The PUBLIC Offering allows any KYC Participant with more than $2500 USD worth of tokens in their wallets to participate in Coin Offerings on DAO Maker. PUBLIC offerings can be compared to Freemium access. By staking DAO, users can unlock Premium Accounts to join SHOs that have a higher winning chance and larger allocations. Users that are staking DAO tokens can also join PUBLIC SHOs, their staked DAO counts as assets.

The main difference between the two is that the winning chance for DAO SHOs is higher as there are fewer participants and the fee structure.
