The top 15 ICOs in terms of funds raised….and ROI

The ICO craze of 2017 was just that…crazy. We saw projects raise tens of millions of dollars in seconds, sometimes hundreds of millions in under an hour. This year we saw the first Billion dollar raises come from EOS and Telegram. EOS did this before they even had a functioning product and ran their public ICO for over a year, while Telegram reached their goal mostly through private sales to accredited investors and institutions. Regardless of which method they chose, these companies want to get your money, and as investors the only thing that should matter is return on investment (ROI).

Below we can take a look at the top 15 biggest ICOs in terms of funds raised, the type of project they are and what ROI they have given investors up to this point.

visual from @ico_analytics. *Tezos price has been extremely volatile lately so ROI may differ.

From looking at this chart we can see that relative to smaller ICOs, large fundraising sums hasn’t necessarily correlated with great returns. Don’t get me wrong, even these ROIs make the risk/reward heavily weighted towards reward, you can only lose 100%, but make many multiples of that. That said, it will be interesting to see how these tokens and protocol coins hold up over time if the liquidity crunch continues in the crypto markets. Stay safe out there.

EOS BPs heavily controlled by exchanges (2 from Huobi) and other potential issues

EOS has recently come under fire recently from critics arguing that they could be leaving exchanges vulnerable to hacks as well as for their consensus protocol and Network constitution. Adding to our recent series of posts on EOS, Nic Carter did a quick recap of the current 21 EOS block producers filtering them by organization, % of stake, affiliation with any cryptocurrency institution, geographical legal jurisdiction and any miscellaneous note that could prove relevant. This could prove useful to keep track of centralization in terms of consensus and governance for this new project.

As you can see from looking that the BPs, they seem heavily weighted towards China (29%) with a lot of exchange influence (Huobi figuring prominently with 2 BPs). Another issue is that EOS Dac conducted an airdrop which could be misconstrued as a form of bribe to voters as well as 1 completely unknown BP, Zbeosbp11111.

How much do Crypto Exchanges make in revenue *every single day? Graphic

Great graphic from showing the top crypto exchanges in terms of revenue.

Talk about printing money. Forget shitcoin trading, investing in an exchange was the best move to make during this cryptocurrency craze. Binance, only one year after its launch, is generating $3.5 million in revenue…PER DAY!!! Not sure you could even print money that fast. Coming in second is Korean exchange UPbit with $3.42 million per day. Rounding out the top 5 are Huobi, Bittrex (yup, even with all the declining volume) and Bithumb. And last but not least, Poloniex with $0.07 million per day. Things sure do change fast in the cryptosphere. A year ago Poloniex was top dog, dominating altcoin trading, and not 12 months later has fallen 20 spots.
