We all know that before investing we try to see the whitepaper, the team, the website quality, the idea, the social presence..

but in the end of the day, what makes you want to invest in a project?

What is the ticking edge for you?

1. Jurisdiction. The company should be registered and the address should be provided for public.
2. Team. It should consists of suitable people and it size should be real to make that they claim.
3. Whitepaper. It should be correctly written and everything should be described in details.
4. Hard Cap. It should suit to the scale of project. It could even absent due to the size, ambitious and confidence of the project.

I think after you gather up all that information it really just comes to whether you think the idea is plausible or not. If you think it can work and will be marketed well then go for

it. If you dont think the project will succeed then you best not touch no matter the hype or the terms. Because end of the day if you dont believe in a project, it will be hard to

stomach some of those sick crypto swings  Tongue

I hear people check the team and advisors, but you just can't know everybody in the industry. Who knows the advisor's and their team? I would guess not a lot of people.

Am looking for the hype.. If the telegram is well preserved, with many members.
Also I am looking to see how many posts they are on bitcointalk regarding the ICO.
The number of the supporters and the level they take it.
News posts influence me a lot. If I see forbes, is a good sign. I imagine is very expensive to get into Forbes.

 Project base, Idea, team and which type of market the project belong to and I usually prefer such projects which are based of highly valuable assets like the recent project I invested in was real-estate blockchain project (ATLANT) which gives an indication that the project will be a huge success in future.

There's another reason why people makes invest on an ICOs is for getting fast profit. Because participating in ICO there will be a percentage of bonuses on a particular week or day. It's around 40%-50% some even give 100% bonus. Nahh, when ICOs end the exchange place will release and sell it.

Investors from all over the world want to get in on the ground floor, hoping to become a stakeholder in a startup that could turn out to be the next Google or Facebook.

as we knew that this investment will give some instant earnings if we got in a right timing, people look for some chances to earn and they consider ico would be the good choice to invest their money, its like betting in a gambling platform where you aren't sure whether you will win or lose same deal with ico if project succeed you will earn if not then you will lose as well.

I believe that after you do your homework with the long due diligence list (i.e. team, WP....); you've to follow your own/gut feeling about that ICO/Idea......this kind of feeling should have been well developed from the study, monitoring & analysis of many other ICOs (especially the completed ones)

which makes me dare to invest in an ico is the clarity and legality of a project to be built,
let alone the team that entered in the project is very important

But we think that have more chances to win than casino people. And with deep investigation it is just like that. Learn more and read deeper - foundation of ICO invest. IMHO and it's work

Team, Advisor and most important,What ideas they carry, this is very important because almost all altcoin now only copy paste other project (Maybe)

Depends... if you invest (very) long-term you have to study the whitepaper and try to find out if there's a need for this idea. Not really easy though and some of the projects it's better to buy after the ICO for a lower price. You can also participate in ICOs if there's a lot of hype, wait for the first pump and sell. I think a lot of people are using this strategy. If it doesn't pump in the beginning you are sitting on coins you do not really like though.

And of course there are those ICOs like 0x, Kyber, OMG that are longterm projects but really profitable short-term also. If you find projects like those, it's a safe Investment.

Thanks for your way of thinking and your ideas.

I would guess that every person thinks differently, and what you are all saying makes sense.

1. Jurisdiction. The company should be registered and the address should be provided for public.


Am surprise you mention Jurisdiction... I would guess that since we are trying to force the community to remain decentralised, why would be want a company registered with an address?

I would think that would make the project compromised, based on the upcoming laws that are bound to hit the industry.

but in the end of the day, what makes you want to invest in a project?

What is the ticking edge for you?

For me the most ticking edge that drives me to invest on ICO's is it's profitability based on the roadmap and team. Most wouldn't really invest on ICO's if projects are not profitable at all and because of that many users look for the roadmap, team, and more to invest on new upcoming initial coin offerings. For the team criteria I evaluate team credibility by seeing how active the team is and their past achievements on other ICO's if they joined one.

I usually check their social media accounts, how active they are in their slack and telegram accounts. Whether they have a good road map and the goal should be plausible. I also watch their q&a, and see if the devs are professional in answering questions and delivering the their targets.
