Thanks for hunting @stvmcg what drove you to build this and where is the data sourced from?

@abadesi Great question! CoinMarketCap is the biggest cryptocoin index and they have been struggling to meet demand over the last 12-months. That being said, CoinGenome is a real-time version of CMC with a social element that pulls Data from multiple index APIs and exchanges. People can follow, discuss, and now chart their favorites cryptocurrencies.

Nice UI and cool potential replacement for CoinMarketCap, but I would also like to know how the data is being calculated.

@aviggiano 👍 the real-time Data is being collected from multiple index’s (Including CMC) and large cryptocurrency exchanges. The more data the better 😉 Thoughts on the forum or follow features?

Hey, looks great. How do you combine the data from CMC and exchanges? I understand exchange data are usually volume weighted, how do CMC data fit into that? Another question, why is there ID verification section in the user backend?

@_karlvonbahnhof CMC data is a good resource for charts and exchange data is great for real time prices. The goal is to merge them together on one index. Right now most of the data is coming from other indexes. Real-time data for 2k coins is tricky. The ID verification was a test from our admin panel. If you apply you’ll be approved without ID that shouldn’t be showing😮 so thanks for pointing that out 😮

@stvmcg ok, that does not sound like a great data integrity :D i understand it's a lot of data though. i'd just like to see a tool that is not dependent on CMC and maybe has a couple of meaningfully created indexes (some places have the option to exclude korea for instance). What are your future goals with the platform? I'll give you a shoutout from my blog altcointrading.net/tools

Firstly, yes organizing data for more than 2k coins that too realtime can be tricky but I found it quite similar to CryptoCompare.com. So I have one question @stvmcg: How does CoinGenome compare to CryptoCompare?

@sromana14 Awesome question. In short, simplifying the interface and data viz to allow more mainstream investors to follow along. Also the simpler design goes with the playful theme of the name ;) "A genome is the complete set of genes or genetic material present in a cell or organism." So simplifying 2k coins by their most important indicators was the primary mission of CoinGenome. I admire CryptoCompare and the level of information, news, ICOs, exchanges, wallets, mining, portfolios, coin comparisons, etc. that they provide users, but to reach less experienced/beginners I'd argue that platforms need to be way more simple to accommodate investors new to the space.

@stvmcg Sounds great! Simplification is really needed. Wish you all the luck in your venture.
