Initial exchange offering

Initial exchange offering (IEO) is a variant on initial coin offerings, operated directly by cryptocurrency exchanges.

A notable example was when the Bitfinex exchange issued an IEO apparently to shore up its reserve for Tether tokens.[1]

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is looking into IEOs, with a view to acting against violations of securities laws.[2]
