initial-coin-offering

  • Ever since Vitalik Buterin and Ethereum settled on Switzerland for its Foundation and Initial Coin Offering (ICO), Switzerland has been popular among blockchain-based businesses and is considered the number one in a list of the top 10 European countries for starting a blockchain company (source cointelegraph.com).

    PwC also found that ICO volume reached new record highs in the first half of 2018 ($13.7 Billion so far), already doubling the volume of the previous year! That inspired me a way to compare at the same time the volume, the categories and amount raised for all these ICO in an interactive and fun way.

    Thanks to D3js library and IcoBench.com the development was done in a new record time! but let me present the results for the most blockchain-friendly countries Switzerland – Russia – Singapore – USA - Estonia - Germany

    You can explore all charts by zoomingpanning and hovering over each bubble. Note that I did only consider ICO which are ended, most countries have a consequent number of ongoing ICO (more than 60 ICO ongoing in Switzerland!).
