The China Electronic Information Industry Development (CCID) of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has published the first in a series of technology assessments centred on cryptocurrency and blockchain.

The Global Public Chain Technology Assessment Index, besides being the third long-winded name used in this story, ranked different cryptocurrencies by their “applicability”, “creativity” an underlying infrastructure. Each was given a score out of 100.

Although the report will be updated monthly by the CCID and China Software Testing Center – a think tank – it already has some interesting results.

Ranked top by the CCID is Ethereum, with a technology score of 80.3, applicability score of 23.7 and creativity score of 25.4. It has a total score of 129.4. Steem, Lisk, NEO, Komodo took 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place with scores of 115.9, 104.8, 103.0 and 101.5.

Steem was rated the highest for infrastructure technology, with the rating of 82.6, while NEO had the best applicability performance with a score of 26.6.

Bitcoin’s ranked may raise a few eyebrows, with the CCID placing it in 13th overall, behind almost all of its major rivals apart from Ripple (17th), Dash (18th) and Litecoin (21st). Bitcoin received technology score of 39.4 and an applicability score of 13.1. However, it came top of the pile when it comes to creativity, getting a score of 35.6.
