News of the week.

Morgan Stanley. The review made by Morgan Stanley tells that institutional investors are more and more involved in cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin. However, individual traders and investors are less active nowadays. In opinion of the leading investment bank Bitcoin is a pot of gold for institutional investors.

Bitcoin Cash hardfork. The price of Bitcoin Cash has raised by more than 50% in November. It happens due to fact that the team decided to commit a hardfork, since the team has splitted: one part wants to implement Bitcoin SV, the other – Bitcoin ABC. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that several exchange like Binance and Poloniex will support both coins after the hardfork.

We can see that infrastructure projects have the biggest market share. It happens because the cryptocurrency market is very young and platforms like Bitcoin and Ethereum are becoming more and more outdated, due to small throughput and lack of scalability. So new platforms like EOS, Zilliqa came to market.

On the second place we can see Finance industry, there are different projects like exchanges, that are the main source to get cryptocurrencies now.

After a successful Telegram private sale, that attracted US$ 1.7B led the industry of Communication to the third place.

Trading and Investing took the fourth place. In our opinion it happens due to the fact that there are a lot of enthusiasts at the market, and they decided to entrust their funds to professionals.

The fifth place went to Payments. It is one of the most important implementation of crypto assets, that could boost the capitalization of the cryptocurrency market.

 

3. ICO ROI analysis

ROI is one of the main character of a successful ICO. So here the list of top 10 ICO by ROI from the ICO.

 

3.1 Top 10 ICOs by ROI ever

3.1 1 1024x643 - ICO Market Review Week #43 (22.10.2018 - 28.10.2018)

As we can see, 8 of 10 projects were launched before 2017, the crypto hype year, only Binance and Storj ICOs took place in 2017. However, Binance was launched on a bearish market. We can see a similar picture now, a lot of interesting projects are performing ICO with a view to win a bigger market share.
