the best hyped ICO so far is still BTT, good return good trends
https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/bittorrent

BTT was not an ICO, it's an IEO, and to prove, you can see it's rating here, https://coincodex.com/ieo/bittorrent-token/
That's just one of the site that gives rating.



You are right, too big focus is on exchanges, as they are supervising the project. We should still focus
on the project and the product itself and the exchange should be secondary,

Investors will decide on that matter.  They will choose a platform or investment they will think they will profit.

but I can understand that in Bittrex or in Binance people have more confidence.

Of course, these exchanges has a good reputation, people will trust them over ICO who is run by people without proven good reputation.

My understanding for IEOs is basically instead of project handling raising funds etc. It will be for an exchange to do so.

I think the funds that will be collected will still go for the development of the exchange  . so i think ieo's dont really differ from an ico  .

An IEO hosted by Yobit or Binance can clearly not be compared. In other words, the exchange gives more credibility to the project regardless of whether it's worth it or not.

Yes  . people will only be basing on good exchange so that they will have a confident that they wont be scam and they can also gain confident that their investment will grow  .

Am I the only one who thinks this is actually a bad thing

Yes . you might be the only one that thinks that ieo's are bad because majority of us are agreeing that ieo's are a good alternative to ico's because they are less risky and more profitable  .

you are very right with the opinion. Aside that, if there is any form of hack on the exchange then the ICO funds is lost too. and exchanges will be the determinant for any successful project, what if an exchange rejects a project unfairly, other exchanges will do too and in essence they be the decision makers

Basically, there is no assurance really when a project is going to be successful even though it might be listed through IEOs, ICOS have already done that and the success of a project will going to depend on how good the project is, no matter what exchange will be it into. And that's a fact to consider the best projects on the market.

Personally I don't see it as a bad idea but I am thinking it will be easier to scam people with IEO because many people can easily trust IEO these day than ICO.
That possibility could have happened when many people began to trust the IEO, if we first saw the ICO launch, many people flocked to believe this to get maximum results, but the ICO gradually became a hotbed of fraud like in the last few times, many ico ended in fraud.

No they are not bad. It is a good step in the right direction. Despite the fact they are taken advantage of by exchanges, and not entirely foolproof, yet it still solves the intrinsic problems of cryptocurrency volatility contributed by fraud from project developers.

IEOs of some particular reputable exchange are amazing to me: but some exchanges (which let's not forget do about 98% fake volume...apart from a few exceptions like Binance) are supposed to provide the credibility? Smiley IEOs sell out in minutes or seconds...but they are all pumped to create FOMO. Just so the token goes up and those behind the IEOs profit from it. Others buy after the token is listed, pushing it further up...and then eventually that token will be dumped. This kind of stuff is killing the reputation of projects that actually do their best to deliver

That exchanges give credibility to the project, does it also mean that the project will skyrocket when listed on such the exchange. Let me use this scenario, after the IEO, a project is sold out, right. Then have we stopped to think what happens afterwards? How serious will the project team be to continue developing that project? This is no longer the business of the exchange.

What a happened to the ICO are the indications that no matter how good you are, scammers will always find their way to get money. An IEO working with the top exchanges are still not a safe investment so don't believe easily even if its a Binance exchange. IEO can still be manipulated, the volume can be manipulated and if they achieve to sold out in just one our for sure they are just trying to make a hype and when they hit the exchange they will just dump the price so try to analyze it.

As you know most of ICO was scams and others are dead and after IEO launched investors are willing to invest in projects and almost every projects getting success.
Sometimes, this issue of ICO scam, I just hope we are not really blowing it out of proportion, I just thought to myself now, the rate at which we see all ICOs as scam, how come I have still not fallen a victim of any despite my continuous participation, I know I research on them a lot before investing, but I don’t think I am that perfect not to have fallen a victim of at least 1, all the years I have spent in this ICO market, I have never for once been scammed.

I know that IEO projects are very good right now, for the fact they come directly from reputable exchanges, I just hope that one day, 1 person will not fault it and change the trend whereby everyone will start condemning it again.

This is a new game started by many different exchanges to raise their own funds. Previous crowdsale were much good because people had time to get to know the project in detail and can invest as per it. But sometimes due to funding the projects failed to start and had delays but that was still acceptable. But in case of IEO every exchange had created their own coins and conditions apply that IEO can be bought with those only and 80-90% times people and investors cannot buy it and the same old story pump and dump making people loose money.

On the other hand many projects needs start up and listing in an exchange like IEO can solve such problems providing the funding platform.But unfortunately now--a-days many shit projects are coming every now and then and making people rekkt.

at the moment the IEO is busy talking in this forum. I interpret what you say about the credibility of an ico that does an IEO in some exchanges, especially large exchanges such as binance. yes regardless whether or not it is feasible or even can even scam.
in my opinion, however, we will really need regulation to overcome every thing that can involve crypto

IEOs held by binance should be not compared with others exchanger. Every exchanger have their own method when doing analysis about the project. But i agree we should invest on IEOs held by exchanger with good reputation because exchanger with good reputation must be wont take a risk
Binance is the Best exchange out there and it cannot and should not be compared with the small common exchanges because of many reasons. The fact that Binance has been so over crowded is due to the fact that it has been offering great services to its users and this is purely the reason why people prefer Binance. IEO conducted by Binance have been great success and one should try to be part of IEO on Binance.

I don't see anything bad with IEOs. The rule and belief system behind IEO's work is comparable to smart contract. In light of the fact that the IEO is another project for ventures that need development funds.

We can not say that ICO's are a good or bad know because this trend is just sated after a big crash of ICO's. IEO's' started by exchange directly  and there is a low chance of scam that ICO's

Participated in the ieo on binance and gate , once there and there , the projects of course after the release are very much , and the exchange take responsibility for the project , I think if you go only on those exchanges that you trust

I agree with you, everyone who participates in the IEO is like a project that they have written in white paper, many do not even go to the project site. The main thing is to enter the IEO and quickly throw off tokens/coins with a profit. And they are not interested in the future of the project.

IEO's can't be be good or bad. They are exist and that's all. For now - investors and traders believe in IEO and only that is important. We cant say how long it will be, but it is still profitable to invest in IEO.

IEO is majorly established to take charge of exchange in our crypto project, every change will definitely have a positive side and negative side depending on which side it has been to you from time, i believe it will help to reduce scams and help to fasten the delay of many token from getting into exchange. but it may have to reject some project.

Still profitable for whom? For those who can make bot's farm to make orders on the first? Or have enough knowledge to hack timer on others? What about so stupid traders that bought on the these pumps? Can they say that all IEO's are profitable?  Grin
I think it's a good exchange idea to make some hype about it and nothing more. Projects are fuel for this hype. And it's sad

IEOs are not meant to be bad, rather they are meant to reduce scam while helping upcoming projects raise funds. But on the other hand, they way it is going, your last sentence is what it looks like; that is, nowadays investors only concentrate on the exchange and it's ability to give them reasonable return while forgetting what the project is all about or if the team is capable.

Not all IEOs are bad, you just need to make sure to do research and don't go invest in IEOs on shady exchanges.

I think if you go with Binance IEOs you're on the safe side.
