Well for me, it is somehow important because it includes all of the information about the project that they are trying to propose. Sometimes, the information on the whitepaper doesn't fit on the actual project itself so we also need to analyze if they are being honest on the information that they have included on it.

yep, often bad projects give investors a huge promise with x100 or x1000 vision and lots of delicious seductions from community managers. All these actions show a blatant scam. I hope that you will not have to fall into this trap and see the project as realistic as possible. In order to avoid the problem of investing in the wrong project, you should first consider whether the team is really aiming for their products, or they only aim to entice investors to buy tokens. then you should check if that project is going to be listed on good exchanges or else it's definitely fake promises.

Who among us here have been victims of almost perfect Whitepaper?
Those sublimely well-written, full of excellent ideas and proposals that turned out to be a piece of crap!
Reading whitepaper is not enough to be a basis of investing in crypto because almost everyone can write whatever they want,
they even promise you the Moon and Stars.

So, be careful now in choosing ICOs, as much as possible look for projects that at least have initially implemented the products or services, if not the whole.



This is probably the closest thing about whitepaper  Cheesy I have seen so many whitepaper that are out of this world and to good to be true, but ended out very much different from what they stated in their whitepaper, but we still need whitepaper, but don't believe on it right away there should be a good logic on those whitepaper, ask these people how close the implementation to the real thing, experts analyze a project whitepaper, for legitimacy.

The whitepaper could be more important when all project indicated there will implemented, but very sad but true, i've been saw guys offered a whitepaper job on a service section, it means they have a template for it, some sort of edting and adding some colorful words then it will become an ICO's thats why some comment here are right, we need to look the people behind the project.

I don't think the most important thing is the whitepaper for sure is important but from my opinion the most important is the address of the company who is running the ICO. Why? Cause you can check it with google maps to see if is real, some scam project were found on this way, with a fake location.
I truly agree with you. The location is of major importance and for me understanding the whitepaper and see the possibility of a true ICO behind it 
white paper is important because we can know the extension of the project but white paper can not determine that the project is a scam because behind it all we need to do further research that is more important than the white paper as to where the project and the team behind the project whether it is true or not
It has a specific role but it should not be the basis when you are looking for a project particularly these days that scammers are getting wiser, they will surely look for some other ways to take advantage of us so they can get the benefits they wanted. You can't just easily trust and believe a project even if they have provided a white paper because you can't literally assure that it was legit unless you've done your own research to make sure that it is a worth it and profitable project. Besides, you can't just depend everything on it because it is also your obligation to secure and protect your funds from scam projects. The safety of your own money depends on how you handle your decision when it comes on choosing an ICO.

I've seen where by a new project in 2019 has a not so attractive white paper and guess what it's one of the best project of that year, the name of the project is Sero, they launch their IEO on gate.io and it was profitable for investors, it's not always about whitepaper

The attached picture in this thread is enough to say how a whitepaper does matter in a crypto project. Don't trust any new ICO whitepaper's words, you can get those quality whitepapers only by spending 50-60$ in Fiverr! So, the whitepaper is nothing nowadays, ICO projects lost their potential, popularity long ago! No one believes those words in the whitepaper.

Gone are those days where you can judge the potential of any new projects with whitepaper only, nowadays you will be in the shadows if you choose new projects because of what you read on their whitepapers, there are many who plagiarized other old coins white paper and even steal contents too

These days they have even become smarter, many of these projects do away with an attractive whitepaper, instead they develop a fully working product before launching their sale and investors are hooked, then they say that the funds raised would be merely used for marketing purposes for the product, after the sales, the project just gradually fades into the background like so much white noise. It takes grace to be able to discern the genuine projects irrespective of whitepaper.

i have been a victim of a well written white papers.  Nowadays I don't give a shit about those papers anymore. If a project doesn't have good backers like angel investors or its self funded, forget about it, its all a joke to me

We all do, since it is one of the basement that we are looking before we participate or invest in an ICO. But still, you should look for it but not only on their whitepaper, but for the whole project, it is not something that we should not disregard.

to be honest until now with the whitepaper can give a little picture of what will be developed by the developers so that investors can find out how the project can be implemented and usually whitepaper is also a benchmark to determine the success or failure of the ICO.

Thats the new investors interest in the new phase of crowdfund. Show us what you got and how it could drive volume then we put our fund. Except for seed and private sale we might not see any public sale before the project is listed on exchanges in the new phase of crypto startups. It is a trend on twitter as they tweets, 'RIP to whitepaper'. Do you know how many whitepaper Mcafree wrote? just to deceive investors. I believe public sale investors are more victims than the private and trend is changing.

The thing is, aside from whitepaper, we should check the team component.  They are the people behind this project and the one that will make the whitepaper into reality.  Whitepaper is important but the ability and capability of the project developer is way more important than that.  They can present us with a perfect whitepaper but team composition will never lie on how they will deliver the product.  So I think this two. whitepaper and team composition should be thoroughly checked.

Well for me, it is somehow important because it includes all of the information about the project that they are trying to propose. Sometimes, the information on the whitepaper doesn't fit on the actual project itself so we also need to analyze if they are being honest on the information that they have included on it.

If a project does not have a whitepaper, then you have to question the existence of it at all. But then again,,, a good WP does not mean a good project. And in the same opposite way a bad WP does not mean a non profitable project. Guess the biggest example to all should be EOS. Shitty copy pasted whitepaper and people put everything in it and it still became profitable!

Even if not most importantly, i think whitepaper is quite important. You can find all information about the project on the whitepaper and check the information shared here to get an idea of the project.

I think it will matter if those project will have unique or have new idea and not just a copy right project. we encounter many scam projects in past years and non of them succeed even you read their white paper or they have great white paper they still fail at the end. so those whitepaper will matter if they are aiming to succeed and follow what is written there.

Both whitepapers and websites appearance can't be used to judge how good a project is but what the project has to offer the public, real use cases is what defines the potential of new projects, whitepapers can be easily copied so forget about them and do better research first

I think it will matter if those project will have unique or have new idea and not just a copy right project. we encounter many scam projects in past years and non of them succeed even you read their white paper or they have great white paper they still fail at the end. so those whitepaper will matter if they are aiming to succeed and follow what is written there.
Well, it'a really difficult for them to come up with a new idea since there are already a lot of altcoins existed which has various platform and usability. Thus, this results suspected plagiarized whitepapers which disgusts the investors, causing a project to fail. For this reason, whitepaper really matters.

Well for me, it is somehow important because it includes all of the information about the project that they are trying to propose. Sometimes, the information on the whitepaper doesn't fit on the actual project itself so we also need to analyze if they are being honest on the information that they have included on it.

If a project does not have a whitepaper, then you have to question the existence of it at all. But then again,,, a good WP does not mean a good project. And in the same opposite way a bad WP does not mean a non profitable project. Guess the biggest example to all should be EOS. Shitty copy pasted whitepaper and people put everything in it and it still became profitable!

Profitable does not mean successful project.  What I am trying to say is, the market can be manipulated and can the price of a token can be pumped and some maybe caught with this hype and some will profit, but a good project is the one that delivers roadmaps.  and the one the delivers those that are written on whitepaper are those that have capable developers.  Imagine, they have the fund to finish the project but many failed because they have incompetent developers.
