Following an underwhelming H2 2018 for the Blockchain and crypto market, 2019 has sparked renewed interest because of — a new blockchain-based investment vehicle dubbed IEOs, better jurisdictional clarification of digital assets, and also the entry of established enterprises like Facebook and JPMorgan.

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, Bitcoin, has regained more than 200% of its spot trading price and overall the market has gained more than 155%, signalling the end of the metaphorical ‘crypto winter’ — Perhaps, Spring wasn’t that far behind!

Here are the Key Takeaways from the report -

  • The jurisdiction with the maximum number of token offerings during H1 2019 was the US with a whopping 66 projects, closely followed by Singapore, UK, China, and Estonia.

  • The number of IEO projects have shot up, while the number of ICOs have sharply declined. The ‘highlight’ project during H1 2019 was Bitfinex’s IEO (LEO) which raised a whopping $1 billion. On the other hand, STOs have grown at a modest 12% while the funds raised by these STO projects reached $419 million.

Despite the crypto winter being over why are professional investors showing lacklustre interest? A plausible reason could be the current technological limitations of existing Blockchain technology which has still yet to provide scalable enterprise solutions.
