### A Clean, Modern Cryptocurrency Data Site - In support of Alloy

**Background & Motivations**

I was really overwhelmed by all the cluttered sites for cryptocurrency data. It seemed to be a theme that if you wanted any information in the crypto space, you had better be prepared for a full on assault from a storm of ICO ads (probably why Facebook and Google dropped them). You could never just visualize data for the sake of data. And ultimately, I felt like crypto-data sites weren't built for the end user so much as they were for advertisers.

I wanted something **simple, clean and minimalistic** without sacrificing utility. I couldn't really find anything that fit that so I created my own tool. It's called AlloyIndex - Alloy is our project's name and Index because we want to add a few indices (financial metrics) at a later point.

It's not perfect but I wanted to share it in the hopes that Reddit could help me find ways to improve it. It loads best on mobile and desktop--I'll add support for intermediate devices later. **What kind of features would you like that you can't get elsewhere?** Features for now are limited and honestly, most of the data you can find in other places (not claiming you can't). It's the appearance, presentation and most importantly *user experience* of that data I was primarily focusing on. But we do plan on adding more sophisticated data analytics tools to further distinguish ourselves at a later point, if it seems people are interested in AlloyIndex (ie. semantic analysis, social media mentions, auto-trading tools, portfolios/accounts etc.). I have a background in machine learning and natural language processing so I'm excited to apply some of those techniques to data in this space.

Any constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated! If you do end up liking AlloyIndex, feel free to use it Cheesy. Overall, I hope you find useful if not at the very least easy on the eyes.
