Taking A Look at The Top 3 ICOs by ROI

Taking A Look at The Top 3 ICOs by ROI - Smart Investing

There is a lot of talk about how 2018 was the death of traditional ICO investors that were burnt by investing in sloppy businesses and outright scams. That doesn't mean that businesses with bad fundamentals and strong teams weren't available before, far from it. Though as many as 50% of ICOs have failed two years on from the ICO frenzy that was 2017, a select number have not only survived but have brought early investors a massive Return-On-Investment (ROI).

How is ROI calculated, exactly? Well, it's a pretty easy mathematical calculation where you take how much your investment is worth right now (let's say $200), subtract how much you invested initially (this figure will be $100 for example's sake), and then divide the result by the cost of the investment.

The ROI will be a normal number, and you simply multiply it by 100 to get a percentage. In the above case, we get 1 as the answer, so we have a 100% ROI for the investment we (theoretically) made. This article will give you the top ICOs from an ROI perspective, though they will not necessarily be the most successful ICOs. More funding doesn't guarantee success; it just helps it along. The idea and team behind the ICO are just as important, as is timing and adoption. Adoption is not just buying into an ICO, but also using it.

All figures are taken from CoinMarketCap and

Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum is blockchain technology and cryptocurrency that is almost as popular and well-known as Bitcoin. It hit an all-time high price of $1377.72 when the ROI was probably far greater than it currently is. However, despite the massive fall from grace, it is still the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap, and it is set to stay there. Ethereum came in with the right idea, at the right time, and used the money it had gained phenomenally well. Then again, it was before the ICO craze of 2017, and no one is surprised that such an early entrant managed to do so well, particularly with the ideas and people behind the project.

It is definitely the top spot and deservedly so.

Spectrecoin (XSPEC)

Proof perfect that an ICO does not need to be successful to provide an amazing ROI. Spectrecoin is a protocol that is extremely privacy-focused and uses a variety of technologies that assert this singular fact. It is also based on proof-of-stake, which is still not 100% legitimate as evidenced by the burden of Ethereum trying to move to Proof-of-Stake algorithms. However, it doesn't need to be popular or successful and is one of those rare coins where an idea can be an extremely strong motivator for certain investors. The community is active in developing the coin, but it could just as quickly drop into oblivion if they do not come up with the goods in the near future.

Binance Coin

Binance is perhaps the best example of a good ICO. The ICO period ended at around the same time that the ICO hype was building to a fever pitch and with a solid business idea, a strong team to move it forward, and smart developers on hand to implement those ideas, it has soared.

Binance as a whole is currently flying high, and with the release of its Singapore based DEX, its own blockchain and the amazing services it offers is proof of just how important it is to look at the underlying business aspect of a coin before investing.
