From a mere number of 66 in 2013, to an impressive 10,397 by February 2022, the number of cryptocurrency transactions has exploded. Most crypto projects had an ICO from 2017 to 2017, but ICOs were eventually replaced by IEO, IDO and other funding methods. What was the reason for the decline in ICOs since 2017? It was also the year that ICOs really exploded. The number of cryptocurrencies surpassed four-digits for the first time. Many of these projects were a fortnight wonders and failed to become anything significant. This led to ICOs being criticized and the halting of this type of funding.
IEOs are initial exchange offerings. This is where crypto projects sell their tokens on a crypto exchange. It didn’t work out as well as expected, because crypto exchanges have a strict process regarding which crypto projects they will accept to IEOs.
IDOs were created to solve this problem. They allow crypto projects to sell their tokens on a decentralized platform like Uniswap or PanCakeSwap. The entry barriers for new projects are very low. It is also economically sensible, since the trading volume on the decentralized exchanges (DEXes), soon surpassed that of the centralized ones. In fact, the DEX trading volume reached a record of 1 trillion dollars in 2021.
It can be difficult to identify the most promising projects with almost every new cryptocurrency project choosing an IDO. This article will discuss the Top Five NFT, DeFi& CryptoIDOs for Q1 2022. Let’s get started.
Cloudname: Supercharging Domain Trading Space
The NFT technology has disrupted a number of industries including real estate, music and gaming. It’s time for a shift in the domain trading industry. Cloudname brings the magic of NFTs into domain traders to enable them to reap the benefits.
Cloudname brings its A-game into the domain trading industry with features such as renting, tokenization and live market tracking. Cloudname’s tokenization feature allows domain sellers to tokenize high-value domains in ERC-20 tokens, and then sell them easily. Domain buyers would be able to purchase a portion of high-potential domains. This is possible because fractionalization wouldn’t have made it possible.
Cloudname offers domain renting options for users who wish to rent high-value domains to their business websites. However, their prices make it prohibitively expensive. Cloudname’s portfolio feature allows users to manage their portfolio from one location. It will also keep users up-to-date with changes in the domain prices and future projections. It sounds amazing, right? Check out their IDO on PolkaBridge. Cloudname’s IDO date on PolkaBridge for Cloudname is February 20, 2022. Cloudname’s IDO at PancakeSwap, however, is February 22, 2022.
SolanaPrime: Making funding accessible for Solana-powered crypto projects

SolanaPrime, one of the most promising Solana crypto projects, will host an IDO during Q1 2022. It is designed to facilitate funding raising for Solana-powered projects, particularly in the NFT and DeFi sectors. SolanaPrime has secured seed funding from Sheesha Finance and Llama Ventures. All users who purchase PRIME tokens from SolanaPrime, will receive XPRIME as a reward token.
SharkRace is a combination of P2E Metaverse 3D Games & Rarity-enabled NFTs
SharkRace is a combination of the Play2Earn features with the magic and NFTs. It is the first project to bring the rarity upgrade feature for NFTs. The NFT collection includes 20,001 NFT sharks that were created by top-caliber artists who have received awards like the prestigious Cannes Lions Award.
SharkRace’s rare upgrade platform will allow anyone who owns these NFTs to upgrade their NFTs. NFT owners only need the upgrade items that they can purchase from the rarity platform. SharkRace NFT owners also get access to an exclusive club that offers a wide range of benefits, including voting rights, lifetime royalties, and much more.
