Hi guys, sharing this article with you as I think this is important for us as crypto users.
Whole weriteup can be seen in this link:  https://www.investing.com/analysis/whats-behind-the-lower-number-of-icos-200299877


> Number of initial coin offerings (ICOs) expected to fall in March 2018
> U.S. regulation around ICOs is hazy and a number of projects are under investigation
> ICOs failing because of rampant phishing and online scams
> Added scrutiny, better data could drive the next wave of token offerings

Last week I attended one of the world's largest digital asset events, Token2049 in Hong Kong. Crypto enthusiasts from all over Asia as well as other parts of the world were there to discuss digital assets and blockchain-based tokens and technology. As well, there were a lot of people talking about Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), the cryptocurrency world's version of equity markets' Initial Public Offering (IPO). To say the number of people talking about launching initial coin offerings was overwhelming is an understatement.

According to a report issued by VC firm FabricVentures and TokenData, based on their metrics, more than $5.6 billion was raised in 2017. "This compares to $1 billion of 'traditional' venture investing in blockchain startups in the same timeframe and a 'mere' $240 million dollars raised by tokens sales in 2016," the report goes on to say.

ICOs have been raising billions of dollars in capital by selling digital assets. But recently these still-unregulated events have become the focus of increased scrutiny. At an MIT-sponsored Bitcoin Expo on Saturday March 17, one of the speakers, Christian Catalini, claimed, “40% to 50% of ICOs are currently underwater – trading at a price lower than the initial offering price.”

As reported by news.Bitcoin.com, although a staggering amount of capital has been flowing into ICOs, statistics for 2018 show that of the 74 offerings completed so far this year, around 76% will end up in the red. Why are so many ICOs trading at a loss, or worse, failing? Some blame the sluggish recent performance of such high profile tokens as Bitcoin and Ethereum....

Blaming bitcoin or ethereum for why this happened right now is very cheap, the reason most icos go down in value and are not growing is very simple, most icos are not worth your investment and are just scams, copied projects or simply bad projects with no value at all, it is completely unfair to blame bitcoin or any other coin for what is happening right now, I'm pretty sure that when the price of all the coins in the market were going up they were not blaming bitcoin for that they were probably saying that all of that was because of them and if that was the case then I do not see how they can excuse themselves with such a lie.

Definetly there are so many reason why some of ICO now is falling in the crypto world because of so many circumstances,first mostly some the project now is disame  thought and ideas, and market would loose interest of disame project,thats why some other scamming ICO now is easy to copied the ideas,and make there own.Second is reason is the implementation of china to ban the foreign developers  in there country,thats why mostly ICO now is coming from US is needed of kyc,and make us hazy  to join this kind of investment because investor need only a simple way to claim there investment and make there personality still anonymous.,and lastly there are many ICO came out  now in the market is ponzi,thats why investor would carefull to invest there asset,because they dont want loosing there capital.thats why blaming the dropping of all coins is  not the main reason of drowning off all ICO  investment in crypto world.

Well it could be that social media's such as Facebook, Google and Twitter has banned ICO advertisement so I'm sure it has a negative effect that's why there is a drop-off on ICO.

Or investors has really learnt their lessons very well from past ICO wherein they just literally runs with millions of dollars of investors money and disappear in the face of the earth.
