    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.
