It really depends on what u want , if u want to find a good project ,want to lower your risk ,find a long term investment, read it ! thoroughly
If wat u want is just gamble or crazy speculations , u just have to observe the community and their marketing , in crypto it's not asset based , as long as there is greed , hype , the price will double , triple or even ten fold

Yes I use to read the ICO white paper before investing my money, and not only that I also look the integrity of the manager who promote the ICO. This is because there are campaign manager who don't promote scam ICO. So these are some the things I take into consideration before investing in any ICO.

What about you?

If you want to know what you are investing into, then you have to read the whitepaper, road maps and know the developers involved in the project. Otherwise, you might be investing in a complete trash and you do not know it.
And it also helps you can know when the price of the token you have invested can increases (if this token can listed on exchange) through road map, because most token usually choose event in road map for create bullish trend.

I'm seeing more and more whitepapers which say nothing. Obviously the technical details have to be in place. But at the end of the day every coin is a servant to king BTC anyway.

One would like to know a bit more before investing, so reading the whitepaper is at least one reasonable step, though probably not enough on its own, but it's a start.
Some whitepapers are really badly written, so this gives you a very good idea about the "competency" of the team. On the other hand, some show real insight and dedication and that of course increases interest in potential stakeholders.

I try to do max due deligence before buying any coin.

What about you?

Not only do I thoroughly read the Whitepaper of a project that got my attention but I also carefully observe the community that is emerging around that project.



The community is a good indicator that things are moving

I always look at project's whitepaper. In order to understand most of them, you don't need to be a tech person but I think team is much important than whitepaper.

Reading the whitepaper is a important. The whitepaper explains in detail the concept of the new crypto project. If there is a discrepancy between the explanation of concepts in the whitepaper with the published source code, then of course the negative conclusions can be drawn on the project.

Some keypoints you must look for in whitepapers are:
* token usage
* vesting
* roadmap
* team experience
* product development
* the real need of smart contracts in the product

whitepapers explain the report in detail, even I am interested to translate their whitepaper in the native language, in it we can see this project more complete and compare it with similar projects, if there is something unreasonable can be directly understood and asked directly, whitepaper is a document important in business proposals

For me it's a must to read all about an ICO before investing in. This in not only true for ICO it's true for every kind of investment. You should know very well about at what you are putting your money in. Patince is very important here. Don't just jump in to a projcet because there is so much hype about it or it looks appealing at the first look. Take your time and analyze it deeply.

Understant a project by reading their whitepaper is very important because by understand it we can know the purpose of the project, what problem to be solved and who behind of the project. This must be because investing in ICO is risky, remember investing in high risk high return there must be analysis and money management to minimize the risk.

Yes, it is very important that you know every process of the ICO. You are not just investing your money. You invest your time and effort. Before invest, you have to make sure that it is worth it. You have to study if that ICO is really feasible that people will trust the product and that your investment will multiply.

I prefer not to invest into ICOs, not by the sole fact of being an ICO, but because most ICO proposals that I've seen so far don't make much sense. That's also the reason why I avoid reading the whole whitepaper. But I bet that not even half of the people who put money into it read the whole thing.

If a team is not be able to make a good whitepaper, they are not able to make a good project...So you can learn a lot from a whitepaper even if you don`t understand it

That is a good idea to read the white paper before investing into any project. Not only that you have to follow their ANN how the community is reacting and whether the company is able to answer the question we have to follow everything before investing into any ICO's.

To add to your concern, most ICO's are still just businessplans, without any real product or usage. That's why I invested in Change Bank, because they're already in business. THey're now working towards becoming the first decentralized crypto bank with features such as paying all around the world in an instant with your cryptos, investing, applying for loans, getting insurance, and so much more.

yes, you must read the white paper first before you going to invest, for you to be able to learn more about their project and how does the project goes. Project must have a good whitepaper to have a many investor.
