There are many cryptocurrencies out there, just as there are many ICOs. Every one of these ICOs has one unique feature – a vast majority of them are reliant on the Ethereum platform. A typical ICO project will have a website and a whitepaper that contains the entirety of information about the project as well as its objectives.
The ICO market is very risky. As such, you need to do thorough research before investing in it and to protect your hard-earned capital. In the same vein, the ICO market is not regulated. Therefore, you can do little to gain back your capital if it falls into the wrong hands.
