Lesson 15: Your Guide to Binance Launchpad and Launchpool

Lesson Intro:

The world’s largest crypto exchange, Binance, entered into a collaboration agreement with our nonprofit, the Prison Professors Charitable Corporation. With this collaboration, we’re able to provide justice-impacted people with a great resource they can use to learn about cryptocurrency, decentralized finance (DeFi), Web3.0, Artificial Intelligence, and other topics that relate to the digital economy. The agreement is part of our nonprofit’s ongoing efforts to help people prepare for success after prison.

Some people have access to our videos, others do not. If a staff member in your prison will authorize videos, invite them to contact Prison Professors for information on how we can send DVDs with additional educational materials to help people learn–and potentially an in-person presentation in your facility.

Each lesson includes critical thinking questions and a glossary. We encourage participants to use these lessons, and to memorialize their learning path by building a profile on Prison Professors Talent. More information on how to build a personal profile at the end of this workbook.

15. Your Guide to Binance Launchpad and Launchpool


Your Guide to Binance Launchpad and Launchpool: Binance Launchpad and Launchpool provide unique opportunities in the crypto space, offering early access to innovative projects and earning rewards. Binance Launchpad introduces Initial Exchange Offerings (IEOs) for secure and efficient crowdfunding, while Launchpool allows users to lock assets to earn new tokens. Both platforms offer global exposure, fair token distribution, and professional guidance. This guide explains their differences, benefits, and how to get started as a user or project team, ensuring a safe and supportive environment for crypto investments.

Key Takeaways

  • Binance Launchpad and Launchpool offer users diverse opportunities in the crypto space, from early access to innovative projects to earning rewards.
  • The Binance token launch platform provides a secure environment for both projects and users interested in joining crypto crowdfunding events.
  • The platform’s holistic support includes initial token issuance as well as guidance from Binance’s listing and investment teams.


Binance Launchpad and Binance Launchpool are both part of Binance’s token launch platform. These platforms are designed to foster innovation by providing support to aspiring and existing blockchain projects.

Binance is constantly looking for strong crypto teams with a unique and innovative vision. Its token launch platform offers a full range of offerings, from advisory services during token issuance and launch to post-listing and post-launch marketing.

In this guide, we will cover what Binance Launchpad and Launchpool are, their differences, potential benefits, and how you can get involved as a user or project team.

Binance Launchpad: Pioneering Crypto Crowdfunding

Before Binance Launchpad, it was common for blockchain projects to raise funds and launch their tokens via independent crowdfunding events, known as Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). However, this old school crowdfunding approach was often marked with technical failures, fraud, and a serious lack of user protection.

In 2019, Binance Launchpad was created, pioneering the concept of Initial Exchange Offering (IEO). The introduction of IEOs on Binance Launchpad caused an important paradigm shift in the crypto crowdfunding space, benefiting both blockchain projects and their supporters. Since then, projects have been able to raise funds, and users can support these projects in a safer and more convenient way.

The Differences Between Binance Launchpad and Binance Launchpool

Binance Launchpad and Binance Launchpool have similar goals and are part of the same Binance token launch platform. However, there are important differences between the two.

Binance Launchpad was created in 2019 to introduce a new method for crypto crowdfunding. Binance Launchpool was introduced in 2020, allowing users to lock their assets to get new assets in return.

What Is Binance Launchpad?

As we’ve learned, Binance Launchpad is the pioneering platform for Initial Exchange Offerings (IEOs). Launchpad allows users to purchase new tokens as part of an IEO. It has revolutionized crypto crowdfunding by providing a secure and efficient means for transformative blockchain projects to raise capital.

Binance Launchpad prioritizes user and project protection, offering top-notch security during token sales and eliminating the need for projects to create their fundraising platforms, reducing susceptibility to attacks. It facilitates growth for deserving projects by providing exposure to millions of global users, ensuring world-class liquidity and multiple trading pairs post-launch.

In addition, the platform’s holistic support includes initial token issuance as well as guidance from Binance’s listing and investment teams, which carefully evaluate Launchpad applications. With Launchpad, crypto projects benefit from token launches within a trusted platform, leveraging Binance’s status as the world’s leading exchange to access a vast community of crypto holders and investors.

