    Top 7 ICO's: The Most Loudest In Crypto History

    Best Cryptocurrency ICO ever

    Consistently, a huge number of dollars are put resources into tokens. The significance of this issue expanded after Pavel Durov's TON ICO was really prohibited by an American court. The unsure status of digital currency Libra from Mark Zuckerberg additionally added worry to crypto-financial backers. So was there something like one fruitful ICO?

    Indeed, It was, and not only one. How about we organize these cases in sequential requests.

    1. Mastercoin — 2013

    You could catch wind of this digital currency under the name "Omni". This was the first enrolled ICO (we could consider it the granddad of ICO). On July 31, 2013, an extraordinary asset was made for the venture. Around 500 individuals moved 5,000 BTC into this asset. In 2013, this sum was $ 500 thousand. Without precedent for the historical backdrop of digital currencies, the makers guaranteed any individual who purchases a Mastercoin a chance to utilize it as a venture apparatus. After the dispatch of the framework, the worth of coins should increment, and the holder could sell it uninhibitedly. Was this arrangement executed? Indeed, it was. In under a year, Mastercoin previously positioned seventh in the digital currency market. The renaming of Mastercoin to Omni occurred in 2015. Presently it's difficult a coin, yet a Bitcoin-based stage, on which the one can exchange computerized resources, and furthermore make them.

    2. Ethereum (ETH) — 2014

    One of the prime examples of a successful token placement campaign. In just 12 hours, it raised $2.3 million. And in September 2014 it raised $18.4 million in total.

    This is how it all happened. A unique feature of the platform at that time was the smart contract system. A key feature of Ethereum is to provide a basis for other projects to build and develop their technologies.

    Information about the total number of available tokens was not disclosed, but 60 million tokens were successfully sold. Global fundraising goals were not limited to anything.

    Was the ICO successful and have all the promises been fulfilled? Definitely. To this day, this ICO is considered one of the most successful in history and an example of worthy crowdfunding. Ethereum lives, develops and is second in terms of capitalization after BTC. On its basis, new platforms are being built.

    3. EOS Project (EOS) from block.one — 2017

    This project raised $185 million for the development and implementation of a new blockchain architecture that automates financial processes and evaluates transaction parameters. It helps to create high-quality business applications.

    4. Status (SNT) — 2017

    Another example of brilliant success. This blockchain messenger and mobile operating system (built on Etehreum technologies) were developed to work with decentralized mobile applications. Status raised over $100 million on the first day. Promises are fulfilled, applications work and allow to use encrypted messages, smart contracts, payments, chatbots, and operate with any available ICOs. There's also a built-in currency exchange. The system allows you to store your crypto assets in a special Status wallet.

    5. Bancor (BNT) — 2017

    In 2016-2017 there was a real ICO boom. The Bancor project's shown even faster fundraising than its predecessors. In just 3 hours, $140 million tokens were bought. In total, BNT was sold in the amount of $153 million. Bancor's goal is to increase the liquidity of ERC-20 tokens (Etehereum) and make BNT actually reserve currency. It doesn't require any exchanges and offers its owners an investment basket. Bancor works with smart contracts and allows you to issue your tokens and link any tokens to a plastic card.

    However, you can only call it successful with some limitations. It's restricted in the USA, and there are questions about the tokens that rotate on this platform. However, outside of America, people make BNT transactions, which means that it can’t be called a failure (Gram's also banned in the USA yet).

    6. Tezos (XTZ) — 2017

    For the first 5 days, the Swiss company Tezos raised $137 million through ICO. The total amount of token sale was about $230 million. This placement is rightfully considered one of the most successful in crypto history.

    The project offers a flexible alternative system of smart contracts and is opposed to the Ethereum system on which many companies build their networks.

    7. Filecoin (FIL) — 2017

    In 2014, Protocol Labs launched this system as part of a secure and reliable data storage program based on IPFS protocol (InterPlanetary File System). The regulated ICO of 2017 showed excellent results with the requested $40 million. It was possible to raise $257 million, i.e. almost 6.5 times more.

    After the boom in 2016-2017, there were many successful ICOs, but these seven placements were most memorable.

    There're several useful resources that allow you to get information about the active and upcoming placement of tokens (without investment recommendations) and an archive of past ICOs. These are ICOMARKS and ICODROPS platforms.
