Token Sales: Q1 2018

Token Sales: Q1 2018

The state of the token sale market as of 31-March-2018

The figures below were sourced via the Elementus Protocol, an expert system that extracts and interprets transaction data directly from the blockchain (full methodology). In contrast, most token sale statistics available online rely strictly on third-party reported amounts, which may be outdated and in most cases will exclude projects that do not report their fundraising.

As a result, the fundraising stats shown on this page are more accurate and complete than any other estimates we are aware of. And the aggregate totals are substantially larger.

Over $23 billion has been raised to date via token sales

Fundraising amounts were converted into USD at the prevailing cryptocurrency exchange rate at the time the sale closed. Contributions to the EOS ICO, which has been ongoing since June, 2017, were converted daily at the ETH-USD exchange rate.

Funds raised through token-convertible securities were sourced from SEC filings and the Petro figures are as reported by Venezuelan president Nicholas Maduro.
