CoinMarketCap announces upgrades, possible Android version coming
The website most often quoted when mentioning cryptocurrency values and other market data is getting a facelift. CoinMarketCap announced yesterday a number of changes to its site that will enhance the visitor experience and make it more user-friendly.
According to a CoinMarketCap Twitter post, the company said, "Today we have released style changes across the site. Additionally, there is a Night Mode switch in the top header, the Watchlist limit has been increased to 250, and we’ve updated the search function on mobile to make it easier to access. Please let us know what you think!"
According to the data analytics website Alexa, CoinMarketCap is among the top 300 visited sites in the world. It has become the go-to for crypto-related information and its success has spawned competition from companies such as Thomson Reuters, who recently announced that it was enhancing its cryptocurrency tracking capabilities.
CoinMarketCap hasn’t always been a crowd-favorite. It made a decision this past January that caused a little bit of a controversy when it delisted three Korean exchanges from the calculated price averages for crypto. The removal sparked immediate criticism, as it made it appear as though the value of the cryptocurrencies had suddenly and unexpectedly taken a nosedive.
Despite the backlash, CoinMarketCap has continuously risen in popularity and just last month launched a mobile app of its platform for iOS devices. In tweeting about the new enhancements this week, several users asked about a version for Android, and the company representative indicated that it will be available soon.
