Traditionally, IPOs occur with companies that have been in business for a significant amount of time. ICOs are popular with start-ups who need to raise capital to get their project off the ground. Their whitepaper is the document which gives investors an idea and viability of their product.


A fundamental difference between an IPO (Initial Public Offering) and an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) is what the investor gets out of it. The more traditional IPO allows investors an equity share or some stake in how the organisation runs. ICOs on the other hand will give its investors tokens which come with the assurance that the value of the token will grow and the investor will profit accordingly.

The world of ICOs is transient and ever changing. ICOs begin, they finish, they disappear, some can be a huge success, some can fail. There’s around fifty happening each month worldwide (Dec 2017), so there are a lot of choices.

If you’re looking into ICOs which show some promise, you need to make an informed decision. Follow these few tips to get started:

  1. Scale down the choice by reducing your options. If you’re looking to invest, only look at the ones that are within your realm of understanding.
  2. Only invest the amount that you can afford to lose. There’s no magic formula for having a 100% success rate when it comes to investing, so only put in the amount that won’t ruin your finances if you don’t see the return.
  3. Read the whitepaper. More than once. Analyse it. Look for holes in the argument, gaps in the logic, anything that doesn’t ring true. A good whitepaper will leave you (after the tenth read!) in no doubt that it’s a great project worthy of your money and good faith.

Make sure your decision to invest is confident and well informed.

While there are risks, like any financial investment, the gains can be explosive and have created a lot of interest over the past few years as a viable way of investing.


A typical ICO works by selling a token  – which is a new digital currency. Selling these tokens raise money for the company, and if the cryptocurrency does well and goes up in value, the investor benefits. Just like the pond or dollar going up in value against each other it is about the demand and trade on those currencies which defines how much each currency is worth, relative to a base currency.

The ICO landscape is changing all the time, so it’s impossible to give a top ten list. But we can give ten top tips to make sure you invest in the right ICO.

  1. Make sure you’re knowledgeable about the industry
  2. Skip ICOs that you don’t fully understand
  3. It’s a good sign when you find an ICO which needs the blockchain in order to operate. It shows they’re not any old start-up cashing in on the ICO craze
  4. Only invest in what you can afford to lose.
  5. Read the whitepaper as many times as possible
  6. Research the key figures in the ICO. LinkedIn is a handy resource to use when you need to do a bit of investigation into someone’s career.
  7. Get clued up on the industry, subscribe to crypto newsites – immerse yourself in learning about the industry
  8. Check out business website, have a look at the design and navigation. While it doesn’t have to be the best website in the world, a business who is serious about its future will have put time, money and effort into the look and feel of its site.
  9. Transparency – the best ICOs will have complete transparency on how many tokens are up for sale, both during pre-sale and coin offering, how many will go to the team, how the funds will be used, etc.
  10. Get in as early as possible. ICOs have discounts for early investors – making your input even more valuable.
