A Long-Awaited Event
The recent announcement was long-awaited by cryptocurrency market participants as the crypto industry has no comprehensive and accurate evaluation criteria for exchanges. The gap was especially disturbing given a long list of hacks and scams denting users’ trust and challenging crypto mass adoption.
The crypto industry needs at least one professional rating system for cryptocurrency exchanges. This move could help to keep users away from dubious and unreliable trading platforms and give a boost to investors’ confidence.
Thus, Cointelligence aimed to provide the community with such a transparent system, similar to various ICO ratings. The company wanted to warn investors about every possible issue they might face, from hacks in the past to lousy customer service or problem with funding withdrawals. More importantly, Cointelligence has enough expertise to create such a system as it had already developed a similar rating service for ICOs and STOs.
What is the Criteria?
The company claims its rating system is accurate and fair due to several levels of quality control performed by anonymous crypto experts, raters, supervisors, and research leaders. This anonymity prevents any bribes or influence.
Another critical factor is that Cointelligence is entirely self-funded and thus not subject to external manipulation. So, the only thing that can affect the exchange’s rating is its own factual status.
The Critical Evaluation Criteria:
- Accessibility and Usability: Cointelligence creates a new account with an exchange under review and assesses if the experience is user-friendly. It also considers the ease of depositing and withdrawing funds as well as customer support.
- Financial benefit: This gauge refers to a potential trader’s gains, fees and commissions, trading volume, as well as the range of supported virtual and fiat currencies.
- Team: This metric evaluates the team’s background, experience, and qualifications.
- Security risks involved: Cointelligence assesses the history of previous hacks, security protocols, regulatory compliance, and insurance systems.
However, the system is subject to further improvements. The rating system is still under development, so the company is open to adding more criteria to expand and improve the platform in the future.
Building a Better Cryptocurrency Space
Cointelligence believes that with this move, the cryptocurrency market will become a safer and more trustworthy place. The new features will help investors to find the most reliable cryptocurrency exchanges and safeguard people from financial losses.
Eventually, this will help to bolster a much-desired cryptocurrency mass adoption. Meanwhile, the company welcomes everyone to try the its new system and share their views on it.
