How to Get Listed on Stakebase
There are two ways to get listed on Stakebase.com:
I) Community Coin Vote
Every 1 to 2 weeks, we will be holding a vote between two coins. The coin that receives more votes will be listed for free on Stakebase. These coins will be selected from the community coin suggestions we’ve received. Only pre-screened coins that meet our requirements will be included in the vote. If the vote is sufficiently close, the losing coin will be eligible to receive a discounted listing fee along with expedited integration.
II) Paid Listing
Coins that meet our requirements (detailed below) and do not want to wait for their respective coin vote can apply for paid listing. The listing fee will remain reasonable (relative to the exorbitant fees charged by most exchanges) to cover the time it takes developers to implement the coin’s wallet and maintain it over time. If this is of interest to your project please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a tentative list of factors considered for projects to be approved for listing, and is subject to change. The project-screening process is put in place to ensure only high-quality projects are included on the Stakebase platform.
1. Coin Must be Stake-able
Stakebase is designed to be a marketplace for cryptocurrencies that users can stake. Only staking mechanisms that incentivize transaction verification/validation/governance and other critical network functions will be allowed–i.e. proof-of-stake consensus or variants thereof. Cryptocurrencies and tokens that are: non-staking, pure proof-of-work, or smart contract tokens (ERC-20, NEP-5, etc.) will not initially be listed. Digital assets that use staking as a means to distribute dividends from a commercial endeavor to investors will not be listed.
2. Demonstrable Network Support
Coins should have strong network support as evidenced by a large percentage of coins actively staking or running as masternodes. Masternode network statistics can be viewed on listing sites such as masternodes.online. This helps signify network maturity and community support.
3. Active Development
Coins must have active Github development activity and, ideally, multiple wallet releases demonstrating non-trivial changes from the network they forked from, if they are a fork. An active development team or community is very important to have.
4. Community Support
Coins must have active communities on Telegram/Discord/Twitter/Slack/Reddit/etc.
5. Network Age
Network age, i.e. how long ago the genesis block occurred, will be considered. Older age is a good sign of robustness to protocol vulnerabilities.
6. Prior Exchange Listings
Which exchanges the coin is already listed on, and how much trading volume and liquidity exists for the coin, is considered.
7. Listings on coinmarketcap.com and similar sites
This is important for assessing multiple other requirements, and is also an indicator of a more established project.
