Title: Is buying ICO always return the same amount of altcoin the investor invested?
Post by: layoutph on February 11, 2017, 11:47:14 AM
Does purchasing ICO very rewarding? Yes I know there are lots of ICO scams, but lets talk about the genuine ones.  
For example if bought 100usd worth of ICO, will the value of ICO I bough remains 100usd or higher?
What if the altcoin ICO doesnt meet the target purchase amount they are expecting for. Will I get the same amount of ICO worth the money I invested?

I'm guessing like any other coin not an ICO they would get listed on an exchange then..
start high and drop in price and never get as high price wise again.
This picture shows it all..

It depends on market actually whether you will get more return on your investment or not.Suppose ypu invested 1 btc in ico and get 1000 tokens for it.
Now your profit is dependent on market price of each token.Some Coins like ICN is still trading 3x above their ICO price.

If ICO funds are escrowed,the escrow can refund the investors money if it doesn't reach the minimum amount.

well, if we assume there is a genuine one out there an you can find it to invest and think it can be profitable then yeah.
and about the price, it is an investment afterall. which means when you invest you are accepting both profit and loss. there is no guarantee for profit.
and this means if the price of that altcoin goes down you lose money the same way if price goes up you make money.

Ive taken part in quite a lot of ico s in my time here and from my experience (maybe im bad or just unlucky) you would be better just keeping your money in btc. Had i kept the BTC instead of the various icos i invested in then at the end of the day i would have more btc. Ive probably not really lost much since the relative price of bitcoin vs usd has increased but had i not bought into ico i would obviously have more.

Some get lucky and pick the right ico but they are few and far between.

why would you even want to invest in an ICO with the current situation of the altcoins that are created these days?
i mean i see investing in altcoins like a gamble, it is no longer an investment.
how many of the ICOs in the past have been successful? and for how much profit and how long then lasted?
if you do a little research on these simple facts you realize it is not such a good idea to take such a huge risk.

In most cases, few weeks after coin from ICO is added to the exchange price falls under ICO value and latter slowly goes up back to it, so in most cases that is best time to buy. But some ICOs specially ICOs for games that i participated at they give you some game asset for your ICO participation. And it is usually quite valuable since is rare.

For example with Safe Exchange Coin the price went from ICO price of 5 Satoshi to 400 Satoshi and now it is stabilized at 30 Satoshi  so people grew impatient. Now it is beginning to rise because the main developer has been making the plans and code for launch.

https://safe.exchange/uploads/default/original/2X/c/c816ee6711752076659e90a706f9d8b1a338cf3f.png

Now that there are clear plans and the main developer is in full gear making an Anonymous Marketplace the  Safe Exchange Coin Holders will receive dividends (https://safex.io).

So buying bad ICO means you will lose money, if its an ok ico then you will save money, if it's a good and useful ICO you will Make more Money.

In the case of Safe Exchange Coin people make money, and it is continuing to grow because it makes useful products.

ico selling sometime can get much profit, another coin scam, and not wroth, if youre buy ico selling if incraese high price must fast selling because can down again
pesobit ico price 300 satoshi, only one month after ico end incraese price very high until 10k satoshi , or 33x for ico price, take profit 3000% only one month
pesobit price this now down again to 350 satoshi

Unfortunately that is not always not the case,there's a coin where people invested 1000 sats per coin but it's now trading 30 to 50 sats in the market and there are a lot of coins similar,demand and supply always play a big factor,a coin with good projects ahead and features usually makes profit to it's ico investors,it's much better to buy on exchanges than ico.

They're all fucking scams.  None of these coins should even exist, and all the demand for them is by suckers like OP who want to get rich.  ALL of them are headed for the graveyard after months at most.  Yobit 1 satoshi wonders, all of them.  Once they're shat out upon the market, the devs get their money and demand hits the toilet.

100 dollar is not a big amount but you should be comfortable on what ever the outcome is,the risk is very high when you invest in Ico,I don't know why and how they calculate the price,but based on what I'm seeing it's very rare for an ico coin to hit higher than their ico price,so just buy when it hit the market,so you can see the whole picture.

quite rewarding if everything working smoothly, buying ICO is like pre-order thing, usually when they launch the price will up and the go down to stabilize position, but buying ICO is not really recommended because it got a high risk, and some of the alt coin developer are scammers, so buying ICO is like gambling

If anyone knows what will be the output of an ICO then we can win at all ICO we are joining, but that's not the real happening in an ICO world.

Basically, if all ICO are success and established a good price once they are listed in an exchange, yes it's worth your money and can even passed the amount you have invested. Just expect now that the ICO you have chosen must gather strong support for the community so that it can meet your criteria.

If we are talking about the genuine ICO, I could say that most of them (not all) provides good profit in the long run. Well, all of the ICO  that I saw always placed their best foot forward to attract many investors. When the dev team of a certain ICO provide good progress and stick to their timelines, their price will increase. However, it could also go the other way and the price of it would tank. Basically, it all depends on the capability of the devs whether their coin/project will be success.

