1. Team:
Finding information about the team behind the crypto can be a good indicator of its long-term success. An experienced founder and sound team of developers is a good sign.

Check out the team’s Twitter, social media and LinkedIn pages, YouTube interviews with team members, their personal instagram or facebook profiles.

If the code is available, try and audit their GitHub.

Look at the team members' experience (in general and within the industry). Note whether the team has developed something in the past (proof of work).

Also, note how much of the crypto the team holds and how much they’ve sold, if the token sale is locked usually it means they won't abandon the project for the next X years.

Ask yourself:
- Who is the team behind the crypto?

- What experience do they have?

- Do they have experience within the industry?

- What other projects have they launched?

- Have they been involved in any questionable projects or scams?

2. Roadmap:
Within the roadmap, you can expect to find information about upcoming features or upgrades, new expected partnerships or projects, events, or plans to improve the network.

If the team has a healthy history of releases or upgrades, that’s usually a good sign as it shows that the project can deliver on what they promise.

Ask yourself:
- Does the project have a clearly defined roadmap?

- What is their actual development timeline?

- Are the goals realistic?

- Does the team have a healthy history of feature releases or updates?

- Have they fulfilled their promises on time?

- What have they delivered so far? How has this affected adoption?

3. News & Social Media:
Sound projects usually have a decent online presence. This helps them to build a solid community and promote their product. Determine the strength of the community by looking at the project’s social media channels. Not having a decent online presence is a red flag.

Read through the project’s Twitter, Discord and Telegram channels. Note how the team interacts with the community and see what others are saying about it. Evidence of a real, thriving community helps to add confidence in a project.

Also search LunaCrush and news websites and check to see if the project has suffered from any hacks or attacks in the past, also in the team's eventual previous projects.

Ask yourself:
- How many social media followers does the project have?

-What is the engagement like?

- What is the general tone among the community?

- How does the team engage with the community?

- Has the project suffered from any hacks or attacks in the past?

- Are their followers real ones or just paid bots?

We have seen that investors and internet apparenlty have a short memory, when rugpullers and plain scammers could resurface after a cooling off period and people fell into their traps, again.

Be careful, there are bad people out there, choose wisely to whom you send your hard earned money.

Always remember at which cost it came to you, be it in printed or electronic terms.
