Investing in ICOs has been increasingly popular over the last few years. While some investors are looking for opportunities to buy cheap and then resell the purchased tokens at a higher rate later on, others are looking for ways to benefit from discounts and bonuses offered by the companies starting their ICOs. Also, people tend to invest in ICOs in order to back new products and services they are going to be using in the future.
All of us remember that Ethereum cost $0,5 per coin during its ICO. Later on, the coin peaked at $1400. That’s was a real bargain. However, we should always keep in mind that investing in ICOs can be risky. Not to mention scams, an ICO may fail to back a certain project due to some code vulnerabilities. For example, The DAO was hacked and robbed of $60 million. Also, the product or service may eventually fail to comply with user requirements. It may also be poor management or pretty much any other pitfall not take into account during the ICO. That’s why sorting out ICOs is crucial for successful investing.

So, what is the difference between successful ICOs and the rest of them?
While some startups raise millions of dollars during pre-ICOs, some other startups struggle to get sufficient funding during the whole process and eventually see their ICOS fail miserably. Why is that? According to Masterforex-V Academy experts, there are several reasons for that. It’s not enough to come up with a unique idea. It has to be useful and solve some really burning problems, especially when it comes to the fields where blockchain can be applied successfully. For the most part, it’s all about making transactions cheaper and faster, eliminating intermediaries, making the service more secure and stable, and so on.
On top of that, a team of skilled professionals is also important when it comes to starting a potentially successful ICO. People who have been working in the industry for years usually know what exactly needs to be changed to make things work faster, better, cheaper, more secure etc. Some teams are hunting top managers working for big companies in order to hint at the seriousness of their ambitions.  If the team has come up with a working product, that’s a plus for the ICO. 
However, one of the key factors leading to success but often ignored by those starting ICOs is the need for a decent PR campaign. For most startups out there, it’s all about Twitter, Youtube, Telegram. However, they somehow fail to take into account the importance of appearing on news websites like Google. News. That’s one of the biggest reason why most of them end up being underfunded when their ICOs eventually expire. The bottom line is, if you are planning an ICO, never ignore news sources.
