Adel and Andrew join us today to discuss what Coinmarketcap is and why they believe their ranking system is severely flawed. We discuss the impact that the Coinmarketcap ranking system has had on DAPS Coin and how it creates the centralization of cryptocurrency. We discuss the secret manipulation occurring behind the scenes of Coinmarketcap and how the company is leaving itself open to legal liability with their system. We also discuss where her company ranks on CoinGecko’s ranking system and the upcoming projects they are working on at DAPS Coin.
