I'm really not sure why such an article specifically for ICOs is actually necessary because people who start cryptocurrency projects should already know how to create documentations and thesis papers in the first place, but whatever. This is for the people who want to make money from creating unnecessary cryptocurrencies and ICOs I guess.

If a person doesn't know how to write a whitepaper, it means they shouldn't be doing it in the first place. Whitepaper is a technical document, it should be written by the developer. Any project that uses services to write a whitepaper for them is 100% a scam, because it's a sure sign that they don't plan to deliver any product, just grab investor's money and run. Writing whitepapers is not something a beginner would ever do, so I don't get what's the point of this article.

The very beginning of a white paper would also be a good section for placing a legal notice or a disclaimer, which should contain any important restrictions or notifications. These may be about exempting certain countries’ residents from buying the project’s tokens due to local laws, or simply letting future investors know that the investment itself won’t guarantee profits.

Perhaps one of the most important steps in writing pretty much any document is writing a compelling introduction. A good move would be presenting the introduction in the form of a letter from a CEO addressing future token holders.

This section is where you need to outline the problem that your project intends to solve, providing an explanation of why is this problem important, and maybe even touching upon the consequences of not solving it.

This is where you need to grab the reader's attention, explain the benefits of reading the document and provide an overview of what they can expect from it. Use any tool available to do so: charts, graphics and so on.

Need to have information, a path and goals to convince users, about the future that the project will go. A bright path will bring more trust than a dead end. In addition, plagiarism can happen, so to be able to evaluate wpp of certain ICOs, you need to read many wpps of many different projects and remember them.

It is bad to provide such tips for beginners, you are talking about general points but don't explain how to write a white paper? If you are a beginner, it is assumed that you could write a white paper after reading the above article which is incorrect.
In the last year at many universities, students learn how to write such papers.

Maybe veering off-topic slightly, but there are a lot of scam projects about these days, and sometimes these can identified by their white papers.

White papers are obviously technical by nature, but at the same time they should be understandable and make sense. Sometimes with scam projects the white paper is just a mess of crypto buzzwords that is either vague enough to not really say anything, or makes outlandish claims that don't make any sense. And sometimes the white paper has parts copy/pasted from other white papers.

White papers should show clearly how the project is supposed to work, how it will develop and improve over time, and how it will generate money. If it doesn't do all of these to your satisfaction, then stay away.

Lest you forget, ICOs appear to be things of the past. The article is just repeating stuffs people already know and then trying to sell themselves by adding that they can write Whitepapers for clients... Doesn't make sense to me considering the fact that the ICO Industry/Market isn't booming anymore

This is for the people who want to make money from creating unnecessary cryptocurrencies and ICOs I guess.
It's not always needed, but during the ICO phase, most popular and successful ICO's had whitepapers or other documents that described what their project was about, and what a timeline would look like.

If you compare it to traditional investments, it would be a business plan that the company would show possible investors.

I personally still don't think they are very needed, I'd much prefer an MVP (minimum viable product), other then just some random 20 page document.

As someone who previously checks every ANN thread and read the content of the WhitePapers (to check if its plagiarized), the team behind the project, the downloadable links, and the website, the WP is indeed one of the indicatives if the project is a scam or not.

Usually, legit projects contain WhitePapers that are over 30-40+ pages with references at the end. They provide all the essential details of their project including their mission, vision, and their goal by the years. Once you see a project without such elements, then it would be an indication that the project might be a scam.

It depends on your project goals! First of all, introduce what is relevant to your project, followed by the problems users encounter. Next introduce your project, features, advantages, how the project works, ... technical information, roadmap, amount to be mobilized, partners, ....

Without certain knowledge in this area, you are unlikely to be able to do it yourself. At least for the moment. At least initially you need to study some live examples and only then try. But the best option is to hire professionals.

No need to fool anyone, ICO whitepaper is written in same way as new ICO is created, copy-paste.
Copy paste bitcoin code, change name and coin limit, you have new coin. Now you copy-paste bitcoin whitepaper, change name to your coin name and pretend its yours.
No idea how so much people fall for this ICO scam. Bitcoin is biggest revolution since internet, and people think some new "invention" will challenge bitcoin? Its one in 40 years invention.

The funniest thing is that people who want to write a whitepaper of their new currency, which copy-paste (of course) are not even going to bring something new to this world, but simply want either to perpetuate their name or simply to deceive people and make money.
Why if you don’t have enough mind to just buy a finished project for 300 bucks without asking questions trying to do something in field which you have no idea?

