Best Crypto Market Table Website
What is one of the first crypto market data sources that you come across as a crypto-noob? What is one of the first that the market KOLs will use in their online videos? Answer: CoinMarketCap.com
And CMC is fine to begin with. It arranges the whole market in market cap order or that of another column heading. It has good crosslinks with altcoin website URLs and which exchanges each is on, not to mention a plethora of historic charts. But the more you trade, the more you want from your market tables.
Ask a seasoned crypto person about alternatives to using CoinMarketCap.com and they will probably jump to mentioning LiveCoinWatch.com, which while certainly more aesthetically pleasing and menu-tastic than CMC, still leaves room for improvement.
For myself, I had a very specific brief for what I wanted from a coin table website – something that combined a one-hour price change column with the ability to filter out all of the coins that weren’t available on the exchanges that I personally traded on. CMC offers the 1-hour column … if you know how to find it. (It’s not there by default when you load the page.) The problem then is that you still get 90% of the coins appearing that are not on Binance for example.
LCW, on the other hand, lets you save your trading pairs by exchange, but you will be there for a while, finishing this manual setup on all available pairs. You can at least save a user profile/account for later reference. Screen space use is more efficient than CMC but wait until you discover CoinCheckup.com.
Unlike the other product we wanted to review for you (Coindera Pro) this one is much harder to discover by accident. Sadly it appears some way down several pages of Google search results, depending on your criteria, and in our case CoinCheckup was a tip the review author received when he was a member of the Insider programme at CryptosRUs.
True, coin❖trellis doesn’t currently use CoinCheckup for its own market tables, but, as CC grows and they offer their own APIs and widgets, we will be sure to embed them.
CC’s use of colour shading in the timeframe price change columns makes it really easy to get an overview for price action in any coin/token. However, what really sets CC apart is the powerful filtering options.
If you want to screen out coins under or over a certain level of volatility or age, then now you can. With a few quick mouse clicks you can show just the pairs available on the exchanges you use, or save your own coin list for automatic display on future visits.
It should be stated before we close that CC is built upon pricing data provided by CMC and CryptoCompare, so credit where credit is due, but it is high time that something as versatile and flexible as CC was available to the crypto community. CoinCheckup markets itself as the crypto research platform and it is ideally suited for users wanting to dig more deeply into individual coins as well as price trends and predictions.
Crypto data services are in rapid evolution, and, to some extent, playing catch-up to the needs of users and traders. So use this from now on … or at least until something better comes along in six months’ time.
