The team at Bitmex Research has collaborated with TokenAnalyst to take a thorough look at the treasure balances of several individual ICOs on the Ethereum network. The two teams released a report that showed that ICO teams allocated $24.2 Billion worth of tokens to themselves.
The Bitmex and TokenAnalyst report goes on to state that this figure has fallen to $5 Billion due to current market conditions. There is also an additional $1.5 Billion of token transfers that has happened away from the ETH addresses of these teams. The report speculates that these tokens were ‘disposed’ of. Also noted by the report is that these tokens would have a $80 Billion valuation using the peak value of each digital asset.
