Steem scores a C on new CoinMarketCap grading system

Leading crypto market ranking site is introducing a new grading system for cryptocurrencies.

The Fundamental Crypto Asset Score (FCAS) grading system has been developed by blockchain analytics startup Flipside Crypto. It ranks cryptocurrencies according to factors including user activity, developer behaviour and market maturity.

Unfortunately Steem is currently only scored as a grade C (545/1000) which puts it in position #78.

MD Elizabeth Powell and the Steemit Inc team are already investigating how to improve the ranking of Steem.

@dragosroua, @jrcornel and @ura-soul have all posted about the new grading system...

Steem Alliance Town Hall Meeting - Wednesday 20 March

The Steem Alliance is holding another Town Hall Q&A session in their Discord server on Wednesday 20 March, 8pm UTC.

Matt @starkerz will be joining the meeting to discuss how the Steem Business Alliance will be able to work with the Steem Foundation when it is formed.

The 11 teams who have put forward Foundation proposals to the Steem Alliance have also been invited to present their ideas at a one-off special State of Steem Forum on Thursday, 9pm - 11pm UTC, on MSP Waves.

Steem progresses on StackExchange

Following pushes from @theycallmedan and others Steem has now progressed to the next stage on StackExchange.

Steem is now in the 'Commitment Stage'. Currently Steem is at 6% on this stage which means it needs another 94 people with a 200+ rep to commit to using the site before it progresses to the beta stage.

Paycent now accepts STEEM

Witness @bitrocker2020 reports that Singapore-based crypto-fiat card Paycent now accepts STEEM...

Thank you @kus-knee. I am very glad you find them useful. Helps keep me motivated to keep producing them everyday.

A C grade? Not a single other reputable ranking agency/site put STEEM as low as 78. I dont think ive seen STEEM under 10.
Very strange.
How do you take into account "user activity" and then put STEEM at 78?
Makes no sense.

Yes, I was very surprised. With the strength of our community and our great presence on State of the Dapps I thought Steem would be well up there - top 25 at least.

Something is fishy about that ranking. EOS user activity currently is basically gambling app transaction spam and even Doge, the penultimate shitcoin ranks higher.
Im not saying STEEM doesnt have its problems and im not someone to use big words like this, but this ranking borders with insanity.

I have reached out to the CEO to see if we can chat.... doubt they took all of 3rd party dapps (if any!) into consideration, as well as other development going on.

Well im being a bit more rash and thrashing them on twitter.
Tools like this when used as a metric with legitimacy on sites like CMC can be extremely dangerous.

The person controling the tool can have great effect on the crypto market which opens up opportunity for corruption.

Would be better if you talked to Cmc owners.

Good point! I'm sure we'll be moved up soon!
