About us

CryptoCompare is an interactive platform where you can discuss the latest Crypto trends and monitor all markets streaming in real time
Charlie doesnt' like being disturbed when he's doing his very special analysis of the crypto market

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 has three full time members of staff.

At CryptoCompare we pride ourselves in showing the most accurate live prices, charting and market analysis from 37 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 2400 trading pairs and over 600 crypto currencies or crypto assets in an easy to understand and intuitive format. 

 

Vlad & Charlie planing the future

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.

Meet Our Team

CryptoCompare team is growing every day. Here we are:

Charles Hayter

CEO
Charles has worked in finance as an equity analyst covering a variety of sectors from solar energy through to shale gas. He has passed the CFA qualification and has also consulted on a variety of media campaigns. His greatest passion is Africa and pestering Vlad & Paul for more features.

Vlad Cealicu

CTO
Vlad is a coding genius - born with keyboard & mouse surgically attached to his hands - he has been coding since day one - and possibly before that. Vlad has worked as Web Developer for ADVFN and as Head of Software Development for LSBF. Vlad will do anything for Coke Zero - but he won't do that.

Paul Dobre

Designer
Paul makes numbers and data beautiful & easy on the eye. He has consulted for numerous business start ups across multiple sectors and has strong libertarian beliefs that give him his passion for crypto currencies. Paul lives and breathes design - and by design he has managed to hide his relationship from his potential father-in-law, an ex-soviet tank commander, for over three years.

Antonio Madeira

Coin Manager
Coming from a long line of Portuguese explorers, he is now venturing, full steam ahead into the crypto space. Antonio, also known as Kanopt of the forums, is in charge of one of the most difficult tasks, keeping up to date with all the cryptos. Not even Ferdinand Magellan or Vasco da Gama can match this guy's thirst for knowledge and discovery. He is also a master of memes and design!

Quynh Tran-Thanh

Crypto Quant
When we first met Quynh we thought she had some kind of magical abilities to spot trends and patterns in our crypto data. It turns out she was 'only' using her brilliant, analytical mind. She looks at our data servers as her minions and is planning on using them to rule the crypto big data and quant world. She is a D3 data visualization genius and an exceptional coder with a wealth of experience in finance.
