1) First day heat, with a 1000 BTC whale investment.
2) Aug. 14th is the last day of the 20% bonus.
3) Aug. 23rd witnessed a 500 BTC investment in one transaction.
4) Sept.7th is the last day of the ICO.
Generally, the Antshares ICO is similar to other ICO projects in terms of capital inflow, excluding the 1000 btc and 500 btc investments. That is, bulk on the beginning and the end while flat in between; and bonus end leads to small peeks. You can also tell that this round of ICO is influenced by whale investments. The total 1,500 btc investment came from 2 transactions, amounting 1/4 of the total ICO funds raised. We assume this is from long-term enthusiasts that possess a hefty amount of fund.
