How is an Exchange Offering Different from an ICO?

While the exchange will continue to administer the working of the ‘Exchange tokens,’ an independent, autonomous team is designated the job of working on the Exchange Token.

Furthermore, the Exchange Offering is exclusively open for the exchange users only. While this creates an ambiguity as the exchange is open to the public. However, it gives assurance of KYC and AML compliance along with trust protection to the token holders.

The exchange reaffirms that an exchange offering is entirely different from an ICO as the exchange is a tangible running model, rather than an idea on a whitepaper. Hence, the chances of it performing, in the long run, are higher.

“Instead, the exchange is risking their credibility when doing IEOs, since it has no control over the IEO project team’s operation and product delivery as promised in the latter’s white paper… This provides an extra layer of protection to contributors.”

Furthermore, Exchange Offerings can increase the degree of decentralization for an exchange. It is established as the order books, and the Exchange Token decentrally regulates exchange controls. Moreover, the Exchange acts as physical administrators of the token and the exchange. Hence they can also take immediate action during unforeseen circumstances. The new age exchange offerings from Bittrex and Okex will inevitably compete with Decentralized Exchanges in the future.
