The first big project to combine gaming and blockchain. It has been the largest ICO at that time in May 2017. We have seen decline of their token price (https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/mobilego/), but we expect to see big things from once the biggest ICO.
#9: DomRaider (NEW) – $62 million
Directly from France with a very strong team we have DomRaider, decentralized blockchain auctions in real-time. DomRaider is part of few established companies that have done token sale, so there is a lot of expectation from their team and product.

New ICO coming from Japan landing directly at place 6. Comsa is a solution for centralized businesses to adopt blockchain technologies. Their token sale continues and if it goes at this rate it might land at number 5 dethroning Status.

The DAO – $168 million
It wasn’t a conventional ICO distribution, they weren’t selling or promoting any particular product, they were in a way selling the ownership of themselves. They aim to provide a business model for decentralized companies. This at the time set a record for the largest crowdfunding campaign in the history with $168,000,000.
