Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Beginning today, Flipside Crypto’s fundamental health rating system, FCAS, will be available to all registered users of CoinMarketCap’s API.  FCAS stands for Fundamental Crypto Asset Score, a single, consistently comparable value for measuring cryptocurrency project health.   This is the second phase of a relationship for CoinMarketCap and Flipside Crypto: FCAS has appeared on CoinMarketCap’s asset pages since March of 2019.

FCAS is produced using primarily blockchain transaction data and developer activity to characterize cryptocurrencies.  Daily FCAS Ratings for more than 500 crypto assets are now accessible via CoinMarketCap’s new API version upgrade (v.1.16.0) across all pricing tiers, including the Basic Tier, which is free for personal use. In addition, CoinMarketCap’s updated API provides ROI, ATH, ATL, and other “price performance statistics” with its new endpoint.

“We couldn’t be happier to announce CoinMarketCap as the first-ever API distributor of FCAS and its subcomponents,” said Flipside Crypto CEO, Dave Balter. “Crypto organizations are maturing, and their ability to develop product and whether they can attract and retain customers are key signals that will impact long term value and price, so it’s only natural to distribute via CoinMarketCap as an industry leader.”

Beyond FCAS, Registered CoinMarketCap API Users will also be able to access Flipside Crypto’s daily subcomponent ratings for User Activity, Developer Behavior, and Market Maturity.

“We are excited to bring Flipside’s quantitative data to our API, so that users of our API are now empowered to draw ever more accurate conclusions using multiple data points,” said Carylyne Chan, Chief Strategy Officer of CoinMarketCap, “As we expand future paid offerings on the API in partnership with Flipside, we are confident that these will support even more data-backed decisions, spanning price, volume, and fundamental metrics.”

Flipside Crypto’s FCAS is produced by ingesting blockchain transaction data and applying behavioral tags to understand the actions of customers, speculators and 16 other segments, as well as evaluating more than 30 data points across 18,000 github, gitlab and bitbucket developer code repositories.  Over 100 billion events are analyzed to generate a clear comparative picture of individual crypto asset performance.

Flipside Crypto was founded in 2017 by veteran entrepreneurs Dave BalterEric Stone and Jim Myers.  The team previously built Smarterer, a machine-learning skill assessment platform that was acquired in 2014 by Pluralsight. Flipside Crypto is venture backed by True Ventures, Coinbase Ventures, Digital Currency Group and other investors.

i-exceed’s Appzillon Powers Canara Bank’s Omni-Channel Consumer Banking – A Comprehensive Solution for Cutting-Edge Mobile and Internet Banking Experiences

 

For some time now, Canara Bank, one of the leading public sector banks in India has been working with i-exceed for a successful digital transformation.

The bank started its digital transformation journey in 2017 by launching CANDI – India’s first truly digital banking branch that offers various banking services to the customers including instant digital on-boarding.

The next phase of digital transformation took place in the form of Omni-Channel Consumer Banking. Here, the bank wanted to provide a consistent user experience to its customers across all mobile and Internet channels.

i-exceed’s Appzillon Omni-Channel Consumer Banking proved to be the right fit for Canara Bank’s requirements because of its capabilities to function as a stand-alone system and also perfectly integrate with existing legacy systems. Customers can now use common credentials and access a unified beneficiary database, limits, etc. across different solutions offered by the bank. i-exceed’s offering also ensured quick time to market of all the project deliverables in an agile manner.

Omni-Channel Consumer Banking has been built using Appzillon Digital Experience Platform. A unique differentiator of the platform is its micro-app based architecture. It enables app developers to combine as well as customise micro apps from Appzillon Digital Repository to build complex apps much faster than other platforms in the market. Apps developed using Appzillon follow a ‘code once deploy anywhere’ approach that significantly reduces development and deployment effort for a wide range of environments (operating systems, browsers, and device form factors). The scalable architecture of the platform played an integral role in the app’s success as it could swiftly adapt to the large volumes of transactions taking place on Canara Bank’s Internet banking channel.

Recently, leading global FinTech-focused analyst firm IBS Intelligence recognized i-exceed at the Global FinTech Innovation Awards for ‘Most Innovative Digital Banking Implementation’ at Canara Bank.

S Sundararajan, Executive Director at i-exceed commented, “We are proud to be associated with Canara Bank for almost three years in their digital transformation endeavours. We are very excited to partner with them on their multiple digital initiatives as they become a digital-first bank. We wish Canara Bank all the best in their initiatives and look forward to our continued engagement as there is a tremendous opportunity to bring more customers to perform all their transactions digitally.”
