With all that happened in 2021, CoinMarketCap wanted to share what new things we have brought to our users.
The end of the year was a whirlwind in the crypto space — Bitcoin was up, Bitcoin was down, and suddenly, it’s already 2022!
We at CoinMarketCap had a lot going on in the background — and in the foreground! — the last few months of 2021, and we’d like to share with you what updates you might not even know about.
To begin, let’s take a look at our website!
CoinMarketCap — Our Loyal Users, Redefined in Diamonds
One of the biggest changes to CoinMarketCap in 2021 was the introduction of our Diamonds rewards program — now, loyal CoinMarketCap users can earn Diamonds by interacting with our site and its products. So what can they do with those Diamonds? Buy things!
CoinMarketCap on Mobile
You asked, we listened!
We updated our iOS widgets to allow users to add them to their home screen. The app currently supports three widget types in a variety of size options.
Ticker: Track Bitcoin price and market data. You can customize the widget to track any coin or token.
Top Coins: Displays the top coins by market capitalization.
Watchlist: Quickly check the prices of your favorite coins on your phone's home screen using our watchlist widget.
Customize your widgets so you are always on top of the latest market moves.
As we wrote above, loyal CoinMarketCap customers can earn Diamonds by referring their friends — our referral program is right on our app as well. Just make sure you are logged in and have a balance of at least 200 Diamonds to begin referring!
New Language Support
To further our mission of showcasing the crypto revolution to the world, we translated our apps into two new languages!
Use Our API to Grow Your Crypto Knowledge
As part of our aim of bringing crypto literacy to as many people as possible all around the world, we’ve decided to start offering our (normally paid) API to projects and companies that share a similar goal with us — making crypto accessible.
CoinMarketCap Goes YouTube Viral
CoinMarketCap’s Very Own Library of Alexandria
CoinMarketCap Alexandria is now over one year old! And a lot has happened — especially in the last quarter of 2021. We launched in September 2020 with just over 30,000 readers a week, and we ended December 2021 with over 1 million readers a week.
As for site updates — we got a new face! You can now search for articles by a variety of topics, including metaverse, DeFi, trading and more.
We also continued putting out our weekly news roundup podcast — CoinMarketRecap.
