We have taken an approach of only listing exchanges and assets that are Trading Grade.
Trading Grade and Investment Grade are not the same. Investment Grade relies on company/project fundamentals where as Trading Grade focuses on trusted liquidity required to be trade worthy. Though they are different, investors will find most Investment Grade assets are Trading Grade assets as well. If an asset is not Trading Grade, there is a good chance its not Investment Grade either.
The majority of crytpo projects are not trading grade at this time although there are many platforms and hundreds of assets that are. The criteria we use to determine Trade Worthy assets and platforms are as follows.
- Have ample Liquidity
- Have ample Volume
- Are not evident purveyors of fake volume or order books (BVR)
- Are reputable
- On a reputable exchange
- Sees a minimum level or regular surges of daily liquidity over the last 90 days
- Sees a minimum level or regular surges of daily volume over the last 90 days
- Are not evident purveyors of fake volume or order books
- *New assets: Meets minimum liquidity and volume requirments for 3 days
The decision to cull non-trading grade assets was based on the principal of our business model which currently focuses on advanced market metrics. If users desire to see details from 1000 crypto exchanges and 5000 assets regardless of their liquidity, there are plenty of sites available to do so.
We do intend to integrate 100's of other exchanges and 1000's of assets (without advanced market metrics) eventually, as an option for our users through partnership with a mainstream site that supports this data now.
