About us

CryptoCompare is an interactive platform where you can discuss the latest Crypto trends and monitor all markets streaming in real time
Just a standard day at the office. Vlad was working on ordebooks and Quynh on adding exchanges.

How it all started

CryptoCompare was founded at the start of 2014 when we started developing a basic proof of concept crypto comparison website (under the url www.cryptocoincomparison.com). We got funded in November 2014 and both Charlie Hayter and Vlad Cealicu left their jobs to work full time on building CryptoCompare. With an initial May deadline to go live, the website was finally released to the public in late July 2015. The Company is based in London, UK and part of the core team is working from the London office but we have employees in Romania, Portugal, Germany, and Hungary.

At CryptoCompare we pride ourselves in showing the most accurate live prices, charting and market analysis from 65 of the top crypto exchanges globally. Our content editors keep the mining data, be it company, mining equipment or mining contracts up to date with the latest pricing and products available on the market. Our wallets section has a comprehensive list of wallets that will help you find the best wallet for your needs. We have over 5000 trading pairs and over 1000 crypto currencies or crypto assets in an easy to understand and intuitive format. 


Charlie planning the future, probably thinking about press quotes.

The Future

The Company has five main pillars of wisdom for our build - Data Integrity, Ease of Use, Scope of Data, Social Interactivity & Design  - which we believe are key to providing a useful and compelling service. And best of all, everything is free of charge.

Our streaming prices update a number of other metrics in real time, so users can stay abreast of the latest price movements. Our analysis shows users where Bitcoin is being traded and for which fiat countries and at what volumes - again on a real-time basis - you can switch easily between local currencies to get your own personal view of the markets you want to look at. Our goal is to give you the the whole market from all the markets.

We believe it is important to bring rigor and easily accessible information for new users looking to use blockchain technology. As such we provide guides of varying depth, from an in depth look at the maths of elliptic curve cryptography to how hashing actually work or to a simple look at what is money. Our forums users can interact with each other discuss the market and give their experiences on third party products or services in the space. For example we give users the chance to review wallets, exchanges or mining solutions for the benefit of other users.
