I guess many people don't, if you judge from the comments that then they do on the ICO's threads...

Yes, though admittedly not as much as I probably should for most projects. I think people are stupid not to at all

I would say it is a must. All the most important details are included in this document. Nevertheless, it's not the only one important thing. I would also look at the experience of the team of founders, what industry the project focuses on. I know some projects which I think are very promising, first of all, because of the team and very perspective industry.

I see a lot of people that do not bother to read the paper,
I try to do max due deligence before buying any coin.

What about you?

Before I invest into something, I see to it it's worth it. So being a responsible investor, before you support that certain ICO you must see to it it's legit or it has something to offer that is possible to do. Some ICOs like those banned by China recently where just fundraising just to get the investor's money, in short it's a scam.

Whitepaper is a very vital piece of document of a project. That is very elementary that everyone should read the whitepaper if they want to invest in an ICO. If they are too lazy, then perhaps some portions in the whitepaper such as how they will proceed in turning the project into a reality and the team.

yes, before investing in an ico or project I will definitely read the whitepaper first,

All the project details are included in the white paper. Looking at it, you can see if the project is promising or not. You should read ICOs white papers before investing, and regularly check how project is going.

You need a "White paper" for that ? Really ?
Wouldn't knowing the basic idea be enough ?
Wouldn't knowing that the ICO by design is scammy be enough ?
You are leap frogging over common sense people.

The reason you are doing that is becasue you WANT to profit.. off of "schemes"
..that are tacked onto a block-chain / token.

So you are LOOKING for a scheme to invest in.
A scheme as in something not a currency but some alternate use case for a block-chain.
You are interested in the scheme because you want to know if the scheme holds promise of profits.
You are in fact simply scam aficianado's.. pushing ICO's to dump for BITCOIN PROFITS.

And dev's LOVE crypto because they are free to be anon while pushing ENDLESS scheme's while rigging them and manipulating them free from regulation. (like in the real stock markets)

Go hard idiots..
All of earth watching see's what i see.
They are not falling for the charade.

You're an unusual guy, aren't you spoetnik?

Being the only honest one here.. yeah.
Have anything to say about the topic NOOB ?

Maybe jiggle your little dick-holster at me when you get to Junior status Investard.  Cheesy

I enjoy Spoetnik's shit-talking posts greatly haha.

But yes, always read the f'ing whitepaper before you throw money at stuff!!!!!! There has to be an actual value proposition being delivered by the new crypto.

Does it drastically improve upon traditional non-blockchain options?

Is there a reason for people to hold/accumulate/use its tokens?

Is there any realistic chance of even niche-level adoption?

etc???

Ask yourself questions like these while reading whitepapers

Yes, this is of course. Every time I learn about ICO projects to invest in it, I always read the first white paper ICOs. This is a necessity and everyone should do if they do not want to lose money or invest in ICO projects no potential for growth in the future. In the white paper, they will introduce and present all the things that are relevant to the project, from the concepts, the roadmap to the way they work, and your benefit if you invest in that ICO project. This makes you understand better. Those who do not read white paper probably do not understand ICO projects. This is very dangerous because lack of understanding will lead to many losses.

I think reading white paper is the best way to get to know about the project before investing it. many people don't bother to read which is a bad thing.

Also not to forget how vital is to investigate the website the general concept and if they can develop the idea with the budget they are requesting.

It is included on if you wanted to invest in the project. So yeah you need to know the direction of the project you are investing on. So read on the whitepaper in order for you if the project is worth to put your investment on.

Everyone is trying to put anything and everything onto a blockchain.  Most of them are trying to squeeze square pegs into round holes.

There are a few applications that are well suited for cryptos:

*  transmitting value (currency)
*  store of value (which Bitcoin is)
*  smart contracts (Ethereum)
*  remittance
*  gambling

Not all applications are suited for cryptos.

One ICO is trying to match up locals with travelers to enhance travel experience.  No idea why a crypto is needed here.

Reading the white paper will help you discern if the project is trying to squeeze a square peg into a round hole.

Yes, reading whitepaper is the basic requirement to be a good investors, in the whitepaper, you can see a lot of information, including the creative idea, the market analysis, the token sale details and the team introduction.

Of course, when you make a mistake in your ICO campaign you will be removed and what a waste if you are removed, because if you know you're here you will be deleted. and you need to read your ICO campaign and you need to follow it at their would like.