Buying in on an ICO is a form of investment which carries risks of making a loss on it or making a profit, but if more research is done on a coin, we might invest in a profitable ICO. And value never stays the same its either positive or negative gain!

One thing which i have seen in multiple ico is that

Usually ico project which comes with bounty hunters, especially those camp which contains tons of bhunter like 500 600 participants, you can expect a drop in proce after ico for the first week or weeks, the reason why is because everyone wanted to get btc instead of holding a coin which doesn't transact for cash value easily.

Look at chronobank, their sig participants, social media have tons of peope in it, lets look at the price

But the price of it might be stable or better than ico because for their sig, a maximum of 0.3% of collected amount is distributed. Therefore, 99.7% of tokens is still safe from dumping ;)

This is the reality of most of the ICO coin and some other altcoins. Sad, but true and I join several ICO and some never get into exchanges. So far, the worthy and excellent ICO I joined and rewarding was ICN coin or ICOMI. It even appreciates several months after it reaches on exchanges.

Usually all ICO gives away less than 1% in bounty.Signature participants alone cannot bring down the price of a coin in exchange.Take for example ICN, why its price didn't dropped,KMD may be another example.
On the other hand Antshares distributed peanuts in bounty but their price is still below ICO.

I have invested into many ICOs after doing some research.

It is a bit risky, but overall i am up.

The bounty hunters are everywhere ( not just Crypto) i have found that they don't really cause issues with the market once ICO is closed.

Do some research, buy some ICO coins, keep an eye on them and make sure you sell when you planned. hoping they go up more may cost you more than what you might of made.

The best way to learn is to have your ass handed to you. Invest small amounts so you learn and don't get soaked. Then when you start making gains on your small amounts you can start looking at bigger. If you start big, you'll lose big and then you're done.

There's no easy money in crypto even though people like to whine about say otherwise.

the result on return sometimes would turn out sour, some coin projects are merely hype even though it seems legit, you would see the activity and updates would be delayed for almost months then years, that would affect and lessen the price of the coin.

i am agree that investing in many ICO is risky because we don't know what will happen after the ICO is finished and we only hope that the ICO is success and we can make decent of profit. i think, if i want to investing in ICO, i need to read all information about the ICO and doing research like what you do, trying to investing with small amount while i can continue to follow the journey and see if there is any good news from the ICO and the dev, maybe i can make other investing.

In my opinion this is just like the trading with the altcoin/bitcoin or bitcoin/altcoin here only difference is that we are dealing with that altcoin which is no get launched .
Second thing of scam and legit we can't predict .
Before invest in trading we need to think or see at the two things .
First thing is what is the special about the ICO which is making different from other altcoin ICO .
Second thing is what is the popularity between the bitcoiners , that will help to making buying more by the bitcoiner after the launching .
If these two thinks you like much about the ICO , then you should try to Invest Otherwise leave it here

Depend on the price of coins after be added on exchangers,
if the price is increasing will get profit from early investing
but if the price is decreasing will be losing money because of buy ICO.

Nope, it depends on the ICO result. because too many the fixed price ico are giving a bullshit for us. after the coin hitting the exchange site and the price will go down over the multiple times of the ico price.

Its super profitable if you catch the right ones, i have made 20x to 40x returns on some. yes i lost on some too but they were minor losses. next investing in wic which looks like a really cool idea and it will be only 0.00003 BTC max ico price, much cheaper if they dont sell out. easy 20-40x opportunity there in my opinion.....strat was good too, edgless also doubled from the ico price.

When ICO creators invest a lot of OWN money they have free TOKENS to dump, same time ICO BTC will always return to them.
So sometimes ICO which are dumped i bet are in 100% made that way to cash out on you stupid investor.
But morons have tendency to blame that 2% BOUNTIES dumped ...
Next thing to srew invoetors is HIGH bonus like +25%... and people CRY why dropped,

People you will NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH CREATORS HAVE self invested in ICO to DUMP later.
So stop playing dump people and cry that ICO token was dumped below ICO price.

I bought $TIME from Chronobank and the ICO price is 1TIME = 0.01BTC , so I thought it would be 0.01 to 0.02 once it will land on exchange sites. But until now the price is between 0.06 to 0.8. Thats why I created this post. I wish I just bought the coin in the exchange sites instead of buying from ICO. Lols.

Yes it can really be compared as gambling but if you did chose the right coin then you might win or gain profits and this is the hardest part on choosing a coin and does have a good potential.Its not an easy thing to carelessly chose and for op it depends on devs if they would pay up equivalent on thr amount you invested but mostly this do happen.

True. It is like a gambling also and it depends on owner/developer how honest are they. Not all ICO's returns are the same. Some are terminated when the target is not met and disappear without any trace.Investor are left behind wondering.

Most probably I will say your Investment will remain constant Because I know that most of the ICOs are scam but few of them are really profitable ICOs .
So here most of the times in the Investment of the ICO you will not get much profit .
But here I will suggest you instead to invest in the ICO , buy the altcoin at the instant after the launch Because after the launch in one week the altcoins price will increase , in this way you can make some better Profit without altcoin ICOs Investment .
So here change ICOs into Trading .
