# Value enabled by Rated

This page covers the methodology that powers the value enabled metric that Rated exposes on its landing page.

One of the key metrics that Rated tracks and seeks to optimize for. The idea behind its metric is to track the value that Rated’s API and related Rated services help create through the various integrations and services that use it as an input.

## Weighing mechanism

Given that there are varying degrees of value that Rated adds in different integration contexts, we have come up with a subjective weighing framework to roughly reflect how much value creation we believe Rated has enabled.

Class of enablement | Context | Weight |
---|---|---|

A | Owned product | 1 |

B | Product cannot function without Rated, but is owned jointly with partners | 0.75 |

C | Rated integration adds significant value, but the product can also function without it, albeit with a lot of extra effort required | 0.5 |

D | Rated integration adds value as core input, but is not essential | 0.25 |

E | Rated is a helpful input, but not essential | 0.05 |

## Calculating value enabled

Given the above framework then, the calculation of total value enabled for Rated becomes:

where `v`

is the respective total value the downstream integration powers (e.g. TVL, asset value underwritten etc) and `ce`

is the class of enablement weight as dictated but the table above.

### Current inputs in the calculation

The table below outlines the integrations that are powering the value enabled metric for Rated, along with their subjectively ascribed class of enablement.

Integration | Status | Context | v = n | ce |
---|---|---|---|---|

Lido |
| Rated has helped with Lido’s last 2 onboarding rounds of operators on the Ethereum set (Wave’s 3 and 4) | Total value staked on related operators | E |

Nexus Mutual |
| Rated is the source of truth and pricing partner for Nexus Mutual’s slashing and downtime insurance product | Total value of assets insured | C |
