icos not very successful french report

French Financial regulators have released a report stating that ICOs worldwide have raised more than $21 billion since 2014. AMF or Autorité des Marchés Financiers the French finance regulator stated that most of the amount was raised over the last two years. It also noted the growth of ICO’s and the fact that the funds raised in 2017 contributed to more than 1.5 percent of the worldwide equity financing.

The report also stated that with the passage of time ICO’s fundraisings have only gotten more active. The report also added that the numbers of ICOs increased significantly due to the high price enjoyed by the cryptos over the last year. This resulted in highly successful fundraising rounds, in fact, ICOs in 2018 raised more than 65% of the overall sum raised.

However, most of the growth was enjoyed by only a selected few ICOs as only 17 ICOs raised more than 40 percent of the total amount.
