NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#coinmarketcap—Crypto Briefing, an independent cryptocurrency research and news platform, announces a partnership integrating Crypto Briefing’s SIMETRI digital asset ratings on CoinMarketCap.
SIMETRI — Crypto Briefing’s institutional-grade research product positioned and priced for the retail investor — provides in-depth fundamental analysis and unbiased, detailed insights into cryptocurrency projects. Each report is concluded with a concise investment grade — now available to tens of millions of users on CoinMarketCap.
Beyond Price and Volume Data
Starting today, CoinMarketCap users can visit individual crypto asset pages, and find the new information under the “Ratings” tab.
Crypto Briefing’s ratings metric analyzes dozens of fundamental factors to assess the investability and potential long-term profitability of crypto assets. These factors are provided as an easy-to-understand digital asset grade, allowing investors to look beyond price and volume data to get a more holistic view of the market.
By incorporating fundamental analysis in an easy-to-understand digital asset grade it allows investors to look past price and volume data to get a more holistic view of the market.
Combined with CoinMarketCap’s recently launched Liquidity Metrics, retail investors can now get a level of detail into markets not previously accessible to the public.
“Crypto Briefing has systematically reported on and evaluated hundreds of digital assets. Our connections and expertise allow us to provide valuable recommendations to investors,” said Han Kao, CEO of Crypto Briefing.
Blockchain data providers TokenInsight and IntoTheBlock will also be featured alongside Crypto Briefing on CoinMarketCap.
Data Transparency for the Crypto Investor
Inclusion of Crypto Briefing’s SIMETRI digital asset ratings is part of CoinMarketCap’s Data Accountability & Transparency Alliance (DATA) initiative, which was first unveiled in May 2019. DATA is CoinMarketCap’s ongoing bid to provide transparency and verifiable order book data from exchanges. Crypto Briefing is currently the only crypto-media publication involved in the initiative.
The initiative follows widespread concerns around cryptocurrency market manipulation. Last year, Bitwise released an in-depth analysis of exchange markets and found that roughly 95% of Bitcoin trading volumes may be fabricated through wash trading.
“Crypto Briefing, TokenInsight, and IntoTheBlock are highly respected in the industry for their informative and in-depth offerings, and I’m sure our users will benefit greatly from their valuable data and ratings,” said Carylyne Chan, Chief Strategy Officer of CoinMarketCap.
Raising the Standard for Blockchain Media
In 2018, Crypto Briefing announced it successfully closed a $2 million seed round, giving the company a $13.3 million valuation. Investors include Youbi Capital Fenbushi, DHVC, and NGC, among others.
The publication received awards for “Best Media Outlet” at the Malta AI and Blockchain Summit last year and was runner-up for the “Best Blockchain Publication” at the Dapp Awards, held at Devcon IV, in 2018.
“Crypto Briefing was founded on the principle of information equality for the retail investor. Today, we are one step closer to that goal,” said Kao.
