It seems that while making up names for new coins, their creators think as wide and deep as they can. And after they do that, it appears they ultimately choose what comes to their mind first, they want to have fun, give users an idea of what the coin can be utilized for.

Sometimes, unless there is some special story behind a coin’s title, people seem to use their favorite movies, names of Greek or Scandinavian gods, or references to the Bible, favorite novels.

FirstBlood (ranked 322) is a good example here. It is trading at $0.099154, with the market cap totaling $8 483 439 and daily trading volume amounting to $895. Name taken from a famous in the past action movie about John Rambo.

Bread, aelf (ELF), DeepOnion, Evil Coin, BROTHER, BUDDY.

Cabbage, Dynamite, HiCoin, DeepBrain Chain, TrollCoin, Nuggets, BunnyToken.

Separately, two coins should be noted – TrumpCoin and PutinCoin. The latter is trading at $40 but at the time of writing is falling by around 45 percent.

There is even Bitcoin CZ – sounds like it was created by a big fan of Changpeng Zhao.

Another coin worth mentioning is WHACKD coin created by John McAfee. It is based on the popular meme "Jeffrey Epstein Didn't Kill Himself", since it is to do with Jeffrey Epstein, an American financier, who was accused of a sexual abuse but committed suicide in the prison cell. Many, including John McAfee, believe it was a murder, not suicide.

    The Weiss Ratings agency brings down the EOS score, putting it lower than previously, despite the “great respect for work and thinking that went into the EOS project”

EOS Downgraded by Weiss Crypto Ratings Again, Here’s Why

The highly reputed agency Weiss Ratings downgrades the EOS project from B to C and spreads the word about it on its official Twitter page. The post promises a full article to come out soon and so far just explains the reasons for this decision.

Second downgrade this year

Earlier this year, in June, U.Today reported that Weiss Ratings brought down the score of EOS. Back then, the reason was ‘a serious problem with centralization’ as the agency said in the tweet. The agency made it clear that they were expecting Cardano to take the place of EOS as a fully decentralized DLT project.

Before the score of EOS had beeb brought down first time, EOS stood above both Bitcoin and Ethereum on the Weiss Ratings scale.

'Failure to decentralize'

This time, Weiss Ratings is downgrading the technological score of EOS for yet the same reason – lack of decentralization. The tweet says that the main problem is that 68 percent of the voting power on EOS belongs to just 0.01 percent of the token holders (100 of them, to be exact).

The agency urges the community to realize that the behemoths of the crypto world – Bitcoin and Ethereum – should not be considered technologically inferior.

‘Cardano is vastly superior to EOS’

In the middle of November, on Twitter Weiss Ratings went on with praising the Cardano chain over EOS, saying that the former is ‘vastly superior’ to the latter.

However, EOS remains coin number one in Chinese ratings.
