    Coingecko has easy access links to the biggest movers, highest volumes as well as newest coins. I use the site for confirmation of money moving into Alts or if it’s moving into Bitcoin.

    It’s a neat app/ website. Check it out if you haven’t already πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’― E21DBE30-5E35-47D5-9A30-ADFE106CF9BE.png

    Coingecko is a very solid platform. A lot of respect from me for what they are doing because coinmarketcap is surely not making it easy for new investors to not get burned.

    Data aggregator is going to be a new buzz word in this space as having a platform with access to so much data on crypto and comparing it in a useful way is going to set these guys apart.

    I already use more so than coin market cap a lot of times, so I think CoinGecko is going in the right direction here. Love this guys enthusiasm and recognition of what limits coin market caps limitations πŸ‘πŸΌ

  • @hafijur-rahman

    Coingecko is a very solid and very powerful platform. Many greetings and compliments from me for what they are doing, because Coin MarketCap is certainly not gonna be easy for new investors to ignite

  • @coingecko

    Excited to see Bobby Ong being interviewed by's own @andrarchy! Looking forward for us to do more stuff together in the future.

  • @awesomianist

    @coingecko and and crossover w00t w00t!

    If you're in the cryptospace and consider yourself serious, you should know that market cap means little to nothing anymore. CoinGecko's Trust Score algoritm will be the first of its kind as the market becomes smarter and realise there is more to a coin that just trading volume and price per coin.

    Thanks boss for the shoutout about myself and @superoo7 going to Steemfest πŸ˜†. For those going, see you guys there!

    if the whole world runs on getting shares of inflation and the mighty dollar thinks it can, but it can't and everyone keeps ignoring that, than it's only normal for daddy-money school boys to think that's just how it works, ignoring basic math and rules of nature ...

    the original concept of bitcoin / cryptoken on an immutable ledger ... was 21 million CAP and STOP ...

    so ...

    all the crypto-anarchists and cypherpunks have gone back or staid in the shadows and Crypton has been taken over by marketeers and wanna-wall-street-whale-street whales who think you can smile at a moving train and make it go away. Well, they will tell you that as they grab that backpack full of money and get ready to jump while you stand staring ... smoke and mirrors

    affiliate marketing links were downvoted until a year ago, now its featured by the-company-who-doesnt-own-the-blockchain-that-belongs-to-everyone ...

    ... you DO KNOW this is public , right, all of it, everyone across the planet can read it, you should be careful with the fairy tales ...

    the coingecko is pretty solid and the api is pretty useful but i always wondered what they brought to the platform and the value of the STEEM/SBD coin ...

    because its just more marketing and selling a brand at the cost of, ....

    i'll gladly stand corrected when the price hits $1 by december as the masses come in to play facebook(but good content!) on a paywall for the middle-classes (who for some reason are believed to be all idiots who suck up fairy tales for breakfast)

    until then .....

    i'll stand un-corrected ... what a load of shit (but i'll vote on the post b/c it gets me more curation rewards, which makes it 'good' content for someone who has nothing but lost money by buying steem so far )

    enjoy the ride ... i saw the whales have had their post rewards halved on tuesday

    It would be good if you could at least cross upload your videos to a Steem friendly site like @threespeak in addition to YouTube. Many of us try to avoid delivering eyeballs and revenue to Google these days.

  • @damion117

    Coinmarketcap is I feel a greatly beneficial tool that can provide accurate details pertaining to a specified cyrptocurrency. I also feel Coinmarketcap is a solid informative source here to stay.

    coingecko is the best crypto aggregator. They are really engaging in what they do and going deep in blockchain ecosystem. I support their steem witness.

  • @omrfrq18

    Thanks for this post.

  • @antonio.vlasov

    @Coingecko has a more complex shell. But at the same time he has more useful information, and I will also advise other coingecko. Thanks for the information, I will probably use it now.

    There is no beneficiary set on the blockchain. Maybe you plan to send the rewards manually? If so, please post proof of transfer after the payout.

    Also, I've been a fan of coingecko for years. Great site/service.

  • @perry0gerhardt

    I dont really trust it as I have been seeing a lot of backlash from users, im currently eyeing coinspace which would be a better alternative for cryptocurrency data.. I hope it would be out on beta this year!
