How We Evaluate Protocols

Integrating new blockchains, protocols or strategies into Coinchange takes a dedicated team that follows a predefined framework. These research and the risk assessment procedures are key to making that integration as secure and smooth as possible.

Sector
Research

In this step we gather, analyze and synthesize intelligence about crypto projects and initiatives across the crypto asset ecosystem. We provide internal stakeholders with the knowledge and insights necessary to provide actionable insights. 

Protocol screening and risk evaluation

By building upon the content and information gathered in the previous step, we use specific criteria on a protocol or blockchain available information to uncover relevant info about risks; this includes information about the team and its vision, the protocol control, overall code quality and counterparty risk. The result is a relative risk understanding of the blockchain or protocol.

Strategy info for integration

Here we list any data point relevant for integration into the backend algorithm. We keep those data points up to date and add any new protocol data point into the current list once they successfully pass the “Protocol screening” evaluation and the “Strategy definition”.
