1. Overview pages. Navigate the crypto space easier, with CoinCheckup


One year ago, the CoinCheckup team set off with a big mission: to make cryptocurrency more transparent and crypto research easy. We are amazed at the great response from our community.

We continue to work very hard, implementing requests based on your feedback and ideas, in order to make this platform a one-stop shop for cryptocurrency enthusiasts and traders.

We know it can sometimes be hard to start using a new platform, especially one with so many features and we’re here to guide you through this process.

We’ll start with our main pages for tracking crypto’s information to set the stage and show you what information you will be able to find here.

 

1.1 The homepage (Market Overview) and customization options

You will be able to see the most important pricing information as soon as you enter CoinCheckup.

If you want more detailed information, you can setup the homepage columns to display the information you want, by clicking CUSTOMIZE TABLE and selecting the information you would like displayed.

Keep in mind that you can also switch the columns order (by dragging them), to have them arranged however you see fit and your settings will be saved and displayed automatically once you are logged in.

1.2. The FILTER COINS button

Navigating through over 1,500 coins can be horrific. That’s why you can use the FILTER COINS button to filter out any of the coins you are not interested in and find the ones that could be potential candidates for investing in a very short time.

You can filter them by 3 main filter categories (Coin Fundamentals, CoinCheckup Score and Market & Trading information), each one with a lot of options to pick from the dropdown.

1.3. The Global Market Chart

See the Global Cryptocurrency Market Cap and Volume in this chart and see how the crypto market evolved.

4. See the Top Gainers, Top Losers and Recently Added cryptocurrencies

You can easily see which are the latest cryptocurrencies that have been recently added to our index and see all the information we have about them. If you would like to research a specific new cryptocurrency you can contact support@coincheckup.com

The Top Gainers and Top Losers pages will help you see which are the coins that took the biggest win or loss over the last 24 hours.

Let’s just say that if you own one of those in the first category, you might be in for a treat!  🙂

1.5 Investment Analysis page

1.6. Fundamental Analysis page

We’ll talk more about CoinCheckup’s Algorithm rating system later on, but you can already take a sneak preview at fundamentals page over here.

On the fundamentals page, you’ll find our ratings sorted per: Team, Product, Communication channels, etc.

1.7. GitHub Analysis page

Many experts believe that software projects such as open sources blockchain projects should see constant development in order to succeed. This can also be one of the criteria you should use when deciding whether to invest in a coin or not.

You can use the Github view to see the GitHub commits activity and community sizes of cryptocurrencies.

1.8. Pump & Dump tool

This is one of our latest additions to the CoinCheckup Portfolio.

On the Pump & Dump page, you’ll find all cryptocurrencies which suddenly show a spike of 5% or more within 5 minutes. This “could” mean that more buyers will see an opportunity to buy and grow the price of a cryptocurrency further.

However, where there are buyers there are sellers, usually, the people that cause the pump (meaning a sudden spike in price) are determined to sell their crypto at a profit.

After a price goes higher (price pump) within a short time frame the price could go lower within a short time frame as well (price dump).

Depending on your risk appetite you can “hold your cryptocurrencies” during a pump and possibly make a higher profit or sell them quickly to make a (smaller) profit with less risk.

 

1.9. Crypto Arbitrage Opportunities

Arbitrage is taking advantage of a price difference for cryptocurrencies between different exchanges and markets. On this page you’ll find all the latest opportunities for arbitrage trades across multiple crypto exchanges.

 

2: Advanced detail pages. Transparent cryptocurrency insights with CoinCheckup

3: The CoinCheckup Algorithm Score

 

By this time, you probably researched a few cryptocurrencies using CoinCheckup. You might wonder how the Algo. Score is calculated.

Before we built CoinCheckup we used an excel sheet an advanced research process and an excel formula to rate cryptocurrencies. CoinCheckup.com was practically born out of this excel sheet 🙂

We converted the excel formula to an algorithm that takes into consideration all the information we collect about a certain coin and that you can find inside its’ detail page and adds a score to it.

We are updating an researching the information on the coin’s websites and once we find anything new, we’ll directly add it to the detail page and the algorithm score will be updated automatically.

Over time we updated and tweaked our Algorithm formula. You’ll find the detailed formula here. It’s open source, so you’re free to suggest us changes and updates.

Note: that there’s an edit button on the detail page where you can submit updates for your favorite crypto.

On our Fundamentals overview page, you can find all the different algorithm scores and you can sort and filter them. Most people use this page to get quick insights to coins with the best team, product, communication, etc.

Also, note that the algorithm score (and other data on our site) should not be considered investment advice. Make sure you read our disclaimer carefully.
