How is the content of the report created?

We draft our reports in two stages.

First, we deep-dive in the technology and understand the arch of the technical developments. Then, we delve into the business surrounding the tech, including team composition, network effects, current and future competitors, and industry tail- or headwinds. We study trading trends, the carrying exchanges and the depth of the market. We leverage our contacts in the cryptocurrency space to garner further insights into the mechanics of the digital currency.

Second, once we have gathered all relevant data points, we draft a report synthesizing our findings and formulating our opinion on the future trajectory of the digital currency. 

Does BBR issue reports on Initial Coin Offerings?

Yes. We cover existing coins as well as Initial Coin Offerings (ICO). In our ICO analysis, we primarily focus on team composition, technological fundamentals, future liquidity analysis, market participants and adoption channels.  

Do clients that pay for your reports have a say on the content of the research reports?

No. The content of every research report is determined independently by Black Block Research analysts. The name and occupation of all analysts and editorial committee is kept confidential for the purpose of avoiding any undue influence. 

Do you offer recurring coverage of coins?

Yes. We issue quarterly coverage on select coins. We publish our quarterly reports on our website as well as on social media outlets. 

The process of drafting quarterly reports requires back-and-forth with core teams. We  prepare questionnaires, interview core team, publish answers to questionnaire, and draft a report based on all collected information.
