With hundreds of cryptocurrencies already out in the market and dozens more created each month, we at CoinGecko feel that it is really difficult to decide which altcoin to hold and invest in.
We feel that there is no proper quantitative way in trying to measure the worth of a coin. Current approaches to doing altcoin valuation mostly revolves around using market capitalization, a metric that is very easily manipulated by pre-mined coins.
CoinGecko aims to collect all the data required to quantitatively and qualitatively rank the potential of an altcoin. We plan to benchmark the coins based on our algorithm to determine how valuable a coin is compared to its peers.
We have collaborated with the following universities in producing cryptocurrency research.
Our work has been published in the following books.
We have been supported by the Malaysian government agency, MaGIC and were sent to Stanford University for a 2 weeks programme to learn from the best companies in Silicon Valley.
We have spoken at conferences worldwide. Here is a video of TM Lee speaking at the Midwestern Bitcoin Conference 2014.
And finally, here are some of the top media sites that have covered us since our launch.
