I'd like some input as to what you guys think make the list of a "successful" ICO. And by "successful," I don't mean how much money the devs made, I don't mean that the price is currently at the moon, I mean "successful" as in they have been provably beneficial to their investors and to the society as a whole.

Here's a few I've got going so far, please feel free to add to the list or make an argument as to why one of them should be removed. And they don't have to be coins per se but simply blockchain-based projects that aim not just to make money but to contribute positively to society in general.

(in no particular order)

Ethereum
NXT
BitShares
NEM
NEO (AntShares)
DASH
Storj

Thanks. Please, save your FUD or shills for a different thread. I'm looking for ACTUALLY successful ICOs, where the fundraising period has ended long ago and now they have proven themselves as legit through the test of time.

Democratizing Global Trade - ICO NOW LIVE

Well if you look at lisk it's still going strong and its ICO raised around 14k BTC. It is essentially the counterpart of ethereum except in Javascript. Pretty sure that Waves had an ICO as well and has proven itself so far.

If you consider IOTA to be legit right now, which i think it is after around 2 months of watching it, then its ICO brought much profit to investors as well.

Plenty out there, just gotta research.

hey thanks this is the exact idea of what I was looking for. however, it just loads and loads and loads and never shows anything but a green screen. However i am in a very rural part of the world right now so perhaps I'll try it again when there's better WiFi. Thanks again.

Today they say the best ICO have the so-called Bounty programs. It means when you register, you get free tokens for it. I have seen they offer from 50 to 1000 free tokens, however, the last proposition resembles scam a bit.

Probably I am wrong. Geens, BitBase, PlusCoin offer these possibilities, for example.

I think EOS will be the most successful in terms of raised amount of funds.

Ethereum was probably the most successful coin in that list. Almost every coin that has an ICO is using ETH.

Stratis seems to be the only one that I missed... WAVES is good in theory but buggy in reality.

This is the most helpful link I've seen thus far:

https://icowatchlist.com/finished/best-returns

This is exactly what I don't care about:

I think EOS will be the most successful in terms of raised amount of funds.

And the winner is... by a whopping 350,000% gain since ICO, NXT! It beat out Ethereum by nearly 250,000% (thus far). Man, that's such a shoulda/woulda scenario for me. Same goes for NEM. I honestly didn't think Ethereum would be a real thing since it took them so damn long to release their product. Here's the Top 8 for everybody's reference. Though I really only count those that started in 2015 or before, since I think a "standing the test of time" aspect is important when considering whether something is truly successful or not.

I mean QTUM and Gnosis hasn't been up for that long of a time but they both have pretty big ICOs at least in terms of total value raised through the ICOs that they have conducted previously in the crowdfunding stage.

Omni is still hosting Tether which is the biggest pegged coin right now, as well as maidsafecoin which is one of the biggest blockchain projects to date. They did a ICO as well though not raising that much in fiat terms, they did raise around 5k BTC.

Again, knowing how much money an ICO raised is NOT an indicator of how successful it is/was/will be.

I point to you:

- The DAO
- Bancor
- Tezos
- EOS

The 'success' you're talking about still depends on what the intended purpose of the project is. Lisk is actually a great project, I think the problem is if people/developers would want to create their own coin, the default decision is ethereum.
The golem project I remember is also a good one, it is being used for its intended purpose like big data analysis. It's like an Airbnb for computers.

Why are you considering Ethereum and NEO as an ICO? They are both individual protocols that run on the blockchain, just like bitcoin, so they should be considered alts and not ICO or tokens. An ICO normally runs inside protocols that provide smart contracts or similar things. We normally associate ICOs to Ethereum, although there are more altcoins out there (like NEO), that provide ways to create ICOs that have their own tokens.

Maybe I have this wrong, but I really think there is a big difference between alts and ICOs, so if you want to create a list of ICOs (Pundi, ArtToken, Enjin coin, etc), then you shouldn't mix them with alts. As for your question, I like those ICOs I've mentioned, and I also like filecoin and crypto card ICOs (like TenX, Centra and Monaco). They all provide good products with real use, and that's why I consider them successful.

Because NEO(antshares) and ETH both had an ICO.

ICO means initial coin offering. It can be anything. Ethereum held an ICO before their platform got boosted by so many investors that drove up the price. All the ones that you've listed are indeed ICOs, they're just ongoing. ETH's ICO has ended long ago with great profits for investors.

OP, it's surprising to see NXT on top of the list. However for all the projects you mentioned, it's still too early to judge especially EOS and Bancor imho.
