ICObench: Fall Guy for the ICO Support Service Industry?

On April 24, 2018, we posted an article entitled ICObench Warmer. In that article, we showed how experts at ICO rating site ICObench inflated the ratings of projects they were advising. Since then, several more articles have appeared denouncing what we lovingly refer to as the ICObench "Top-Rated Expert Cabal."

ICOmageddon Cometh?

On May 14, 2018, the obscure and rarely used1 search engine known as “Bing” decided to ban all cryptocurrency advertising, thereby joining the ranks of Facebook, Google, and Twitter, which had each made similar announcements earlier in the year. Although this latest ban applies to all cryptocurrency advertising, the greatest impact will mostly likely be felt by “Initial Coin Offerings,” or “ICOs,” which up until the ban had been the most competitive cryptocurrency-related ad buyers.

Once Bing’s ban is fully implemented, 71.4% of all online advertising “real estate” will be off limits to ICOs.2 Coupled with increasing regulatory scrutiny these past few months, are we finally witnessing the “beginning of the end” for ICOs? Does “ICOmageddon” in fact cometh?
