Nextcoin added!  QuarkCoin is off the listings again temporarily due to a broken block explorer.

Hi there, great site!

I appreciate that you've at least not included Ripple on the main coin market cap list but I was wondering...

My Request

What do you think about decreasing the valuation of Ripple to reflect the amount of XRP that are actually in circulation?

My argument

Bitcoin's market cap for example is judged on the coins so far mined, not the 21 million total that will ever be mined.

So why is Ripple's market cap based on the total 100 Billion that will someday be bought to market when the current price is reflective of only a tiny fractional amount of that XRP being released?

Using Ripples logic, I could issue 100 billion of my own coins, sell a few to my friends for $10 and the market cap for my new currency would be a trillion dollars! Hell, using their methodology we could probably create a crypto with a cap bigger than the world's GDP in a week. I think only fair and credible to judge Ripples market cap by the amount of XRP that have been provably released?

Maybe they could be on their own list, 'the cartel-cryptos' which doesn't reference Bitcoin at all. A cartel-crypto would be defined  as one where greater than 51% of the total issuance was either self issued or in the hands of small cartel. So Ripple could be listed with Mastercoins and maybe Quark and you could add the traditional central bank cartel currencies to that list as well.

The risk is that a lot of these cartel-cryptos will be made and gain huge fake valuations using Ripples techniques which will make your site less credible and be damaging to the genuine crypto currencies whose valuations are more fair and whose whole ethos is about moving away from centralized/cartel owned and manipulated currencies. 

Thanks for considering my request dude! Does anyone else agree with this?

Neat idea, but here are the problems:

1) How do you prove that 'X' amount of XRP have been released?
2) Even if you could prove it, market cap is based on 100 Billion because that's how many there are right now.  The major difference is, at any point in time, OpenCoin can dump their coins on the market.  With Bitcoin, no one can dump unmined coins on the market.

Globalcoin has marketcap of rough $247,000.

Why not listed?

Possibly no working block explorer.

Correct.

Nice sight with a clean layout that focuses on the data.  Kudos!

A feature request if I may...

A Grand Total of Market Cap for all listed Coins.


Done!

Just wondering why Quark has been dropped again?

I assume it's something to do with the block explorer?

AHHH yup, shows up on my other browser. Usually it cuts out that block completely and it runs flush. I was wondering why there were no ads for such a high traffic site Grin

Appreciate the NXT add

Nextcoin added!
Thank you, but Nextcoin is not the official name of the coin. It is just Nxt. Could you please correct that? Please consult the original post where it was announced, the creator BCNext never intended it to be called nextcoin:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=303898.0
and the poll where it was voted that the name shout be Nxt (not Next):
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=340157.0
It is a second-generation currency, and should not be listed as just another *coin. Just like Ripple, eMunie, Protoshares don't have coin in their name.

Hey!  I have an idea!  How about giving us an option to disable the graphs on the right?  It would mean letting us display a ton more data!

I really have to say...that advertisement between position 20 and 21 really kind of ruins the whole website. If you want to make a few bucks with ad impressions, use skyscrapers on the side...never split a website in such an ugly way.
Ah btw, Noirbits is dead since the day you put it up. Argentum too. Colossuscoin was dead weeks before you put it up a couple of days ago...
The site is consistently loosing in quality...and with that traffic increase it should be the other way around.
Just my two cents

By checking Tx/day, Volume, search trends etc...Argentum seems to come right after Colossuscoin, people seem to be interested in the more innovative ones (also the name, it's terrible). Anyway, I meant that it's dead on coinmarketcap, the stats are not updating for Argentum

I want to make the important suggestion that "next generation"-coins like NXT belong on the second page where Ripple is.
The are not mined, so they are very different and a lot of people will call them premined (they call them self as "minted" to not sound so negative)
In the NXT info Thread it isnt clear. So potential users could feel tricked later.
Also NXT could be buyed only on its own exchange.

Also Mastercoin and Copperlark are in the same class when i understood it correct.
If not correct me please.

Well, I appreciate the response anyway Gliss, seems you are aware of the potential problem with them and some other cryptos.
Hmm, maybe you could have an asterisk next to some of them, like XRP, and at the bottom of the page it could read, 'it is believed a majority of the coins in this crypto were self-issued or are controlled by a small cartel, so their valuations may be more questionable.'

Congratulations on the success of the site, keep up the good work!

(Edit: It seems the post above me identifies the same sort of problem.)

I COMPLETELY disagree with this. NXT works completely different than PoW coins like Bitcoin, it's PoS.

Premining does not apply to PoS coins and people need to stop thinking that. We don't call it "minted" to make it not sound negative, we call it "minted" because none of the coins are mined, they were PAID for by stakeholders. Each stakeholder had a maximum stake of 1 BTC INCLUDING the developer.

NXT is not a copy-cat coin like most of these coins, the code isn't even a fork of Bitcoin, it's pretty much in a league of it's own.

Peer-coin is probably the closest thing to it.

Before you try to undermine this coin, please inform yourself on how it actually works. Also X68N, we'd appreciate if you'd stop trolling the NXT threads, we're gaining support from many trusted members of the community who actually know a thing or two about PoS and cryptocoins in general.

X68N should be added on everyone's Ignore list - btw I want ALL coins (even Ripple + Ven) in the default chart.
I am a trader/investor/speculator, I need fast as much info as possible as efficient as possible.

When I trade coins I don't give a flying fuck for their background, I need to see cold numbers.

Hi Gliss
Any chance you could add JouleCoin (XJO) to the list?
Regards

Edit: http://xjo-explorer.cryptohaus.com:2750/chain/Joulecoin, http://xjo-explorer.cryptohaus.com:2750/chains

Current market cap is around $35,000 - 2,112,576 coins created. Traded on Cyptsy exchange.

you can work out some sort of real market cap etc by using velicty of money and depth.

The problem is if I release a crtpto with 1 Trillion coins and get 1 b or two buys at 0.001 BTC I now have a market cap over 1e 12 x 1-e5  = 1e9 = $1 billion.

you need some sort of velocity of money
