What is Initial Exchange Offering?

An Initial Exchange Offering, commonly known as an IEO, is a fundraising event that is conducted by an exchange platform. IEOs provide an increased level of trust among cryptocurrency projects, because the exchanges hosting the crowdsales actively participate in the fundraising process, which improves the efficiency of the crowdsale.

Initial Exchange Offering is a booming trend and has the potential to change the way investors look at token-based fundraising. Fundraising through IEO is considered safer by the investors since the exchange platforms would accept any project with due diligence. This fundraising option gives the investors the confidence of liquidity while giving the projects a ready-made user base to target their marketing efforts. Also, it reduces the burden of the KYC/AML process on the issuers as the exchanges take the responsibility of verifying investors and projects.

At Deqode, we have the right kind of experience, team, and expertise in developing and marketing tokens for your Initial Exchange Offering projects. Being the early adopters of IEO development services, we can help you launch your IEO successfully by offering an all-inclusive infrastructure for token distribution and marketing.
