Qualitative Ranking Factors

Approach to Ranking

Since most Canadian exchange listed cryptocurrency and blockchain mining companies, as of January 2018, are still in the planning and ramping up stage, company rankings are limited to considering qualitative factors:

Rating factors will evolve and expand once there are several quarters of miners with operating results with production numbers, power usage, coins produced, and the like.

Ranking Color Code Explanations

Key Explanation


  • The diamond level of the TSXv/CSE cryptocurrencies listings contains the companies that in my opinion are most likely to evolve into the cryptocurrency / blockchain space equivalents of Franco Nevada in the gold space - fast growing revenue streams with a near constant number of employees. But it is cryptocurrency and there are lots of future bumps so do look at these plays as lottery tickets that are always going to be good for the next draw.

    HIVE.V makes the diamond level because of financial / technical depth and excellence. These guys are simply the best in my opinion.

    DASH.V makes the diamond level because it is the most transparent / passive play - a huge percentage of current assets is in DASH coins, which continue to earn daily from day one without depreciation. Its in the coin. Simply brilliant.
