- China's Center for Information and Industry development released its 18th crypto evaluation.
- Largest changes include Bitcoin advancing from the 14th position to the 12th, and DASH losing its 10th spot.
- EOS still remains the top-ranking project, followed by TRX and ETH.
China’s CCID (Center for Information and Industry Development) recently issued yet another cryptocurrency project evaluation. This is the 18th Global Public Chain Technology Evaluation Index, and the agency released it only yesterday, June 18th.
New changes in China’s evaluation
The index includes 37 of the largest and most popular crypto projects around the world, although it doesn’t rank them by market cap. Instead, the index uses a several categories, such as blockchain technology, applicability, creativity, and ranking.
As mentioned, this is the 18th evaluation of this kind that China has released, and once again, EOS was classified as the best project in the industry. In fact, the first three projects are the same as they were after the 17th evaluation was published. The second spot on the list still belongs to TRON (TRX), while Ethereum (ETH) sits as the third.
One notable thing, however, is that Bitcoin is still not in the top 10 list. However, the project did move favourably, from the 14th spot where it used to be earlier, to the 12th rank.
The CCID estimated that the project’s creativity, and therefore index, should be higher, and so creativity increased from 42.4 to 43, while the index went up to 106.2, while previously it sat at 104.9.
TRX remains in the lead despite issues with Chinese government
Another curious detail is that TRON still remains among the leading projects, despite the fact that China’s authorities and Justin Sun recently had a tense relationship.
The issue emerged after China raised suspicions over the TRON platform’s legal status recently.
Lastly, Dash seems to have lost its spot on the top 10 list in favor of GXS, which pushed it out to the 11th position.
