They are issued automatically whenever the demand exceeds supply and are priced algorithmically, based on investors' demand

Pool-Party is the place where DAOs and DeFi collide. A Pool-Party allows anyone to create a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) for their community or friend-group to save up for a shared goal or purchase. Funds don't sit idly in our DAOs, but are deposited in trusted DeFi protocols that allow you to earn interest plus yield farm up to three other tokens while working towards a goal. Look out for the $POOL governance token drop and Party add-ons coming in Q1 of 2021. Party add-ons will allow your Pool-Party to do more, like trading with Uniswap, holding NFTs, or interacting with other popular DeFi protocols all via DAO proposals.

StakerDAO is the cross-chain asset factory, enabling the vibrant future of decentralized finance. By the community. For the community.
StakerDAO is run by a community of blockchain and finance enthusiasts who make governance decisions for building cross-chain, decentralized financial assets in a compliant manner. STKR is the community-owned token used to govern StakerDAO.
One of the most promising applications of Ethereum is the decentralized (autonomous) organization, also known as a DAO. In 2016, the Ethereum community saw the first great experiment with DAOs with the launch of "The DAO." The DAO raised over $150 million dollars, but it ultimately failed due to legal and technical challenges.
The LAO was organized in the spirit of The DAO, as a member-directed venture capital fund organized in the United States, with an aim to be compliant with U.S. law. Like The DAO, The LAO allows Members to pool capital, invest in projects, and share in any proceeds from the investment.
The LAO is organized as a legal entity (a Delaware limited liability company) primarily administered via an online application (a "DApp") and related smart contracts. Launched in late April 2020, the LAO has backed over 30 projects across the Ethereum and blockchain ecosystem.
PESA (formerly Wificoin) is building a real-world crypto economy (Think: decentralized m-pesa). Over the last 2 years, they have already built a mobile-first "Neo-telco" that offers talk, text, data, wifi, globally, on-demand. Their shipped mobile clients have been featured as Top-grossing apps several times.
Now, they are building a protocol that turns phone numbers into a cross-chain wallet and mobile airtime (minutes, data, wifi) into collateral. This would in turn make it easy and intuitive for the real-world users that already spend ~$2T annually on mobile and broadband internet to adopt crypto.
X-Margin develops credit and clearing infrastructure for institutional trading. All core products leverage Confidential Computing and Zero Knowledge Proofs, which combine in an architecture capable of privately computing on large amounts of market and portfolio data in real-time. Current digital asset and traditional market credit risk management and clearing solutions require the trust of a central authority (e.g. Clearing House, Credit Score Agency). Because X-Margin generates proofs of the privacy and accuracy of computations, it acts as a neutral technology layer supporting trading relationships.
