Initial Exchange Offering (IEO)

An Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) is a fundraising method for cryptocurrency projects, which is conducted through a cryptocurrency exchange platform. In an IEO, the project team partners with an exchange that conducts the token sale on its platform and handles the listing of the token. Investors can participate in the token sale using the exchange's platform and typically need to go through a know-your-customer (KYC) process.

IEOs have gained popularity due to their potential benefits for both the project team and investors. For the project team, an IEO provides access to the exchange's user base and its marketing resources, which can help increase visibility and liquidity for the project's token. For investors, an IEO provides a level of trust and security since the exchange has already vetted the project team and their project, reducing the likelihood of scams and fraud.

However, IEOs have also faced criticism for potential conflicts of interest since exchanges may have a financial interest in the success of the project. Additionally, IEOs have faced scrutiny from regulators due to concerns over investor protection and compliance with securities laws.

Examples of exchanges that have conducted IEOs include Binance, Huobi, and OKEx.
