The Initial Community Offering

This is a guest article piece by Jeremy “JJ” Khoo, CEO of iFashion Group and Advisor — Business Development and Partnerships at Consentium.

One of the first few token sales that went straight to exchanges was done on the Binance Launchpad- GIFTO sold out successfully in a matter of seconds really.

Since then, many exchanges have done similar token sales, coining (excuse the pun) a new term — Initial Exchange Offering or “IEO”. What this means is that instead of buying on the token issuer website, customers can buy directly on these exchanges, and thereby having a guaranteed listing of the token for trade after the initial sales.

This brings to mind — why token issuers are doing this, and what benefits can the public possibly get from this move? Consequently, is this the future of all token sales?

Access to private sales

Many who have lost money in ICOs have one main gripe- the significant discounts given to private placement that they do not have access to, which leads to a drastic reduction in prices on trading day below public sale prices. This leads to a more equal opportunity for customers to buy tokens at discounts.

Weeding out Scams

Exchanges have done their extensive due diligence in the token offerings and the companies behind them. By staking their reputation and technology on these offerings, customers can have a great peace of mind that such token sales are conducted with the utmost security and integrity. Similarly, other platforms are able to offer the same level of security in terms of proven technologies.

More Equitable offering of tokens

By having a more diverse and larger number of places to sell tokens, issuers have are able to tap on a wider network other than their own websites. Customers can also access the token offering more readily in their respective channels.

The Initial Community Offering

Consentium is a chat application which allows for multi-cryptocurrency transfers within the app. The team has spoken to multiple upcoming ICOs and has secured strong interest in having a portion of their pre-ICOs and ICOs done directly within the chat app. This of course means that they will cultivate and grow their communities on the Consentium app in itself.

With the secure nature of the Consentium app and wallet, this portion of the ICO can be done without fear of phishing and other scams, as the group admin and associated wallet is clearly demarcated. Also, the issuers can directly sell their tokens to the community.

The Future of Token Sales

Together with ICOs, IEOs and now community offerings, we feel that the future of token sales will be diverse and multi-platform, leading to a more secure and equal token sale landscape.


首次社区发行

其中率先直接进入交易平台销售的代币是在币安网快速启动板上销售的-GIFTO在几秒钟内就成功售罄。

从那时起,许多交易平台进行了类似的代币销售,因此创造了一个新的术语“首次交易平台发行”或“Initial Exchange Offering (IEO)”。这意味着客户们可以直接在这些交易平台上购买代币,而不用在代币发行网站上购买。这也代表首次发行之后,代币保证可以上市交易。

这使我们开始思考:为什么代币发行者这么做?公众能从这一举动中得到什么好处?这会成为所有代币销售的未来吗?

私人销售渠道

许多在首次币发行中赔钱的人都抱怨他们无法获得代币发行时直接销售的大幅折扣,这导致交易日价格大幅低于公开销售价格。首次交易平台发行将使得客户购买折扣代币的机会更为均等。

防止诈骗

交易平台已经对代币发行及其背后的公司做了广泛的尽职调查。代币发行关系到这些交易平台的声誉和技术,他们会最大限度的保障代币销售的安全和诚信,客户们大可放心。同样,其他平台也会用成熟的技术提供相同的安全级别。

更公平地发行代币

除了自己的网站,发行者能够利用外界更加多样化、更多数量、更广泛的网络进行代币销售。客户们也可以通过他们各自的渠道更容易地获得代币产品。

首次社区发行

嘉信是一个聊天应用程序,允许在应用程序内进行多个加密货币传输。嘉信团队已经就即将到来的多个首次社区发行进行了谈判,并已确保一定比例的准首次社区发行和首次社区发行直接在聊天应用程序内完成。当然,这意味着他们将在嘉信应用程序内部培育和发展他们的社区。

由于嘉信应用程序和钱包的安全特性,组管理员和相关钱包完全被分开,这部分首次社区发行可以不用担心网络仿冒和其他诈骗。此外,发行人可以直接向社区出售他们的代币。

代币销售的未来

从首次币发行、首次交易平台发行到现在的社区发行,我们可以预见未来代币销售会是多样化和多平台的,会更加安全和平等。
