Coinmarketcap.com is a complete and up-to-date site that shows the price movements of all digital assets in the world. As of August 2016, there are already more than 690 digital assets listed on this site. Until now, Bitcoin still occupies the first position as a digital asset with the largest market cap in the world. This site can also be used to compare the exchange rate for a digital asset on various exchanges around the world.
Its mission is to make crypto discoverable and efficient globally by empowering retail users with unbiased, high-quality, and accurate information to draw conclusions based on their own information.
Founded by Brandon Chez in May 2013, CoinMarketCap has quickly grown to be the most trusted source by users, institutions, and the media for comparing thousands of crypto assets and is typically cited by CNBC, Bloomberg, and other major news outlets. (Even the US government uses CoinMarketCap data for research and reports!)
In April 2020, CoinMarketCap was acquired by Binance Capital Mgmt. Binance is the global blockchain company behind the world’s largest digital asset exchange by trading volume and users, who share a common vision to make crypto accessible and systemically important to people around the world.
Through the acquisition, CoinMarketCap plans to leverage its parent company’s extensive resources to get deeper data into the project, reduce information asymmetry in the crypto industry and bring higher quality data to its hundreds of millions of users.
CoinMarketCap stands for accurate, timely and unbiased information. Since being acquired by Binance in early 2020, CoinMarketCap has continued to operate independently of its parent company. Read our disclosure policy for more information.
