When I want to find sites that list cryptocurrencies value I can type in any number of search phrases and get a variety of results.
How much is Bitcoin worth in USD? Did it go up from where it was yesterday? Is it still worth more than Ethereum? Can I get notifications if my investment moves significantly?
Are you waiting for Litecoin to value up to $70 per coin so you can sell? Are you wondering if Bitcoin is trending up or down? Do you want notifications?
There are numerous websites and exchange platforms that keep up-to-date values of cryptocurrencies that you can watch in real-time. Here are my five favorites. You’ll surely find them useful!
Coinbase (Honorable mention)
Coinbase isn’t a top-five because it doesn’t follow values in real-time. The Price tab will show you the values a lot of currencies, but the lowest amount of time you can get it to update these prices is every one hour.
If you want to see the graph for a particular coin, just click on it. Again, the graph will update every hour on the minimum. The cool thing is you can select its movement from the last hour or even the entire lifetime of the coin.
It will also show you the market cap, current circulating supply, and the all-time high price for the coin.
If you want to know what’s been going on with that particular coin, there is a list of recent articles below the graph.
The page will also show a list of popular coins and whether they tend to move concurrently or against that coin’s value.
CryptoWatch calls itself the top crypto trading terminal. Clicking the Open Terminal button will take you to a live-update page with custom charts, comparisons, supported exchanges, markets, APIs, correlations, and pricing.
Connect via Kraken to start trading. Make yourself an account and look like a real-time pro.
Besides the coin list on the home page, you can also view the currencies as cards. I find this view to be fascinating. Maybe because I’m not used to it, but looks really cool.
Clicking on a coin brings up a paragraph about the coin, a chart with different viewing options and some social media comments. There’s also a list of exchanges and quotes. I don’t find the information as detailed as it is on other websites.
The first time I reached Prices.org I thought something was wrong. Then I realized the flashing colors were supposed to be there. The various currencies in the list will occasionally flash either pink, purple, or green. The colors are soft and once you get used to them, they aren’t disturbing to your eyes.
Clicking on a particular coin will bring you to a page with a price chart that you can set for one day, one month, or one year. A secondary chart can be set for a variety of views comparing your chosen coin to a different one.
See the latest posts about the coin in Reddit and News. See a list of exchanges that hold your chosen coin and the bright red and green highlights that change as each exchange flashes by letting you know whether people are selling or buying.
Perhaps it is because I use a Chromebook, but I had a lot of trouble scrolling on the details page, which took the fun out of the endeavor.
If you want to buy Bitcoin it will refer you to three different exchange platforms: Binance, Coinbase, and Kucoin.
You can sign up for a crypto predictions newsletter. I just did, so I can’t tell you how accurate it is. Please remember no one can accurately predict the upcoming values of any particular currency.
There is a fascinating ICO (Initial Coin Offering) calendar that lists active, past, and upcoming ICOs. It also lets you know the country in which the new coin is being developed.
Like Prices.org, LiveCryptoChart has flashing color codes on their cryptocurrencies list. The flashes aren’t as frequent and distracting, though, so it’s easier on my brain. Frankly, I can do without the color codes, but some will find it easier to follow trends that way.
You can see a list of the top trading pairs and a list of top crypto articles to stay on top of recent happenings.
Some of the tabs at the top of the page don’t work at this time; I’m not sure if that’s because I’m in guest mode or if they just aren’t ready yet. The exchange tab leads to nothing.
The News tab brings up a page full of articles and even has links to other news pages, in case there’s not enough for you to digest in their offering.
Look at the cryptocurrency list in a variety of ways. The biggest losers option is a fun one, as long as you don’t see your investment on there.
Right now ZeusCrowdfunding is the biggest loser with a value of $0.00000. That’s worse than the average ICO. My weakest investment is a gift of KICK I received a while back. It’s not on the loser list, which is shocking, but satisfying.
Speaking of ICOs, the site lists those, as well. The list isn’t as comprehensive or fun as the one on Prices.org.
Clicking on a coin’s name brings up a page with an impressive amount of information on that currency. Stats and charts are givens.
Also, read the latest Tweets and Reddit comments. Read a description of the coin, its technology, and its features.
Shows a list of cryptocurrencies in order of popularity. Values are updated live, and each currency has a mini-graph of the current price.
On the Currencies tab, you can select a number of different ways to display the list. There is also a tab dedicated to your Watch list if you make one.
Clicking on a particular currency shows you a paragraph about the currency, a chart, and gives a number of other options to view, including the options to show market pairs, social media, market pairs, and historical data.
There is an Exchanges tab that gives you three different ways to display that list. For each exchange, you are shown the liquidity, the volume from the last 24 hours, the number of markets, and when the exchange was first launched.
Clicking on a particular exchange platform’s name will bring up a few paragraphs about the exchange plus a list of all the coins it supports. This is extremely important information when choosing an exchange, as you want to make sure you choose one that supports the coins in which you want to invest.
CoinMarketCap is one of the most popular crypto sites for good reasons. It has the Cattington Seal of Approval!
Live Coin Watch (1)
This website follows the changes and updates in coin values as they happen. As somebody who strives to buy on a bear market and hold until I see a significant profit opportunity, I like knowing what’s going on immediately.
Getting 24-hour updates from Coinbase is nice, but before I make a monumental trade (for me) I want to make sure the trend hasn’t suddenly buckled before I tap the Trade button.
Clicking on a coin brings you to a page with detailed information. You have a zoomable price chart that shows you where it’s been from 24 hours to the dawn of the coin’s existence.
There is also a depth chart that shows bids vs. asks. I really don’t quite grasp this chart yet, even though I know what bids and asks are.
There are hundreds of mini-depth charts comparing your coin to various fiat currencies of the world.
There is a box view of exchange platforms that deal with your selected currency. Hovering the cursor over an exchange shows the liquidity of the particular coin on that exchange.
Choose to view lists of biggest winners (bulls) vs. biggest losers (bears). See a list of exchanges and what is going on with each of them. Click the News tab to go to a page of articles on all things crypto.
Look at a vast store of little reviews of things in the crypto world. Customize how you view your lists and check on the little hearts to focus on your favorite coins.
Live Coin Watch gets the Cattington Seal Of Approval.
