How to Launch a Cap Table on Allo

Launching a cap table on Allo is easy, and can be completed in a few minutes. Here are official links for testnet and mainnet platforms

Summary

The summary shows an overview of the information you'll need to launch.

Summary

Name

  • Cap table name is the name of your cap table contracts. It will be public and visible on-chain
  • Company's legal name is used later on for legal documents and signatures. It remains private between you and your holders

Groups

Groups help you cluster holders with the same terms. All investors in the same round will likely have the same vesting settings, and should be within the same group. A holder can be added to a group later with a modified first vesting date, more on this later.


Groups
  • Group Name helps you identify each segment instead of using its token id. Learn more about group token ids
  • Allocation is the percentage of the fully diluted total supply for the group. The minimum amount of supply possible is 0.0001 bps (or 0.000001%).
  • Preferred Group are groups that have unconditional vesting and cannot be terminated. Investors will likely be preferred compared to employees whose contracts can be terminated
  • Exercise Cost is the fee paid to mint 0.0001 bps of the total supply. As an example, if the exercise cost is 1 USDC per 0.0001 bps, a holder will pay 1M USDC to exercise 1% of total supply. The minimal exercise cost is dependent on token decimals, for instance for USDC it would be 10^-6.
info

Select your preferred contract currency even if you don't have an exercise cost. This currency will be used if you change your mind in the future.

Holders

  • Holder Name can be their address or mainnet ens name.
  • Holder Allocation is their portion of the total supply.
  • Holder Name can be their address or mainnet ens name
  • Holder Allocation is their portion of the total supply
tip

We recommend asking holders for a multisig or hardware wallet address. Do not use a hot wallet or browser extension wallet.

Vesting

Vesting is customizable. You can choose to vest using standard or block times

  • Cadence is the amount of time for a single vesting event to occur.
  • Unit allows you to vest using a time-based schedule, or vest by block.
  • Installments is how many total vesting events / cadence's get triggered.
  • Cliff is the date when the holder becomes eligible for gradual vesting and is able to exercise vested shares from the first vesting date. Before reaching the cliff date, the holder is not eligible to their vested shares.
  • Vesting Start Date / Block is the moment in time when the group starts vesting. It can be both in the past & future, if left blank it will start from the current timestamp for time-based cadences and the current block for block-based schedules.
Vesting Date

Lock Ups

The token unlock date determines when ERC-20s become claimable. Regardless of vesting status, holders can only claim their tokens after this date.
