11 Crypto Projects Join Messari Disclosures Registry

Eleven crypto ventures revealed August 21 they had joined the Messari Disclosures Registry, including four top-100 ventures by market cap: Cardano, Lisk, V Systems, and Beam.

The new clump of crypto assets brings the entire number of projects listed on the registry to 54. It started with 12 projects in November last year.

“The ability to find basic information on networks and their underlying tokens will be essential to responsible growth in the industry; and we’re thrilled to be working with such a great group to move the industry forward,” Messari’s founder Ryan Selkis said.

The other projects included on August 20 were Akropolis, Elrond, Fusion, Helix, Orbs, Permission and Keep.

Messari is a startup established to bring clarity and transparency to the modern economy of cryptocurrency, blockchains, and tokens. The registry – which projects join voluntarily – intends to make a standard set of information unreservedly accessible to everybody within the industry. Projects commit to sharing “ongoing disclosures regarding their projects,” Messari said.

The four biggest projects among the registry’s new additions all have market capitalizations in the tens of millions of dollars.

Cardano is the only one of the new ventures with a market cap more than $1 billion. It’s a smart contract, open-source blockchain based on pre-existing academic research.

V Systems depicts itself as a blockchain database cloud-engineered for mass adoption. It’s presently worth more than $350 million.

Lisk intends to create blockchains simpler to work with by allowing JavaScript development that can communicate with its blockchain. It presently encompasses a market cap of more than $150 million.

Beam is a privacy-centric blockchain based on Mimblewimble. Its market cap is more than $40 million.
