What is ICO in 2018 like
In 2018 ICOs had already collected $2 billion, 84% of which was raised on pre-sales and private rounds. Compared to the last year’s $5,7 billion, the number is progressively growing.
Although ICO was supposed to be the most democratic money fundraising, restudies show that public round investors don’t get much, while that 1% of private pre-sale buyers get the bulk of the good. The host of Cryptotrader show on CNBC and one of the most influential block-chain insiders according to Richtopia Ran NeuNer shared on his Twitter a collective ironical scheme of an ICO pre-sales launched in 2018. The list of rounds includes even a «Friends and family» one, and the discounts listed range from 40% to 95%.
