As we are all aware that all investment is speculative and involves substantial risk. Investors should consider well before investing. Accordingly, before investing in IGO platforms or any projects, token holder benefits should be something to be accounted for. Moreover, beneficial or reward percentages should be compared across other IGOs. Lastly, make sure whether the IGO’s launchpad has a warranty policy. The ones with warranty tend to have higher price, but are safer in general.
