CoinMarketCap, Can You Trust It? Interview w/CoinGecko

in #steemit11 months ago (edited)

We are excited to bring to you an interview with the COO of CoinGecko, Bobby Ong. CoinGecko is doing more than any other crypto aggregator to present trustworthy information about your favorite cryptocurrencies. In this episode of The Steemit Podcast, Bobby explains how exactly they're doing that through recently announced products like TrustScore 2.0 and more.


@coingecko and and crossover w00t w00t!

If you're in the cryptospace and consider yourself serious, you should know that market cap means little to nothing anymore. CoinGecko's Trust Score algoritm will be the first of its kind as the market becomes smarter and realise there is more to a coin that just trading volume and price per coin.

Thanks boss for the shoutout about myself and @superoo7 going to Steemfest 😆. For those going, see you guys there!

I’m looking forward to hearing more about the trust score algo! As this space evolves we definitely should have better controls over how we appraise coins and tokens, good job 👍🏼

We're working hard to develop the next iteration of Trust Score as we speak! If you want to know more about how Trust Score 2.0 works, feel free to check our post out.

Coingecko is a very solid platform. A lot of respect from me for what they are doing because coinmarketcap is surely not making it easy for new investors to not get burned.

@coingecko is a 50% beneficiary on this post.

There is no beneficiary set on the blockchain. Maybe you plan to send the rewards manually? If so, please post proof of transfer after the payout.

Also, I've been a fan of coingecko for years. Great site/service.

We're genuinely surprised that they are sharing a beneficiary (there was no discussion on that during the call, it was entirely's goodwill).

They have promised to send the beneficiary reward by the time the post payouts.

Glad to know that you've been a CoinGecko fan for years! Hit us up if you have any feedback or features you wish we have.

Coingecko has easy access links to the biggest movers, highest volumes as well as newest coins. I use the site for confirmation of money moving into Alts or if it’s moving into Bitcoin.

It’s a neat app/ website. Check it out if you haven’t already 👍🏻💯

Going to check coingecko out, till now I mostly used coinmarketcap

Let us know what you think of it!

Excited to see Bobby Ong being interviewed by's own @andrarchy! Looking forward for us to do more stuff together in the future.

Awesome possom post! We are old school fans of CoinGecko. We resteemed your post. Follow us and get a better chance if being resteemed again!

coingecko is the best crypto aggregator. They are really engaging in what they do and going deep in blockchain ecosystem. I support their steem witness.

It would be good if you could at least cross upload your videos to a Steem friendly site like @threespeak in addition to YouTube. Many of us try to avoid delivering eyeballs and revenue to Google these days.

We mainly use @dtube as the steem video platform as of now. Will check out @threespeak and get some content there!

Thank you... have a random picture of the little chap who lives on my balcony and crawls around on our wall.


Someone forgot to set beneficiaries:


Oh no! You're right, thanks for pointing this out. Still getting used to the feature, lol. We'll settle up with them after the payout. Thanks again!

Do you work for a certain company with the initials MD or dL by any chance? 😂

Yes I noticed that too lol


Data aggregator is going to be a new buzz word in this space as having a platform with access to so much data on crypto and comparing it in a useful way is going to set these guys apart.

I already use more so than coin market cap a lot of times, so I think CoinGecko is going in the right direction here. Love this guys enthusiasm and recognition of what limits coin market caps limitations 👍🏼

if the whole world runs on getting shares of inflation and the mighty dollar thinks it can, but it can't and everyone keeps ignoring that, than it's only normal for daddy-money school boys to think that's just how it works, ignoring basic math and rules of nature ...

the original concept of bitcoin / cryptoken on an immutable ledger ... was 21 million CAP and STOP ...

so ...

all the crypto-anarchists and cypherpunks have gone back or staid in the shadows and Crypton has been taken over by marketeers and wanna-wall-street-whale-street whales who think you can smile at a moving train and make it go away. Well, they will tell you that as they grab that backpack full of money and get ready to jump while you stand staring ... smoke and mirrors

affiliate marketing links were downvoted until a year ago, now its featured by the-company-who-doesnt-own-the-blockchain-that-belongs-to-everyone ...

... you DO KNOW this is public , right, all of it, everyone across the planet can read it, you should be careful with the fairy tales ...

the coingecko is pretty solid and the api is pretty useful but i always wondered what they brought to the platform and the value of the STEEM/SBD coin ...

because its just more marketing and selling a brand at the cost of, ....

i'll gladly stand corrected when the price hits $1 by december as the masses come in to play facebook(but good content!) on a paywall for the middle-classes (who for some reason are believed to be all idiots who suck up fairy tales for breakfast)

until then .....

i'll stand un-corrected ... what a load of shit (but i'll vote on the post b/c it gets me more curation rewards, which makes it 'good' content for someone who has nothing but lost money by buying steem so far )

enjoy the ride ... i saw the whales have had their post rewards halved on tuesday

Really? Post rewards halved? Was that steemit policy change or just the price dip?

quick on the draw :p

what do you think ? i dont think its karma, its a clear global ripple
but in effect thats about the effect of it

and never mind thats just me, i tell myself im gonna distance from the circus then i create an account with 60sp and do nothing but talk ... it really doesnt matter much to guttertrash like me if the price is five or sixteen cents ... it would if the price were 2 or 7 dollar ... at any rate, im gonna stick around because the whole technical side of this thing is too cool to play with

(i usually lag behind two weeks on replies ... just caught my eye ...)

Coingecko is a very solid and very powerful platform. Many greetings and compliments from me for what they are doing, because Coin MarketCap is certainly not gonna be easy for new investors to ignite

Did you literally copypasted @acidyo's comment and switched some synonym? lol

Anyways, thanks for commenting. Hope you enjoyed the interview.

Coingecko is a very knowledgeable and fruitful platform. My deepest recognition for what they are doing because Coin Market Crap is clearly not going to make it simple enough for new gamblers to get rich and quick

Lol well re said

Brother, I didn't understand everything here, new ,,,,,,,,,, Now, slowly, I understand everything ,,,,,, brother, if you give me some advice, I would be very happy

great job and much needed in the space to have right, correct statistics.

I dont really trust it as I have been seeing a lot of backlash from users, im currently eyeing coinspace which would be a better alternative for cryptocurrency data.. I hope it would be out on beta this year!

So much good info on this post, many that probably wouldn't even know ever, lately i have noticed that is harder to find good info about crypto, mostly know is only shills and FUD.

awesome post content really healpful and put me into a perspective

Perfect,I will look forward to trying it out.

coingecko is the best platform

Thanks for this post.

@Coingecko has a more complex shell. But at the same time he has more useful information, and I will also advise other coingecko. Thanks for the information, I will probably use it now.

Everyone knows you cant trust it, but people still seem to have it saved in their favourites!

Coingecko has easy access links to the biggest movers, highest volumes as well as newest coins.
