The service for tracking the movements of the courses, CoinMarketCap, which has become the most popular tool for obtaining information of this kind, despite some contradictory moments, today turned 5 years old. This event the creators decided to celebrate the release of their first mobile application for iOS, rebranding the site and the announcement of the preparations for the expansion of functionality.
As noted by TechCrunch, despite the fact that users have long expected the release of the official application, many crypto enthusiasts already have their own preferences in the field of tools for tracking the courses and portfolios on their mobile devices, and most of these applications use the API CoinMarketCap.
The CoinMarketCap application has a functionality similar to the main site, it allows you to sort the cryptocurrency by capitalization, name, price and its change in the last 24 hours. Users can add digital assets to the list for tracking, but they can not create their own portfolios based on them, so this offer will not replace the portfolio trackers.
Among the bugs is worth noting the fact that the application shows the currency corresponding to the user’s region, but in fact the price corresponds to the dollar value.
Despite the more modest functionality compared to the proposals of competitors, representatives of CoinMarketCap are confident that their application will be in demand thanks to a recognizable brand.
In addition to launching the application, CoinMarketCap changed the logo, updated the API and promised to expand the service capabilities in the future.
“We monitor the incoming requests of users, pay attention to what people want to see and how they can get the most out of our data. We are glad that we can meet a lot of requests today,” said Brandon Chez, CEO of CoinMarketCap.
