What is Coinecko? Good data sources and analytics that you should know

Everyone has probably heard about it Coinmarketcap when every day we check the prices of coins on it, But maybe you won't know much about Coingecko?

Launched in 2014, Coinecko has become one of the industry's earliest and largest data aggregators, taking a more holistic approach to tracking tokens/coins and money exchanges. electronic. CoinGecko currently tracks over 12335 coins and over 553 exchanges.

So, what are the features and usage of Coinecko, please see the instructions below of BTA.

What is Coinecko?

Coinecko is a tracker of bitcoin prices and tokens as well as the actual trading volume of exchanges, a useful comparison tool for bitcoin investing.

With the goal of raising “crypto participants” understanding of the fundamental factors driving the market, TM founders Lee and Bobby Ong wanted to find more transparent ways to track crypto. . Ong told Coin Rivet:

We believe that market cap is not an entirely great measure of a valuable cryptocurrency because it is already highly manipulated.

Coinecko has always been my go-to site for some basic data analysis. It is very useful for judgments. Blogtienao has an agreement with the Founder of Coingecko that allows Blogtienao to use all of their data.

Blogtienao will rely on experience and user experience in Vietnam to design a copy that is more suitable for Vietnamese people, making it easier for you to analyze, hope you support.

How to buy/sell crypto on CoinGecko?

CoinGecko only provides trading information from various cryptocurrency exchanges around the world. To buy/sell a specific cryptocurrency, you can view the exchanges that sell it and go directly to the exchange's website.

For example, you can buy/sell Ethereum from the list of exchanges listed here: https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/ethereum#markets


Thus, the Virtual Currency Blog has helped you find a place to check prices as well as track analysis, which in itself is quite suitable for those who need to capture information in a simple way. It can help you analyze, research and thereby make the best investment decision. For many users, Coinmarketcap seems more difficult to use.
