IEO

By Cryptomcmillan1 | Updated on May 24, 2020
Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) is a spin-off of Initial Coin Offering (ICO), where the sale of tokens are conducted on an exchange rather than by the coin team themselves. IEOs were popular amongst coin teams as it offered a way for teams to be listed on exchanges upon launch, and was also perceived to be more secure for investors as it is already listed and tradeable.
