They believe that new rules for Huobi Prime will increase the number of successful transactions in the rush that accompanied the tokensale.

The next IEO is scheduled for April 16th.

The first IEO at the Huobi Prime site from the TOR Network project took place on March 26. All three rounds were completed in a few seconds, which caused widespread dissatisfaction among users who failed to take part in the campaign. 

Bitfinex Shareholder to Start Pre-Orders for IEO

It should be noted there's no official whitepaper for the token and the fact of IEO wasn't confirmed by the operator of trading platform

The Chinese platform RenRenBit, which is an intermediary between cryptocurrency lenders and borrowers, has begun to accept preliminary applications for participation in the public stage of IEO of the Bitcoin exchange Bitfinex. RenRenBit is part of the DGroup company, which is owned by a major Bitfinex shareholder, Zhao Dong, CoinDesk reports.

Note that the operator of the trading platform iFinex Inc. has not yet published the official white paper for its token, and has not even confirmed the fact of IEO itself. Dong is the main source of information on tokensale for $ 1 billion and it was he who distributed the marketing documentation of the LEO token through Weibo, although some top managers from Bitfinex have already mentioned the coin on Twitter.

Retail investors who have undergone a KYC procedure can already commit to invest up to $ 1,000 in USDT equivalent at the IEO's public stage. However, according to the mentioned marketing documentation, if the tokens are sold out to accredited investors by May 10, the tokensale will end in a closed format. As of May 4, the exchange allegedly received a verbal commitment of $ 600 million.

It is worth adding that the fake white paper of Bitfinex token has already appeared on the web, whose authors use the uncertainty around the alleged campaign and the lack of official statements to mislead gullible users. The official white paper has not been released.

CoinMarketCap, a popular analytical resource, meanwhile, excluded Bitfinex quotes from calculations of the average value of digital assets, since they significantly exceed those of other trading platforms.

Earlier, New York State Attorney General Letitia James asked the state Supreme Court to uphold the order for Bitfinex, which does not allow her to renew the credit line from Tether Limited. She warned the court about the high risks for users of the platform and USDT holders.

However, a week ago, Tether Limited's chief lawyer Stuart Hogner stressed that there are no risks for users, although steylcoin is secured only by 74%.

So, Bitfinex could already receive about $ 750 million from the USDT issuer's reserves to ensure liquidity after the fiat funds of the exchange's operator were blocked in the accounts of the Panamanian processing Crypto Capital Corp. in Poland, Portugal, the UK and the USA.
