There are a lot of ICOs happening around. What things do you check before investing priority-wise?

Something you believe in. Don't invest in an ICO with the simple aim of getting rich quick. Half the ICOs are for random alts that don't offer anything innovative. Invest in something you believe in. If it's innovative and brings something new to the table then others will buy into it to.

For me Im reading its whitepaper if this coin have a nice plan in future but by reading this doesn't guarantee that we can earn from it since their are certain ICO's who have great intention but been dump by certain hype.

and one piece go invest on ICO's if they had bunos upon their early stage so that you can accumulate more numbers of coins rather than investing on its late early stage while you only get what you buy for that time and also don't hold it for to long since mostly of ICO are being dump and killer by its own devs.

i decide when i see the potential on it, and when the ico is new in the market, many people will invest on it for short trade trading, when they buy coins they will sell it fast, buy coins with high reviews or feedbacks on forum or in any other place, you need to research for it first too before investing to avoid any money to be lose.

Just to clarify, these are not investments. They are pure gambles, virtually 100% luck based. Which is fine, but I think the point is that there isn't anything you can check or do to ensure profitability, unlike actual investments.

That is why you should really be smart on joining ICO's and most of them do really dump after the launch that's why be aware and attentive enough to sell off the coins you have bought.Bonus coins is really a plus and one thing I do consider when I'm joining. Whitepaper is always there and I do also check its roadmap and the transparency of their devs so that I can somehow avoid ICO scams.

The first thing I check is the write paper and evaluate what the startup try to accomplish. Also, I evaluate the team and the most important I need to believe in the project.

By reading its whitepaper you can actually determine on how things would provably goes for a coin and so by this you can tell easily if this coin was been made as shitty as you imagine, But I rarely unto altcoin scene since I think majority of them are made just to scam those ICO investor and this matter should be one of the best basis for us to tell and avoid on those ICO. be vigilant always guys since even they've write some good words on their whitepaper still we cannot actually tell if they are scam on this matter.

That s a good question. So many ICOs getting out recently and even more will get out in the future.

I personally stick to those which caught my attention long time ago and do not speculate on 10 different projects. That s a way to lose your money 100% cause you simply cannot follow development of so many projects. When you find something interesting, read their whitepaper, visit their slack/forum and ask around. Good luck.

my ICO investment is based on their white paper . although there are so many sugar coated ICO proposals but most of all just the best of luck , there are no certainties of how legit is the ICO will be all we gonna do is just cross our fingers that the ICO we have invested would launch smoothly . ICO is synonymous to betting.

Same philosophy applies when looking at start ups and companies that you'd invest in in general minus the start-up aspects. You're putting your time and money with the hope of a return and the people backing the company / coin and what it's all about must have it's place and have potential. There's so many different aspects to take into account and it's easy to overlook details. My best advice would be to be thorough and take your time before diving into pre-sales.

Well for me when choosing an ICO i still just checking first the promotion roadmap background how owners trusted.
And 2/10 only are legit ICO that i think can stay long in the market and gives you profit that is why other recommend to invest already in the top 20 rankings in coinmarketcap.. Because its really hard to know if what are ICO are giving you a good profit most of scam coin can be look like a legit coin..
So for me better to invest in the top 20 altcoin instead of ICO but you can be still invest it will be still depends in your own way how to know the legit one ..

Bull Market is coming....

Only ICOs with trusted escrow are good enough to invest. Everything else could be an easy scam.

Before I go Invest on some altcoins their I really make sure that the coin I've watching in is having a good media partners so that they can get more attention for their projects and secondly I read their whitepaper on what would be the project going after the ICO will get success and last I make sure that the project have some escrow so that if theirs bad things happen to the project the escrow will give back the funds since devs doesn't deliver well to their product.

I decide on the project, that is behind the ICO. It must be a project, that I can stand behind like health care, social projects or solar power company or new innovative developments. Then I look to the ICO team and the investments, that are provided with the ICO.

Innovative development as you said has been used by those ICO runners just to make their project looks legit but I am the looking for ICO I make sure that theirs product involve in their project so that they will have backup plan for their floating coin when it added on exchange. try to look those beautiful ICO project before they have dead right now and try to look those casino sites who run an ICO they had been successfull already for their long time running here.

If I am looking for a long term investment

First thing I look is the idea, then team

If I am looking for a short term investment, first team then idea but I don't mean that one of these is not important, both team and idea are very important.

One of the good indicators - successful pre-ico. Also I look at website: who standing behind the company, if there are photos aff all members with description - this is also good sign.
One of new thing - if company participating in Wings.
Also look at bounty company, at agiotage around bounty and ico.

Team and traction of the team and their projects. Good projects doesn't come out of nowhere. If team members value their reputation it means the project is here to stay and is good for the long term investment.
