We had noticed that as per our old calculation once the channel became the hottest and went inactive for few days, the channel would still remain on top of the chart.
To give a fair chance to all the channel owners, we will now be calculating hotness of all the channels as per their activity of last 30 days only.
The hottest channel will be the one sharing fastest and the maximum deals in the last 30 days.
