New to crypto? Want to make the most out of what CMC offers? Here is a list of popular features and tools to help you get started!
Since our launch in May 2013, CoinMarketCap has massively expanded in scope and utility.
Once a simple indexer for cryptocurrency prices and trading data, CoinMarketCap now consists of a growing suite of tools, services and features used to empower and inform the crypto community.
But we find that many users don’t benefit from the full breadth of what CoinMarketCap offers.
So, if you’re new to CoinMarketCap or cryptocurrencies and want to make the most of what the site offers, we break down the main CoinMarketCap features and tools to help you get started.

Cryptocurrency Prices and Ranking
Our flagship feature, the cryptocurrency prices and ranking section of the website is by far our most used tool and is checked daily by millions of cryptocurrency users worldwide.
By selecting a specific cryptocurrency, you'll find an overview of the asset and its purpose, details about its supply and trading volume, a list of its trading markets, and more.
As it stands, CoinMarketCap ranks over 22,200 different cryptocurrencies by market capitalization — with new coins and tokens indexed every day.
To help you get a better picture of how the cryptocurrency rankings have changed over time, CoinMarketCap provides a simple snapshot feature.
By selecting a historical snapshot, you'll see the cryptocurrency market overview as it was for that date, including the rank, market capitalization and price of a cryptocurrency at your selected date.
If you’re anything like most traders, then you’ve got your eye on a slew of different cryptocurrencies.
Keeping track of dozens or potentially hundreds of cryptocurrencies manually can be a daunting task, but the CoinMarketCap tracker makes it a whole lot simpler.
Your portfolio is completely private and can be edited or deleted at any time.
CoinMarketCap Academy is our very own universal crypto library — designed to provide a comprehensive resource for all things cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
Academy provides a wide range of materials that help you keep tabs on the latest crypto happenings and educate yourself about the latest projects, technologies and innovations.
With over 4,000 articles contributed by close to 150 authors, Academy has one of the most extensive collections of crypto content available anywhere.
Ranging from crypto basics to trading analysis, how-to guides, market research and more, Academy has something for everyone.
Gainers & Losers
If you’re constantly looking for the best and worst-performing cryptocurrencies, then the gainers and losers page can be a useful time saver.
The results only include coins/tokens that achieved more than $50,000 in 24hr trading volume, helping to filter illiquid assets.
At present, CoinMarketCap tracks three main types of cryptocurrency exchanges:
- Centralized: Exchanges that are owned and operated by a centralized entity — usually simpler to use but requiring user trust.
- Decentralized: Decentralized protocols that provide asset trading services, such as automated market makers (AMMs) and decentralized order books. More secure but more complicated.
- Derivatives (CEX/DEX): Exchanges used to trade derivative instruments like futures, options and swaps. Most complicated.
NFT Market Overview
By clicking 'View More,' you can access live stats for the most prominent NFT collections, including Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, Clone X, Azuki, and almost 3000 other collections.
Or you can use the category and platform selectors to narrow your search to include only specific collections.
If you regularly need to calculate the value of one asset priced in another, the converter calculator can be a great time-saver.
Today, the chain ranking page tracks over 150 independent blockchains, including well-established platforms like Ethereum and BNB Chain, as well as newer options like Optimism, Cronos, and Moonbeam.
Through the chain ranking page, you can easily track the TVL change and market capitalization of each platform, giving you a quick look at the L1/L2 landscape as it stands.

CMC Earn is our pioneering educational initiative. It allows users to earn crypto assets as a reward for learning about various cryptocurrencies.
By watching a series of short educational videos about a project and completing any related short tasks, you can earn a predetermined amount of that project's tokens as a reward.
Each campaign only runs for a designated period of time, so you'll need to move quickly to ensure you're rewarded for your participation.
Previous projects have included heavyweights like TRON, NEAR Protocol, The Sandbox, Sushiswap, 1inch, The Graph and more!
The platform tracks jobs from dozens of both established and up-and-coming crypto firms and allows you to refine your search by keywords and location to find suitable opportunities — many of which pay in cryptocurrencies.
Consider creating one or more alerts to be automatically notified of new opportunities that meet your criteria direct to your inbox.
Users can also participate in several more advanced tasks to earn additional Diamonds, including referring friends to CoinMarketCap or accurately predicting the price of a cryptocurrency in the near future.
