Masterforex-V Analysts name Successful ICOs in May 2018


For those of you who don’t know, an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is all about raising funds. To be more specific, startups sell their underlying crypto tokens in exchange for existing crypto currencies, mostly Bitcoin, Ethereum and other altcoins out there. This resembles an IPO in the stock market where investors buy a newly offered stock.
 
Apparently, an ICO is a relatively new phenomenon. However, ever since coming into existence, it has been winning the hearts and minds of millions of investors all over the world. This has been the dominating topic for discussion in the international blockchain community.
 
Still, for many people out there, ICOs are something like unregulated securities allowing some shady startups to quickly raise tons of money and scam their investors for money while others think that this is clearly an innovation in the conventional venture financing model.
 
Unfortunately, there are cases of fraud among ICOs. For instance, the founder of GO CUBO LODGE CLUB stole the 18 million dollars raised during the ICO while the personnel were left without salaries, not to mentioned the scammed investors. Obviously, this doesn’t mean that all ICOs are potential scams. Fortunately, international regulators start coming into the niche. For instance, the SEC (US) created a precedent and made ICO tokens equal to stocks and other securities, with all the related consequences for the ICO industry. With that being said, the industry is getting more and more mature, secure, and stable, which is definitely good news for all potential ICO investors out there.

Table 2. Dynamics of social network interest in successful ICOs.
 
As you can see, young startups have been promoting mostly through Telegram, TwitterYoutube they have got used to but have been ignoring news feeds like Google.News. Promoting by increasing the amount of mentioning in Google.News is al so a good idea contributing to the overall success of an ICO.
