Learn About: CoinCap’s New Features

If you consider yourself a seasoned crypto trader or crypto enthusiast, you might be curious about how you can add the new CoinCap to your crypto toolbox.

That’s why last week, we hosted a Facebook Live event for anyone to learn, connect, and celebrate the new CoinCap.

At its core, CoinCap is an easy way for the many groups that make up the crypto ecosystem to understand real-time market activity. Even beginners will find itto be a powerful and interactive tool to better understand the ins-and-outs of cryptocurrency.

So that you can get up-to-speed, this post highlights 3 Key Takeaways from the Live Demo.

Read ahead, or watch thefull recording below:

1. Real-Time Pricing That’s Reliable

If you’re as compulsive about checking market data as we are, CoinCap has you covered! Because it offers real-time pricing and market data collected and aggregated from 69 different global exchanges, you can have complete reassurance that you’re always seeing accurate data and the most up-to-date market activity.

Head on over to CoinCap and click on ‘Exchanges’ on the navigation bar to see which exchanges are trading at the lowest (or highest) price. With exchanges, you can sort the data by rank, allowing you to make a better-informed decision on where to purchase (or sell) your bitcoin in real-time.

2. A New Way to Visualize Data – All in One Place

You’ll love exploring TradingView charts and the many interactive tools that come with it. Not only is this where you can visualize market activity to gain new insights, but it’s a highly-participatory learning environment that you can access from any desktop.

Most of you will find TradingView extremely helpful for viewing and sharing trading ideas, but we won’t lie — just “charting around” is fun and useful for visualizing market data in new ways.

Here you can see the bullish pattern of the Falling Wedge. It begins wide at the top and contracts as prices move lower. The falling wedge is designed to spot a decrease in downside momentum and alert technicians to a potential trend reversal.

3. Get the Data to Make Well-Informed Buying & Selling Decisions

We talk about liquidity in the demo, or the ability to buy or sell a digital asset freely without worrying about affecting the global price.

For example, when a digital asset has a low 24-hour volume, selling may move the price down (versus high liquidity, when you can freely buy or sell without fear of moving the price). So when you sort the data by Volume (24hr), you’re more equipped with the knowledge you need when deciding exactly when to buy or sell.

In this final example, Bitcoin shows a 24-hour volume of $2.3 billion. This means it’s being heavily traded, and your buying and selling of a Bitcoin won’t move the price. At the same time, BrahmaOS shows a $0.01446138 24-hour volume, so buying this token would cause the price to rise because there is so little trading activity.
