  3. How do you stand out from other coin listing websites?

    First of all, we do not request any kind of payment for services. As a coinpaprika, we try to be always objective and do not suggest investments in any project. Thanks to the extensive development facilities, we are able to always provide accurate data directly from the cryptocurrency markets. Another feature that distinguishes our platform is speed, we respond to requests for the addition of a new cryptocurrency or stock market several times faster than the competition.

  4. What is Market Cap, how do you calculate it?

    Market Cap, or Market Capitalization, is a metric often used in the context of cryptocurrencies, it tells us what is the "cumulative value" of a cryptocurrency at any given time. We calculate it on the basis of the formula:

    [The amount of a given cryptocurrency in circulation] x [the price of the cryptocurrency].

    This value allows us to determine the rank of a given coin compared to other projects because it takes into account the current demand and supply. However, You should not be suggested only by this metric, because in some cases it may turn out to be unreliable, so it is worth looking at other values such as 24 hours volume, Code Progress, or community involvement around a project.

  5. Where is your data from?

    Coinpaprika collects and calculates prices completely independently from the competitors. Our system collects data directly from markets where cryptocurrencies are traded. Data about FIAT conversions are taken from openexchangerates.org. We are currently serving over 300 Cryptocurrency Exchanges, where we collect data from over 25 000 cryptocurrency pairs.

  6. Why is the price of a given cryptocurrency different from that on Coinmarketcap?

    Coinpaprika collects data regardless of its competitors (Check #5). Differences in prices do not result from an error, but from the way, platforms collect data from the markets. The average price is calculated by taking into account the price on every supported exchange, and including the turnover on each pair. Detailed information on which markets are taken into account when calculating the price can be found in the Exchanges / Markets tab on the subpage of each cryptocurrency. The fully described methodology has been written down here. We have also prepared a document that informs our users about the differences in the presented price between us and our competitors - https://coinpaprika.com/metrics

  12. Token / Coin what is the difference?
    • Coin - this is a cryptocurrency that has its own blockchain and works independently from other cryptocurrencies. Examples of Coins: Bitcoin, Stellar, Litecoin
    • Token - it is a cryptocurrency, which based its activities on the blockchain of other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum Blockchain or EOS Blockchain. Examples of Tokens: Chainlink, OmiseGo, 0x
  13. Why is the "Org. Structure" marked as centralized if the cryptocurrency is decentralized? What does this metric mean?

    The organization's structure means the form in which a given cryptocurrency is developed, who is mainly responsible for its development. If the organization of a company structure is behind the advancement of a given cryptocurrency, then we mean "Org. Structure" as Centralized. If the organization is responsible for the development of cryptocurrency, but a very large contribution to technical development belongs to external users, then we designate such a structure as Semi-centralized. As Decentralized, we designate projects that developers are not connected to in any formal way.

  14. Is coinpaprika a finite project? What are the plans for development?

  15. "Why is this coin on your site? It's a Scam!"

    The goal of coinpaprika is to inform about all available cryptocurrencies, not to evaluate them. The condition for being listed on the platform is to provide transparent data in block explorers. If the cryptocurrency meets all the requirements, that are detailed during the submission process, it is going to be listed on our platform. However, if there is important information about which we believe users should know, we put appropriate warnings and mandatory links to pages from which the information has been released.

  16. Why don’t you add my coin/token?

    Although we want the largest possible number of currencies to be available in our database, this is not entirely possible. There are few factors that we take into consideration before adding cryptocurrency, for example, the correctness and transparency of the provided data, the size of the community, the availability of purchase (including the fact that the exchange on which you can buy that cryptocurrency is already listed) and the activity of the development team. The final decision to add or reject a form is taken by taking into account all the above-mentioned factors. We reserve the right to refuse the application for the addition of a given cryptocurrency if there are clear indications.

  17. "Why exchange [XYZ] is on coinpaprika? It's clearly a scam!"

    The goal of coinpaprika is to inform about all available exchanges, not to evaluate them. The condition for being listed on the platform is to provide transparent data from API endpoints of all available markets. If the exchange meets all technical requirements, that are detailed during the submission process, it is going to be listed on our platform. However, if there is important information about which we believe users should know, we put appropriate warnings and mandatory links to pages from which the information has been released.

  18. What is the "Confidence score" and how to interpret it?

    Due to rampant malicious practices in the crypto exchanges environment, we have introduced in 2019 and 2020 new ways of evaluating exchanges and one of them is - Confidence score. Because it's a new metric - it's essential to know how it works.

    Confidence score is weighted based on 3 principles:

    • based on the liquidity from order books (75%) - including overall liquidity and market depth/volume ratio, volumes are included also, if exchange is low volume (below 2M USD volume 24h)
    • based on web traffic (20%)
    • based on regulation (5%)

    Confidence score is mainly based on liquidity, because it's the most important aspect of cryptocurrency exchanges. Without liquidity there is no trading, illiquid markets tend to collapse in the long term. Besides liquidity - there is also an additional factor in calculation of score - market depth/volume ratio. If volume is big (especially when growing much faster than liquidity), and market depth seems to not keep pace with - it's reducing overall score. Exchanges that keep market makers liquidity with expanding volume are those that keep all ratios in-tact and have overall score above 75-80% (it means that they have all liquidity ratios above minimum requirements, high web traffic participation, and are often regulated).

  19. What are “liquidity dots” and what do they represent?

    Due to rampant malicious practices in the crypto exchanges environment, we have introduced in 2019 and 2020 new ways of evaluating markets and exchanges and one of them is - Liquidity dots. Because it’s a new metric - it's essential to know how it works.

    Liquidity dots are a 3-way metric system - with three different colors representing different market depth/volume ratio and liquidity.

    • Green - represents that market passes liquidity ratios and should represent good liquidity to given volume
    • Yellow - represents that market didn’t pass one of the liquidity ratios, but pass others, and thus it represents average liquidity to given volume
    • Red - represents that market didn’t pass any liquidity ratios, and thus is having either - bad liquidity or it’s heavily wash-traded (where liquidity can be relatively good, but compared to its reported volume it’s not passing required ratios)
