Soft Cap is the minimum amount for project succession. Below that would be improbable to carry out the project successfully. Although some teams organize a second public sale phase and use the money of first ico for development, and this time, with some features revealed, they get more investments and they eventually succeed.

Hard Cap is the maximum amount of investment the project will accept during the sale. It is depending on the token amount of public sale.
This definition was helpful. Thank you. What happens when a project reaches to hard cap value?
hard cap is the amount that they will accept no more than. For instance a soft cap could be 10 million and a hard cap 30 million meaning if the project does not attain 10 million it will not proceed and also if it reaches 30 million no more can be contributed.
Thank you, so it means all coins sold out and there is no coins left for another buyer?
This is very good for the owner but after that? What happens? If someone reached hardcap, then the coin's price should moon?
I think not all coin who reached hardcap are going to moon because sometimes it becomes dumped in the market due to lot of big investors who purchased it in low price on while they are on PreSale stage. PreSale stage is the time on which the coins can be lowered the price until 50% into its ico price that can possibly maked a dump in the market because some of its early investors got a profit already and they want to get it. Hardcap also doesn't mean that it become pumps in the market because it is always based on the demand and supply in the market that can be control by its supporting community.

If the project does not collect a soft cap, then the tokens must be returned to investors. I know one project, which was originally planned to collect software cap 1000 ETH, and then realized that it would not work and reduced it to 150 ETH and recognized ICO held! It's cheating! Always see how quickly and how much money the project collects.
But there are also ICOs that even though did not reach their softcap but still they continue their project and succeed. It is not always the case if the softcap is reached that they will return the money to investors.

Hard cap means the maximum amount of capital that it aims to gather while soft cap is a minimal amount of funds needed and aimed at by the project to proceed s planned.  By knowing both hard and soft cap of an ICO is some of statistical information that every investors  should know and transparent projects the one who build the most trust with their community.

if so, what is the difference between cryptocurrencies and Kickstarter, Indegogo?
Crypto has trading option which is plus?

soft cap is the minimum of money that needs to be collected in order for the project to go further . A hard cap is a maximum of money. some companies finish the project before the deadline, if the hard cap is assembled earlier.

I look into the extent to which those two, soft cap and hard cap can be reached before going into a bounty campaigns in order not to end up wasting my time. If soft cap most especially is not reached, the project suffers failure from the inception.

The hard cover is hard and forced work, after which you can rest, and with a soft lid a calm and smooth work.

These are fundraising goals. Soft cap is the lower limit, the minimal amount required for the project to be considered. If the project does not reach its soft cap, the team will return the funds. On the other hand, hard cap is the maximum amount a crowdsale will receive.

As I've known that :
+ Hard Cap is the absolute upper limit a team will take .
+ Soft Cap is typically a lower limit, more like how much a team is aiming to raise.
If a team receives donations exceeding their hard cap, the funds are immediately returned to investors.

What is the difference of hard cap to soft cap? Did we base on this if we are going to invest in altcoins? Share your comments.

soft cover is the minimum that should collect the project that it was further developed! The stiff cover is the maximum that a project can assemble! If the hard cover is collected before the deadline, the ICO will be closed early! The hard cover gives you to understand that if the project collected it, the project will be successful, and will definitely be on the stock exchange after the ICO!

If more investors coming to invest in ICO project so that the main coin sales target can be achieved. And if the soft cap is reached the next journey has certainly achieved all project ICO is reaching the hard cap. Doing so could make the ICO project can succeed and make the participants could harvest the Kingdom.

Usually, the ICO is held for the entire minimum declared period. Therefore, if they even collect the hard cap before then the ICO will still continue. I have rarely seen companies that are ahead of schedule to complete ICO. ICO prolong usually the opposite. Buy tokens of our project, then on the exchange.

for many projects just reach the soft cap (minimum expected) during the ico means to be able to carry out / develop the project and possibly be successful, unfortunately nobody can know before you have to inform about the experience of the team, if they have already done other ico and if the idea of ​​the project seems valid

Soft cap the minimum amount for the sequence of the project. while the hard cap can be seen as the total allowable figure or amount for the job. many ICO projects have high goals, and in this case the value of a hard cap is difficult to achieve.

Soft cap and hard cap is a baseline of selecting a project for investing ICO in assurance for the campaign that is really a good project invested were it can be seen the flow of how many people were engaging together with the limits that never more than the hardcap and below the softcap. Popular ICO will reflect itself how really good the campaign.

It is much like a kickstarter for blockchain project. Moreover, with current trends in the field of investment you have a possibility to support the project that you really want to be implemented in the reality.

Soft Cap this is the minimum amount necessary to start an ICO.
Hard Cap this is the amount of money that the team plans to collect.
Investing is best at an early stage. During the pre sale, the biggest discount is on coins. In the end, the discount is less.
