CoinSpectator is mostly known as a crypto news aggregation service, but the site does so much more than that. It is loaded with other features that crypto enthusiasts should be taking advantage of. Utilizing all of CoinSpectator’s features is an easy way to keep updated about the cryptocurrency industry.
CoinSpectator’s news feature
Of course, the main feature of CoinSpectator is its news aggregation. Users can begin to browse the real-time updated feed from the moment they enter the website, but unlike alternatives such as CryptoPanic, CoinSpectator gives users a strong command over the types of content they want to see. At the top bar, you have check-boxes which let you toggle between seeing news, blogs, projects, discussions, influencer news, videos, PR documents, and exchange info. This covers just about every relevant topic in the crypto industry. It also means that you can tailor your experience on the site. You can also switch between the latest news and top news for the day.
Next to each news article listed, you can see several different icons on the right-hand side. If the “fire” sign is next to a piece, it means that it’s currently trending. If the face sign next to it is green, that means users have deemed the piece to be positive for the industry. If it is red, people deemed it has negative— and if it’s greyed out that means people found it either to be neutral, or they haven’t decided what they think of it yet. This is an excellent feature for people who wish to filter out negative content, or perhaps even seek it out.
Clicking on an article reveals even more features. On the right-hand side, a new column will appear which lets you read an excerpt from the article CoinSpectator links to. This is a major time-saver as it means you never have to leave the site to check a piece out.
At the top of the column, there are buttons which let you decide whether you think something is “bullish,” “bearish,” “shilling,” or “fud.” You can only use these buttons if you have an account.
The ICO List
CoinSpectator also hosts an ICO list, where they showcase a handful of ICOs which they deem to be worthy. Here, you can find numerous projects which might be of interest to investors. The ICO projects list provides information about each ICO, their start and finish dates, and links to all their social media accounts (including Slack and Telegram). It makes the process of searching for new projects a pleasure.
At the bottom of each page, CoinSpectator also features a real-time updated list of prices for individual coins and tokens. It shows their price, as well as their percentage of increase or decrease.
The CoinSpectator blog
The blog is a worthwhile portion of the website to check out too. It also focuses on news, but rather than redirecting you to another site (like the aggregator does), this news is written by the CoinSpectator staff. The blog can also be used to find out about new and upcoming features that the site might have planned.
