The association administering the ratings includes exchange operators Coinbase, Kraken, Circle, and Bittrex - the scale will be 1 to 5, with a 1 denoting NOT a security (Bitcoin) and a 5 signifying a token is a security that unregulated crypto firms can't issue, sell, or trade. Issuers won’t have upfront input in the ratings, although they can provide information to dispute a score their token received.
