Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) are on pace for another record year. According to a report by CoinDesk last month, ICOs have already raised more money in the first three months of 2018 than the whole of 2017. While this number includes the now discontinued Telegram ICO, it is clear that even in the face of growing regulation and media scrutiny, ICOs are showing no signs of slowing down.

To keep up with the explosive growth in ICOs, a number of projects and companies have developed full-service platforms to simplify and improve the process of both creating token and conducting a sale.

Here are 5 New ICO Platforms to Watch

CoinLaunch

CoinLaunch is an end-to-end crypto-asset issuance platform that simplifies the process of both creating a token and staging a crowdsale through a number of services. The CoinLaunch platform consists of three major elements: CoinCreator for issuing ERC20 tokens, a DAPP store that offers pre-built decentralized applications designed for easy integration and consulting services that allow teams to expand their roster for a short period with experts who know how to stage a successful ICO.

CoinList

CoinList recently raised $9.2 million in Series A funding to build a platform for digital asset companies to manage their token sales and for investors to discover high-quality projects. So far, CoinList has seen three ICOs launch on its platform, including FilecoinBlockstack and Prop, with a total of $850 million in investments from thousands of users. Currently, CoinList only allows accredited investors to participate in token sales on their platform, meaning at least $200,000 in annual income for an individual, or $1 million in net assets.
