Cryptocurrency ICO for Investor: You can store your cryptocurrency in 2 ways like exchanges and private wallets.

There are different wallets options available like hardware wallet(Trezor, Ledger Nano S) that are more secure. Also, there are paperwallet(eg, myetherwallet), mobile wallet(eg, copay, jaxx) and desktop wallet(eg, exodus) etc.,
      Lets look to participate in ICO. Open the ICO company where you would like to participate(ex, and look at the team and advisors about their knowledge in blockchain industry, marketing, professionals, etc., Once you agree and support the project of that company, you can click on private sales or join the whitelist. After you signup, they will send you the confirmation email, then confirm the account to sign in to the website. Now, you can go to the dashboard and check out for early bonuses and buy the tokens with ether over the dashboard with your MEW address. In MEW, you can send ether to that ICO company. Then, you can claim your ICO tokens from the dashboard. Also, it is important to follow the instructions of the company while purchasing the tokens.
    Once, you participated in ICO, you must get regular update about the project with social media channels like facebook, twitter, telegram, linkedIn etc., If you have invested the money, you should know what is happening on the project. It is important to join the community that is good for you to ask any question in the telegram channel and share in the facebook if it is worthwhile project. Another important thing is the Roadmap. All the cryptocurrency project follow the roadmap and deliver the project on time. It includes how they are communicating to community like open, transparent, and provides information etc., These are the questions to be analyzed when you put the money in cryptocurrency companies.

Criteria for Best ICOs: Here are the criteria for defining and finding the best ICO companies in the long term,
1. Mission and End Goal : It is the primary thing to define the company by answering the following questions
     * What are they trying to achieve?
     * Why do we need this product/solution?
     * What is the primary problem that they are trying to solve?
     * Will it bring extra value to the marketplace and how does it provide extra value?
To achieve these things, the cryptocurrency companies provide the easier payment method and creating the bank( eg, Binance, Bankera, Kucoin etc) with cryptocurrencies. Normally, the traditional banks does not support cryptocurrency.

3. Need of Blockchain & Token: Blockchain is the distributed database that can allow transactions between entities that don't need to trust each other or rely on central authority. It is also the public ledger that records all transactions. When you are starting cryptocurrency ICO, you should always ask that is there a real need for a blockchain in this specific situation? Why do they need tokens or coins and the value of the coin?
4. Guaranteed Short Term Gains: When the cryptocurrency ICO have huge hype around the ICO,  there are lots of community members and influencer are talking about it sold out. When the hard cap is reached, the price will go up when it goes to the exchange. Now, you will make short term gains. The people start rushing to ICO when the influencers mention that ICO and it gives the huge peak at the price and falls significantly afterwards. So, keep in mind the following,
    * Hype lasts for short term
    * Cryptocurrency influencers are paid for the promotions
    * Invest only in worthwhile projects.

6. Research their Work: It is important to check the github activity of the project. Cryptocurrency projects have often open source code and piece of the code reflects the attitude of the developer. They should be able to answer the questions if they don't have a github activity. Also, you should be careful about hard to read and sloppy code.
7. Token Distribution and Funds: Pay attention to what kind of token distribution does the company have, how does the company use funds that they collected and how many token in total and price? Usually, the tokens with lower price are interesting for the people to buy it.
Strategies in ICO:  There are strategies that will help you to make profit in ICOs like,
