The required SVET Review Format:
- The Header (Title Of The Review): ‘(… name of the project ..) Review and SVET Rating’. Example: ‘Monero Review and SVET Rating’
- Intro: SVET.(… category…) Rating ( … 4 Deeps … ). Example: ‘SVET.Vision (Singularity — Volume — Empathy — Timing)’.
- Content (Review and Rating Text): Each Deeps is to be addressed in the review orderly in several paragraphs, one-by-one and must be concluded by assigning a rating to a given Deep. An expected length of the SVET Review and Rating ~ 1000 words.
- The Footer (Rating Total): ( … name of the project ….)’s SVET.(… category…) Rating ( … 4 Deeps … ): x / x / x / x. Example: ‘Monero’s SVET.Vision (Singularity — Volume — Empathy — Timing) Rating: a / a / b- / a’
*) Note, in case you have some notable involvements with rated projects (f .e, you are an advisor, founder — or his/her relative, employee, contractor etc) you have to explicitly state that fact in the Review.
NOTE: The links to all sources of information which were used to rate a project must be listed at the end of the Rating. All quotes in the Rating’s text must be referenced to those links.

Example (fictitious): ‘A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution.’

A Rating Update:
A SVET Rating Update presents itself a short (100–150 words) post which starts with the Deeps Name and a text consisting of a quote from a recognized source (with a corresponding reference) followed by an Author’s proposition (incl. reasoning) to update (or to not) an existing rating.
Example (fictitious) of the Ethereum Network’s SVET.Security Rating Update:
Ethereum Network’s SVET.Security Rating Update: Quote: “ The Ethereum Foundation has published a blog post outlining a potentially catastrophic vulnerability that could have resulted in the mainnet being brought down at a cost of less than five-figures up until the execution of the Berlin hard fork last month.”
[Source: Coin Telegraph; Author: Samuel Haig; Published: May 19, 2021 Link: https://cointelegraph.com/news/patched-vulnerability-could-ve-crippled-eth-over-the-past-2-years-ethereum-foundation].
That vulnerability has been timely identified and patched. It hasn’t caused any material breaches in the network’s security. As a result Ethereum ‘Security’ Rating remains unchanged (‘a’).
