Coincheck, Japanese cryptocurrency exchange, revealed on Thursday, its intention to launch an initial exchange offering (IEO) platform. This is basically to raise funds through utility tokens. Coincheck suffered a $530 million hack in January 2018. Also, the Japanese online brokerage Monex Group acquired it for $33.5 million in April of that year.
IEO is gaining attention and ensures more reliability as a method of securing funds. Already 12 cryptocurrency exchanges, including OKEx, Huobi, and Bittrex, have announced their IEO platforms this year, and 39 projects have already participated in an IEO.
