Eventually, the plan is to eventually extend these rankings to every crypto product category, including even media outlets.
New partnership! Nexo is very proud to be partnering with #cryptocurrency aggregator @NomicsFinance to offer #crypto’s first algorithmic product rankings. See reviews & rankings of top $crypto wallets, credit lines, podcasts & more here: https://t.co/aJFAP48yL0 — Nexo (@NexoFinance) July 2, 2020
According to Nomics CEO Clay Collins, the same algorithm will be applied to all categories without any manual intervention. This should make the rankings more objective.
Each entity receives a reputation score based on its social media activity and site links. However, the exact way to how it works is not disclosed in order to prevent manipulation.
This kind of blind algorithm, at times, do produce interesting results.
Nexo tops Cryptocurrency Credit Lines rankings, while its arch-rival Celsius Network occupies 25th place.
Nomics CEO, Collins however do assures that this is not due to any manipulation and can probably be explained by the fact that Celsius Network only offers a mobile wallet, leaving its website as a basic landing page.
Meanwhile, Celsius CEO Alex Mashinsky said in a recent interview that this is a conscientious choice as it allows the company to reduce a potential cyber-attack vector.
Nomics will be releasing rankings for two additional product categories every week. Collins hopes that Nomics rankings become the “U.S. News & World Report” of the crypto world.
