On May 17, the first monthly cryptocurrency rating index that evaluates 28 virtual currencies and Blockchains was launched by the CCID. The index has been developed based on three criteria: technology, application, and innovation.

Ethereum scores were very high in all three categories: 80.3 in technology, 23.7 in applicability and 25.4 in creativity. The total score obtained by Ethereum was 129.4 points. In the second-place comes Steem with 115.9 points and then Lisk scoring 104.89 points.

EOS is not present in the report.
