According to data complied by Autonomous Research, august 2018 was the worse month in term of money invested in ICOs project in the last 16 months.

Yeah, 2018 has been a very bad year for ICO's. I really hope that 2019 will be much better. There's a lot of great project out there just waiting on investors. of course there's also a lot of scammers, and the amount of scammers doing fake ICO's have also been much smaller in 2018 than 2017, so that's one of the good things about this situation. Let's all just hope that 2019 will be much better in anyways :)

Best regards
