Shirley Yu, OKNodes Korea Business Manager spoke at the BeFull Community event and brought up new perspectives. She highlighted that in OK, they are very concern and kept themselves updated daily. Their research department is one of the most savvy in the industry, sharing knowledge to their users, members and partners weekly.
During the event, Shirley also mentioned that OK took a while to decide if they want to start IEO on their platform but eventually they listen to the market demand and started it. Their success can be seen at their recent and first IEO with BlockCloud. Blockcloud is a blockchain-based TCP/IP architecture, where TCP/IP is a suite of communication protocols used to interconnect network devices on the internet. All the tokens were bought up in 1 second. The exchange rate for this sale was announced to be 1 OKB = 400 BLOC, with the price of OKB being around USD 2. The total supply for the session was announced to be 500 million BLOC tokens, which would mean that the team raised USD 2.5 million. This sets a new record in the IEO scene. From this success, we see that there have a bigger following within their community and this is a good sign for the blockchain market.
