What are the risks of contributing to an ICO?

Admin No Comments

When you contribute to an ICO, there is never a guarantee that the product whose tokens you’re buying will succeed, either with their ICO or in their future development. Like any crowdfunding campaign, people should think of contributing as a donation to a project in support of its potential development, and the tokens as a kind of reward for your support. However, in the case of an ICO campaign, your reward (tokens) has the potential to increase in value once the tokens are released and available on exchanges. Bottom line, each particular ICO also has their own terms and conditions for contributing, so be sure to check those out before donating.

Usually products are blockchain-based technologies, but the crowdsale model is increasingly being used for other kinds of projects as well.
