OKEx Exchange announced Wednesday the 11th initial exchange offering (IEO). It will be conducted by the DEAPCOIN Project (DEP) and will be held on April 8th.

As in previous OKEx campaigns, the selection of participants and the selection of the allocation coefficient will be carried out according to two criteria: the average daily balance of OKB and the trading volume on the exchange. For each of the groups, allocation of 400 million DEP tokens is allocated.

The price of 1 DEP on IEO will be $ 0.0025. Thus, the project intends to attract up to $ 2 million from OKEx users. Trading in USDT and USDK pairs will start on the same day.

The DEP token was released by DEAPCOIN to shape the economy around the PlayMining entertainment platform they are developing, where users can earn cryptocurrency during games. DEP is presented as an ERC-20 standard token, while game items on the blockchain will use the ERC-721 standard.

Despite the generally negative dynamics of the IEO space recently, the token of the previous placement of the OKEx platform - HyperDAO - that passed at the end of February is currently trading almost 3 times higher than the initial selling price.
