, up to their current repertoire, of over 1,600 cryptocurrencies and 200 exchanges

The re-brand see’s CoinMarketCap take a cutting-edge approach to branding and design, most significantly though the logo no longer integrates a Bitcoin
symbol, suggesting that CoinMarketCap are dropping any affiliation with the Bitcoin movement. This is hardly surprising when you consider how many new currencies have entered the markets in the past five years, since the first CoinMarketCap logo was created.
CoinMarketCap remains one of the most important cryptocurrency websites. The site provides up to date information and historical data on the performance of cryptocurrencies, without these feeds, it would be very difficult for investors to do research and make live decisions, really, CoinMarketCap have done us a service, one which many now no doubt take for granted.
Furthermore, to celebrate their birthday, CoinMarketCap are launching an iOS app, which promises to bring live market information on the go. The app also integrates a watch-list, allowing users to really personalise their CoinMarketCap experience.
Other celebrations include an upgrade of the public API and new watch-list integrations that will allow you to carry your watched currencies over different devices, perfect if you’re an on the go investor.
Thank you CoinMarketCap for your service.
