FCAS Rating passed 650 Points!
Before you look it up what FCAS means, here a short description:
Fundamental Crypto Asset Score (FCAS™) is a comparative metric used to assess the fundamental health of crypto projects. The score is derived from the interactivity between primary project life-cycle factors: User Activity, Developer Behavior, and Market Maturity. Each asset is given a score, 0-1000, and an associated rank.
In October 2019 BAT integrated Burst with flipsidecrypto.com, who measures the Fundamental Crypto Asset Score (FCAS). At that time we could improve our rating shown on coinmarketcap.com steadily (from initial rating ‘F’ to ‘C’). Recently, we passed the 650 (out of 1000) points barrier and got a ‘B’ grade. Overall we are on about 65th rank from over 500 rated coins. This matches up with the 55th rank on coinmarketcap.com of the mineable coins.
As you can see in the Dashboard below, there is a very good score for “Developer Behavior” and room for improvement for “User Activity” and “Market Maturity”.
On Coinmarketcap.com you can see a healthy uptrend in the past three months:
Trading Volume hit 278’000 USD per day!
In the last two weeks Burst hit a yearly high of volume traded on exchanges. Most of it on Bittrex exchange probably because of being mentioned prominently as “Biggest % Gain” and “Top Volume” Coin.
