As over 80% of ICO fail, Global Spy provides much-needed due-diligence. With benefits.
The cryptocurrency industry is one of the fastest growing industries. Just a decade ago, it was simply a white paper proposing the creation of such a platform. Now it is a $600 billion industry based on last year’s capitalization values. As a result, thousands of investors are diversifying their portfolios with cryptocurrency assets.
Consequently, the number of cryptocurrency coins and tokens being launched has substantially increased. Estimates indicate that the number of ICOs and cryptocurrency startups increased by 40-fold from the 2016 numbers. This increase in cryptocurrency assets and ICOs presents a problem to the average investors.
The need for prudent due diligence
Unfortunately, more than 80 percent of ICOs fail within the first year leading to losses for investors. The high failure rate of cryptocurrency startups can be attributed to several factors that include:
- Lack of a unique proposition. Many cryptocurrencies simply replicate the offerings of other altcoins. Many of them are trying to be the new Bitcoin or Ethereum, and this is a sure path to failure.
- Poor technical execution. Even if the startup has a unique idea, the success can be influenced by how the blockchain is technically created. Many expert cryptocurrency investors look at the algorithms, smart contracts and the technical soundness before investing.
- Poor entry strategy. Cryptocurrencies require an effective market entry strategy before they are accepted. Just creating a white paper is not enough for a cryptocurrency to gain the traction in the community required for a successful launch. An effective marketing and bounty campaign greatly influence the success.
The highlighted issues are quite crucial in determining the success of a cryptocurrency asset or security. Unfortunately, very few investors have the skills to analyze cryptocurrency assets and startups before investing in them adequately. As a result, many investors lose millions by investing in the wrong program.
