1. Who are the token issuers as marketing to?

It is to be keenly noted where are the main targets of the advertisements? Is it towards the investors or towards the users?

Also, make an observation that if they are following the FOMO policy?


2. Is the team credible?

The success of any particular project mainly depends on the quality of the team members.

The project must contain a clear-cut and an in detail information about each and every team member along with their social media links in order to judge their credibility.

The token must be able to differentiate itself from the cryptocurrency coins or any other form of currency. The features of a token should be entirely different from the features of any cryptocurrency.


7. Who are the competitors in the field?
