keypad is a listing site for tokens on the Binance Smart Chain that is based on merit. Different than other listing sites, we do not rely on public votes for our rankings. We use a clear scoring system that gives projects flexibility to move up. The items listed below are fully explained as to their importance and relevance.
keypad is improving transparency.
DOX / KYC / AUD / LOC / DEV / SCN / DEX / REG / BONUS
When a project's development team is doxed, they will receive this as checked. Doxing or doxxing is the act of publicly revealing previously private personal information about an individual or organization. For our purpose, full doxing is a developer revealing their full name and photo.
KYC or "Know Your Customer" is a background check for crypto developers. It stops bad actors from hiding as their doxing is verified and stored in case there is illegal activity or a "rugpull". This information can be turned over to authorities. When a developer has completed a KYC, they receive a certificate as proof from the provider.
BSC tokens use smart contracts as the basis of their token. These contracts can be audited by professional services. If there are no unresolved critical or selected major issues, the project will have this merit checked. Just having an audit is not the same as passing one.
A liquidity pool is a number of tokens locked in a smart contract used to facilitate trading between assets on an exchange. If unlocked, the developers have access to these funds. If LP is locked, the project will receive this merit as checked. Based on the length of the lock, the overall score will adjust.
The DEV merit is checked if the developers of the project are active and accessible in their Discord or Telegram chatrooms. This is based on actual feedback from their community and research by the keypad team.
For the SCAN merit, we run the token's contract through various scanners. These scanners look for warnings in LP, large wallets, and honeypots (not being able to sell). If there are critical issues from the scan that the keypad team view as dangerous, the project will not be listed on keypad. All projects on our site will have this checked.
The DEXT Score is an algorithm created by DEXTools. It measures information pulled from certain areas on the blockchain and external sources separate from the keypad criteria. Scores range from 1-99 with 99 being the highest measure of confidence. Projects with a score of 50 or higher will have this merit scored.
REG refers to whether or not a project is registered as a legitimate business. When a project is registered, they will receive a certificate as proof in their respective location of registration. This certificate is verified by the keypad team as they are often photoshopped by shady characters in the crypto space.
As rankings are based on our score, it is important to understand our scoring system. Scores range from 30-100. If our metrics result in a score less than 30, the token cannot be listed on keypad. If a merit is not scored, that merit gains zero points. A token with a score of 75 or higher earns a chart on their page.
In addition, the Super Bundle on Lynx Crypto will be heavily discounted to these elite tokens as shown below.
10 points are awarded if the developers are doxed. Points are lost if critical team members choose not to dox.
20 points are awarded if a KYC certificate is found and verified as authentic.
Points are awarded based on results from an accredited auditing service. If there are no critical or major issues to resolve within a token's contract code, 10 points are awarded. If there are unresolved major issues as defined by the keypad team, only 5 points are awarded. If there are critical issues, this merit has not been scored and zero points are given.
Scoring for locked LP ranges from 5-10 points. Lock time is based on our initial verification and are subject to change. To submit an update, please use our submit form.
LP locked less than 1 year receives 5 points.
LP locked 1-5 years receives 8 points.
LP locked 5 years or more receives 10 points.
As this merit can be seen as subjective, it's an all or nothing score. If this merit is given, it is an automatic 10 points.
As previously stated, a project must pass a contract scan's honeypot check to be listed on keypad. Like the DEV merit, this is an all or nothing 10 points.
A DEXT Score of 50 or higher will garner a score. To further breakdown this scoring:
A DEXT Score of 50-59 receives five points.
60-69 receives six points
70-79 receives seven points
80-89 receives eight points
90-95 receives nine points
96-99 receives all ten points
If a project proves to be a registered business entity in the USA, Canada, or the UK, the project receives 10 points. Any other jurisdiction will receive 9 points.
Projects under review will show on the main listings page without scores.
A token "card" receives bonus points if certain merits are displayed or linked on their official website or whitepaper. If a bonus is obtained, the score will show as blue.
Full doxing = 1 bonus point
Link to KYC on the provider's site = 1 bonus point
Link to audit(s) = 1 bonus point
Link to LP lock = 1 bonus point
Link to DEXtools chart = 1 bonus point
Link to business registration = 1 bonus point
A token is awarded 4 bonus points if KYC and/or Audit is provided by SEEK.
10 is the max for bonus points. Including the bonuses, a token can have a max score of 100 on keypad.
