Points Need to be Remember before Investing in ICO 

Origin of ICO
You should note that the ICO sector was born out of a notion that conventional economics is outdated and overrated. It is a well-known fact that Initial Public Offerings (IPO) are being seriously questioned time and again. Besides being too tangled in regulations, and of course, coming in too late in a business’ life cycle, they are also quite expensive to produce any significant benefit. Companies, especially startups do not see much profit in investing in Initial Public Offerings. They might come in handy when you have to repay your investors with their capital, but they do very little to fund your business idea.
Working of ICO
In the initial coin offering system, there is usually a specific goal. Each token invested has a pre-determined price which is not subject to change during the initial coin offering period. That also makes it clear that the token supply is usually static. For example, one Ether equals to one token. Every time an ether is sent, the creation of a new token begins. Of course, one can set the goal or time frame can be defined as per needs and preferences.
Risk
There is no denying that the risk involved for investors is quite a bit. Many are currently making the switch from IPO to ICO. What is a reason for concern is that ICO does not share many similarities with IPO. So, many investors are not aware of the rules and regulations they need to abide by. There is much confusion about whether ICO is strictly legal or not. So, if you are business thinking about dealing with ICO, note that financial markets are subjected to heavy scrutiny by concerned authorities.

2018 has gotten by using it many companies planning to raise money with an initial coin offering (ICO) and, with this, has presented retail investors with a chance to pick up an experience whatever startup
There are many things that one needs to know and should be known, but to me, most important is to judge the concept and potential of it. This is where you open up your chance to gain MOST! This is exactly the strategy I follow up.

I keep myself tick on with Cryptonewstrends, it is a non-stop news website, so you are ensured to be updated with the minute to minute happening, which is just so useful to spot up right opportunities!
Good job, it is a great topic to discuss and enlighten folks about the potential scams :) Well, I would like to add few things from my experience, before investing in any project's ICO, always check there ICO website, like this gigtricks.io, the team of any project must be legit and says a lot about the project's potential success. Similarly, do check the advisory panel, as big names do not associate themselves with mediocre startups :)
I hope my response will help people stay safe from Scam ICOs!

I won’t really prefer to just invest in ICOs, as I feel it’s a lot better to go for established options. Right now, I am trading with FreshForex, where they have over 135 instruments to pick from and more so, I love it how comfortable it is with their platform with no issues over slippage or re-quote. I find it super easy using their Rebate Program, where one gets huge cashback.
