Initial Coin Offerings keep attracting investment at a rapid pace. Even as governments across the globe introduce restrictions and stipulations regarding ICOs, the entire market has raised almost $9 billion dollars this year alone. The total was less than $4 billion for all of 2017.

Several companies have raised massive amounts of money through ICOs in 2018, but one company is set to shatter records for fundraising. A Cayman Islands start-up known as Block.one is set to see its year-long ICO conclude this week. It is currently on track to raise about $4 billion dollars.

Another ICO from TaTaTu recently said they raised about $575 million through a private token sale. Participants were said to include Prince Felix of Luxembourg and BlockTower Capital. Despite a flurry of criticism about the purported risks associated with ICO investment, a new study seems to suggest risks come with big rewards.

Research from Boston College looked at over 4,000 ICOs that raised about $12 billion dollars. They said an average investor gets a 179% return from the ICO price relative to the first day’s opening market price. The authors said a lot of ICOs are underpriced because many team members are not well-versed in token pricing.

As 2018 reaches the halfway point, many ICOs continue to be released that are legitimate offerings with great potential to impact their respective industries.
