Images and names of all developers on project, coins developed and released by hidden developers are way more likely to be scam or eventually loosing overall value. A good sign is team with experianced members who produced previously successful projects.

Thank you for such a great explanation, there is no doubt a very proper use of your research work to invest into some good ICOs without being fooled. But don’t you think that there are people who will try to misguide you?

For e.g. I have currently participated in HashGains ICO, I checked everything and purchased their tokens, and after that, I joined their telegram group and what I found was various people using the admin's name texting me from the same group and asking to transfer some of my funds to other address. I was convinced at a point but then again read the text, as they were scams and trying to take some portion of my investment.

This shook my trust and I deliberately started inquiring them when will my tokens get transferred. One of the admin took things personally and within 2 hours my tokens reflected in the dashboard.

People literally are posting them a scam, but I have received my tokens already.

Thus, it is good if you do a proper investigation of the project and their scope in the future and beware of fake people who are trying to fool you in the name of the company. Directly Contact the firm through their portal or their media channels where they are present officially and stay away from the scammers

Yes good to read, I would also add that team is important and looking through comparing web-pages, they are often useful, but pay attention that rating should not be paid.

I'm curious what people look for when they mention "a good team".

For instance, I am launching my own ICO soon. I am not planning on launching my product with a large marketing team or a panel of advisors because I've actually run multi-million dollar businesses in the past and am also a certified developer and enterprise architect.

I work for Google right now and am heavily interested in blockchain and A.I.

If you took a look at my site: www.koios.ai would anyone actually invest in the project at first glance?

Yeah actually being a expert of marketing it does not mean that you don’t need a team because most of project has a team working with it , because one of the criteria that investors are looking is the good team working the project specially their credentials.to be recognized as a legit project their must be a team working with it.

I'm not sure you quite understood me. I am not going to be employing a large marketing team or a set of advisors. I've built products for large tech companies before and I want to keep the team as small as possible in the formative stage. Quantity doesn't necessarily mean quality.

But if a large team is what the general investor community are looking for then I guess my project won't be of interest to them as I'm keeping the numbers small on purpose. Appreciate your input though, thank you very much Smiley

Need to carefully read about the project in white paper.good ico is depends of a road map of a ico .The best way to choose the good ICO was to study first the back ground and history of that ICO.

Check the team, reach out to them and communicate. Check the white paper, especially terms of the token sale, token allocation and road map. Take into account if there's any product already. Monitor their activity on different conferences and in social networks... In other words, monitor the project closely for some time. If you consider a good investment, of cource, not just $200-300

ICO's nowadays are number one money making system if you know how to make money from cryptocurrencies.
I myself investing on ICO's and they even returned me 10x of my investment. by the number of return you know how crazy the profit is!! But there is the question if the ICO' didn't hit exchange and didn't pass the test for exchange or simply the project is scam what will happen? The answer to the question is you loss your all money which you invested on the ICO. That is the truth about the ICO. So rude right?

Here is a solution,
1) Always invest what amount you afford to loss.
2) Do your own research about the coin before investment (don't listen anyone blindly because he
may also missing the key info)
3) Get to know about the project and know what will be the use of this token.
4) Always read the whitepapper and read Road map of the coin/token.
5) Follow them on social medias like twitter/facebook and on Telegram chat. I mean whole over the
Internet and collect peoples thoughts about the ICO.


That's it, you now know the basics of how to research about any ICO's.

Always try to find your own way to justify any ICO.
Upvote,Re-steem and follow and reply your own strategy so that we each other will learn new tips and strategy about selecting new ICO's.

THANKS for reading through.
if you find this helpful don't forget to Smerit my profile.

This is a good advice me ether dont follow in some sugestions only by any people in the internet they are also promoting that ICO. The most good option is to study and read more about the whitepaper and people who back up this project.

KickCity project plans to develop itself into a global network with a decentralized platform that brings people into communities based on the principle of reward. It is worth to pay much attention to information of this company and take an active part in its development.    Token Sale begins on 1st March 2018.  Why not?

One of the key problems of many ICO projects is the inconsistency of the declared plans and real opportunities. The project can be revolutionary in nature, but not feasible on the technical side.

How can I check this? You should carefully study the white paper of the project. Even if you are not well versed in the relevant topic, the lack of structured and detailed information on the implementation of the project will catch your eye.

Their are many criteria when choosing an ICO. you need to look at several factors like, the team( how solid the team are), the token metrics , whether it has a working product or about to be launched , nice website , good social media presence ( telegram, twitter, Facebook ) exposure, and also, the amount to raise.

These are the factors while trying to choose a good ICO.

Check if there is a "TEAM" tab, and investigate on the team.

Also Ethereum is kind of framework, the company should have a beta or something already otherwise I dont know what they are coding.

~~~
well-thought on the post. I wish I could sMerit.

Sorry brother, Merit System is a failure of this forum.
- It's not a failure in fact it already done a great deal of improvement. The idea of merit bringing on the table was very much necessary for the forum however you can blame the application label. It needs to be improvise to work better.

Be happy be at peace. Looking forward to BTC at $1M

Look at the team, make research, look if the people in the team are even real or information about them are real (there are many scams), check the previous projects of the team and their process. The key point is making research, not taking advices in any forum and take action accordingly, but pure research.

Well, firstly we have to say, that every ICO have 4 stages of development. Before the starting ICO research you have to understand that stages.

Let me explain:

Stage 1. Just an idea. People do not have anything. People create a branch, make lending and moving forward Smiley You will be surprised, but such projects even collect money!

Stage 2. The White paper. Slightly deeper - people wrote an article, described their project. It is easier here - you can assess the adequacy of the authors and the possibility of implementing the idea. Understand the quality of the material.

Stage 3. The stage where the project has Github, and the minimum code (any working prototype will work).

Stage 4. With the full operation of the project and the software, and people need additional liquidity.

in essence it really should be as you say. but not everyone is trying to do it
basic knowledge is the most important part of any investigation and analysis. experience plays an important role to compare ico who really has a good chance. I myself am still learning that

This sums up everything you need to check before investing in an ICO. Team and idea is the most important.

Due to the fast growing development of crypto, we cant escaped from some groups of people destroying the image of this community. FUDs and scam projects are coming out. We cant imagine how fast to make money in crypto and some individuals may just make a way to benefits from others especially to those people who are new in here. It takes time for them to learn and they might get educated from their experience.
