Always, do it! Reading 'manuals ' has changed my workflow totally. Yes it takes more time but you get so much better insight if taking a few minutes before starting exploring. A good examples of such platforms: Coingy, Tradedash, Newscrypto... thank me later!

I don't always read ToS during signups or registration especially during exchange sign up. I don't move huge funds and I don't violate common rules of exchanges.
And I know there's also a lot of people who are just contacting the support of particular website arguing about the problem they encountered and once the support quoted their TOS before creating an account, what a really huge facepalm  Cheesy

Once happened to me before, it's been long since I used the exchange so I deposited on it the my funds was locked and I was told to complete KYC before I could trade or withdraw.

Yes, I always read terms of service, it's very very important! Even when I register on the reliable exchanges like CoinDeal or Kraken, I always read. I know that reading such terms is just boring, but it's good to know them... Do not register everywhere, there are a lot of scams in the cryptocurrency world.

As much as I want to agree that I read every terms and agreement in every site before I click on the agree button, I have to be honest, I have never read any terms and agreement in any website because they just seem too long and are one of the most boring things you could ever read, infact I just discovered now that some people actually take the time to read it, I know it is probably a good idea to read it before agreeing to anything, but it just seems so tedious, I will endeavour to start reading it anywhere money is concerned.

To be honest I just skip the terms and conditions when entering into a new site but if I am going to deposit or trade huge amount of money there I will look at the terms to avoid any loss of money because many fellas lost their money in cryptos just because of their small and unknown mistakes.

I usually only read the "Terms of Service" when I want to know something specific. I never read the whole thing, because I know it is a waste of time. If you really want to use that service, then no "Terms of Service" is going to hold you back. You would rather hope that you do not run into trouble and just shoot from the hip... right.

In any way, I never deposit large amounts of money into any website or even exchanges, so it is not a train smash if I lose a little bit of money, if and when I break the specifications or rules in the "Terms of Service".  Roll Eyes

The fastest and easiest way to get very important things on any platform is to read its FAQs. FAQs contain most common questions and of course most important things for customers.
After reading FAQs, if there is something unclear or need more details, let's jump into the ToS and find the section of things you are interested in and want to find out more.

I usually check the faq if it is present, it often has the most important parts of the ToS. If I do have to read ToS, I use ctrl + f and search for keywords like KYC, country restrictions, transaction limits and so on. I already have some small amounts of coins stuck on exchanges that allow deposit for everyone, but require KYC to withdraw - a very scummy practice if you ask me.
Indeed reading the whole ToS or FAQ is something that I believe more than 99% people who gonna use certain platform skipped it, not just because they are lazy but they knew things just for formalities, the ToS would be about general thing which we do understand already (at some point it feels like wasting time) but of course it's important especially when it's involved a huge amount of money ... it's a must for you to read every single word on ToS and FAQ.

Other than that, I would doing ctrl+F ... looking for the part that I consider it's important, just like what you do Grin

On the legal point of view sadly terms of services, user agreements, and terms and conditions are legally enforceable once both parties (the service and the user) agreed on the online list of conditions given by the service itself. 

Not really or at least not in the European Union.
We have a directive on what is called "Unfair contract terms".
Most companies and especially exchanges around here think that they can put anything in their T&C and if the user agrees, then it's perfectly legal.
Well, it's not!!!

The best example is the short time notice cancellation.
The whole thing that they reserve to change the terms without notice or cancel their service is pure bs, under European law you have to give the client enough time between the notice and the actual cancelation of the services so that it will not cause financial or any other harm.
And unfair terms are not binding by EU law, so any judge will take a piss on that in court.

I used to put on sporting events and one of the conditions of entry was signing a disclaimer.

It was very striking that only 10% at most took the time to read it. Everyone else signed it without looking.

They could've been signing away their house or testicles and there would've been no possibility of contesting it.

I usually read the FAQ more than the TOS but if it is something related to money investing and finance I take a time to read it, but sometimes they all have the same TOS I just scroll them and review because it's to long and some wording their are just the same like all the other TOS but you must read and be familiar at least on the site where you are active the most

FAQs is a very shorter version of ToS. FAQs collect and present very vital sections of ToS. From FAQs, if you want to get more details, more explanations from platform's owners, let's move to ToS, that is much longer written.

For me, with very important things, I usually double-check both FAQs and ToS. Sometimes, platform owners forget to update both FAQs and ToS so they are potentially have different minor details (due to inconsistent updates for both).

I also always wear these before using the new platform After researching different places the scam can be reduced somewhat I love reading CryptoNews and the latest updates I also watch videos many times. New exchanges should take a long time to see the sites  they take a little longer to learn.

Some TOS' is just the same I just read run them over to check if some new entries are created from all the other sites that I sign up with, there is software that automatically creates a TOS for your websites only differ in names, but always pay attention about refund and chargeback when you are investing or paying in a finance website, this is just to make sure.

I don't know that there are softwares to do that like you said but will site owners really need such softwares? I don't think they need it. It is very easy for them to copy ToS or FAQs of another well-known site and modify according to their own policies.

It is the point to start discovering highly potential scam sites too. If you find plagiarsims from their ToS or FAQs, let's think deeply about their legitimacy.

Even a scam site, their owners will modify plagiarised ToS and FAQs in order to build up their own rules, that protect them but help them more easily to scam their users.