I find it interesting if not laughable from people who dismiss importance of a whitepaper to a business or project. Whitepaper writing has been in existence and there are experienced whitepaper writers contracted by companies not just in crypto or blockchain industry but overall in any discipline you may think of. Simply, a whitepaper is a persuasive document meant to give an in-depth discussion of a problem and solution. Note this is applied as a general rule in copywriting when completing any whitepaper. Several reasons exist why one would need a whitepaper including marketing as applied in the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry.

Then why ICO whitepapers for ICO, STO, IEOs etc?
1. Not everyone can write a coherent document in as much as they possess technical skills or understand the project better. So the argument it should be written by developers or team members it is ok, but not everyone can do it.
2. Contracting a whitepaper writer, is known to give core team members more time to focus on other important technical requirements of the project. Focus on what you do best.
3. If you are launching a project targeting a global market, therefore, you need an expert who is able to communicate this professionally, and engage the target readers. Remember, not everyone has the capability to write and persuade an audience owing to language barrier and other writing challenges.

I can go on to mention or argue why whitepaper writers are important not just for the crypto industry but as an industry on its own. Serious investors at 72% according to a report I came across online attribute their decision making to invest in a project after reading a whitepaper.

However, the problem many projects in the crypto space are facing is plagiarism mainly due to people who are only after money and produce weak plus poor documents. I am of the opinion being in this industry for a while not just writing crypto and blockchain whitepaper but also other industry whitepapers, there is no pre-determined structure of writing a whitepaper. It depends on target market, intended message and the industry, thus, a whitepaper should be tailor made to fit specific needs of a business or project.

That is my two cents on whitepaper writing especially within the crypto space. Its possible to enumerate more but I need to run and attend other issues typing over the phone at a times is tiring.  For consultation on whitepaper writing add me on telegram @ICO_Services, Skype: ICO_Services always available check my recommendations and engagements in the industry also via LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/stowhitepaperwriter/.

I find it interesting that somebody gives a shift about whitepapers right now.
You can buy them a dozen a dime and 99% of the investors are too dumb to go beyond the second paragraph!
Do you know why I read whitepapers? To find plagiarism and scam ICOs!
You'd be amazed how many have posted how great that idea is how innovative and what good ratings it has on ICO sites and in reality...

Persuade to get tricked by fancy words.
Have you read satoshi's paper? I'm willing to bet on no!

If a project right now would come with a copy of it most of you ICO lovers would say the whitepaper is too small, it does not have fancy drowning, its stile is too simple...
Whitepapers don't have to persuade (again I'm emphasizing on this word) anything.

The above statement I wish to address it as follows:
It is clear you did not read my statement very. My premise was on the use of whitepapers, and seems you did not understand it. I wont judge you as it is common with most crypto guys who think they know everything about this industry. However, my point was whitepapers existed prior to birth of cryptocurrencies and perceived fame of blockchain. Just do research on this some of us been doing this for the longest time possible.

Serious investors and users of a product will go through a project's documentation which includes whitepaper, one pager, and or pitch deck which in this case it was a pitch for use of whitepapers. This is where most of the guys have gone wrong not investing time to research about a project either thinking they know it all and the so called know it all being used to shill a project thus conning unaware investors.

On whitepapers dont have to persuade, check the definition and role of a whitepaper not just within the crypto space take your mind on a learning tour and you will be amazed on how much you will learn. There is a difference between persuasion and using buzz words or hype explanations to win investors to a project. Not even a single whitepaper I have written where I encourage my clients to use history of cryptos and how they promise a bright future and all that shit words. Let's focus on why your project, what is the solution and why should it be on a blockchain etc.

Adding on whitepapers should PERSUADE and this is what was achieved by Satoshi Nakamoto which I read not just once but every moment I am travelling. So I guess that answers your question on whether I know or have read Bitcoin whitepaper lol. I guess I know and understand more about Bitcoin than most would think because with each session I am persuaded more on its objectives and goals and where we are now, how SN forecasted challenges faced by many "crypto" at the moment and measures put in place. As well as coupling the WP with other recent developments within the Bitcoin Network, everyday its a learning experience for me I didnt finish.

About advertising my services I am happy and proud of what I do so this wont stop not now. Thank you though for your sentiments  Grin Grin Grin
