The beginning of this year was nowhere near as interesting as the January 2018 when the USA marked as many as 55 ICOs in comparison to this year’s meagre four. The USA is also no longer the leader, as Singapore had nine ICOs this January.

It is still quite a small number when compared to 2018, but nevertheless an interesting trend. One possible reason for such a drop could be the SEC’s watchful eye turning to the crypto business. Regardless, let’s take a look at five of the most interesting projects we have in February:

1. healthbank (HBE)

No photo description available.

A blockchain-based health data exchange platform, capable of collecting data regardless of the source or format, healthbank has done quite a lot despite the fact that its security token sale is still almost a month away.

Although not the only project trying to revolutionize the exchange, storage and monetization of health data, they are quite possibly the most advanced. The presale will be done by February 27th.

We chose to feature this project in our monthly picks as it looks like one of the best new health-focused blockchain projects with a product that has real value. According to their roadmap, they will start their main token sale on February 28th and we are looking forward to seeing more.

We all know BitTorrent as the distributed communication protocol that facilitates the delivery of large and highly demanded files across the Internet, but now they are venturing into the blockchain area with an ICO that started in January 2019.

Connecting the BitTorrent P2P network to the TRON blockchain, their exact plan is to incentivize users to allow others to make use of their spare resources and ultimately increase file-sharing efficiency.

After the ICO, the public’s excitement was so high, that the price of BTT skyrocketed nearly six times, and right now it is trading at a steady $0.00098 USD, so this is definitely a breath of fresh air in the blockchain world, with signs of continuing success.

As one of the most thrilling projects in the crypto-sphere, they certainly have a lot of expectations to meet, but BitTorrent’s team has enough experience and expertise in various technological fields to pull it off.

Insolar is not a new player in the crypto industry, but it has drawn our attention in January when it launched its Private TestNet and received a positive forecast from DPRating. Insolar is building an open-source distributed business platform to provide for enterprises security and interoperability.

Starting out as INS Ecosystem in December 2017, when it gathered a massive $41.5M USD, it was rebranded as Insolar in November 2018 when it took on a new vision – developing much more than a standard protocol layer for others to build on.

Additionally, they are creating enterprise applications to be run on top of the Insolar blockchain, labelling themselves as the “Blockchain 4.0”. So far it’s looking really good for them as the popular digital assets rating portal DPRating gave them Bb with a Medium Risk which in addition to Private TestNet launch shows that these folks are quite serious.
