WINSTARS - We are changing the face of gambling

As an investor of course you are free to make choices, if you feel ICOs are not profitable then quitting is the best option, but for me ICOs are a good thing and make my money grow faster.
That is right, don't let those effort to just waste, make it a habit to know the team investigate it, join their community, make sure that they are active answering questions, that they are not making a promise that they are not keeping, and take time to read their whitepaper so you'll know if it is worth investing or not.
I find the intresting project WINSTARS. What you know about it? They make a casino on blockchain. In ICO in June they will start their gambings alfa platform. They have a very good comanda and intelligible white paper. It may will be a very strong project, after all it part of the market is empty. Dont have any casino on blockchain. They want to realise all on smartcontracts. It will be intresting.

That is why most people keep away from ICOs. It is wiser to wait for the crypto to go in the market because you can actually buy it there cheaper. Those who buy early during the ICO dump what they have bought once the coin gets listed on a decent exchange. Most investors are just dumpers, so it is really best to buy coins in the market.

you are right, sometimes we can get a cheaper price when on the market, although sometimes ico gives a bonus, but when buying on the market so much more bonus we get.
especially when the market is in a downtrend, the price of coins when listing in the market will definitely be under ico price.

Instead of quitting ICO, why not investing some time to analyze and select the right projects? Even if a lot are scams, still some good projects are on-going or will appear on the market.

I think it's better than just stopping, because ICO is growing with experience certainly more able to be careful in making decisions.

Absolutely right, these couple of months its been tough to determine what ICO would be profitable because as I have experience most of the ICO I have been is not quite good, I mean if that ICO is not scam, it could be dump maybe because they affected of FUD. But fortunately, there are still some good and trusted ICO.

The arguments you mentioned do make sense but I think if you become more accurate with choosing an ICO project then you will find the ones that are worth investing.

I decided to quit ICO's. From December till now I invested about 5 eth into several ICO's. Invest what you can miss, this is what was able to miss.

Right now the first few of my ICO's have reached the exchanges. Most are under performing, but this is related to the overall dip (can be read everywhere). I understand, but ICO token economics have changed also.

  • massive hardcaps
  • most is sold in pre-sale to big investors, leaving scraps for crowdsale
  • much attention to marketing, less to working product or realistic time lines
  • immediately available on EtherDelta and IDEX, sure sign of little interest in token economics/future
  • no lock on pre-sale tokens, whales take their x2, x3 or x-whatever as soon as possible (I would probably have done the same). Prices drop to below ICO price.
  • too many ICO's without distinctive differences.
  • too many ICO's in general
  • too much tokens reserved for team/marketing
  • many ICO's don't even have a crowdsale anymore (which perhaps is a good thing as the little investors are protected this way)
  • ICO prizes are quite high. 1eth = 1000/4000 tokens is pretty common, but with a hc of 40 million, this will not easily go x10 or more.

I was 'unlucky' to miss out on a few ICO's besides the ones I was able to participate in. Afterwards I am glad, since I was able to pick most up at a fraction of the ICO price.

Important as ever: DYOR as not all ICO's have a genuine solution to a genuine problem. Some may seem like a fantastic solution, but often it is marketing combined with a strong team, and not so much a great working product.

And who am I? I am definitely a nobody Tongue, but still wanted to share my experiences and perhaps save people from thinking of getting on board of the next x100 ICO Smiley

p.s. when a Telegram has over 20k subscribers all screaming 'when lambo' with endless rows of animated gifs, you may also wonder if this is a serious block chain solution which will revolutionize 'x' Smiley

I'm sorry to see you give up now. Yes it is a pity that you didn't spent the money or gone to 0. But I can tell you gave up too early. Since December, the market has been bearish. There was practically no turning of bulls. Accordingly, the price of coins lay at the bottom. If now the price has fallen below the ICO, then the price was already high before, you missed the peak moment. Not had time to sell or maybe he was hoping that she will grow more, but no she fell. I do not know how you have developed, but this is not an excuse for other people to give up and miss a good opportunity to earn. Just do not stop talking to everyone, participate in the bounty and combine with the purchase of coins on the ICO, so you will have more chances to make good money.

these points are better to adopt instead to leave investing in ICO as you may have missed many coins which raised higher in value on exchanges and you may regret that why you not invested in the beginning. The beginning of them are ICO and there are many more coins which will still there to make us much money.

I think most of us don't check ICOs thoroughly before we invest. Some of these ICOs don't respond to questions being asked but we still go ahead and invest. It is important to get enough information about the team and trace their track record to confirm their integrity. I still believe investing in ICOs is one of the best ways to earn in crypto.

OP makes a lot of valid points but there will always be the hidden gems that you don't want to miss. We all have to adapt to this new market situation.

I have not tried to join the ICO project, but one of my friends has tried it, and he really feels good, but it just takes time. Today, there are many ICO projects that compete in the market, and it seems for it to succeed in need of support from the market. Then if this does not work, it's bad from the members who have joined, so it's a bit risky for everyone who wants to be more profitable by joining any ICO project.
But if the interest of participating in the ICO is unstoppable, it must be with careful observation of the ICO to be elected.

Participating in ICO's is still profirable and very interesting. It only takes a long time and hardwork but you have less to worry since you can have bounty tokens at the end.  Just validate carefully to find a legit ICO.

Many people only see high returns, but they do not see the trap behind the high ICO returns! ICO's fanaticism will only bring more bubbles.
At present, the ICO industry is not clearly regulated, and the capital's profitability has caused the market to be chaotic, and the ICO project has been strictly screened to make the market tend to develop healthily.

YOu need to quit ICO forever. There is no advantage in investing ICOs. Moreover, in this year, most of ICOs have already failed. Instead of investing in ICO, you can buy real coin such as bitcoin or ethereum. They are better than ICO. Never investing in ICO Wink

This "ICO" phenomenon is overhyped. This creates a lot of speculations that drive people crazy. People just buy and sell without researching and leads to their downfall. I hope you'll find another area in which you can succeed.
Yes, there are a lot of new ICOs every day, and that will make us panic and lazy to learn about the projects. But anyway in 2018, I still see that ICO projects will be able to continue to make a lot of money

But I like these projects coming everyday if they are legit because on investment we earn a good profit from that projects.#

I do not know that why OP quit to invest in ICO for a few low value ICO investment as there are a lot of ICO which from the beginning came to know as more legit and of high potential ICOs and the investors earn a good profit.
