in cryptocurrency •  2 years ago 

As of today (11.09.2017) 139 Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) have been conducted in 2017. All combined managed to raise more than USD 2 billion. This already makes 2017 the most successful year for ICOs. For comparison in 2016 ICOs managed to raise just under USD 100 million . You would think $2 billion is a lot of money? Here is an interesting fact - In 2016 IPOs worldwide managed to raise USD 132.5 billion! Last years highest ICO was WAVES which managed to gather around $16 million. Here are the top 5 ICOs for 2017: 

  1. Filecoin - $257,000,000
  2. Tezos - $232,000,000
  3. EOS first stage - $185,000,000
  4. Bancor - $153,000,000
  5. Status - $90,000,000

Filecoin is officially the all time highest ICO in the crypto sphere with its $257 million. For comparison the all time highest IPO is Alibaba with $25 billion from 2014. ICOs need to do some catching up.

Interesting article. Good to see I'm not the only one that is thinking about this. It's facinating how people invest 10's of millions of dollars in "just an idea". This is quite an interesting website I found: https://www.coincheckup.com This site is really helpful in my coin research. I don't know any other sites with so much indepth analysis.
