Crypto Rating Table

A crypto rating evaluates the ‘credit worthiness’ of a digital asset (usually cryptocurrencies[1] Wikipedia – “Cryptocurrency” or cryptotokens[2]Wikipedia – “Crypto tokens” ), mostly issued by a business enterprise. It is an evaluation made by a crypto rating agency of the digital asset likelihood of failure. Crypto ratings are determined by ‘crypto ratings agencies’. Up to now, ‘crypto ratings’ are not congruent to ordinary ‘credit ratings’ which are based on probability of defaults[3]Wikipedia – “Probability of default”.
