Interested in cryptocurrency? We help you understand which might be best for you.

What we do

We are an independent group that has been monitoring and studying the world of cryptocurrencies for over 4 years. Today's cryptocurrency ecosystem is evolving very fast. It has huge opportunities, not only financial but also to change the way we all think about money. It also has dangers and risks. There are scams, scoundrels and villians out there, but there are also a great many people and projects championing the fight for privacy, transparency and fairness.

If you've been thinking about becoming involved in cryptocurrencies but have been put off by the risks, then you're in the right place. We'll help you understand your crypto options even if you don't speak geek.

What we don't do

In order to remain independent, we are not paid by any cryptos or exchanges, and our Cyrano Engine is powered by data pulled from the awesome and unbiased CoinGecko API.

How it works

We pull data from many different sources and maintain an ever changing overview of the cryptocurrency world. When you register for free on our platform we ask you a series of simple questions that allow us to figure out your awareness and level of understanding when it comes to cryptocurrencies. We then run our unique analytics engine (called the Cyrano Engine) against a pool of the top 100 cryptocurrencies to generate a ranking that shows which cryptocurrencies best match your circumstances.

Please be aware that the information we supply does not constitute financial advice, investment advice, trading advice, or any other advice. You should not make any financial decision based on the information presented without undertaking independent due diligence.
