The Superbloom Quotient relies on three key factors: analysis, syndicate consensus, and transparent due diligence. Each project goes through extensive analysis based on a series of metrics including ranking of the team, token economics, technology, how well it solves a problem, and the likelihood the team will deliver. After a project passes analysis, we look to Superbloom syndicate members for consensus.\nOnce this process occurs, Superbloom conducts transparent due diligence with at least one meeting with the founders of the company as well as fact-checking all the aspects of the company, talking to advisors, as well as previous investors to confirm all facts.\nThe project development started around June 2017.
