What is an auction?

Auction in blockchain world means a tool which enables large volumes of bidders to participate in trustless sales events devoid of third party interference and approval.

Difference between Auctions and IDOs?

IDOs (Initial Dex Offerings) are when tokens launch on launchpads to raise funds. This sometimes come with a lengthy process and strict scrutinization of projects.

Auctions are decentralized which means it can provide a platform for everyone to create and participate with zero limitations.
