    The Roadmap is the most important of any NFT project. It is a road that tells what the team has planned to do to make them entirely successful. It is a pre-planned and well-researched thing. You need to carefully read the Roadmap and understand whether the plan will stand out or is just too good to be true. Do also check whether or not the NFT project is sticking to its project. There are many instances in which many scammed NFT projects have copy-pasted the Roadmap of the popular NFT projects, so check that someone has not copy-pasted the Roadmap of popular NFT projects.
