Global cryptocurrency market data provider CryptoCompare has published a cryptocurrency taxonomy report detailing independent classification of cryptoassets, based on the depth, breadth, and scope of the firm’s global datasets.
“Global Digital Finance (GDF) has worked directly with global policymakers and standards bodies, to help bring a clearer understanding of the opportunities and risks that arise from cryptoassets. It’s clear language is one of the key challenges, given a word can have many meanings to many different professions. Indeed the simple use of “currency” can cause concern when used instead of “payment”. By using the right terms, and by using shared language we can build a shared understanding of the significant potential cryptoassets will bring to the global economy. The work by CryptoCompare is the most detailed taxonomy to date and we look forward to future collaborations.”
