Despite selling out in less than three hours, CoinList’s second attempt at hosting NEAR’s final tokensale saw the platform struggle as investors rushed to participate.
CoinList’s second attempt in 24 hours at hosting NEAR’s final token sale saw the exchange once again buckle under a flood of traffic from prospective investors.
NEAR’s final sale before mainnet was originally planned for August 11, however, the token sale was abruptly postponed by 24 hours after investors were left clicking refresh and filling out captchas for 90 minutes while unable to participate in the offering.
Despite CoinList reassuring users that the platform would be scaled to handle the surge in traffic, many investors today again found themselves clicking refresh for nearly two hours while waiting to access CoinList.
Despite CoinList’s near-disastrous performance throughout the sale, NEAR sold out of 100 million tokens worth nearly $30 million within less than three hours of the sale’s commencement.
