More than $1.5 billion and counting…

Call them token sales or initial coin offerings (ICOs), the funding method has quickly emerged as the de-facto way for blockchain projects to raise capital – one that is dominating headlines, as well as a growing portion of CoinDesk’s editorial coverage and quarterly “State of Blockchain” report.

And it’s easy to see why: ICOs are now contributing significantly more funding to the blockchain ecosystem than traditional venture capital, not to mention skyrocketing in terms of deal volume and size. The landscape is also quickly evolving in terms of deal structures, platform use, perceived legality, investor interest, and more – all leading to a boom in the amount of new data available for analysis.

In response, CoinDesk is again launching a new online resource: the CoinDesk ICO Tracker. This informative new tool provides a rigorously maintained data source that tracks the global ICO movement, offering both full data access and charting tools that help add context and clarity to the phenomenon.

Using the CoinDesk ICO Tracker, users can at a glance monitor cumulative ICO funding, month-over-month increases in sector spending and find new projects.

Further, our full downloadable ICO database offers even more extensive details, tracking the terms of ICO deals and providing more granularity for analysts and investors.
