IOST is a unique platform tackling a unique problem thereby creating a marketplace with a centerpiece value – an internet of services ecosystem. This blockchain product creates an infrastructure that provides a scalable insight into decentralized apps and mostly focused on Internet-based products and services.
IOSToken investment is one of those rare opportunities that accompanies great ingenious inventions as the blockchain itself. Without the conventional use of ICO crowd sale like most cryptocurrencies, they have succeeded in convincing the private sponsors that the project is worth investing in, by selling their ideas and technological throughput potentials.
While scalability may be one of the fore problems in the decentralized ecosystem; no doubt, IOST tackles this problem beyond conceptual views and perceptions. However, other insightful use of this asset goes beyond the normal scaling issues as the marketplace being created is unique for its proprietary consensus – the proof-of-believability, built on the BFT foundation.
You can buy IOStoken from a number of markets – about 10 exchange markets have listed the cryptocurrency since its listing in January 2018, and over 20 cumulative trade markets with BTC, ETH and USDT have been created. Maybe not as popular as the top 50 coins, it has fair liquidity and trading volume. But this is still by far better than most cryptocurrencies which have been listed before it.
You can buy it directly with your BTC or alts on any of the exchange markets that have listed the coin. The easiest way to store your new asset will be for you to send it to your ERC-20 compatible wallet like MEW or if you have any of the hardware wallets like Trezor or Ledger Nano, it could be a lot safer there. However, you must understand the risk of leaving exchanges in charge of your private key – thereby giving them access to your asset.
