What is my favorite platform to use for a free cryptocurrency research tool, including price charts, returns, ICO listings, exchanges, market overview, and even a really cool tags feature where you can sort cryptocurrencies based on certain features?

I’ve tried to use a bunch of different pricing chart tools over the years, including things built into exchanges. It has all been really frustrating because there is either too much data or there is a bunch of annoying banner ads, it doesn’t load right, or it doesn’t have enough of the data I want to make decisions.
Coinpaprika.com has an awesome combination of just the right amount of data presented really well, and without annoying banner ads as we can see here, and without too much data where I’m getting lost and I can’t find the things I want to.
I’m grateful I’ve produced this in collaboration with the Coinpaprika team as a partner for life at Jerrybanfield.com/partners.
If you would like me to make a video like this for what you are doing, will you please become a partner today because that’s how we collaborate and make something together like this?
What I love about Coinpaprika, my favorite feature is the ability to go and sort by tags. Especially as I’ve wanted to research cryptocurrencies over the years, maybe if I’d had Coinpaprika, I might have made some better decisions with my investments and trades.
The tags feature helps out a ton with this because when we are trying to buy these cryptocurrencies, we often struggle to figure out, “Okay, what is really important?”
Sometimes we find these little things that we decide, “All right. This is helpful.” For example, we might decide we like delegated Proof of Stake Blockchains. I remember at one point I was really high on masternodes, I wanted to invest in blockchains with masternodes.
What we can do on Coinpaprika, over on this far right side, you click on the tags, and then you can click a specific tag.
If you are really loving one particular feature, for example, I was all over the masternodes for a while, starting with Dash when Dash was like $11, you can then just sort and only look at currencies with masternodes.
For me, this is a really helpful feature as a starting point. If you want to buy coins with masternodes, you can sort this, and then you can see the price for all the coins, and you can see them all listed in one interface together with up-to-date data.
Now, I naturally recommend to research something as much as possible before you buy into it. The two mistakes I’ve made with cryptocurrencies that have got me real good is not looking in and finding the bad parts about a cryptocurrency before I get in and that can be done with thorough research.
This platform on coinpaprika.com gives you a very good jumping-off place and can help you see the things you want to know very quickly, to see which currencies are even worth learning a little bit more about. That way you can dive real deep into each specific currency.
I also love this “Community” tab on here, which is very easy to view. This way you can put on a tag like “Masternode,” and then select “Community.”
Then, you can look and start to see which communities, followings buy certain specific cryptocurrencies, what size they are, what’s going on with them.
For example, if you look at the “Masternodes” list, you can see the Twitter followers for each of these coins with their masternodes.
You might be able to pick some sleeper coins that have bigger communities than you would expect, or you might be able to spot some duds this way and say, “Wait a minute, this coin, how does it hardly has any followers? Why is the price so high? I might not want to have any of that.”
Some of these have GitHub links. There is also “Stars” on here, which I am not sure, but I think that’s Coinpaprika’s ranking term. You can also look and see how many contributors there are, to get an idea of what active involvement there is going on with the project.
You can take off a tag. You can also do things like “Favorites.”
Favorites are really cool because if you just care about certain currencies in your own portfolio, for example let’s say you have got Bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, Litecoin, Dash, Ethereum Classic, Binance Coin, hopefully you don’t have Zcash. Probably you don’t want to have Steem, either. Let’s say these are the ones you care about, and then you get this “Favorite” button, and now you can just see which ones you actually have.
This is a really sweet feature then because if you are trying to look at the price data every day, you might not care, rather let’s say if you don’t have a certain currency, like if you don’t have Ripple, you might not care that the Ripple price went down or up.
In fact, you might not even want to get distracted by the Ripple price and suddenly decide when it has gone up 50% that it is a good buy now, only for it to go back down a bunch, and you lose everything.
This can help you sort out on here exactly which ones you are actually holding. That way you can just take these all off too, or you can change your favorites up at any time, and you can also combine some of these together. You can even try to get an idea of what your portfolio looks like just by favorites.
Another tab that’s a lot of fun on this main interface is the “All Time High.” This will give you a look at where the price is today relative to the ATH, or All Time High process, price measured in USD.
Another thing that’s cool, if you are tired of looking at prices all the time, you can choose whether you want it in Bitcoin, you can put it in Ethereum even, or you can go USD.
It’s so easy to just switch these over. If you can look at all the prices, if you just have Ethereum, you want to know, “How much Ethereum do I need for Bitcoin Cash today?”
You can look at it all just like that and see the “All Time High” price that way, but this is measured in USD.
What’s cool with the “All Time High” price on this is you can compare very easily today’s price versus the “All Time High.”
