Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) Is The New ICO
Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) Is The New ICO

If you keep an eye on the ICO industry’s news, you must be aware of the intimidating tendencies that take place these days. USA SEC increases its pressure, forcing the teams to shift from ICOs to STOs (Security Token Offerings). Alongside with that many of the projects are struggling to maintain the token value and list their tokens on the major exchanges.

However, there is a way to enter the market, put your token to the exchange, and incentivize trading even without conducting a regular ICO or STO. How is it possible? Meet IEO, which stands for Initial Exchange Offering. IEO is a smart way to launch a blockchain-based project and place your token on the exchange without taking the risks associated with a traditional ICO or STO.

♦ How Does An IEO Work?

An Initial Exchange Offering is a fundraising strategy that implies collaborating with a crypto exchange (or a number of exchanges) as a counterpart.

The project issues tokens, but instead of selling them directly to the investors, it sends them to the exchange, which in turn would sell the tokens to individuals.

The terms of the cooperation between the venture and the exchange are outlined in a contract. They may include a maximum contribution from one participant, a token price, etc.


♦ What Are The Benefits Of An IEO?

1. All the major exchanges have their own user bases, and this community can be your first target audience.

2. An IEO eliminates the risk of a ‘Gas War’ between the contributors.

3. The risk of third-party fraud is also eliminated since the investors know that the exchange Is the only place where tokens can be bought.

4. The fact that an exchange agreed to conduct an IEO for the certain project serves as an additional factor of trust and reliability. The users presume that the exchange has conducted its own research before letting the token in.

5. It is easier for the token to hit the exchange since it is already there.

6. You don’t need to carry out roadshows and investors’ meetings.

7. You don’t need to bother with transaction fees, token distribution, etc.

8. No need for KYC/AML (Know Your Client / Anti-Money Laundering) if the exchange has its own KYC/AML procedure.
