Evaluation

Each of eight factors has its own specific weight in a total evaluation, which might be changed depending on the lifecycle of a business, type of the product, market competition, etc.

Maximum score for each ICO – 5 points.

For each of the eight factors we determine all possible risks. Afterwards, we impose group of risks with highest probability of occurrence on the project's business model and consequently determine their potential impact on the company.

Depending on the type of the overall risk, a project is granted one of the following grades: investment or speculative.

  1. Low - highest rating, representing minimum risk default.
  2. Moderate - strong capacity to meet financial commitments.
  3. Elevated – a speculative opportunity for investors with a medium risk tolerance.
  4. High - high probability of default.
