- The quarterly ICOR report for the third quarter of 2018 was released
ICORating, a popular first coin offering the data aggregation site, has released its quarterly report on brands for the third quarter of 2018.
The report traditionally analyzes trends and the latest developments in ICO markets and there are some interesting data to show this time, highlighting a stagnation in the ICO sector compared to previous periods.
According to the report, 597 ICO projects were organized in the third quarter (compared to 827 ICOs set up in the second quarter); of these, 43% were able to raise more than $ 100,000 and only 4% could be quoted on the stock exchange. The projects were split into two groups for an amount of $ 1-5 million (13%) and $ 10-25 million (9%).
ICOs have been launched in various industries, including energy and public services, financial services, legal services and trade. Financial services, blockchain infrastructure and banking and payments were the sectors in which the largest amounts of funding were collected.
The London Football Exchange, Cryptosolartech and Alchemy were the projects that attracted the largest amount of funds. The average loan attracted by the first 3 ICOs was $ 33 million. These numbers are much lower than those obtained by EOS or Telegram with the respective ICOs of this year.
Most of the projects were based in Europe (43%), which also became the leader in terms of fundraising (48% or $ 663 million). Asia showed a 65% reduction in funds raised and a 10% decline in the number of projects launched.
Service tokens (49.05%) and utility tokens (25.3%) dominated the offer, but the number of projects that offer utility tokens decreased by 10% compared to the second quarter. The full report can be found here.

- The Bitcoin.com mining pool directs its hash rate to Bitcoin Cash ABC
Today the news has emerged that the mining pool of Bitcoin.com will deviate all its efforts towards the BCH ABC.
The pool is owned and funded in part by Roger Ver, the famous promoter of BCH and a well known advocate of the fork adversary of Bitcoin Cash SV.
Bitcoin.com offers a regular hash rate of over 400 petahashes for Bitcoin Core and the exchange of the entire pool effort on BCH ABC should be a major incentive for the currency.
The data from Coin.dance suggests that Bitcoin.com is responsible for around 5% of the blocks extracted on the BCH blockchain, confirming that they have a history with the project. Their latest move suggests that Bitcoin.com sees BCH ABC as the legitimate successor to Bitcoin Cash.
Pool members are given an option to stay and move the ABC or move on to something else.
So far, about 65% of the total BCH pool has made its choice regarding whether they want to extract the SV or the ABC fork.

The auction was held in partnership with Artory, a register focused on blockchain, focused on art and collection, which recorded and recorded every detail of the event.
During the event several sales records of American artwork were broken, while Edward Hopper's Chop Suey won the evening by collecting $ 91,875,000 for the seller, the famous art collector Barney A. Ebsworth.
Other works of art made by names like Jackson Pollock, William de Kooning, Charles Demuth and Georgia O & Keeffee were auctioned, with a total of 42 pieces sold in the night.
Art has played a significant role in the process, as its registry (an authorized private blockchain) has recorded all significant information from the sale. The register contains data related to previous sales, final prices, auction dates, titles of articles, restorations and thefts. The only non-memorized information was the identity of the owners, which ensures that the privacy of art collectors and investors is strictly adhered to.
