Wise Cryptos does not endorse any crypto ratings system and that includes the Weiss Cryptocurrency Ratings. The cryptocurrency market moves so fast that it would be impossible to keep up to date with the thousands of coins out there. We also aim to be completely impartial and independent so to that end we will not be doing any crypto reviews or ratings. We also disaprove of websites, youtubers and bloggers who base their reviews and ratings relative to the price due to the incredible fluctuations and volatility of cryptocurrency prices.
Having said that, we do feel that the Weiss Cryptos blog deserves a mention and a place on our website as they do have many years of experience in the stock market and blog about a wise range of coins and subjects.
Disclaimer: As with any form of media, some degree of journalistic license and potential bias should always be taken into account when reading news articles, and Wise Cryptos advises against investing based on information garnered from one source only.

We get this question all the time: You rate over 100 cryptocurrencies. Why don’t you rate Basecoin, Carbon, MakerDAO, Tether, TrueUSD, USD Coin and other stablecoins?
