Service for tracking the movements of cryptocurrency rates CoinMarketCap, which has become the most popular tool for obtaining information of this kind, despite some controversial points, today is 5 years old. The creators decided to celebrate this event with the release of their first mobile application for iOS, the rebranding of the site and the announcement of preparations for the expansion of functionality..
As TechCrunch notes, despite the fact that users have been waiting for a long time for the release of the official application, many crypto enthusiasts already have their own preferences in the field of tools for tracking rates and portfolios on their mobile devices, with most of these applications using the CoinMarketCap API..
The CoinMarketCap application has functionality similar to the main site, it allows you to sort cryptocurrencies by capitalization, name, price and its change over the last 24 hours. Users can add digital assets to the watchlist, but cannot build their own portfolios based on them, so this offer will not replace portfolio trackers.
Among the bugs, it is worth noting the fact that the application shows the currency corresponding to the user’s region, but in fact the price corresponds to the dollar value.
Despite the more modest functionality compared to competitors’ offerings, representatives of CoinMarketCap are confident that their application will be in demand due to a recognizable brand.
In addition to launching the application, CoinMarketCap changed its logo, updated the API and promised to expand the service’s capabilities in the future..
“We monitor incoming user requests, pay attention to what people want to see and how they can get the most from our data. We are delighted to be able to meet many requests today, ”said Brandon Chaz, CEO of CoinMarketCap..
