CoinMarketCap tracks 1600 cryptocurrencies and 200 exchanges, representing a market cap of $400 billion.

CoinMarketCap — the leading cryptocurrency markets data and statistics website — has celebrated its fifth anniversary by releasing its first-ever mobile application, available for iOS, plus additional features.

The company unveiled the app in a blog post this week. The iOS application, like the desktop site, allows traders to stay up to date with market capitalization and live pricing information.

CoinMarketCap tracks 1600 cryptocurrencies and 200 exchanges, representing a market cap of $400 billion.

Customers can simply add digital currencies to a personal watchlist via the app by navigating to the listing of that cryptocurrency and clicking the star shaped icon or directly from the watchlist page using the “…” menu.

It’s important to note that the watchlist uses cookies to store your preferences on the device that’s in use. In the future CoinMarketCap plans to add an option to sync traders’ personal watchlists between different devices.

A new version of the public API has been released that fixes some minor issues. A commercial API, which will feature historical data, is currently in development and users can sign up to receive updates on its progress.

The company also revealed a new logo and website design and is currently the 174th most visited website globally according to Amazon’s Alexa, overseeing over 60 million unique visits year-to-date.

Take a look at the new iOS mobile app design below. For now, an Android app is not available to download.

In early January, CoinMarketCap unexpectedly removed South Korean exchange valuations from its reported averages, causing a significant decline in the overall market cap and individual coin prices over a short time.

Around the same time, the cryptocurrency data website reported that the total cryptocurrency market capitalization had risen above $800 billion. However, this figure has now slipped to around half that amount.

You can learn all about different exchanges, understand exactly how to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, calculate your taxes, discover digital wallets to hold assets and explore a list of all the alternative coins on the market.
