How to Analyze an ICO?

The way to make a proper research of an ICO which is based on three key points such as team, product ,and ICO information. The article presents a detailed overview of these criteria.

As token sales remain to be a grey area for most legislatures, investor protection is severely lacking. This is why you should be most careful when choosing to fund an ICO. Much like in any other field, the quality of investor diligence turns out to be the make-it-or-break-it factor, and without proper research your investment is nothing more than a bet.

So, the world of ICOs is an uncharted territory for you but you are nevertheless eager to have skin in the game. Deciding whether a project deserves your hard-earned money — which you should, of course, be ready to lose —  is usually done against three criteria: the team, the product, and the ICO information.

Team

An ICO is only as good as its team. You should be able to easily find the team profiles with sufficient information, photos, and links to their social media accounts. Look up the team members and see whether they were involved in similar projects and have appropriate experience and expertise. The number of developers is also a good indicator. The more people are working on the project, the bigger the chances of success are. Having an advisory board is also a good sign indicating a serious commitment to the project.

Project

Before you invest in an ICO, you should be aware of what the project is all about. A whitepaper is a document, which gives essential information about the startup. A whitepaper should include such points as the value proposition, business model, use case scenarios, financial data, and specifics about the token sale.

A roadmap is another source of useful information. A roadmap describes what the company will be working on a year, three years and five years from now. It should specify important milestones and intermediary objectives. You should also be presented with information on how the project is planning to use the funds from the ICO.

ICO

All relevant information about the ICO needs to be easily accessible on the startup’s official website. You should have no problem finding when the ICO starts and ends, how you can participate, what currencies are accepted, and how much the token costs. Usually, websites have a countdown towards the start (if it has not yet started) or the end of the ICO.

A properly-functioning website with good UI indicates that the creators are passionate about the project and want everything about it to be as good as possible. The website may show a video presentation, by which you can evaluate the care and attention that has been put into the project. If the video features the team members talking about and explaining their idea, it is always a plus. Pay close attention to how the company markets itself on social media: read their twitter feed and articles on Medium. Do not shy away from going on forums such as Reddit and Bitcointalk and asking the community about how they feel about the project.

Liechtenstein Financial Market Authority Approves State-of-the-Art Tokenized Real Estate Investment Product

For the first time in Europe, the Liechtenstein Financial Market Authority (FMA) has approved the offering prospectus for a tokenised real estate investment product. CROWDLITOKEN AG is thus a pioneer for new financial innovations. The Security Token Offering (STO) is now running in European countries. By using blockchain technology, qualified and retail investors are enabled to invest in first-class real estate in Europe. Also the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) has confirmed that no special regulatory approval is needed to market this new class of digital assets in Switzerland. The company CROWDLITOKEN AG, based in Triesen/Liechtenstein, is launching a security token that combines the advantages of direct and indirect real estate investments. CEO Domenic Kurt comments: “This represents an evolution in the world of financial products. New technologies are enabling us to launch a first-class product that not only offers new investment opportunities, but also remedies inefficiencies, cuts costs and safeguards transparency.”  In concrete terms, the product is a digital representation of a subordinated bond, whereby both the bond as well as the underlying real estate is digitised via blockchain. The token – named the “CRT” – replicates the income streams and the value changes of the real estate properties. Holders of the tokens can select their properties to invest in and thereby tailor their own portfolio. They will benefit from an attractive yield of 5–7% p.a. The ability to invest small amounts in selected European real estate, the easy tradability on digital stock exchanges (in preparation) and the investment flexibility are key innovative features of this unique real estate investment product.  The STO is divided into several phases. The private sale for the first 10 million tokens, which is open to all types of investors, is currently underway with a discount of 25% (equivalent to CHF 0.75 per token, 1 CRT = CHF 1.00). This is followed by the pre-public sale (20%) and public sale (10%). The minimum investment in all these phases is 100 CHF each.  CROWDLITOKEN AG targets to raise 100 million tokens through the STO, the funds will be used to build up the real estate portfolio. CROWDLITOKEN’s clear goal is to bring real estate investments into the digital era by using blockchain technology and thus democratise access to the market.  For more information, please visit crowdlitoken.com. About CROWDLITOKEN AG CROWDLITOKEN AG is a Liechtenstein-based start-up that provides investors with access to European core real estate via blockchain technology. This is based on real estate-linked security tokens – termed “CRTs” – i.e. a digital representation of a bond that returns a yield equating to 5–7% p.a. CRTs are fully compliant and combine the advantages of direct and indirect real estate investments.
