Now a days we have seen tons of ICOs coming without any product support so if you invested in those than you would get nothing out it. so before taking consideration of any ico you will have to do research of particular ico otherwise you will be in trap of risk.

There is no business that has no risk, neither does the ICO business. This needs to be considered before you enter the world of ICO, which is the financial risk that you invest. Besides being able to provide very high profits, ICO also gave big money. As an example of the most fatal loss, ICO coin developers do not run the project in accordance with the initial plan or funds that have been collected by the developer. There is also no loss too much at the ICO price. This is due to a lack of interest in coins, prices cannot increase. Therefore ICO is at risk, not all ICOs will succeed or fail.

The proliferation of scam ICOs is the reason why skme governments did not their citizens to take part in such kind of investment. Other governments that been allowing ICOs are now planning to regulate any initial coin offering in their countries to screen them and reduce the risk in investing on them. Investing on ICO is more risky than on IPO of stock market so you need to make a full research first.

ipo has been regulated by government with legality and laws, in contrast to ico, many ico only collect money from investors and eventually they run away. and now there are many like that

ICO is risky because they are discouraging bounty hunters from prolonged ICO, delayed exchanged listing, and delayed token ddistribution. That is why a lot of people are now quitting in ICO because of this kind of situation.

It's a risk only for those who are new to investing in ICOs as they most likely to still doubt and be afraid, while some were just lack of researches about the project they're trying to invest hence ending up being scammed.

And it would never a risk if you would really do look and seek further researches with the project and team's legitimacy, before investing in it.

Many scam projects run ico, and therefore investing in ico has a high risk. But not all ico projects are scams, and therefore do research first on the ico project that you will choose for investment.

   With one thing I agree with you, there is no business without risks, neither investment. Before investing in ICO`s people needs to be aware in one thing
we all invest in start-ups! What is start-up? Something that is on very beginning! What can happen in month or 10 years we don`t know. We invest in
team that can carry their idea and develop project until it reaches full power, or not.
   Many ideas fail cause of many factors. Not all of them can be good, not all of them can be successful. When you invest think about what you invest in
and give it a time to develop.

The part of doing your own due diligence of a background check on the ICO is very important. A good check study should be conducted to check on the history of the team, advisors of the project and know the level of credibility that can be awarded to them. The future prospects of the project should also be considered. All these and much should be adequately checked to reduce the risk in ICOs.

ICO projects have entered our lives with an incredible pace last year. People who follow the market very closely through these projects have very serious boilers and users who do not follow the market too could only hear information about projects. This investment sector, which saw a significant increase in the last year, managed to earn significant investments in the first quarter of this year, but unfortunately such investments cannot offer as much guarantee as before and cannot provide as much profit as before. Everyone can clearly see the end of the era of being rich by investing in ICO. And what risks does this investment vehicle have? Why is it not so favorable or favored by many investors today? Have you ever wondered the answer to these questions? In this article, I will tell you the answers and the reasons for all these questions.


Virtual Product

Virtual products are the first to be trusted or unreliable in ICO projects. The point to be mentioned with the virtual product word here is the expectation of profit margin return with the sale of a real and non-existent product. A token (product), which is not yet in the market, is sold to investors with a certain value. The investor thinks that when he buys these tokens, he will sell them with certain values and in some projects, he cannot go beyond imagination from some projects. In short, we are paid for a product that does not have any value yet and we think that we will sell it more profitably in the future. In this case, successful projects do not take place in some projects or completely explode in the hands of the investor.

Fancy Dreams

It is another risk factor related to the topic mentioned in a higher title. Once the project team has set a price for its product, it also tells its investors the price to sell. It is wrong to make such a clear value estimate for a product that is not yet completed or a product that has not yet been completed. As a result, each project will be successful and reach the target price and it can pass the price is not a rule. For example, let's say we get 10,000 X-Tokens for 1 ETH. The project team is going to sell this imaginary by stating that the value of these 10,000 X-Tokens will be 3 ETH. Then, we start to dream with this money. The big day is coming, and without any mishap the project is achieving success. In this case, the dreams sold to us become reality and we are doubling our money (who knows, maybe more?). But in case the project is not successful, our money is either decreasing or completely disappearing. In this case, the dreams sold to us are frustrated and have no value. This is why ICO projects sell us a dream when they actually offer investment opportunities.


