HOW TO INVEST IN AN ICO

Published On June 5, 2018 | By admin | Technology

Looking into investing some of your funds in an ICO (initial coin offering)? The crowdfunding events that let you buy companies’ digital tokens can be profitable, but they’re also unsafe.

ICOs are very volatile and therefore are inherently riskier than your average financial instrument, however, with volatility comes with much higher chances of significant returns. And I think that’s the main reason why we’re attracted to these projects.

First, make sure you choose a substantial project to invest in. Just because a friend gave you a tip or you saw a token being aggressively promoted on Facebook, doesn’t mean you should directly jump in. Here are some of the criteria’s should be noticed before imposing an ICO company:

  1. Experience (strong crypto related experience is a bonus)
  2. The dimension of the organizational map (does it explain this large of an investment?)
  3. Social profiles (LinkedIn usually, but any others apply.)
  4. History (When did they buy the domain name? Have they worked together before?)

Not all companies need a great team to be successful. Lots of good companies survive for a very long time with a flatlined result. An ICO gives an influx of capitals to a startup company (most often), and usually, a brand new company doesn’t know what to do with this “cash” injection. Therefore the value of synergies, various abilities, and practice are a necessary part of the assessment of every ICO.

The full focus of an ICO is to fund a project’s advancement, and there is no better use case for these funds than to raise the value of an existent project. The long-term progress of token raises 10-fold if the design is already available to the public or is in private beta. The more into the development stage, the better. In this some of the points should be considered are:

  • How far along is the product for going-to-market? Are there users already testing in the sandbox?
  • What will be the use of funds? Is there a clear roadmap that makes sense? The roadmap doesn’t have to satisfy an investor but, instead of the end user of the project.
  • “Make it, and they will come” is not the correct path. Does the company have any marketing abilities and is it overly weighted on the tech side or the marketing side?

For the most part, ICOs are structured with more or less than an identical collection of variables. There will be furthermore variables in the future as many blockchain technologies expand, but for now, we should look at, Participation Size, Bonuses, Use Case of the Token.

Ultimately, the big topic: Is this project appreciable?. There are dozens of ICOs growing out each week, so always consider some of the points when examining the main project’s idea. Is There a Demand: Does this project have the right output/market burst?. Is There Competition: Is extra competitor required? Would a cash injection be used responsibly to help them excel the competition?. Is Blockchain Required: Is the use of Ethereum’s smart deal needed to achieve this raise? Does this scheme foster broader choosing of the blockchain technology?.

Lastly, before you invest, you can consult some ICO marketing agencies, and also check what the terms and conditions say for your nationality and place of residence. Residents of some countries may be prohibited from participating in an ICO. It’s sometimes possible to circumvent this, but this may be illegal and severely punishable by law.
