We do manual research for every asset we cover. At minimum, we have to identify reliable eventual-supply information, and document the sources we used. Often this also involves modeling out the asset's supply curve (in code) in order to obtain our Y2050 Supply figure, which is a key metric we offer for all assets. Additionally we try to understand & document the core purpose, market, sector(s), and asset-type for the assets we list.
We expect to be able to increase the pace of asset coverage substantially in the first quarter of 2018.
We add assets roughly in descending network-value (marketcap) order. Given that it takes time to research assets, and rank can change fast, we can't guarantee any strict order of additions, but it's roughly biggest (by network value) first.
No. We appreciate the interest, but please stop asking. We'll get to your coin in due course.
The Y2050 figures are not predictions! Marketcap is simply current price * supply. For our "Y2050 Marketcap" figure, we are using the expected supply in the year 2050 as the supply figure for that equation. Thus this represents how the market is currently valuing the asset on a ~fully diluted basis.
We strive to provide many metrics, explain how we compute them as clearly as possible, and let our users decide how much merit they have. We think marketcap has its place. For high-liquidity coins, it's a more stable metric than for low-liquidity coins (where relatively small market actions can significantly impact the figure). We suggest that marketcap be thought of more as a way to compare one asset to another vs assign an overall value to the asset as a whole.
We offer many metrics, and you can configure your homepage view however you want, including removing marketcap from the view entirely.
The total marketcap figures we calculate are based on the assets we cover. Since we do not cover as many assets as some other sites, our total current marketcap figure comes out slightly smaller. This difference is becoming smaller as we add more asset coverage.
Blockchain and distributed ledgers vary greatly in how transactions are recorded and executed. It can therefore be very difficult to accurately determine even pretty simple values such as daily transaction volume, or even just number of economic transactions. Additionally, it's difficult to compare the values obtained between certain types of assets. See our metrics section and various write-ups on Coin Metrics for more information on this topic.
Not yet, but we will!
First we're developing a much better mobile-browsing experience, but ultimately we intend to provide an app as well.
Cryptoasset taxonomy is a work in progress. We use a combination of our own opinions and classifications used by other industry organizations.
We calculate current price as an average of the last-trade price from the exchanges we integrate with for a particular asset, weighted by the exchanges' 24hr USD trade volume for the asset.

The Bletchley 10 is composed of 10 of the largest cryptoassets, weighted by marketcap. As such, it tends to track the 'large-caps'.
The Bletchley 20 is composed of 20 medium-capitalization cryptoassets.
The Bletchley 40 is composed of 40 small-capitalization cryptoassets.
