  • The average price change of the category in the last 24 hours.
  • The top-performing cryptocurrency in this category.
  • The market cap and trading volume of the category.
  • The number of cryptocurrencies in profit and loss over the last 24 hours.

If you click on a specific category, you can dive deeper into the individual cryptocurrencies:

Coin categories are not created equal. The hottest and most relevant ones are listed at the top of the list:
