 Better metrics than coinmarketcap.com

Better metrics than coinmarketcap.com

Week of March 19th 2018 - OnChainFX

On Chain FX is a cryptoasset rankings and metrics site that is similar to Coinmarketcap.com. Although coinmarketcap has more coins listed, the value in On Chain FX is in its diverse number of metrics and its easy to use toggling features that let you display data how you want to see it. They are taking more of a holistic ecosystem approach, giving insight into more than just market cap and price. Just this week, they added new components that track code commits from developers, which can often say a TON about the progress of the development team. As the adage goes,"quiet on git, did the team quit?" Anyways.... Here are a few cool features we love:

  • Y2050 Market Cap - this is what the market cap of the asset would be based on the total supply of that asset in the year 2050. This is useful because several coins have only a partial supply released, and this helps you get a more apples to apples look across platforms to view a full picture of supply
  • BTC Normalized Y2050 Supply - a cryptoasset's Y2050 marketcap divided by bitcoin's Y2050 supply; thus normalizing supply and backing out price assuming marketcap stays the same
  • On-Chain Data - although its easy to get caught up in looking at just price, another key component to an assets value is actual usage and volume; there are several cool data points around usage for each asset

 Round up your change and invest in cryptos

Round up your change and invest in cryptos

Week of March 12th 2018 - Coinflash

This week's featured product is Coinflash. Coinflash rounds up your change to the nearest dollar from your credit and debit card purchases and invests it automatically into the cryptocurrency of your choice. It does this by first counting up your spare change from the previous week or month. It then uses your Coinbase account to make a purchase for that amount. It is similar to some traditional financial "rounding-up" apps that you may have heard of before such as Acorns.

 Cryptocurrency tax platform

Cryptocurrency tax platform

Week of February 26th 2018 - TokenTax

The team at TokenTax has released a software that solves one of the hardest problems in crypto: taxes. Whether you are interested in just viewing your gains and losses in real time against your purchasing cost basis, or if you want fully completed 1099's to submit with your taxes, go check out this product - we're huge fans. *Note that this service is only available in the US at this time.

Although services like TokenTax are great, we strongly encourage you to be smart about your crypto trades, and only make trades if you really understand what you're doing. As of today, US legislation says that every time you spend or trade a cryptocurrency it is considered a taxable event. If you understand when and how you will be taxed, it makes the use of cryptocurrency a lot more real and a lot less stressful. Also keep in mind that as adoption increases, the government isn't going to let the gains from this magic internet money go unnoticed. Don't try and fly under the radar, do your research and claim your gains (or losses...).