This is nice, you can quickly look and see “% from All Time High,” and then “% to All Time High.”
These respectively give you what percent it is either down from “All Time High,” which more than likely it will be down, and then the percent to get back up to the “All Time High.”
With a good look back, Bitcoin right now is down 67% from the “All Time High,” whereas Ethereum is down 84.6% from the “All Time High.”
You can then look at which coins, you can use this to make some cool videos, to make top 10 videos if you wanted. You could say something like biggest losers ever, for example, and you could very easily just go through the “All Time High” percentage and you could find the one that’s down the most.
VeChain is the biggest “All Time High” loser on this out of the top 20 or so cryptocurrencies. It is down 99.87%. It was up to $9.55 down to one cent today. I have no idea how that happened. It is just easy to see, though, with this “All Time High” interface.
Then, you have also got the “% to All Time High” over here, so you can see what it would need to do to go back up to the “All Time High.”
For example, if you want to look at the Steem All Time High price, it was at $8.57, 266 days ago, I wish I had sold all of it then.
It would need to go up 751% to reach the “All Time High” price.
You can use this “All Time High” price then to get an idea of where you are at today compared to what’s possible in the future. You can also see how long ago it was. You will notice some of these obviously have All Time Highs in proximity to each other, but then others don’t.
It is very helpful for doing some research if you want to try to pick a winner.
I love the “Return rates” tab because one of the most annoying features on a lot of other cryptocurrency price charts is it only gives you a fixed number of days, like 24 hours or 7 days.
I love having an interface all in one that makes 7, 30 days, 3 months and a year, because these are common investing periods.
You are trading over a week or 30 days or three months, or the ideal, at least in the United States for capital gains, you want to buy something and hold it for a year.
That way you can see, “If I bought this last year, how much is it up over the period of a year?”
The year gives you a lot better indicator. You have got all these different indicators, so you can get a picture over time, from seven days, and then longer and longer, and all the way to a year.
When you combine all of these data tools together, then you have got a powerful position to start researching further. You can use the tags, return rates, all-time highs, look at the community, and can click on any of these. You don’t even have to have just technical tags, you can have functional tags.
For example, there is one that have gold backing on them. I don’t know anything about most of these, so I’m just browsing these, picking through these. You can go through and see if they have decentralized applications, if they take payments, whether there is a social network on it.
It is cool because, let’s say you want to invest in casino and gambling ones, you can very quickly look at the casino and gambling ones easily, and if you want to invest in that particular it is very easy to see that.
If you want to look at charity ones, you can see that very easily on here. Click over on tags, and then you can combine all these together and pick out ones that you think are awesome.
If you are interested in, let’s say, ICOs, then there is a nice ICO tab on here as well. You have got Active ICOs, Upcoming ICOs, and then Ended ICOs.
You can do the same thing with the tags with the ICOs. You can go through figure out, let’s say you want proof of stake ICOs that are upcoming, there is none upcoming or active, so you can click off that.
One thing I really am happy to see is the ERC20 tag on here. You can go through and hit ERC20, and you can see which ones of these are ERC20 tokens, which means they don’t actually have their own blockchain at the moment.
EOS, for example, started out as an ERC20 coin, and then moved over and now has its own blockchain. This allows you to see which ones of these coins’ value is essentially based totally in the Ethereum blockchain.
Therefore, if something happens to the Ethereum blockchain, it could have a huge impact on these coins, because these are all ERC20 tokens, which means they are a token on the Ethereum blockchain. They are not their own separate blockchain.
This is something good to know if you are buying into something, whether you are buying into a token that’s on the Ethereum blockchain, or if it is not on here, then it may actually be its own blockchain.
It could also be a token on a different blockchain, or it could be like, for example, the QRC20 tokens standard, this is for QTUM tokens.
You can use these other ones that you can tag some more of these.
Now, you go over here to ICOs. I have wanted to know how you could find ICOs before, and this is the cleanest interface I’ve found. It is cool because you can easily see the tags just on the default interface, you can see the number of days left to the received value, and then you can click on each individual page to get a lot more detail about it.
You have got a link right here to say, “Invest in this ICO.” I don’t know anything about it, I just clicked on it.
It has got the basics of the token distribution, you have got additional links like bounty program right here. You can also see the conditions. It says, “Whitelist,” and “Know Your Customer.”
That means you probably can’t just buy into that straightaway without having those conditions met.
You have got the “Exchanges” tab also, which you can display in USD, Bitcoin or Ethereum. You got the “Exchanges Volume” over here, “Volume change” and “All-time volume” right here.
Pretty standard stuff in a very nice interface.
