I have invested in ICO's and if I see one I like I may invest one in the future as well.

Mainly bitcointalk, I do not invest into anything I do not read on here, as long as it is here and has a topic with bunch of pages I can check what other people talked about the ICO and react accordingly. First of all it must have a good idea, secondly the support must be important and thirdly the price must be reasonable. Rest is just details. Definitely the team and the idea, those are the most important aspects of it. History of the team.

I'm looking for ico projects on proven sites and ask experienced hunters. The main thing in the project can be a team, how many have already collected funds for the time of call in the project, as presented and what offers-which product or service. I carefully fetch white paper. Wink

Investing in an ico will have lot of risk, before investing just go through the project details, white paper, road map, team members. Because nowadays many scam ico's are coming be careful before investing in an ico.
I agree.Only few of the ICOs today are just the real ones who give us good bounty payments and most of them are already scam.So it might be too risky especially for newbies to invest in an  ICO.

Investing in an ico is possible through different forms of payment modes from debit cards to cryptocurrencies. With most ico's btc and Eth were the accepted payments. Also, you'll receive the tokens only after the ICO, so should not get into panic once after sending payment for the tokens.

Find out everything you can about the team, especially the development team and the advisory board. Search each team member for relevant experience. Use Google to find out their profiles and visit their Linkedin profile. It is highly recommended that you read the message carefully in the project announcement thread (ANN) on BitcoinTalk.org. Evaluate the project phase, find this information usually on the main page of the project website. Evaluate the whitepaper, Don't hesitate to read it, or at least most of it, because it contains all the important information about the upcoming project and ICO.

Yes, there are more risk for buying coins at an ICO than to buy coin which are already in the exchanges because coin in exchanges are already secure. But what is more advantage of buying coins at the ICO? I think because its more low value than if its already listed in the exchanges and with that its obvious that there are great profit if we buy coins during ICO just set in mind that everything in crypto currency is like gambling that no assurance but still opportunity to be profitable is having more percentage.

This topic has been discussed how many times in the forum, but still, I always heard the word risk in investing in ICO and some other say that avoid investing they are probably scam. No, that is not true even there are a bunch of projects now emerging but still, there are some other having a potential for investing. Yes, OP was right, checking all documents and team that they had before planning to invest. You can ride the risk if you know how to research before engaging in their project and invest.

i hope this helps :
1. Not yet. Have not thought of that yet
2. a) Forum; b) Team
3. f) Support (investors and partners)
4. d) History of the team and investors
Definitely, it is correct.

Whatever you have written here is all true and yes I look for almost everything that you have mentioned here. Most of the time its the forum who gives me more info about it. Its the simple way to know more abut it because many ICO's will publish their bounties here, signature campaigns and all the other ways of publishing . This mostly gives me lot of info about it and over the time you can also keep on reading many updates in the ANN thread. This is the place where all real people are discussing about the projects and thus giving us info about recent updates. Also I dont really look for team but I look for how effectively they are communicating with us over the telegram etc. Their promotional offers should be attractive and upto the mark then we can understand about it more.

If you are a good researcher then first check the ICO team and market value and the expert opinion and their ranking in the ICO bench and then investment through forum is also a good way and if you have some savings then investment in ICO is good way of making money and now the holding is strategy i am following.
Economic tokens are still relatively new, and the ability to use them in any capacity has not been achieved. This token owner will realize that the ability to spend it will largely determine how valuable the investment is at first.

Initial coin offering is becoming very stressful business these days. Stressful ? Well, ICO may look best investment of all time at the first time. However, as you start investing your money into ICO you will realise that you have jumped into the sinking boat which have no lifeboat at all. The more you go into it the more you will see how difficult it is to manage your investment into it. You will first come to know that when they will sit the coin over the exchanger is not mentioned and when you ask them then they will keep reasoning you about it. If after hard time has passed and the coin has got listed then you will realise that the price of coin is very very less as compared to what it was at the time of your purchase. Thus, things go wrong and doesnt come as expected.

Before investing in any ICO you have to check everything about ICO’S legitimacy, for that you have to deeply study the project, check social media record of that project which will show you popularity of the project.

After this if you are satisfied with that project then you can invest in project.

Stay away from ICOs. Most of them are scams and some are below their ICO price shortly after they listed on exchanges. We are at bear market that make the odd for a successful ICOs are a lot worse.

Yeah I think so since we barely to see successful icos recently and it just made the community more awful as obviously it just die eventually.

Honestly, I'm staying away from icos as much as I could and if I really want the token badly, I just wait for it to get listed and buy from those dumpers.

I always look at the product, if it's something new that can really have a real usage in the community and definitely not just an app. The team and social media page is always a must look.

I have my own way to choose an ICO, I always analyze an ICO through ICO assessment (ICO tracker) which already has high level of trust and popularity, after that I see the background and profile of the team, then the website and whitepaper

I agree and disagree with the people calling icos scams... Right now we are in a bear market and people do not trust icos because nobody is regulating icos. If you get scammed, you can do nothing. But soon with ico 2.0 these scams will be a thing of the past and investing in icos will become safe. At that point, in half a year to a year when we finally have regulations, thats when icos will be HUGE again. Right now only invest if the project looks very legit and very promising.
