Weiss Ratings, an investment rating agency, published their first list of cryptocurrency ratings in Jan. 2018. A little over a year later, CryptoSlate interviewed Dr. Martin Weiss, founder and chairman of Weiss Group, on the importance of a rating system for cryptocurrencies, as well as the future of payments, cryptocurrency adoption, and the challenges currently faced by the blockchain industry.
The Weiss Group founder studied political science as an undergraduate at New York University. He also holds Masters and Ph.D. certificates in Cultural Anthropology from Columbia University. Interestingly, Dr. Weiss happens to be a polyglot with knowledge of Cantonese, French, German, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese, and Spanish at the Berlitz School of Languages.