Discenterless Management

The fact that many ICO projects have decentralized management is another risk factor. Since there is no center, the product to be produced or the imagination sold to us is open to many speculations. For this reason, our investments can be seriously valued with severe changes and serious losses may be experienced. It is important to note that this risk factor is present in many types of cryptocurrencies.

Law

Undoubtedly, I think many people know or predict this risk factor. In the crypto money market, unfortunately, there is no formal rule-of-law or formal legal framework (although not a few states try to take measures). Because this is not a legal framework or a rule framework, the investments in such imaginary products can be very risky for this reason. Of course, high risk means high earnings, but you are not able to do any legal action when you are defrauded in your investments. It is for this reason that many litter projects have recently made ICO and have made serious gains by making big picks.

Risk

Another risk factor that can be linked with an upper substance is trust. Since there is no legal regulation in this market, we can face many trust shortages when investing. Therefore, doing a detailed research on the members of the project team before making an investment will help us achieve a very useful result. With this research, the problem of trust will be solved and at least one risk factor will be reduced.

What is the biggest risk factor that makes you feel uneasy when investing in ICO? I am waiting for your answers with your explanations short or long.


I am always on my guard when a project, for example, cannot show a prototype for a long time. Or, for example, when there are no large investors. Among small investors, this practice has developed to follow larger investors.

ICO investments are risky because we already know that there are many scam ICO that already stole millions of dollars from investors. Additionally, it's not only ICO scams that make ICO very risky investment, it's the fact that it can fail anytime if it can't reach its target capital.

It's actually not that risky if you do lots of research.  Its risky for the idiots that throw money at anything that is hyped up with lots of advertising.
correct suggestions and opinions that you convey we must do research that is deep enough if you want to get the right ico because there are many ico that end in fraud and if the exact loss of time we use in following the ico

I guess because some ICO investment are scam because there's a lot of ICO project right now is not trustworthy. So I think it better to invest in crypto than ICO because the outcome is surely give you more profit. But even its risky yo invest in ICOs there are still some of them are worth it, just make a research and choose the ICO which you know have potential, then after that invest wisely.

If you don't believe in the ico project but you've heard to some of your friends here that you could possibly get a profit on this methods and you want to try to invest, risk will come up to you. Why? because you are deciding to invest your money in it. However, if you believe that one of the ico project has a potential things to become a successful in the near future, you will definitely invest on it without hesitation, due to the trust you have in the project which is the reason why you decided. I guess you get my point.

this condition that make investors affraid to put their money into ico projects.so we often to see many ico did not reach their target and finally project failed.

ICO investments are risky because we already know that there are many scam ICO that already stole millions of dollars from investors. Additionally, it's not only ICO scams that make ICO very risky investment, it's the fact that it can fail anytime if it can't reach its target capital.
this condition that make investors affraid to put their money into ico projects.so we often to see many ico did not reach their target and finally project failed.
people trying to get benefit from cryptocurrency market by doing wrong thing and harming other people.actually this market really give us opportunity to earn money without spend any money.if we want we could join on bounty campaign, so didnt need to make fake ico or hack wallet.

because there have been a lot of people who have been harmed because now there are many ICOs who have experienced the logging or the coins have always been destroyed after the ICO has finished, so now investors are lazy to invest again

It's actually not that risky if you do lots of research.  Its risky for the idiots that throw money at anything that is hyped up with lots of advertising.

I agree with you . Many investors simply having heard the promise of getting rich believe him and not learning anything are in a hurry to invest, but there are ICOs that, at first glance and after much study, seem promising and promising, but ultimately turn out to be a scam. There are many examples

There is a risk in investing ICO. The most important thing is that there are many fraudulent ratings that promote fraudulent ICO, and good projects underestimate the rating! That's because of such rating sites people lose money and there is fear!
