The third official cryptocurrency ratings index was recently published by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology CCID global public chain technology. According to Daily Hodl report, last month, EOS was on the top and it was followed by Ethereum, NEO, Stellar, Lisk and Nebulas.
This time, however, EOS and Ethereum are both at the top, while the other major cryptos such as Ripple, NEO and Stellar are slipping. And, Bitcoin is more or less stagnant at number 16. There are 31 coins on the latest list and each coin is scored on the basis of its underlying technology, application and innovation.
According to the CCID website, “The global public chain technology assessment work was organized and implemented by the CCID (Qingdao) Blockchain Research Institute.”A number of units including the CCID Think Tank under the China Electronic Information Industry Development Research Institute and the China Software Testing Center together carried out the assessment.
What’s the top two coins doing?
Ethereum (ETH) fans rejoice as buying their favourite coin is a lot easier now. MyEtherWallet.com (MEW), a popular website to access Ethereum wallets has eased the process of buying Ethers. The website announced in a tweet that they’ve partnered with Simplex, which allows users to buy ETH token with their credits. So Ethereum investors don’t have to visit an exchange’s website to buy their cryptocurrency, just whip out your credit card and buy yourself some Ethers.
On the other hand, EOS Blockchain hit the headline after the platform broke two records in the last 24 hours. Both in terms transaction speed. First, by beating all other cryptocurrencies with 2,822 transactions per second and then crossing the 3k transactions per second mark, Blokt reported.
