Cryptoassets, which include cryptocurrencies, network u5lity tokens, digital assets,
and decentralized applica5ons (ĐApps), have emerged as an important asset class
with a total market capitaliza5on of approximately $550 billion as of January 2018.
There are now thousands of cryptoassets, and many leading venture investors,
such as Andreessen Horowitz and others, es5mate that the total number of
cryptoassets will soon be greater than the total number of publicly traded equi5es.
While people are ﬂocking to cryptoassets (e.g., >$4B in >1,000 ICOs in 2017), this
new asset class is missing reliable research and informa5on that is both
accountable and transparent. As a result, today’s cryptoassets purchasers make
decisions based more on hype than on hard facts and rigorous analysis. In contrast,
other asset classes — stocks, bonds, commodi5es, real estate, na5onal currencies —
have well-developed research and informa5on ecosystems. For example, 34 ﬁrms
As of January 2018, the total market value of cryptoassets was approximately $550
billion. In combina5on with substan5al price vola5lity, this increasing market value
trajectory has a`racted an array of speculators. However, most cryptoasset
research is of poor quality and dubious impar5ality; much of it is oien provided
free by advisers promo5ng ICOs on behalf of clients. Therefore, rather than
focusing on relaying well researched and abundantly substan5ated eviden5ary
support for a token’s u5lity and value, today’s “research” is oien inﬂuenced by
compensa5on 5ed to a successful ICO funding campaign.
Furthermore, many speculators oien base decisions on word-of-mouth and are not
accustomed to paying for research. This brand of decision making con5nues even
though they may be aware that others with greater means do pay for research and
oien are more successful. As such, there is a prime opportunity for a pla]orm that

review and choose the top-performing individual analysts. In cryptocurrency
markets, however, trading occurs through crypto exchanges (not broker-dealers),
which predominantly do not fund or produce reliable research at present.
Moreover, we believe the centralized research model is broken. The research
industry and profession is facing an unprecedented crisis due to a shiiing
regulatory landscape, the elimina5on of tradi5onal incen5ve structures, and
technological advances. As the last few years have demonstrated, centralized
research conducted and published by banks and broker-dealers not only risks
crea5ng conﬂicts of interest, but also oien fails to provide customers with the
informa5on they need. Recent studies show less than one percent of research
reports are read by customers.
The need for a new, decentralized research and
informa5on ecosystem is clear.
