Key Developments

Key Developments are events that impact particular assets or the broader cryptoeconomy as a whole.


Messari Intel monitors events under Key Developments and provides real-time updates and detailed analyses of major events for over 400 protocols. Intel events can be thought of as the crypto-equivalent to corporate actions, or any material changes to assets or protocols that are relevant to project stakeholders, infrastructure providers, compliance teams, exchanges, custodians, regulators, and researchers.

Event Filters & Classifications

All events are classified according to the Messari Event Taxonomy Guide to add additional context around events. Event classification includes Importance, Categories, Subcategories, Tags, and Statuses. You can also filter events by Asset/Watchlist to narrow them down to assets that are important to you.

Exports and Alerts

You can export the list of events by selecting the dropdown export arrow to the right of the Key Developments table under the Intel tab. You can also create event alerts by selecting the Create Alert bell icon located on the upper right-hand side of the page.
