HackerNoon Introduces Coin Pages in Collaboration With CoinMarketCap to Track the Prices and Popularity of the Internet's Biggest Cryptocurrencies
Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies are now being closely tracked by HackerNoon through Coin Pages powered by CoinMarketCap. Readers can view these pages to see daily changes in each coin's price and market cap alongside recently published stories.
EDWARDS, Colo., October 24, 2022 (Newswire.com) - HackerNoon, a website focused on publishing stories about technology, has launched new coin pages to track popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. The coin data is constantly updated, tracking changes in each currency over a period of 24 hours.
"As the crypto space is evolving, so is HackerNoon," wrote CEO David Smooke in an article announcing these new pages. "Our next step is to give our readers and writers better data within our technology publishing platform."
By default, the list of coin pages is ranked according to market cap. "Too much of the crypto and mainstream media talk about Bitcoin breaking $10k, $20k, $50k," wrote David, "but in reality, what they should be talking about is the market cap. This simple but important distinction is missed by most mainstream media." Coins ranked at the top currently include Bitcoin, Ethereum, and XRP. Viewers can also sort this list by price and price change, as well as alphabetical order.
The prices are tracked in collaboration with CoinMarketCap. Through combining their information with HackerNoon's own engineering, each page contains a graph tracking changes in a currency's price over time. These pages also provide information on each currency's trading volume and circulating supply, giving readers the chance to see how each coin's popularity has changed over time.
Coin pages will also help distribute stories written by HackerNoon contributors. Each currency on the list of pages is paired with the latest article that includes that currency as a topic. When viewing a page, it's also possible to see a curated list of HackerNoon stories alongside stories from other websites surrounding the chosen coin. HackerNoon offers these stories as a way to help readers and hodlers keep track of trending topics in relation to various cryptocurrencies.
In the future, HackerNoon hopes to add detailed descriptions to every currency on the list, providing information on each coin's history and milestones. Nearly every page contains a short description; more popular currencies have entire paragraphs detailing their criticisms and claims to fame.
"We're concentrating on integrating more API-driven data sources about companies, cryptocurrencies, software and people," wrote David. "These coin price pages will be a quantitative and qualitative destination to learn more about what's happening with every top cryptocurrency."
