Despite some regulatory uncertainties and cautiousness, the ICO space is developing at a rapid pace. ICOs are just one application of the token-based models that blockchains enable.

How do you keep track of the various ICOs that are being planned and launched?

A flurry of websites and businesses are emerging to track, analyze, manage, and offer services to help market, plan, develop or launch ICOs.

I recently went on a hunt to gather the various resources that list them. The result offers an eye-opening expedition into this burgeoning phenomenon.

Here’s my ultimate list of websites with ICO resources (in alphabetical order).

Partial list of ICO projects.

Lists ICO crowdsales according to five factors: white paper, roadmap. team, escrow, ICO conditions.

TokenMarket is a marketplace for tokens, digital assets and blockchain based investing. Users can research and invest in tokenized assets, or launch a crowdsale for a project.

Hosts discussions of active and upcoming ICO/crowdsales, and is building a due diligence community.

Maintains a curated list of ongoing and upcoming cryptocurrency ICOs, token sales, and crowdsales. Projects are evaluated for listing using multiple criteria, but in general, they list ICOs that should raise the equivalent of $30,000 or are unique in some way.

Update: Additional resources include Token Investor, Github's Ultimate ICO Calendar, ICO Bazaar and Week in Ethereum.
