9 Free ICO Listing Sites to Start Making Sales

As mentioned in our Ultimate Guide to ICO Listings, ICO directories are a fantastic source for traffic, contributions, and trust building. Creating a profile for your ICO allows you to tap into an audience that is ready and willing to buy in.

In order to ensure trust for investors, some ICO directories require either a payment up front for listing. However, there are still many directory sites that will offer to list your ICO for free, but in order to appear ahead of the pack – you’ll need to cough up some Bitcoins.

While premium listings will bring better visibility to your ICO, there doesn’t mean you shouldn’t list your ICO. Especially when it’s free. We’ve put together 9 of the best ICO listing sites you can list on for FREE, ranked by estimated traffic courtesy of SimilarWeb.

An interesting take on reviews, ICO Rating measures ICO success in three factors: Investment, Hype, and Risk in a low/medium/high scale.

The end result is a recommendation that claims your ICO is positive, stable, or risky.

ICO Bazaar –

Combining a directory with events, ICO Bazaar is great for those who those also intend on hitting blockchain events. Token sale rating system also gives you a score by measuring 6 areas of your ICO: project Idea, whitepaper, team, media & community, and technical implementation.

ICO Tracker –

Sometimes the extras aren’t necessary when hunting for ICOs. ICO Tracker keeps it simple with token sale details, ICO information, links to social and whitepapers, and team members.

Submitting your ICO adds it to a public queue, and while this allows all ICOs an opportunity to get published. In order to speed up publishing, all ICOs have the opportunity to donate to the website, which bumps you up the queue. In my experience, their estimation can be a bit off. For example, being placed at position 310 was said to have taken 23 days to publish, but didn’t happen as planned; it took exactly a month to go from position 310 to 15.

  • Traffic: 62,900 visitors/mo
  • Global Rank: 694,520
  • Cost: Free with option to publish sooner with a minimum donation of 0.1 BTC

Smith & Crown –

Description: Smith & Crown is a unique cryptocurrency news site. It’s the world’s leading blockchain research organization that not only provides news on the global trends in blockchain, but also does heavily in-depth research on ICOs. The good news is that it’s absolutely free; the bad news is that it’s hard to get into the curated list.

Most ICOs that publish to Smith & Crown will end up in the token sale calendar, however their team believes in high quality curation and is selective about which ICOs to do a full review article on. S&C has a 2 week turnaround time.
