(Are) IEOs for Dummies(?)

The initial exchange offering, or “IEO,” was originally heralded as a “new and improved” version of the ICO and “ICO 2.0.” But recently the crypto fundraising model has come under fire, with several examples losing substantial token value in a very short period of time (including two on the incredibly popular cryptocurrency exchange Binance losing 70% of value). Worse yet, rumors are beginning to surface which, if they are to be believed, suggest that many IEOs are nothing more than elaborate cryptocurrency exchange-sanctioned pump-and-dump schemes.

IEO: ICO 2.0 or scam?

So what is the real story? Gulovsen Law Office is trying to find out and has begun investigating these rumors in order to try and uncover the truth.

There is no charge whatsoever for this as we are simply investigating whether regulatory violations may have occurred. If they do turn out to be true and you suffered financial loss as a result, you may be entitled to an award of damages.
