Just beginning your crypto journey (or know somebody else who is)? One of the first places you’ll want to visit – and a site you’ll want to come back to frequently – is CoinMarketCap.com. Here’s an introduction to the main features of the site and how it’s useful to you as a potential cryptocurrency investor.
No time to watch? Here’s a quick rundown of the basics:
- CoinMarketCap provides real-time and historical data on almost every crypto token’s price, market cap, trading volume, and more.
- It’s a good place to start your research of a coin, as it has links to resources like official sites, messageboards, Github accounts, and social media accounts
- Use the “markets” tab to see which exchanges handle the most volume for any given coin if you’re looking for a market to buy the coin
