Masterforex-V Experts Name Most Successful ICOs in April 2018


Blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and all the related infrastructure have broken into our lives and have been dominating international headlines ever since. Despite the fact the technology is still in its infancy, many people all around the globe have been trying to make money by investing in related projects.
 
Why are ICOs so popular among international investors?
 
It necessary to mention the fact that an ICO (buying tokens, coins etc.) is not the only viable option to make money by investing in blockchain-based projects. On top of that, you can make money the following ways:
- buying and selling cryptocurrencies
- mining coins
- trading
- participating in various affiliate programs
 
By the way, for those of you who don’t know, an ICO stands for an Initial Coin Offering, which makes it comparable to an IPO (an Initial Public Offering in the stock market).
Basically, during the ICO, the company offers its tokens, which is the crypto version of the company’s stock. This happens through adding all the required info (the description, the amount, and the ID) to the corresponding blockchain.
 
Experts name 3 strengths of an ICO that make it so popular among international investors:
 
- These are very cheap and affordable assets without credits, margins, bails, bonds, and other related things. So, ICOs and ITOs are way cheaper then IPOs, which is a lifesaver for small-scale and mid-scale businesses.
- There is the absence of a great deal of bureaucracy with filling out endless forms, applications, agreements, passing interviews with bankers and investors, and so much more. With that being said, ICOs are much easier to arrange and implement.
- This is a hi-tech event. After making a smart contract, crediting bonuses, profits, products, and pretty much everything else is done in automated mode.
 
The most successful ICO to date is ICO EOS (developing the software to decentralize apps). Over the first 5 days of the ICO, they managed to collect 651 902 Ether ($170 million at that point). Today’s market cap as around $11 billion.
 
The second-most successful ICO to date is ICO Storj (developing next-generation decentralized data storage). The expected sum of $30 million was collected in less than a week. Today’s market cap as around $162 million.
 
On the other hand, the fastest ICO to date is the ICO for Brave, a next-generation browser by the FireFox team. They managed to collect $35 million over the first 30 seconds!
 
However, arranging an ICO to collect several hundred thousand dollars is a heavy burden for most small businesses out there. However, there is a solution for them. It’s called a pre-ICO. It allows such businesses to start collecting investments by selling tokens at a discount before the actual ICO. At the same time, such businesses may use the pre-ICO to get themselves up and running with the process and simultaneously check the potential interest in their offers.
 

 

Masterforex-V Academy experts have come up with the list of the most successful ICOs in April 2018
