First up was the news that Crypto Briefing has announced a partnership with CoinMarketCap, which will lead to the inclusion of Crypto Briefing’s SIMETRI digital asset ratings on CoinMarketCap (http://ccw.fm/7p2X4). The SIMETRI service provides institutional-grade research, including in-depth fundamental analysis and unbiased, detailed insights into cryptocurrency projects. Each reviewed project receives an investment grade aimed at guiding portfolio decisions. The service, already available on CoinGecko and Binance, will now be accessible to tens of millions of retail investors with its incorporation on CoinMarketCap.
Another promising partnership is the one between the IOTA Foundation, a nonprofit foundation focused on distributed ledger technology (DLT) and open-source ecosystem development, and TradeMark East Africa (TMEA). The goal of the partnership is to help TMEA in its mission to improve East African trade and global competitiveness using IOTA’s distributed-ledger technology. TMEA works closely with East African community institutions, national governments, the private sector and civil society organizations to increase trade by reducing current barriers and improving business competitiveness (http://ccw.fm/T22aO).
