Indeed, this is a useful post for beginners, because most beginners don't know what ICO is.
They only know that ICO can make a profit, so this post can help them understand ICO, better choose ICO and guarantee the security of their tokens.

I think that my list of analytical factors for the evaluation of ICO is useful not only for beginners, but also for investors with certain experience.
The checklist is useful at least in the fact that many non-obvious things are collected in one place, and each item came with experience.

Yes, as you said, it's a good post.
I think you should be able to popularize the erc20 wallet and various wallet formats, because many new players will always transfer tokens from the exchange to the wrong address.

This is a valuable comment, thank you.
In spite of the fact that in the rules of many ICO it is written that it is impossible to send the air directly from stock exchanges, people still continue to do this and remain with nothing. Perhaps, I will add this remark to the next edition of my check-list.

thanks for sharing, but i think the main problem at present is that good projects are all sold to the institutions, its hard for retail investors to participate in

The Checklist is very thorough and indeed helpful especially for one that is new to the cryptoworld and looking to invest in ICOs.
The checklist must be taken seriously if you invest in any ICO and be successful in investments.

Thank you! What do you think that I should add to this list in the next iteration when I again sit down for several hours to edit and add it?

Thanks for you thread mate. It is a great idea to gather all that usefull tips in one place. I'm sure that such thread deserve to pinned. It will help newbs to save their money and will help the community to get rid of low quality / scam ICOs.
📌Operating system. To store crypto currency on desktop wallets, it is more reasonable and safer to use Linux operating systems, Ubuntu for example;
Can you pls explain me the point about Linux and why Windows is bad? It seems to be obvious because everyone  talk about it but I still haven't seen an explanation of that point and I don't know much about cubersecurity.
P.S. It may also seem obvious but I wou;d suggest to add a point about checking the  sources about the ICOs. For example to check if the team is real, find their Linkedin profiles and check for references. Also it is always good to check their twitter for fake followers.

I am also interested in this question. Many times I have heard this advice. Linux is difficult to learn. For this reason, most people use Windows when dealing with cryptocurrencies. If someone to explain in detail why this is so, I also think about changing the operating system.

+ check the linkedins of the team.  Do they have any relevant experience prior to their ICO/crypto-time?  Who are they? 
+ Lots of marketing isn't a good thing.  ICO's that 'moon' the hardest are often the ones with good ideas flying relatively under the radar.
+ If a pre-ico is hyped too much, it probably won't be the best ico...

If you installing Windows need to download/buy a program to protect against viruses to keep your computer safe from hackers and malware. Linux has built-in security system. So I think it is not necessary to switch to Linux, you can just buy a good virus scan for Windows.

For me, before to invest anything in ICO, I first do those things:
- check ICO idea;
- Is the Idea inovative and will it change something in the world;
- when the project will end (end day)
- who are in the team? Are they experts from different areas?

Probably for me, the last question is the most important, because if there are experts from different areas they will handle more eassily new unexpected thing when they occur durring the project.

try to buy only major coins and be aware of holding your coins-tokens at exchange. Buy a hardware wallet and forget your investments for years.
Enjoy your day time job and spend your time with your family.
Come back after few years and enjoy your earnings this is the safiest way to get profit in crypto

I fully agree with every point about which you are speaking. I think I'll add these items to my checklist when I edit it next time. Thank you.

I can add 1 tip from this forum. Recommend to look for the information about the team and its participants in social networks. Skam projects tend not to show the real personality.

I will say more about the research of team profiles in social networks.
Be sure to look at the date of registration of the account - if it is later Ethereum ICO then this is an occasion to reflect. Some fraudulent teams create false profiles in the social networks to deceive investors. If the date of registration is earlier than the Ethereum ICO - then the chance to stumble upon a normal team increases. Why? Because ETH was the first ICO and before that people did not know that it was possible to attract investments in this way and create false accounts for this.
