In late 2017 and early 2018, we observed an ICO frenzy, as the crypto sphere received media exposure towards the masses.
However, because most projects did not provide a sustainable ecosystem in the long term as most of them were focused on a short time easy gain, the majority of ICO investors were disappointed. Because of this, legit projects with a strong vision, team and product, have now a difficult time raising the funds they need to implement their projects.
In 2019, as the crypto market is being regulated and the initial enthusiasm is over, I expect to see educated investors, that carefully select the projects they will support and put their money into.
The rise of security tokens is considered by many a safer investment option, as the legit ICOs that was paused will slowly continue their fund risings.
The use of blockchain technology offers a safe, transparent and safe alternative to existing alternatives and I expect to see more regulations that will encourage the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies and governments implementing their own ICOs and STOs in the near future.
