In 2017 ICOs around the world managed to register an impressive growth, reaching $5.6 billion around the globe. Starting back in 2015, the trend seemed to become unstoppable as they continue to grow. But the appearance of several new ICOs leads to a harsh completion as the offer is dramatically above the demand, at least for now.
With every new ICO, the other one loses valuable investors, and the negative trend seems to continue. It would seem that the trend will slow down and stagnate until de end of the year. Several motives may have caused the downfall.
The cryptocurrency market took a big hit when Bitcoin, its poster child, fell down to $6000 dollars after it reached over $20000 earlier.
Some countries may impose restricting regulations, and potential investors seem discouraged.
The high number of ICOs spreads investment funds thin and the growth cannot be focused.
Many ICOs can still be affected by security breaches and malicious attacks.
You should not avoid ICOs since they can still provide valuable opportunities. Two things are critical when you think about ICOs:
Transparency: You should always check to verify that all procedures are completely transparent. The number of fraudulent projects has significantly decreased but you should be careful.
Here are the best ICOs in which you can invest right now:
