"SIMETRI, that will be embedded into [CoinMarketCap.com] coin profiles and serve mainstream investors. Knowledge is power, and the more transparent information that investors are armed with, the better."

Yoav Vilner

This is also why they ended up investing in us back in 2018. But they aren’t the only ones who recognize what we do.

When we announced in July of this year that we would open up SIMETRI membership to regular investors just like you ...

Forbes reported: 

In this presentation, I WILL SHARE WITH YOU:

  • A little background on myself and the SIMETRI crypto investing system

  • You’ll get to see a few examples of how SIMETRI has helped some of our subscribers make gains as high as 5,149%

  • I’ll introduce you to some ordinary folks who are using it to make massive profits today

  • And most importantly, I’ll show you the simple steps you can take right now so you can join them

I’ll get into all of this in just one moment but first let me quickly introduce myself.

My name is Han Kao 
Founder & CEO of

Crypto Briefing & SIMETRI Research

I graduated with a degree in Economics from Columbia University.

I bought my first crypto in 2013.

Here’s a screenshot of my very first crypto trade in 2013.

I purchased my first batch of Bitcoin on May 31st, 2013 for $132 each.

Today Bitcoin is trading at $9,720.

That’s a gain of 7,260% in just seven years.

Since then, I have been using the same crypto investing strategies I share with SIMETRI members to make profitable investments from the comfort of their living room.

In September of 2017 I started CryptoBriefing.com in order to help educate the public about blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Today, Crypto Briefing is one of the largest, most respected, independent crypto media and research firms in the industry.

We received the award for “Best Media Outlet” at the Malta AI and Blockchain Summit in 2019.

We were runner-up in the same category at the Dapp Awards, held at Devcon IV in Prague in 2018.

In July of 2019, we launched SIMETRI to the public so ordinary investors like you can now benefit from our knowledge and insights.

Since going public with SIMETRI, we’ve been written about by top publications like Forbes, Bloomberg, Inc., VentureBeat, and others.

So how does SIMETRI work?
Our unfair advantage for finding massive crypto profits

Everyone always asks me, how do we consistently pick winners time after time.

And the answer I give is quite simple.

We have an unfair advantage. 

SIMETRI’s unfair advantage all boils down to one simple concept: “Information Asymmetry”

Information Asymmetry occurs when…

“One party in a transaction has more, or better, information than the other”

This is simply a fancy way of saying that an investor with an information advantage will win big.

It’s why our system is called SIMETRI. Because I’m passing that advantage back to YOU.

Our unfair advantage is simple…

We have insights most other investors don’t. 

As an example, take a look at this email alert I sent out to all our subscribers on December 23rd, 2018 when the price of one bitcoin was trading at $3,998 …

Bitcoin Buy Recommendation (sent Dec. 23rd 2018) - BTC Price $3,998

We called the bottom, giving our subscribers a HUGE buy signal for Bitcoin (BTC).

And sure enough, it didn’t take long before Bitcoin was back to $13,387 by June 26, 2019!

That’s a profit of 234% inside of 6 months!

This is why our investment grades are featured on CoinMarketCap—the largest crypto data site in the world.

Because we uncover facts the rest of the market doesn't see.

Our deep research is independent, transparent, and objective.

Here’s what CoinMarketCap had to say: 

"The combination of SIMETRI and CoinMarketCap’s DATA initiative represents a positive trajectory for the standardization of crypto data. Trusted data sources are a cornerstone of traditional financial markets — and as cryptocurrency matures, it needs and deserves these sources."

Carylyne Chan
CEO, CoinMarketCap

You might be wondering why we have these insights.

We have two major unfair advantages that gives us the edge on what is really happening behind the scenes:

1) Our Media Company and
2) Our Research Team

SIMETRI’s Unfair Advantage #1 

The reality is, with over 2000 coins trading on the crypto markets today, it’s a struggle for crypto companies to get attention from honest publications.

This is why everybody in crypto wants to tell us their profitable secrets and their most exciting investment opportunities.

And this is also what helps us identify early stage crypto ventures with massive potential way before they even come onto the market.

But not everything everyone tells us necessarily checks out to be a good investment.

So that brings us to our second unfair advantage: our world class team of crypto experts and researchers.

A World-Class Crypto Research Team

Our research team gets to see what almost nobody else sees!

When we started our media company, we also started a research department comprised of some of the smartest and most knowledgeable crypto experts in the world.

We brought on board Andre Cronje to provide technical code reviews of early-stage crypto projects.

Andre is a blockchain pioneer whose credentials as a technologist are almost unmatched in our industry.

Andre has 20 years of experience as a software architect.

He was CTO for the digital banking division of Shoprite Group, one of the largest retailers in the world.

He has deep experience with big data, neural nets, machine learning and blockchain technology.

He is a contributor to the Ethereum codebase and has led development teams at several other public blockchain and crypto projects.

This allows us to see what’s really going on under the hood with the top blockchain projects on the market. 

Andre first looks to see if the project makes sense on a theoretical level.

He then proceeds to evaluate the code and see if the team has in fact built what they say they have built.

Andre also checks to see if they are on pace to hit the milestones they have presented to the public.

No other crypto media or research company in the sector does anything like this.

Here is a snippet of his code review on QuarkChain (QKC)

This is also how we discovered QuarkChain (QKC), which peaked at gains of 1,639%

Here is a screenshot of the original QuarkChain (QKC) investment report we published:

Here is what a well-known blockchain developer working on a popular crypto project called Elrond has to say about our code reviews:

"When you are talking about code reviews, tech reviews, Crypto Briefing is very well-written and easy to understand. Sometimes I don’t have to read a 20-page whitepaper, I can just read Crypto Briefing and see if it’s worth reading."

Robert Sasu, 
Core Developer at Elrond
(a project recently listed on Binance)

This is also how we found ZILLIQA (ZIL) which delivered returns of 5,149% 

Here is a screenshot of the original Zilliqa (ZIL) ICO report we published:

A $5,000 into into Zilliqa would have turned into $257,467!

How does SIMETRI Evaluate 
Crypto Investments? 

A proven system for finding the right coins to invest in 

Our Unfair Advantage gives us the means to conduct extensive, deep due diligence on early-stage blockchain projects.

We look at every single factor and every single detail that could potentially affect the price movement of every crypto we review.

The lack of regulation and standardization of industry terms can cause investors to compare apples to oranges.

And often, the more immature a market is, the less efficient it is, and the greater the information asymmetry.

With crypto, we see examples of this everywhere.

We have seen crypto projects utilize bots and wash trading to generate fake volume.

This creates the illusion that there is excitement, adoption, and liquidity for a project.

We have seen the prices of coins jump right before a major announcement.

This indicates that project team members could be sharing this information with their inner circles and allowing these insiders to profit at the expense of others.

Independently, some of these things may seem small and insignificant.

But if you add up all these individual findings and you pull them together, and then evaluate the entire project using a professional evaluation framework then you’ll end up with a very different investment story than the one you started with.

And this, at its core, is what SIMETRI does.

Through this process, we are able to filter out the duds and uncover the hidden gems that are on the cusp of exploding.

The process looks at 7 overarching factors: market opportunity, technology, ecosystem, token economy, team, roadmap, and token performance.

The goal is to identify projects that have a good chance of surviving and expanding, and whose growth should have a positive impact on the coin’s price.

Here are some of the factors we examine:

After we distill all the facts and uncover the details of the crypto, we rate it according to each of the 7 major categories and come up with something like this:

This score then translates into a grade from A to F, with anything above a B- considered “investable.”

An ‘investable’ rating of B- or higher from SIMETRI is a HUGE signal in the crypto industry—which can mean the difference between success and failure for some projects!

We then publish a report detailing our findings which provides an overall analysis on the long-term potential of the project.

It takes over 150 hours for our research team to analyze a project and to create one of these reports. 

And—you might be surprised by this—we are often approached by major funds who want to commission us to write a report on a project they are considering for investment.

We've been consistently offered $10,000 to $20,000 in cash by big crypto funds to do due diligence on a project.

But we decided these reports are too important to be in the hands of one person.

We wanted to make sure they are accessible by ordinary investors like Adrian Biljan, a crypto investor from Ontario.

"Speaking as an analyst and crypto investor, Crypto Briefing’s piece on the 8 indicators predicting the perfect storm for crypto markets validated assumptions made on continuing to invest in Bitcoin.

And their report on Binance’s BNB gave me an objective view on the coin’s use cases. Many more than I even knew about. It’s a refreshing dose of journalism with moral integrity."

Adrian Biljan,
Consultant in Ontario

Pick of the Month 

One of our most important and popular reports is our Pick of the Month Report

This report will reveal the best-rated, project we’ve found over the last 30 days…

This is your bread and butter—if you like to move into position early and take quick profits.

These are often VERY EARLY STAGE projects with even more potential than most listed tokens.

Our Pick of the Month is a coin that we believe not only possesses strong long-term fundamentals but ALSO has the potential to generate explosive gains in the short-term (1-3 months).

Our research shows that certain catalysts often lead to rapid increases in the price of a coin.

And our team of crypto analysts are CONSTANTLY on the lookout for these catalysts.

Catalysts like: 

  • Mainnet launches 
  • Unlocking of new features (like staking functionality) 
  • Major upcoming partnerships 
  • Forks and Halvings 
  • Technology updates 
  • Developments on the core team 
  • Wallet movements 
  • Exchange listings

When we release our Pick of the Month, it is EXCLUSIVE to SIMETRI members. We don’t share it with anyone else. It’s yours, and yours alone.

