What is an analyst briefing?

An analyst briefing gives a market intelligence firm (in this case Blockdata & CBInsights), in depth understanding on what you are doing. It is a personal approach that guarantees our data is accurate, and considers your business acumen and accomplishments. It is of the utmost interest of Blockdata to share our knowledge, but to also respect the privacy of your information.

We acknowledge that within the Blockchain and DLT ecosystem a number of companies have not done analyst briefings before, and thus recommend this reading; click here

Blockdata has a 2 stage approach for these briefings:

1. An online form to collect information on what your org is doing, this data will also be used for our platform, an example profile is here:

Ranking criteria

Our ranking criteria will be based on a number of variables that comprise of two major categories. First, we look at market strength which involves a company’s business relationships, commercial output, and other key business metrics such as revenue and product readiness. Second, their ability to execute, which involves funding, the quality of the team, advisory and board members, as well as the integration and workings with other third party services and key milestones. The exact criteria is kept under wraps to prevent gaming the system with data.

Blockdata’s analysts will evaluate the overall criteria and data received via the surveys and customer reference calls, which will be measured through a scoring framework. The scoring combined with our analysts industry knowledge of the industry will determine the final outcome of the ranking criteria.

There are three potential inputs into the Matrix evaluation:

1) The questionnaire to be completed by vendors

2) A product demo session

3) Customer feedback and reference calls
