CoinMarketCap To Have An Android App?

According to recent reports, it seems that one of the most popular cryptocurrency data providers, CoinMarketCap has launched its first Android app and revamped its Apple iOS product. It can be noted that the app apparently offers features that are yet not available on the website like, portfolio tracking, candlestick charts and side-by-side cryptocurrency comparisons, as well as price alerts and user accounts, the data provider announced Tuesday.

Carylyne Chan, CoinMarketCap’s Head of Marketing said,

“We believe that our users will like the new style and the features we’ve added to these apps, and we’ll continue to update the app regularly based on the feedback we receive.”

Users now will have to sign up for a CoinMarketCap account on the apps so as to save their portfolios or watchlists. The firm revealed that it also is planning to allow app accounts to be synced with the website at some point in the future.

The mobile products also feature a section for crypto “gainers” and “losers,” as well as curated industry news, according to CoinMarketCap. All the data that has been provided on the apps are made available through its API product, which was launched last August.

Just last month, CoinMarketCap also launched two benchmark indices covering the top 200 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization – one with bitcoin (BTC) and the other without – on financial data feeds from Nasdaq Global Index Data Service (GIDS), Bloomberg Terminal, Thomson Reuters Eikon (Refinitiv) and Germany’s Börse Stuttgart, as well as on its own platform.

The data provider also recently added crypto asset letter grades to its platform from blockchain analytics startup Flipside. The Fundamental Crypto Asset Score (FCAS) metric developed by Flipside evaluates factors such as developer activity and a broad set of transaction data.

CoinMarketCap initially launched its iOS app in May of last year on the occasion of its fifth anniversary.
