Two top coins, EOS and Ethereum, did not change their positions, however the center emphasized that the Ethereum Constantinople upgrade is expected to be taken into account in the next evaluation cycle.

Unfortunately, Ethereum Classic has fallen down from 15th place to the 19th place. The center explained that this happened due to the Ethereum Classic 51% Attack, which was quite damaging to the coin.

All 34 coins were ranked in three different categories: basic technology, applicability, and creativity. Moreover, the center stated that the “average value of the creativity index is significantly lower than the previous period.”
