Frequently Asked Questions
How do you determine who is "pro-crypto" and who is "anti-crypto"?
Every stance (or publicly accessible comment) that someone has made about cryptocurrency is given a score between 0 and 100:
- 0 - Very Anti-Crypto
- 25 - Somewhat Anti-Crypto
- 50 - Neutral On Crypto
- 75 - Somewhat Pro-Crypto
- 100 - Very Pro-Crypto
To determine a person's overall score, the average of these stances is calculated. Sometimes this behavior is overridden (for example, if a person makes negative comments but then later on changes their stance).
Who is setting these scores?
Scores are assigned by thought leaders and policy experts in the cryptocurrency space. You'll see the individual responsible for a ranking and any additional commentary they have below each stance.
Sometimes, when no expert has weighted in on a given stance, the team that maintains DoTheySupportIt.com will attempt to categorize a stance. These categorizations are always superseded by any policy expert takes.
