BACKGROUND ON CRYPTOCURRENCIES
Bitcoin, the initial cryptocurrency, is created in 2008. It is a form of electronic currency, independent of the traditional couches, which allows users to make money directly from one computer to another, even on the other side of the world.
Bitcoin’s popularity has led to the creation of more than 2,000 cryptocurrencies, and is the driving force behind the launch of an industry as a whole worldwide, on the blockchain, a distributed ledger technology that drives it.
Cryptocurrencies can be traded on digital currency exchanges, all of which are online, and many of them are available on mobile phone applications. People to buy cryptocurrencies from the exchange, simply by logging on to their web sites.
Bitcoin, on Thursday, traded at $9,400 on the BitStamp exchange.
People are buying cryptocurrencies, primarily for speculation, because they have gone up in price so much over the last three years. Like a number of developers to buy up a specific currency in order to gain access to certain networks that are relevant to them.
Since 2008, the biggest financial names have entered the cryptocurrency space, from IBM to Goldman Sachs, and most recently, Facebook, which will be the blueprint for his own cryptocurrency in france.
But cryptocurrencies are risky. Since they are virtual currency, they can be compromised or lost if you lose the keys for the online wallets to store them. With no clear regulatory body to oversee the digital currency industry, which funds it would be difficult to restore once lost.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE IEO AND ICO?
IEOs are a by-product of the initial coin offerings (ICOs), which will start in 2016. ICOs is also a way to raise capital, bypassing banks and venture capital firms.
But the IEOs position on the cryptocurrency exchanges, which, for a fee, can effectively act as intermediaries, performing functions such as acquisition due diligence on a project, “know your customer” screening, marketing, and sale of coins, and the customers.
ICOs, on the other hand, can be carried out by a start-up itself, the shoulders, and the token offering, the cost, and the selling of such currencies on their web sites. They have managed to make nearly $29 billion for cryptocurrency companies, since 2016, but it slowed sharply this year and in the midst of a regulatory action against fraud, illegal offerings, led by the united states Securities and Exchange Commission.
The upper limit on the amount of items that can be purchased by IEOs, usually capped at about $20,000 – has enhanced the attractiveness of the offer to retail investors and has prevented the larger investors to articulate them.
Investors who are interested in participating in IEOs, visit the exchange’s website.

“It’s a new breed of fundraiser that would be able to change what is going on in the financial …, but the rules need to be sorted out.”
WHAT IS THE IEOS RAISED SO FAR?
Start-ups are doing, IEOs, however, are raising millions of dollars quickly, sometimes in just a few seconds, which is thought to be a trend in that the peak of the ICOs at the beginning of 2017.

WHAT DO THE IEOS WILL MEAN FOR THE EXCHANGES?
IEOs typically result in increased revenues to the exchange. The exchanges that are responsible for an idp internally displaced person will usually have to do with the review process of a project, for an additional fee. They will also receive compensation from the token that starts the trade on their exchange.
Market observers said the IEOs was at a time when cryptocurrency exchanges struggle as well as digital currencies slumped and the cryptocurrency of buyers has decreased. IEOs would give them some kind of lifeline.
A number of exchanges, however, IEOs has meant more users for their platform, and some of them are willing to give themselves to the screening process for the project, even without a listing fee.
