CoinMarketCap is one of the most popular websites for crypto price data, and it just announced that it’s making a few changes to the platform.
CoinMaketCap gets updated
CoinMarketCap said that it has beefed up its coin watchlist feature as well as updated its mobile-focused search function “to make it easier to access.”
The exact tweet reads: “Today we have released style changes across the site. Additionally, there is a Night Mode switch in the top header, the Watchlist limit has been increased to 250, and we’ve updated the search function on mobile to make it easier to access. Please let us know what you think!”

CoinMarketCap launched the first mobile app for iOS users in May.
The iOS app features:
- Market cap rankings and pricing info for all cryptocurrencies
- Watchlist to easily track the cryptocurrencies that most interest you
- Search functionality
- No account or sign up required
Users are asking for an Android app
Now, people are already asking developments for a second app that is compatible with Android. You can see this in the comments section under the tweet.
“Hello, we are working on the Android mobile application; it is coming soon. Thank you for your patience,” the platform answered.
The site’s popularity has been growing during the past few years, and it’s currently positioned in the top 300 of the world’s most visited sites, according to data from Alexa.
Earlier this year, CoinMarketCap was heavily criticized over a decision to remove three Korean exchanges from their calculated averages.
This led to prices for Bitcoin and more cryptos to appear as if they had suddenly plunged.
Brandon Chez, the computer programmer and owner behind CoinMarketCap, wanted to address the issue and told the Wall Street Journal in an email that the company’s aim “was and still is to remain a neutral and accurate source for the cryptocurrency community.”
