Before you start, there is one thing you should know and always remember — “DYOR.”
What is DYOR?
DYOR is an acronym for “Do Your Own Research.” DYOR is always something you have to keep in mind before making a decision to buy or sell cryptocurrency tied to a project (or before making any financial decisions in general!). Before jumping in to buy or sell cryptocurrencies, dedicate time to research the project or coin that you are interested in.
Questions you should be asking include:
- Do the founders have a solid career background? Is the business model sustainable?
- What is the unique selling point of the project in comparison to other similar crypto projects?
- What does the project team’s roadmap look like?
