This years turbulences in the crypto world might create some anxiety regarding the ICOs fate in general. But in fact, this June they almost surpassed the total value of all the Initial Coin Offerings in 2017 [according to Coinschedule].

We can say that even with the crypto fall at the beginning of 2018, the boom in cryptocurrencies has helped ICOs by increasing the number of investors and lowering the friction in this way of crowdfunding.

ICOs are growing up – and the number of STOs increases

The 2018 was an important year for cryptocurrencies due to regulations. Half a year ago we wrote, that the legal issues might be one of the biggest ICO challenges.

Security Token Offerings are on the rise, as a way to comply with the new regulations.

The best time to develop and launch ICO

Ultimately, the best time to launch an ICO is when you are ready and sure about the safety and value proposition of your project. All the rest is less important.

But taking it into perspective the right time of year and the fine tuning of your ICO to get the best results, we’d suggest to avoid the dog days of summer – as the lowest point of the year in fundraising.
