An open question is a question that needs to be answered with a free form text. You can be asked anything from naming the most promising upcoming token sale to providing your trading strategy under given market circumstances. Every open question has its own set of minimum and maximum number of characters its answer should contain. Please be polite and precise — all of your answers will be read by real people.
How are points calculated for open questions?
Currently all answers to open questions are manually reviewed and graded on a scale of 0-100% by Cindicator’s analytical department after the question is closed. The maximum positive points available are stated for each question. You will receive from zero to maximum points according to your grade: points = max_points * grade.
The open question is simple, and nothing to be scared of! Think of it as an opportunity to speak your mind, and hopefully gain some points. Analysts on the Cindicator platform come from a wide variety of backgrounds, with different understandings and insights into the cryptocurrency world. The crypto markets represent a new asset class, one that is struggling to be understood by users, developers and regulators alike. Do not be afraid to express new and experimental ideas!
There is no possibility of losing points here, so take some time, read up on the topic at hand, and give your feedback. The worst that can happen is you might not gain any points — in my experience it is a fun exercise, I have ended up learning some things, developed some new ideas, and generally scored pretty well. It doesn’t need to be a dissertation, just a reasonable, considered response.
