LISTING CRITERIA

1. OUR PRINCIPLES

We rely on the following principles to guide our decision-making process:

- Reliability: Is the requester able to substantiate his/her case with supporting evidence?

- Confirmation: Is the information verified from credible and independently verifiable sources?

- Methodology: Is this request in accordance with our methodology?

2. INSTRUCTION

Here are the most common types of requests that Cryptoworldwide receives:

No. Request Instructions
1 Updating of project details/URLs

Please ensure that the requested updates match what is found on the project’s website/social media accounts.

If the request entails changing the project’s website, please explain why the team is unable to get the original URL to redirect to the new website.

The verification process will be delayed if we observe any incongruities.

2 Updating of name/Rebrand Ensure that the majority of Cryptoworldwide-supported exchanges have already processed the name change before reaching out.
3 Add markets/pairs for Cryptoworldwide-supported exchanges/assets

Ensure that the asset and exchange are tracked listings on Cryptoworldwide

Ensure that there is non-trivial trading activity/volume.

Provide direct URLs to the specific pairs/assets.

Include the full name of the asset to minimize confusion.

We will not add markets that have trivial volume/activity.

4 Project Listings Review Sections (3)
5 Supply Updates

Provide detailed and well-structured documentation on the asset’s distribution.

The verification process will be delayed if we observe any incongruities.

6 Complaints about misconduct

Provide a detailed and specific account of the incident.

Furnish proof from credible and independently verifiable resources.

Self-selected screenshots and/or social media/forum posts are hard to verify because they can be doctored or orchestrated via sybil attacks.

The challenges of drawing the right conclusions are explained in this blog post.

Our approach is to remain neutral and avoid censorship by providing as much information as possible to our users so that they can form their own conclusions. As such, we generally rely on factual alerts (rather than censorship) when we are able to verify the complaint from credible sources (e.g. regulator statements/watchlists about fraudulent activity or a mea culpa from the accused).

3. PROCEDURES

The process of getting listed and remaining active on Cryptoworldwide is outlined below.

Step 1 - Application

To start a request on Cryptoworldwide, you fill out the online submission form >> Coin Listing / Exchange Listing

- Requests that provide complete and well-structured information (with evidence) will be prioritized for review.

- Check and ensure that you submit your application to the correct option on the form. For example, new exchange applications must be submitted to the ‘Add new exchange’ option on the form, and not anywhere else. Applications that are submitted to the wrong option(s) on the form will be discarded.

- Take the time to consolidate your points in a separate document before completing the form.

- Avoid piecemeal submissions.

- Substantiate your points with evidence from credible, independently verifiable sources.

- Quantify and qualify your progress with concrete and specific examples.

- Avoid hyperbole and vague statements.

- Organize and structure your points in a coherent and logical manner.

- Be truthful. False or misleading claims may render your submission inadmissible.

Step 2 - Evaluation

Cryptoworldwide will perform our evaluation holistically and pay close attention to a multitude of factors (both quantitative and qualitative). Getting listed is therefore not simply a matter of ticking off a checklist or hitting predefined thresholds, as we benchmark submissions against others in the cohort.

 

4. GENERAL RULES

- The online submission form is the only way to request for listings/updates to Cryptoworldwide. Please do not reach out through other channels.

- DO NOT submit duplicate requests or repeatedly ask for status updates as it will add to the queue and delay the process. Contacting our team members on any other channel will not help in getting your request expedited.

- DO NOT ‘spam’ the request form (or incite other entities into doing so on your behalf) as this may result in the blacklisting of your project.

- DO NOT send “angry comments” to our official email channels or social media as this does not reflect well on your organization and may result in the blacklisting of your project.

- In case your token is not listed right away, we might still decide to list it after a while if we find that it has made some noteworthy progress. Feel free to send us additional information about the project's progress (as a new request on the online submission form) to keep us updated and then we can perform a proper evaluation on your project.

- Cryptoworldwide listings are always free. Please beware of spoofed emails, fake social accounts, or individuals requesting listing fees. Anyone asking you to pay a fee or tip for getting your project listed on Cryptoworldwide is definitely not sanctioned to do so. We also do not sanction any listing service to assist in the listing application of any cryptoasset project or exchange. While we gladly accept donations, attempting to bribe us in the hopes of influencing the outcome of your request will not work.

