-uniswap-works/
For some projects, you should encourage your customers to add their liquidity. More liquidity providers means that the chance of the product being legitimate is much higher. If your liquidity relies on 1 person, they can rug by removing all the liquidity after selling lots of tokens.
