What is Coingecko? Good source of data and analysis that you should know


What is Coingecko?

Everyone must have heard about it Coinmarketcap when we check every day the prices of coins on it, but maybe you won't know much about Coingecko? Launched in 2014, Coingecko has become one of the earliest and largest data aggregation tools in the industry, taking a more comprehensive approach to tracking tokens / coins (tokens) and cryptocurrency exchanges. . CoinGecko currently tracks more than 4.800 coins and more than 339 exchanges.

With the goal of improving cryptocurrency participants online, understanding the market fundamentals, founders TM Lee and Bobby Ong want to find more transparent ways to track cryptocurrencies. . Ong told Coin Rivet:

We believe that market capitalization is not a perfectly great measure of a valuable cryptocurrency because it has been highly manipulated.

CoinGecko provides an in-depth analysis of the cryptocurrency market

Instead of just tracking and measuring coins and tokens by market cap or trading by transaction volume, CoinGecko also keeps track of other key factors. These include project code development and open source development, community development, and other major events that affect its value.

Ong explained: For developer statistics, we track Github, Bitbucket and Gitlab. We count the number of confirmations, added / deleted lines, asterisks, branches and drag requests. For community stats, we follow Twitter followers, Facebook likes, Reddit subscribers, new posts and comments. We believe that by measuring community and developer statistics, we get a 360-degree overview of any particular cryptocurrency.

With thousands of cryptocurrencies on the market and new currencies being created each month, the CoinGecko team wants to help investors better understand the altcoins available to them by giving them as much truth as they can. Transparency and quality as possible. Just looking at the market capitalization is enough to go through as this can be easily manipulated.

And the current price compared to the peak has dropped by what percentage. In the past when I was calculating this, I always had to wobbly and recount old charts to calculate, it was very time consuming.

As you can see, For example child Bitcoin, at the time of writing, Current Bitcoin price is $ 7804, compared to the peak of $ 19.665, the price has decreased by 60.3%.

Developers (Developers)

This is where I check to see if their projects and development teams go up or down, whether their developers leave them or not Ahihi, you see. A project that developers leave no one else means its future is very gloomy ... However, this is also information for reference only, not decisive.
