How you do not need to make cryptocurrency exchange ratings
The only truly honest crypto rating in the world is Coinmarketcap. It shows market capitalization, sales volume and cryptocurrency rate. Everything here is extremely clear and transparent.
However, when certain resources try to create the same list for exchange services, it turns out funny. Especially if many important details are intentionally omitted. Take the Cryptonisation article as an example.
What is wrong with this post?
Let’s start with the most obvious – it’s advertising, and the authors do not try to disguise advertising services. They provide information to the reader in the forehead, claiming that 5-6 cryptocurrency exchangers are better than all the others in a number of ways.
Suppose that we, as readers, have believed their opinion, experience, and selection criteria. But let’s look at two points:
• Date of publication of the review.
• Article title.
The material was released on February 24, 2020. It is called the top of the best exchangers in 2020. Nothing alarming? No, the point is not that the services listed in the article are bad. Just summing up the year in less than two full months after it starts is a very strange way to get a rating. How can we evaluate the results of work for 2020, when the first quarter was not even completed? Good question for compilers.
Another point is the commission figures. To do a rating on a dynamically variable parameter is, at a minimum, not professional.
In general, the review resembles an episode from “Gentlemen of Fortune”, or rather, the phrase “do not go there, go here.” Only instead of snow on the head, as a threat – high commissions and other shortcomings.
Where are they driving?
You might think that on the ads of several popular cryptocurrency exchangers, everything will end with a logical “buy from them” ending. But, everything is not so simple. The authors of the article smoothly lead to the fact that there is such a wonderful site with ratings. Then comes his detailed review with several active links and a video demonstrating how to find the best exchange office using this resource.
Commissions, limits, stocks of funds in each of the areas are indicators that are constantly changing. Therefore, creating a static list in article format is useless. Online exchangers are not stores that can be simply sorted by price markup.
As for the reviews discussed in the article, everyone knows that a significant part of user comments on top resources are written to order, and negative comments and uncomfortable questions are often deleted by moderators. Therefore, the accuracy of any rating is often mediocre, even if it was not created for advertising purposes.
Advertising sites is normal and even good. To give out advertisements for a full review, and even for a year in advance, is an unprofessional approach for the administration of a resource. If the text under the heading “Best Cryptocurrency Exchangers 2020” was published at least in November, the reader would have far fewer legitimate questions for the site administration.
There are dozens of criteria by which you can really determine the effectiveness and security of a resource. However, these are not the points described in the article. These are not thousands of reviews written to order by copywriters. Experienced crypto buyers and sellers trust not advertised sites, but those that have been tested on their own experience or recommended.
