3 Adjustments to Our Weiss Crypto Ratings Model
To reflect recent industry trends, we’ve made three adjustments to the Weiss Crypto Ratings model:
First, we’ve raised the bar on technology: We are doing more to penalize copycats. Plus, we are requiring that Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) be more unique and robust to merit the best grades.
Second, adoption now plays a somewhat larger role in our Tech/Adoption Grade.
Third, Risk/Reward, now called Market Performance, plays a smaller role in the overall Weiss Crypto Rating.
As a result, you will see many ratings changes this week in both directions — upgrades and downgrades.
Just be aware that they are not a reflection of something that just took place in the past seven days. Rather, almost all of today’s ratings changes reflect adjustments we’ve made to the Weiss Crypto Ratings model in order to better reflect broad shifts in the industry as a whole over the past year or more.
