Rocket Joe, Limitless Liquidity Launch platform on the Trader Joe


Rocket Joe

What is Rocket Joe?

Core Protocol Features

  • Participating users can earn issuing protocol tokens through a fair market price discovery mechanism.
  • Participating protocols can use Rocket Joe to acquire Protocol Owned Liquidity (POL).
  • Protocols launching from Rocket Joe will be able to raise a larger pool of liquidity, based on consumer demand for the Issuing protocol token.
  • With a larger pool of liquidity being raised, this will discourage front-running bots, easing volatility and providing a favorable trading experience. Users and the Protocol launching, both benefit here.
  • Rocket Joe is also a complementary primitive, designed to run in concurrence with all existing Avalanche launchpads.

Rocket Joe: 5 steps for Launching


  • Users stake JOE to earn rJOE. rJOE is earned over time.
  • rJOE can be accrued and used for launches when they open for deposit.

Phase 1: Deposit (2 days)

  • When a launch opens for deposit, users can exchange rJOE to gain access to the launch pool.
  • Once users have entered the launch pool, they can deposit AVAX to the launch pool. The user will now be allocated a % of that pool based on their AVAX deposit.
  • Users can withdraw their deposit at any time, however, there is a maximum withdrawal fee of up to 50% that scales in the final 24 hours. This is to prevent price manipulation ahead of launch.

Phase 2: Withdrawal (1 day) (Optional)

  • To enable optimal price correction, users will be given a 24-hour window to withdraw their tokens at a fixed fee of 20%.
  • Users may want to withdraw at this stage, if they are not happy with the price of the Issuing protocol token.
  • If users are happy with the price and their allocation share, they can remain in the pool for the launch phase.

Phase 3: Launch (Up to 7 days)

  • Users will receive LP tokens composed of their deposited AVAX + The issuing protocol token.
  • LP tokens will be locked for 3–7 days, dictated by the issuing protocol.
  • This can be timed to coincide with the unlock of tokens from an IDO Launchpad.


  • The Issuing protocol wishing to sustain accrued liquidity can do so by deploying a double reward farm on the Trader Joe platform.
