Last week, Stellar was listed as one of a handful of cryptocurrencies that received recommendations in the latest update of Weiss Ratings’s digital currency ranking. According to the ranking,  Stellar, Ripple (XRP), Cardano (ADA) and EOS are currently the only digital coins that deserve a “buy” rating.

“XRP and Stellar are appealing to businesses and other organizations, mainly for speedy financial transfers,” the update reads. “In contrast, EOS and Cardano are designed more as virtual communities, with each participant empowered to influence the future direction of the project, spanning a broad range of applications.”

Weiss Ratings tracks data for over 3,000 tokens and issue grades on 111 of them. The company considers a “buy” to be equivalent to a “B-“ or better grade. No cryptocurrency has been given an “A” in the report.

In today’s trading, the Stellar price stood at $0.257, as of 15:19 GMT. The digital coin has gained 0.2% in the past 24 hours.
