The EOS ICO is about to make ICO record history. The year-long ICO is set to finish tomorrow with $4 billion invested in the project.
Block.one, the company launching EOS, raised capital for their blockchain project by auctioning off the EOS tokens. For the past year, every 23 hours, two million EOS tokens were auctioned to the highest bidder. Since this process began on June 26th, 2017, over 900 million tokens have been sold.
EOS is currently the fifth largest cryptocurrency, with a market cap of $10.6 billion. The EOS mainnet launch is set for June 2nd, only three days away now.
What’s the EOS ICO investment money going to be used for? Well, at least $1 billion of it will be reinvested by Block.one into startups building on the EOS blockchain once it fully launches.
As for the remaining $3 billion, it’s still unclear what the money is going to be used for. No public announcement has yet to be made. However, the EOS team looks to be expanding, so perhaps some of the money will be used to hire the best. Until EOS confirms, though, we can only guess.
