Hi,

I am considering, there are so many criterias which can influence a decision to invest or not in current ICO Crowdsale? Are you able to exclude top 5 criterias which are the most important (and why?) for your decision to invest or not? (ROI? Team? Relevance of project? …)

Just don't invest in ICOs and you will be good. You can buy them later on the open markets if the project and the team is true.

First, it is the how credible is the developer and the team behind the project e.g Dacrus ICO didn't hit the minimum fund cap and the fund was refunded to the investors in the matter of days while Decloud scam investors and run away with their money. The difference between the two is that Dacrus developer was known and trusted but Decloud developers was not known by anyone

second, it is how feasible the idea is, so many dummy ideas outthere now asking for money for project that have no real world use.

Third, Credible Escrow is a must to protect you in case of any unforeseen circumstances

Credibility of developers is definitely important. For me I also look a the tech their project is being built on. If I am a big fan of the tech and it seems like they are making interesting changes(addressing new market or taking different approach to solve a problem) then I will be more interested.

That doesn't answer what is the most important criteria. I have always made money on ICO and what I usually go for is pretty pictures and anonymous devs with no escrow.

It's a bit of a tough one really, various factors come into play.

  • Is the project good, or is it just a copy of something else already out there.
  • Is there any history with the team, have they done anything in the past.
  • What is the community feeling towards the project.
  • Lastly, how much bitcoin are you willing to lose (in case it all falls through).

Just a few that come to mind right now.

Do you have some strategies of investing in these ICO projects?

How do you diversify your investments?
Different investment sizes?
How many ICO projects have you invested already?

This is highly recommended of course there are profit if you are the first trader of the coin,but you can save yourself from scam ICO,some of these Ico small portion hardly get into exchange and if they ever get in,it is just to  pour their premine.

to be honest, it is better to stay away from ICO because the outcome is too unpredictable,it is like choosing an item in the dark place, there are no indicator what is the bad coin and what is the good coin, because the coin is still in an early stage, and i had failed 2 times investing in ICO and i don't think i want to repeat that mistake again

let some other mark take the hit. don't put any money into them. if it's a real project then it'll launch on an exchange and almost certainly collapse as people run for the exit. once it's settled down a little then it might be worth a closer look.

icos are run by assholes for assholes.

Transparency plays a big factor to me and expertise,these are my main guide in choosing the right ICO to invest if any one of this absent I will not invest at all,there's no way they can develop a coin without people behind it knows how to code a coin and set up projects,and if they failed to answer all investors queries,people cannot trust that project.

Honestly, I strongly agree with all of the things has listed in there, and it was true. The fundamentals.

You should study what amount of ICOs have ended up with a price that's higher than what the ICO sold off at the begining. If im not mistaken, this is a very smart %. This alone shows how lucky you must be to pick up a good deal.

But if you still want to get in a ICO, investigate the project, learn about it, and very important: learn what the total supply of the coins will be. No matter how good a project is, if the inflation is too big, the investment will go down (look at ZCash)

Yes inflation is also an issue,unless the coin has a lot of projects and dev is a big whale and can set up a buy wall for his coin,his coin will end up a dead coin,anyway they can still opt to burn their coin,there's a coin that can do that for you and it's name is Barr..

People behind the project,unmoderated threads so people can ask freely,escrow in one trusted escrow so we'll be sure that dev will not run away with the money and we can scrutinize the coin if it is really legit and of course transparency,not hiding anything from those who are asking.

Hi,

I am considering, there are so many criterias which can influence a decision to invest or not in current ICO Crowdsale? Are you able to exclude top 5 criterias which are the most important (and why?) for your decision to invest or not? (ROI? Team? Relevance of project? …)







People behind the project,unmoderated threads so people can ask freely,escrow in one trusted escrow so we'll be sure that dev will not run away with the money and we can scrutinize the coin if it is really legit and of course transparency,not hiding anything from those who are asking.

To invest in ICO it's necessary trust. I agree with you, you need to know who is running the project, what are the benefits they offer, if they don't look professionals, don't invest.
But I still agree with others here. Don't invest in ICOs is the best to do, wait more time, follow the coin progress and buy it when the coin is in the market.
