The Ignite RATINGS platform was made first publicly available on 30 September 2018. Strictly speaking, although boasting a lot of rich features and functionality, the Ignite RATINGS platform remains in public beta as we continue to bug fix, refine and deploy value-adding features. The below is a public record of that ongoing development.

Update — 7 October 2018
- New feature — asset filtering.
Update — 17 October 2018
- Various changes made to the comments module, the most significant of which is the introduction of editing — all submissions now remain editable for a period of 10 minutes, or until another user has submitted a response, whichever is soonest;
- Sort logic for assets tweaked to exclude assets which have not yet surpassed critical mass;
- “Top 3 Cryptos” in the dashboard changed to “Top 3 Rated Assets” and comprised of ICOs and Cryptos;
- Ticker symbol duplication fixed;
- Permitted comment size adjusted to 1,024 characters; and
- Social media sharing enabled for news items.
Update — 4 November 2018
- Sticky selected asset removed — previously, an already selected asset would remain in the asset list when switching between ICOs and Crypto. This was by design, but was found to be confusing for users;
- Sticky selected asset removed from filtered lists — per the above, an already selected asset continued to be displayed when the asset list was filtered, even if the asset did not meet the filtering criteria;
- Mobile fix — top ICO and top Crypto assets would open automatically, without being requested, when user selecting to view the ratings lists. This is fixed;
- ICO and Crypto assets were, from time to time, being jumbled in the asset ratings list if certain steps were followed — this should now be fixed;
- Ratings overview sorting patched to prevent bug that was retaining top asset in the asset list when filtered by Newest to Oldest, Or Oldest to Newest. The same bug also zeroed out the star rating;
- Database updated with missing asset data and patch applied to data pull procedures to fix connectivity issues with third party data sources;
- Wallet refresh frequency improved — IGNT balances should update more quickly;
- Notifications bug fixed, whereby switching off “Sway” notifications was not actually stopping the notifications;
- Intermittent notifications bug which was seeing some users receive more than one notification for the same event has been fixed; and
- Fixed display of 24hr ratings change as negative change was being reported as positive.

- Mobile improvements — better scrolling and user interface;
- “Top 3” rated assets changed to “Top Rated” assets with lazy load scrolling;
- Fixed intermittent bug with lazy scroll on ratings not always working; and
- Tweaks to critical mass calculation algorithm.