- Cryptoworldwide DOES NOT accept payment of any form to bypass listing requirements or to intentionally publish inaccurate information. We evaluate every request with the same level of scrutiny. Offering to pay large sums for advertising, contingent upon the outcome of your listing, will also not improve your chances of getting listed.

- Focus on organic growth and use of your project. Inflating your project’s trading volume, traffic, or social media metrics will not increase your chances of getting listed. It is in every project’s interest to provide accurate and well-documented information in good faith. Projects that attempt to manipulate or artificially inflate their figures will be permanently disqualified from the rankings.

5. DELISTING

Cryptoworldwide reserves the right to exercise its sole discretion in delisting a market/pair, exchange, or crypto-asset without prior notice. Factors that could contribute to such a course of action may include the following:

- Low liquidity or suspicious trading activity.

- The project’s cessation of development and/or business activity.

- The project’s listing on Cryptoworldwide was the result of misleading, incomplete, or false information.

- The project (and/or its associates) is under investigation, on regulator watchlists, or is found guilty of a breach of law(s), statute(s), and regulation(s).

- Extraordinarily poor implementation or reception by the project’s community.

- Other factors that appear to be risky for its users.

----------------------

HOW TO ADD A COIN/TOKEN

The factors that we consider when deciding on a new listing include but are not limited to:

1. Legal requirements - Assets’ compliance with Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism and securities laws.

2. Trading Volume – Trading volume and liquidity help with establishing a market price for users to acquire and sell cryptocurrencies.

3. Strategic vision – The core team’s purpose to solve some real-world problem and offer solutions to meet the complex needs of modern financial markets.

4. Uniqueness – The ability to create a new project with unique and interesting characteristics that expands the use cases for crypto and helps the crypto ecosystem grow as a whole.

5. Age of the project – The ability of the projects to stand the test of time out of thousands of failed blockchain projects.

6. Community Interest – The project’s attraction and usefulness that could help it get largely adopted by its community, which boost the project’s development.

Notice:

- Before applying for listing, please review our Listing Criteria on our methodology page. Then, if you would like to submit a request to have a new coin/token added to Cryptoworldwide, please start by filling the Request Form.

- After applying for listing, please understand that there are no guaranteed outcomes for listing for new coin/token. While we are trying our best to process the requests as soon as possible, we would appreciate your patience. Meanwhile, you should refrain from sending duplicate requests as this will not help in getting your request expedited, not to mention add to the request queue and may slow down the process.

- Please understand that we will not be able to approve all listing requests. To decide which new coins/tokens will be added, we must follow a strict set of criteria.

- Any attempt to "spam" the request form (or incite other entities into doing so on your behalf) is strongly discouraged and may result in the blacklisting of the project.

- In case your token is not listed right away, we might still decide to list it after a while if we find that it has made some noteworthy progress. We will monitor the trading activity/volume over a period of time to determine whether the increase can be organically sustained or was the result of artificial inducement. Please notice that a sustained and organic increase in trading volume/activity across multiple supported exchanges is highly appreciated. Feel free to send us additional information about the project's progress (as a new request on the online submission form) to keep us updated and then we can perform a proper evaluation on your project.

----------------------

HOW TO ADD AN EXCHANGE

The factors that we consider when deciding on a new listing include but are not limited to:

- A functional website with trading volume that matches its API data.

- Must publish a summary API endpoint that exposes the last price and 24h volume of each cryptoasset.

- Must be in operation for at least sixty days (The number of days that affiliated exchanges/projects of the same name have been in operation counts towards this requirement).

- Must allow traders to place buy and sell orders on an orderbook. DEXes with no orderbook data will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

- Must allow users to view all market pairs/order books without the need to log-in to the website.

- Must have direct URLs that display each asset unambiguously (full asset name and/or logo), preferably with a ‘System Status’ page that shows all listed assets.

- Must be able to provide a representative from the exchange with whom we can establish open lines of communication for any clarifications.
