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.
But which have been the most important ICOs in the market the first quarter of 2018? Let’s check them.
Zilliqa is the first public blockchain that aims to implement sharding so as to linearly scale the network as it grows in size. And the ICO has been very successful, it was able to provide its investors with an amazing 36.81 times return in USD. Compared to others, the ROI registered by this ICO has no comparison.
Zilliqa changes the way in which the blockchain reaches consensus. The sharding solution scales with the size of the network, meaning that it will be difficult to saturate the network. It may be able to process even millions of transactions per second in the best scenario.
The second most profitable ICO has been TomoCoin (TOMO), with a 7.18 ROI during the first quarter of 2018. TomoCoin is the cryptocurrency that will work on the Tomo application, and will be used on the Tomochain infrastructure.
In terms of BTC the ROI is even bigger, 8.16 times. In a similar situation to the next ICOs, but far from Zilliqa, that registered 60.89 ROI in BTC.
Zebi (ZCO) is an organization that specializes in providing blockchain based solutions to governments and enterprises to leverage and protect their high value and sensitive data. At the moment, the company is one of the few enterprise grade product companies based in India offering the best of the Silicon Valley at Indian prices.
The ICO was able to be the third most profitable during the first quarter of 2018. Investors obtained a 5.73 ROI in dollars, 7.19 ROI in BTC, and 6.66 ROI in Ethereum. Interestingly, it was not able to hold the third position in ETH ROI, losing against another ICO known as Bluzelle that registered a 7.89 ROI.
Ontology is another important ICO that had important returns for investors. It is a blockchain network that combines distributed identity verification, data exchange, data collaboration, procedure protocols, and other features.
Since the ICO started, Ontology had very high returns, 30.8 times in dollars, and 67.82 times in BTC. At the moment, the ONT cryptocurrency has a market capitalization of $758 million dollars, each coin can be traded over $6.16 dollars and it reached an all time high of $10 USD.
