Projects that will be chosen for listing on The Syndicate will have the possibility to allocate their tokens for sale with a discount of up to 50%. The proceeds from token sales will go directly to the projects.
Crypto.com’s score metrics
When choosing a venue for listing, it is crucial to check its reputation and general rank in comparison to other exchanges. A good choice is to check how CoinGecko, CoinMarketCap, and Nomics rate the exchange.
CoinGecko uses Trust Score, a rating algorithm evaluating the legitimacy of an exchange’s trading volume. Trust Score is calculated on a range of metrics such as liquidity, the scale of operations, cybersecurity score, and more. Crypto.com’s Trust Score is a max. 10. Only 10 out of more than 500 cryptocurrency platforms have a Trust Score of 10.
CoinMarketCap’s Exchange Score is based on the following factors:
- Web Traffic
- Average Liquidity & Volume
- the Confidence that the volume reported by an exchange is legitimate. Weights are assigned to the above-mentioned factors and a score from 0.0 to 10.0 is given to the Spot Exchange.
Crypto.com’s Exchange Score is 5.6.
Nomics’ metric is called Impact Score – and represents an exchange’s influence on the price of cryptocurrencies it trades. The score is a combination of web traffic, volume, and other factors.
Crypto.com’s Impact Score is 7.50.
The second Nomics metric, called Transparency Rating is B (good). Nomics explains the purpose of these scores as rating cryptocurrency exchanges by their willingness to provide auditable history.
CryptoCompare has established the notion of Top-Tier volume whereby investors can segment the market into higher and lower-risk volumes (A is the best and E is the worst grade).

Why do I need a market maker?
Managing a token startup is a real challenge. As a cryptocurrency project, you need to focus on building your products and services and leave liquidity to market makers.
A market maker will help you:
- deepen the liquidity on your token’s books and make them more stable – which helps mitigate the price fluctuations of your coin
- lower spreads between bids and asks so that the prices get fairer for investors; that reduces the cost of entering and exiting positions and encourages investors to trade your coin