Binance Launchpad benefits

  • Early access to innovative projects
  • Safe token launch environment
  • Global exposure
  • Fair token distribution
  • World-class market liquidity
  • Professional guidance and support

What Is Binance Launchpool?

Binance Launchpool enables crypto holders to lock their assets to earn new tokens. Unlike Binance Launchpad, which primarily involves token purchases, Launchpool allows users to receive new project assets by locking BNB and other supported tokens at no cost.

There are multiple benefits to participating in Binance Launchpool. First, the process of earning new tokens is very simple: you lock tokens with Binance and get rewarded with new tokens. The rewards are proportional to your subscription amount and the Launchpool period.

Binance Launchpool offers flexibility in earning tokens, allowing users to receive accrued rewards at any time and to unlock funds at their discretion. Also, the platform extends Binance’s support to projects featured on Launchpool, offering advisory services, community engagement, and marketing reach. 

Binance Launchpool benefits

  • Earn from locking assets. No purchase is required.
  • Flexibility and control.
  • Early access to innovative projects.
  • Safe token launch environment.
  • Global exposure.
  • Fair token distribution.
  • World-class market liquidity.
  • Professional guidance and support.

How to Access Binance Launchpad and Launchpool

  1. Log in to your Binance account and find [Launchpad & Launchpool] at the top menu.
  2. Next, you will see Binance’s Token Launch Platform page. The first section will show upcoming or active token sales (if any).
  3. If you scroll down further, you will see the Launchpad section.
  4. You can click [View More] to see all previously launched projects and their respective data. This will take you to a separate landing page. 

You can switch from one section to another using the navigation buttons at the top.

How to Use Binance Launchpad

Binance Launchpad uses a subscription format. This means users have to commit a certain amount of BNB to the crowdfunding event (token sale). To join a Binance Launchpad token sale as an early supporter of the project, you have to hold some BNB in your Binance wallet and subscribe to the token sale during the subscription period.

Below is an example of a Launchpad token sale. The subscription period is closed, and the token sale is finished, but we can use the information as a reference. Notice that the token sale lasts a few days, from the BNB Holding Calculation Period to the Final Token Distribution.

This page also includes the project’s website, whitepaper, research report, detailed information about the sale rules, and an FAQ.

How to Use Binance Launchpool

Binance Launchpool allows users to acquire new token rewards by locking their existing cryptocurrency holdings. The locking is usually done in BNB or a stablecoin like FDUSD.

To participate, head to the Binance Launchpool page and find a project you want to support that is currently open for farming.

In this example, there are two farming pools, one for FDUSD and one for BNB. If you have both tokens, you can allocate your funds into different pools by clicking [Custom Allocation].

The total rewards, farming period, supported tokens, and APY estimate will vary from project to project. After locking your assets, you will start earning the project tokens. When the farming period is over, your locked assets and all earned rewards will be sent automatically to your Binance Spot account.

Closing Thoughts

Binance Launchpad and Launchpool are powerful tools for crypto enthusiasts, offering access to new projects, exclusive token launches, and opportunities to earn rewards. As Binance continues to innovate, users can navigate the crypto landscape confidently, leveraging these token launch platforms for growth and engagement.

Advocacy Initiative:

We encourage participants to begin memorializing the ways they are using time in prison to prepare for success upon release. I encourage participants to create a personal profile by:

  1. Writing a simple biography
  2. Writing a daily journal to show all that you’re learning
  3. Writing book reports that memorialize the books you read
  4. Writing a release plan to show the ways you’re preparing for success upon release

These strategies helped me immensely once I got out. By using my time wisely inside, I was able to raise capital, build businesses, and succeed in ways that few people would think are possible for someone who served multiple decades in prison. Anyone can do the same—if they prepare first.

If you’d like to follow in the same footsteps, I encourage you to begin building your personal profile. Get started by sending an email message to our team at:

Our interns will accept your email invite. You may then send the interns a message such as:

Dear Interns,  

My name is xxx, and I am in prison. I would like to begin showing the strategies I am using to prepare for success upon release. Please send me a Release Plan Workbook, and any other books that will help me prepare for the job market. After receiving those workbooks, I will begin building my profile to show others how I am using my time inside to prepare for success outside.
