The ICO market in 2019 is really different to 2017 or 2018. This industry is continuously changing and evolving to get the investor's attention. The most of ICO projects born in 2018 have negative ROI. The second half of 2018 and 2019 have been really hard times to get funding, private or public. Some trends have been growing for the last months. First, it was the Masternodes and POS projects. The perspective of passive incomes without the need of expensive mining machines and high electric bills has attracted many enthusiasts to it. This trend also has motivated to scammers and fake projects joining the Masternodes sphere. They have damaged the image of it, making difficult to find the right projects, but with the correct research, you will find some good investments waiting for you. The last trend is obvious for everybody, the IEO’s. A lot of people think the IEO’s started with Binance Launchpad, but it is not right. A few exchanges offered IEO’s since December 2018, but the hype came with Binance. The recovery of the market and the incredible amounts of funds raised in minutes has unleashed the form. IEO’s are controversial, it is really not a different model than ICO’s, but it has a few advantages. Since a public investor’s perspective, they get automatic and quick listing for his ICO investments in the same platform where they purchased the tokens. All the process is reduced to weeks, against the months or more time required for your ICO investments in the past. But the danger of getting rekt is still there. The IEO’s system doesn’t guarantee the success, it just makes the process easier. Every investor has to do his own research with every project in order to decrease his own risk. Any case, as always, the best advice I can give you is, DYOR.
