According to the announcement, the new platform allows crypto projects to disclose basic information regarding their token design, supply details, technology audits, relevant team members, investors and advisors.
The first 12 projects include a variety of altcoins including some notable names like Civic (CVC), Aurora (AOA) and Zilliqa (ZIL). Each project can now leverage the platform to communicate material updates with both their existing communities and external stakeholders.
“We are thrilled to have such a dynamic, global group of projects joining our disclosures registry,” said Messari CEO, Ryan Selkis. “These teams understand the importance of transparency to their specific communities as well as to the broader global cryptoasset ecosystem.”
Messari plans to act as the sole validator until a limited number of third parties can be brought on board. The platform is initially available for free to crypto service providers looking to leverage the data.
