It’s that time of the year again, it comes around fast, doesn’t it? It’s precisely three months since I published the Q1 edition for the 7 Golden ICO’s to shine on Hackernoon. I had no idea at the time of writing, how far and wide the content could potentially reach. The stats for the article blew me away. It has received over 220k views to date and was ranked in the number one spot on Google when investors searched for the best ICO’s. So firstly, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who viewed, clapped, shared and commented on the article.
Ethereum is a framework, of distributed computing platform based on the idea of blockchains. Based on a decentralized network of nodes, this construction allows for all kinds of transactions to be computed and verified around the world. The network becomes a programmable entity that provides a blockchain for keeping track of and verifying all kinds of objects, individuals, and agreements. An internal currency, Ether, allows for compensation of device owners who participate in the network by contributing compute power and bandwidth. Ethereum promises to be a sort of hivemind upon which all kinds of trade and organization can securely take place. We make it easy to discover Ethereum ICOs.
Rentberry is a decentralized long-term rental platform that has been disrupting the rental industry since 2015.

This saves the tenant and landlord time and money while expediting the legal agreements between parties. Moreover, Rentberry’s blockchain and smart contracts technology offer tenants the ability to save thousands of dollars in rental security deposits.
One of the most important things in any development project is the expertise and commitment level of the team. We recommend only investing in ICOs that work transparently by introducing their team and their skills. Even though many great projects such as Bitcoin have emerged from anonymous teams, the risk of an exit scam in an ICO with an anonymous team has actualized so many times during the recent year that for example, we will not be listing any projects that are not revealing at least their project management team. The presented team should have relevant study or work experience, good networks, colleague or client endorsements and they should indicate a clear commitment to the presented ICO project. The whole team should have diverse skills represented, and a decent size for project implementation.
It’s refreshing to see someone break the mold every once in a while. Some companies and teams take lightly the notion of a community when they launch their ICOs. A few engage and communicate with their investors. But after getting some bad mouth about their inner practices, with an ex-partner claiming Cointed had taken credit for their products, the team took the time and effort to launch a full transparency report. A rare but fine treat, it goes to show their team is serious and willing to keep their base. They might have just turned a bad thing into an opportunity to shine. This also sets them further apart from traditional financial institutions, which are not the most popular right now.
At the end of the year 2017, the total volume of ICO investments in the US market was estimated at more than $4 billion according to the Bloomberg agency report and Autonomous Research LLP data. A lot of blockchain industry experts believe, that 2018 will see an even more significant rise of ICO’s quantity and crypto market growth – the overall market value is expected to make a breakthrough and surpass trillion dollars. The new technological revolution is near.
Before investing in any ICO, it is important to perform significant due diligence. One good way to conduct this research is by checking our initial coin offerings page, where you will find information about such offerings.
By providing a cryptocurrency for buying and selling services within the Webhits.io platform, Webcoin will offer the least expensive P2P network available, at the same time guaranteeing monetary payback on the web and social media engagement services.
Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) have attracted the attention of several investors in 2017. But 2018 seems to be a great year for these crowdfunding methods. The last year, they were able to gather almost $4 billion dollars, but this year, the number has grown exponentially.
In the trailer for The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin, the 2014 film selected at the Tribeca Film Festival, one of the leading experts in the field says that regulations can not keep up with the pace of innovation. Many see cryptocurrencies as the next gold rush, each for different reasons.

In my opinion, it’s a colossal pump-and-dump scheme, the likes of which the world has never seen. In a pump-and-dump game, promoters “pump” up the price of a security creating a speculative frenzy, then “dump” some of their holdings at artificially high prices. And some cryptocurrencies are pure frauds. Ernst & Young estimates that 10 percent of the money raised for initial coin offerings has been stolen.
Real world assets such as stocks, patents, bonds and real estate hardly offer you the kind of liquidity or well-network that an altcoin can offer. TrustToken, a new startup based in Stanford, California, offers users across the world the ability to turn any real-world asset of their choosing into a cryptocurrency token of its own. This would allow anyone to create liquidity and fractional ownership for any asset and provide insurance and audits for their token-holders. The startup has already been used to create the world’s first tokenized song and has now turned its attention to the rest of the world’s $256 trillion worth of real-world assets. So go check it out, will you?.
Because of the last three months of bearish trends, there have been very few ICOs that have been a good investment against fiat. On ICOs that have launched this year, I have looked at the numbers and it’s somewhere around or under 5% that is above ICO price in terms of fiat. Credits, matrix AI, and I know only a handful of others can claim this. If you are from the United States I would stay out of ICOs at least for the near future and if you really like a project wait for its price to come out on the index, many are dumping. If you aren’t from the United States the only one I have found recently that might be worth the investment coming up is pchain. Definitely research that project though. Checkout matrix AI as well it is fairly new and available on index.
This will be part of a larger trend for blockchain networks to specialize. Current systems try to be everything to everybody. In the future, we’ll see more targeted implementations designed for a clear use case. The best way to explain why this is necessary is to point to the Yahoo example — a tech giant that spread itself thin across too many products and services, and couldn’t be truly successful in any of them.
