EDWARDS, Colo., Oct. 24, 2022 (Newswire.com) –
HackerNoon, a website focused on posting stories about Technology, launched new coin pages to track popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Coin data is constantly updated, tracking changes in each currency over a 24-hour period.
“As the crypto space evolves, so does HackerNoon,” wrote CEO David Smooke in a post announcing these new pages. “Our next step is to provide our readers and editors with better data within our technology publishing platform.”
By default, the list of coin pages is ordered by market capitalization. “Too much of the crypto and mainstream media is talking about Bitcoin break $10,000, $20,000, $50,000,” David wrote, “but really what they should be talking about is market cap. This simple but important distinction is missed by most mainstream media.” Top ranked coins currently include Bitcoin, Ethereumand XRP. Viewers can also sort this list by price and price change, as well as alphabetically.
Prices are tracked in conjunction with CoinMarketCap. Combining their information with HackerNoon’s own engineering, each page contains a chart that tracks changes in a currency’s price over time. These pages also provide information on the trading volume and circulating supply of each currency, giving readers the ability to see how each coin’s popularity has changed over time.
Coin pages will also help spread stories written by HackerNoon contributors. Each currency in the list of pages is associated with the last article that includes that currency as a subject. When viewing a page, it is 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 up with hot topics related to various cryptocurrencies.
In the future, HackerNoon hopes to add detailed descriptions to each currency on the list, providing information on each coin’s history and milestones. Almost every page contains a short description; the most popular coins have entire paragraphs detailing their reviews and claims to fame.
“We are focused on integrating more API-driven data sources on companies, cryptocurrencies, Software and people,” David wrote. “These coin price pages will be a quantitative and qualitative destination to learn more about what is happening with all the major cryptocurrencies.”
