Dutch auctions on Kalao Go
Giving NFT creators more tools for a successful launch
Current NFT drops can face problems for both NFT creators and buyers such as
- How to fairly price your NFTs?
- How to get NFTs in the hands of your real community?
- How to minimize the risk of speculators sniping drops and reselling on the secondary market?
Dutch auctions help solve this! They promise better price discovery and prevent gas wars.

We’ve already helped dozens of creators successfully launch their projects using our Kalao Go service.
The next step is to offer artists more choices for how to distribute their NFTs on the primary market. So far, creators were able to sell NFTs at a fixed price on a first come first served basis, with an optional whitelist, or sell NFTs to the highest bidders. Now we’re launching Dutch auctions. Dutch auctions start at a high price, which then slowly decreases over time. The price development is determined beforehand as the creator sets
a) a starting price
b) a price decrease by amount x every y minutes
c) a reserve price
Creators can also add our optional reimbursement module. If activated, buyers will get back the difference between the price they paid and the closing price (lowest price). As a result, all buyers pay the same, fair price.
Dutch auctions, if designed well, prevent gas wars and enable price discovery where creators rather than speculators capture buyers’ willingness-to-pay.
With the addition of dutch auctions to our english auctions and fixed price offerings, we’re confident you’ll find the right fit on Kalao Go. Whichever method you choose, we’ll do everything we can to help your NFT project get started on the right foot.