Then at the bottom, if you are wondering, “Okay, well, how do I contact?”
There is a nice contact form. Then, if you want to add your new coin that’s not on here yet, you can click on “Add coin.”
For example, if Steem ever actually comes up with smart media tokens and they get to be available, you could just use this to get your coin added. There is also an API where you can put the API into your own interface or on your own website. You can pull all the data on to your own website.
In a future tutorial, I’m going to show how I put a WordPress plugin and I am able to then display live cryptocurrency prices on my own WordPress website. For today, this is already 15 minutes long in the video tutorial version on YouTube, so we will just stick with getting this done.
Another cool page is the “Market Overview” page where you can easily look at the entire market. The cool thing is the focus on the “All Time High,” you can see the current percent of the “All Time High” volume.
Therefore, today we are at collectively a 20% of the “All Time High” volume, which is pretty cool to know, and then you can see the historical “All Time High 24-hour” volume.
You have also got these Paprika top 10 for September. This is a list representing $1,000 invested on the first day of the month in the top 10 coins by market cap. You can see the exact share here.
That is a sample portfolio, and if you want some nice diversification and you are holding on an exchange or wallet with different currencies, you can basically compare how you do investing in the top 10 versus in Bitcoin only.
You have also got the top 99 altcoins over here where these are invested by market cap also, for example 29% in Ethereum, 13% in Ripple, and then on down with much smaller percentages in each one. A nice diversified portfolio approach, which was one of the original approaches I took.
You have got “Total Market Capitalization.”
This is a cool feature here where you can easily see the “Top 10 Gainers” and the
“Top 10 Losers.” Bitcoin interest down 34% today. You can also look at this in Bitcoin or USD.
You can do a “Top 200,” which is nice because sometimes you don’t want to see rank number 1,100 coin up 8,000% or whatever. Like this one 916 rank, it’s up 93%. You might not care whether something that far down is up that much, so it’s nice that it’s got a “Top 200” filter where you can focus on just the top 200 if you want to, or you can use all and get into all of them from there.
Interestingly, it looks like this is only available to hit right up here, but it does also work on the “Top 10 Losers” down here. “Top 10 Losers” today Empowr coin is down 43% for this video tutorial.
You have got down here then, the final thing we will take a look at.
“Percentage of Total Market Capitalization,” you can look at all these down here for the top 10 currencies and dominance.
You can put it on “Year to Date” or “Max” if you want to go way back. It’s cool, like on the max, you can follow where Bitcoin went down relative to Ethereum, where there got to be all this investment and excitement in Ethereum and the Bitcoin market price went down relative to that. You can also do 30 days or different days on it.
There is night mode on here, too, so if you prefer a dark theme like this, I’m loving it.
I’m very grateful for this now, I’m deleting CoinMarketCap for good and using this as my main cryptocurrency interface because all the stuff I’ve shown you, it’s a very effective and completely free research tool, not even any banner ads or anything on here.
This is brand new, it has been blowing up in the traffic data according to the Coinpaprika team. I’m grateful to have the chance via my partner program at Jerrybanfield.com/partners to bring this to you pretty shortly after it’s released, it’s still in beta right now.
I’m grateful the Coinpaprika team joined as a lifetime partner and helped me to make this video through becoming a lifetime partner.
I hope this has been helpful for you, to show you something that might be working a lot better than what you are using today. It has also got a responsive mobile website that is designed to work great on any mobile device.
If you have found anything in this video helpful, will you please smash that like button down because you will feel good helping give back a little something on this video helping it rank higher?
I know when I find a video helpful I always hit that like button. All right, not always, occasionally I forget because I’m busy or whatever, but most of the time I hit that like button and I feel good, like, “I just gave back to the creator of the video.”
If you would like to see more like this, will you please subscribe and/or read my blog because if you liked this, if you are one of the few people who watched all the way to the end, I’m guessing you will absolutely love what I will create for you in the future?
If you would like me to make a video just like this for you with a matching blog post on my website, will you please become a partner today at Jerrybanfield.com/partners because that’s how I tell who is serious and who is not?
I’ve got a partner program instead of sitting there trying to respond to a bunch of emails. You pay to join the partner program, I know you are serious. You don’t, then I know you are not. It makes life easier for both of us to not waste our time.
Thank you very much for being one of the only people probably, for every 100 people that watch, you are one of the top 1% that made it all the way to the end.
I love you, you are awesome.
Thank you for helping me do what I love every day, be here, give you the best that I know about, show up, honestly talk in a shed in my backyard and be there for my family.
I appreciate that, every day I’m thinking about you, I’m trying to make things you will find helpful, and I hope this is one of those things for you.
