BASIC CRITERIA PROTOCOL FOR EVALUATING INVESTMENT
In order to analyze the interactions and connections between indicators, they have to be put in absolute values in mutual relations. For the needs of a potential ICO analysis we usually come across the sorting of indicators into criteria groups that measure a specific aspect of company's_ financial health The following are the indicator criteria groups:
Crypto investment process is very similar to early stage private equity investment. Understanding the end market that the ICO is disrupting will provide significant insight into the addressable opportunity for the ICO, who the competitors that are being displaced are, and whether the end market needs a blockchain solution.
Investing in ICOs requires understanding of senior management. There needs to be confidence that the management team has the business expertise to execute on their roadmap. Also important is how well the management communicates with the crypto community to generate interest and use cases.
Strength of the advisory board. The advisory board members is a team of experts in their fields that give insight and guidance to management about the best ways to launch the product successfully.
Management/employee vesting periods need to align with investors. This is important because it shows which management team is there for the long term to make sure their products succeeds.
Understanding the underlying technology of the ICO, and future roadmap. It is necessary to be clear on how the business will monetize their blockchain technology to fund future projects. Part of this process will be to look for ICO with established concepts and early stage revenue.
An ICO must have clear milestones. The investment made into an ICO would be released based on milestones achieved. If a milestone is missed, investors have the option to get the remaining investment back.
