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.
Yes, I believe investment in ICOs are highly profitable even if an ico is not very good. Project makers will try to pump the coin and that's the moment to sell everything. Yet I think that they are still too risky for an ico might not only end up being nothing good but even not become listed on any exchanger. Moreover, only rather big sums can be invested in icos (like $1k), if I'm not mistaken. And this makes it all even more risky.

At the moment, I invest only time in ICOs (ie: bounty campaigns). Of course, I need to check teams and guess % of ICO success since the risk to have no rewards is high.

the most of the people who comes towards ico's are in the greed to double their investment or triple it and sometime it happens but most of the time not. i think some of them were good too but most of them were scam and we have seen them but we have also seen some of the ico's doing really well and it is very good for the investors of it.
i think it usually depends upon the ico how it is looking and the type of team behind this. i think those ico's having trusted teams and looking good attract the users to follow it or invest in it..

Usually i try to read some particular reports such as real address of the ico and the age of their social media accounts.with previous activity.
If i find them most active on social media and very supportive on issues asked, also if they look a number of people making arrangements for their success with effort,i would be willing to invest in the ico.

Ensure that they are solving a problem or will disrupt an existing business/industry.

Ensure that they can develop software, by enabling you to run or use software that they've already built.

Building software takes much more skill, time and work than any other aspect on the ICO.

First of all, Technology. I think It's the key issue. Also White Paper and development team is very important. I have joined my first bounty campaing in Swarm.fund and I have looked them. They have amazing development team and I liked their technology. I think they may be very succesfull in near future.

If someone held my family hostage and said they'd kill everyone if I don't invest in an ICO, I might consider it.

You do hate ICO,eh? but you do really have a point on which most of them do failed and comes worst it ends on becoming a scam which would really be a result on wasting up money but talking on what are the things that i do check first when i decide to invest on an ICO is their whitepaper which i do usually check because you can able to see on what are their aims and their plans on what they are trying to build or launch on here.

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?




We all want to invest into an ICO project because the goal is to make a profit, that's all. Does anyone invest with the goal of not wanting to profit?

Technology, dev team and marketing must be at top level for me to invest money. Reading the white paper brings a lot of the needed information.

unique target venue and the dev behind the project, I think if the project got a different approach from its target supporters or target area of services
it will gather lots of attention and supports then after the dev are also trustable with huge knowledge about their projects,.

Since there are worries about scams, I try to make sure that the team is not based in one of the corrupt countries, as the risk of exaggerations and lies will increase:

The interesting project proposal in ico is very important to me (including whitepaper and roadmap), after that, dev activity and even an attractive and responsive campaign manager will also get plus points. The most important factors are the people behind the project and how seriously their business grows in finding business partners. If ico Project only impresses prototypes from scratch and is only done by 1-3 people without advisor. then it will not be too interesting.

That's a good list, except I would change the ranking.

Depending on how willing and able a team is to exaggerate or be dishonest, they can make "Team Composition" seem better than it really is.  There are many projects that have stacked the team with many people that have little experience or skill related to cryptos, technology or the business that the project wants to enter.

Depending on how willing and able a team is to exaggerate or be dishonest, they can build more hype than others  Or, they can create fake users and therefore make the community seem more active than justified.

The following should be much more important:

Quote
5 – What do they need the token for? Is the blockchain necessary?

Everyone is trying to launch an ICO, and they'll try to put anything and everything onto a blockchain.  Most ICOs' ideas do not need to be on a blockchain.  One ICO is trying to hook up locals with visitors to enhance the travel experience.  Really?  This is a joke.

The following can be misleading:

Quote
9 – Quality of the code – Meet Githhub

You'll never know if the code is original or copied.  You'll never know if the team can write software, unless they have software that you can run or use.  Never invest in an ICO that doesn't have software that you can run.  It takes way more skill, work and time to write software than to stack the team, answer questions, hype up the community, creating a video or even writing the white paper.

Nice post, which does make total sense.

If they are developing a system that does not require blockchain to work then it is pointless. So why are most ideas out of place.

Simple cause they are into the money and only the money.

I wonder which projects will be develop in the end.

As to the knowledge of the team, if a team gets huge funds it can buy the talents, am not worried about this.

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.
ya thats why we invest in ico, we invest for profit. investing in ico means we expect high profit in long term process
