Q: What are the Key Areas to evaluate to determine a crypto projects viability?

A: There are 5 BASIC areas to consider: 

1. WHITEPAPER - Look at the projects website, find the whitepaper and read the SUMMARY or ABSTRACT. Is the paper THOROUGH or does it look RUSHED like it was completed in an hour? What are the crypto projects USE CASES?

2. TEAM - Look at the teams background to see if they have a good balance of experience in management, developers, marketers with past success. 

3. FINANCIAL BACKING - Do they have deep pockets funding their project? This implies BIG companies have also done their research and are backing them. 

4. ACTIVITY - Look at their GitHub page to se if they are OPEN-SOURCE and actually LAUNCHED the project. Also look at the activity in their community social media sites. 

5. LIQUIDITY RATIO - Daily Trading Volume divided by Market Cap. Video example was THETA which was: 

Market Cap: 750,755,003 divided by

Daily Trading Volume: 98,775,255

= 8% (Aim for AROUND 10%)

Video Time Stamp: 03:21 - 09:26

Q: What are the 3 Methods for DYOR?

A: There are 3 ways to research: 

1. Manual - This is where YOU put in the time and work to determine a projects viability. 

2. Use Ian's A.I. site called Token Metrics. 

3. Combination of BOTH. I personally like to get AS MUCH information as I can before I invest because there is nothing worse than investing in a project and finding out it's WORTHLESS!

Q: What did Ian learn from his mistakes of the 2017 ICO craze? 

A: That people can game the system and there are SCAMS everywhere. There are a LOT of things to consider before jumping in as an investor into ANY crypto project so DYOR and when you think you're done, do MORE!

The idea is that you take an NFT, in this instance, the ghost avatars, and wrap them around cryptocurrency (this can be ETH, DAO, POLY) and this unit acts like a digital piggybank in which you can earn yield.

What is Farcana?

Farcana is a web3 game that is about to launch its token. It's a mix of traditional gaming and blockchain technology.

Is Farcana free to play?

Yes, the game is free to play, but there are in-game purchases that can be made with the Farcana token.

What are the benefits of buying the Farcana token?

the Farcana token is a good investment opportunity, as the game has a lot of potential and the token supply is limited.

What are the risks of investing in Farcana?

Some of the risks mentioned in the video include the competition in the market and the unknown tokenomics. It's a high risk/high reward sort of mentality, which means we must include the flip side to that coin: be aware you can lose a great deal, too.


Corrections to video:

1. FARCANA TOKEN SUPPLY is 5 Billion and NOT 50 Million as reported in the video. (more supply = less scarcity but good for the ecosystem).
2. FARCANA TOKEN DISTRIBUTION is 25% to investors and NOT 2% as reported in the video. (good news as not as much concentration)
