Most anticipated ICOs of 2018
Whilst 2017 will go down as the year when ICO’s and the stories of mouth watering profits came to the attention of the masses, many commentators are now asking themselves if 2018 will provide more of the same.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at four of the most anticipated ICO’s of 2018.
Faceter is a decentralized smart video surveillance system which is claimed to be the first of its kind.
The system can identify individuals through face detection and video analysis, and these features mean that the cameras can adapt to different situations and respond accordingly.
The fact that this computer vision technology is on the blockchain means that the cost will be priced to appeal to smaller businesses and individuals.
The pre ICO for Faceter began on February 28th, 2018
FansUnite is another ICO which is harnessing the power of the Ethereum blockchain.
A big problem for online sports bettors is being able to obtain the odds that are being advertised for the bet they wish to place, as well as being restricted to the amount of money they are able to place on a particular bet.
FansUnite solves this problem and the blockchain technology ensures that security is paramount in terms of financial transactions and personal details.
The ICO for FansUnite will be in 2018 but the exact date has not yet been announced.
This decentralized platform enables consultants to be paid securely for their time on a call without the requirement of a third-party payment processor.
The expert (consultant) decides on their rate per minute and then advertises their services through the profile which they have set up on the Expertly platform.
When someone books the expert through their profile, payment is processed through blockchain smart contracts.
The ICO for Experty was January 25th, 2018
Trippki takes the familiar travel rewards program and turns it on its head by leveraging blockchain technology.
Built on the Ethereum infrastructure, Trippki rewards guests in the form of a crypto token (TRIP) which is easy to redeem and also provides the hotel with a cost-effective way of operating the rewards program.
The TRIP token can be used by guests for future bookings and Trippki will enable hotels to put together future offers for their guests, based on their past experiences.
The project launched in August 2017 with the token sale due to take place in the second quarter of 2018
It should perhaps be pointed out that due to the numerous success stories of ICO’s in 2017, it is understandable that investors and speculators who are new to the game think that they can’t go wrong by getting involved.
There will no doubt be even more success stories in 2018 but individuals who wish to get involved should remember to research any ICO’s thoroughly before they part with any money.
There are some ICO’s which have just been set up to lure in the unwary, make sue that you are not one of them.