Our Pick of the Month report on its own is easily worth over $1,000 a month.

INC. Reports:

“[SIMETRI] evaluations use “information asymmetry” to collect and assess the inside scoop on blockchain ventures.”

Dear Reader,
Take a look at this chart:

Introducing SIMETRI

We created SIMETRI to help level the playing field for individual investors like you.

It’s a system that was previously reserved for only the largest crypto hedge funds in the world.

Funds like DHVC, one of the largest and most well-known fintech and crypto hedge funds out of Silicon Valley.

DHVC is a massive venture fund with $800,000,000 in assets under management.

And they have been subscribers to our system for years now.

Here’s what they have to say about us:

THORChain vs Bitcoin

This chart shows a tiny crypto our research team discovered a few months back called THORChain (RUNE) … 

We recommended RUNE in our Pick-of-the-Month report on Tuesday, October 8th 2019 at roughly $0.0119. 

By December 8th, 2019, just three months later, RUNE exploded up to $0.1191 – helping our members see a massive profit of 895% in 3 months.

As of Monday, June 8th 2020, RUNE trades at $0.1830 for a gain of 1,438% in just 8 months.

SIMETRI members were able to turn $500 into $7,690 in 8 months on this investment alone. 

Of course not every Pick-of-the-Month released by SIMETRI was THIS profitable. 

Here are a few other picks released over the past 12 months:

  • Band Protocol (BAND) - April 2020 - gain of +189%

  • Theta (THETA) - July 2019 - gain of +113% 

  • Klaytn (KLAY) - Nov. 2019 - gain of +92% 

Of the 11 Pick-of-the-Month reports released since SIMETRI became available to the public, 7 were winning trades and 4 were losing trades. 

If you had invested the same amount in every recommendation you would see an average gain of 156% by today.

Our proven system
for earning consistent gains — 

regardless of what direction the crypto market moves

SIMETRI is a suite of easy-to-use tools and investment signals—research reports, trade recommendations, email alerts, and a live trading dashboard—to help you make profitable crypto investments.

Full Digital Asset Reports

These are in-depth, investment analysis reports that assess the long-term viability of top coins and their respective investment rating.

When you become a SIMETRI member, you will get access to
our archive of over 60 in-depth digital asset reports.

These reports will provide you with everything you need to know regarding the coin we report on.

You will also receive periodic update reports and be the first
to know if a project has been upgraded or downgraded.

We consider anything that gets a B- or higher an investable project. These are coins that we believe are worth hanging on to  for the long term.

Blockchain is real, and it's here to stay. But which coins will actually survive and show signs of true adoption and use?

Over 90% of the projects on the market today have no real users.

Crypto or no crypto, a product is useless if it has no users.

You will learn about our analysis of the dozens of data points that ACTUALLY matter—the ones that affect the price of a crypto project beyond the hype, stories and lofty dreams.

We look at things like on-chain transactions, number of wallets/users, levels of decentralization, ecosystem development, and even relative valuation models.

In the past we have charged crypto funds over $10,000 a month for this. But the retail value is worth at least $1,500 / month.

“Crypto Briefing (a publishing firm that covers blockchain and cryptos) and CoinMarketCap (CMC) are partnering to bring transparency and professional analyses of major blockchain ventures. 

“The institutional-grade SIMETRI is designed to ensure transparency and verifiable order book data from cryptocurrency exchanges, as well as provide in-depth fundamental analysis and unbiased insights into crypto projects.”

This is the media company I mentioned earlier, that we own and operate.

It’s one of the most successful and well-respected in the entire industry and we’ve turned it into a brand that stands for truth, honesty, and transparency.

Performance Methodology 
* All performance claims referenced above are calculated based on the 64 reports we have released since October 2018 which can be found at: 

* Performance calculations are based on reports with ratings of B- or higher with entry prices based on closing prices listed at CoinMarketcap on the day of publication. 

* Performance calculations are also based on position sizes relative to the grade, with higher grades receiving higher position sizes. 

For example, the hypothetical position sizes we used were as follows:
A+ = $60,000
A = $50,000
A- = $40,000
B+ = $30,000
B = $20,000
B- = $10,000
Grades of C+ and lower = $0

So how does SIMETRI work and how will it make YOU a very wealthy crypto investor? 

Ok, now that you have some background on how SIMETRI started, let me explain how SIMETRI works.

For full transparency, here are the results of all 11 Pick-of-the-Month reports since SIMETRI started until today.

That’s not too shabby considering the rest of the market went down during the same period ...

During the same period–July 9th, 2019 to June 8th, 2020 ...
