Hi, I am James Bayley and I have spent the last six months building a crypto directory with user reviews. It now has over 7000 listings. I launched it a couple of weeks ago and I would really value your opinion.

Do you find it useful? How can I make it better for you?

I think your crypto directory with users review is already perfect. All bitcoiner needs to see and review your site because it is fully loaded from crypto news up and learn about crypto up to trading module is available. It is very good site especially for the newbies and to the bitcoiner that want a continuous learning.

Is your web application crawling the web and acting as a search engine? I definitely like the idea of the website but...

I think the way you should do it as add services manually to your database and retrieve them because honestly, it's really not accurate at all. I tried OTC trading, crypto wallets, etc. I couldn't find a single exchange or wallet I've seen before.

As for the comments, people often don't like to bother and make an account unless there is something in it for them. I would suggest implementing Disqus so they can comment from their Social media accounts instead.

I agree with what OmegaStarScream said. I just clicked on my country's tab and it took me to about 26 business listings of which even one I wasn't familiar with. It did not mention about Unocoin which is a leading exchange in India.

I did not get why exchanges and insurance companies fall under a category "Crypto Wallet".

Good effort op, but the quality of the website needs to be improved. The design looks pretty bland, but it could be improved to another level by hiring the services of a freelancer in this case.

Also, why did you compile information related to less popular websites(Most of them I have never heard of before) op?

Kudos to OP for your hardwork and dedication for providing a crypto directory. It can really be helpful since it has different links segregated depending to users needs, not to mention it has reviews. The site looks simple and user-friendly, this could help a lot of people, especially newbies.

*I am excited to see how much will this site improve in the long-run.

Thank you for the feedback Haunebu. I am a techie not a designer and I am sure that you are right. My next job is to improve the classifications of the data but after that I will work on the design as you suggest.

Not designed to make it easy for the eyes, you can try to  simply make the Nav links on the left side only going down. To  me its more convenient and easy to check  which I wanna look at than checking left to right which link to click. Are you by any chance once it gets known, you will ask fees for the listings?

I think don't have to repeat again that everything you did was researching about every business existing and listing them on a website. Honestly I appreciate your effort and I belive you when you say it took almost 6 months because we are talking about such a high number of businesses available. You should work on your design because it looks like a website built by a beginner and also work on organizing everything in a better looking way. Overall the idea is good but it needs a little improvement.

I like the fact that you have plenty of listings there. I haven't heard about some of the companies and services listed so it is always interesting to check them out and see what they can offer in comparison with the ones I am used with.  As an advice you can work a little bit on the website esthetics. I do like that it is simple and you need to keep it simple going forward, but maybe you can make a more modern design.

I appreciate your ideas to help users evaluate and give personal opinions. But most of the listed projects are not moderated by you or the development team, so many fake ICOs still appear on the website, and I don't like this.

Is your web application crawling the web and acting as a search engine? I definitely like the idea of the website but...

I think the way you should do it as add services manually to your database and retrieve them because honestly, it's really not accurate at all. I tried OTC trading, crypto wallets, etc. I couldn't find a single exchange or wallet I've seen before.

As for the comments, people often don't like to bother and make an account unless there is something in it for them. I would suggest implementing Disqus so they can comment from their Social media accounts instead.

I like to second you. I checked crypto games and I am not aware of the games listed in site.
Games like EOSknight should ake up to the lidt.

For lending section, forum lending section can be included.

Thank you for your helpful comments. The current classifications was done by a script. This is clearly not working and I will need to start classifying the manually as you suggest. Interesting comment about Disqus. I will think about it.

When i try to open the site i get a warning;

Your access to this site was blocked by Wordfence, a security provider, who protects sites from malicious activity.

That mean only some users can access to it or what's the problem?

Nice work it would help a lot for us to search regarding to crypto related stuffs.
It is about time that some one would make a search engine for all of the crypto related topics to make it easier for everyone to search for what they want to know regarding on crypto.

Your website looks attractive, but since I've never seen anything like it before, it's hard to understand what this website's for. Who is your target audience? Is it people working in crypto companies or dealing somehow with crypto-related business? Is it for people interested in investments in cryptos? Is it like a search engine for any crypto-related stuff?
I can also see that not all of the information is available on the website. For instance, the FAQ on advertising on your website is not working. There's also this trust issue regarding the ads. If your website is for people who do something with crypto-related companies, it's important that this website is not biased. If one can buy a top listing (and it won't be clear to customers that it was bought), it devaluates this website.
Anyway, looks cool whatever it is. Good luck!

Thank you for your advice. I will consider it carefully when I redesign the site. Yes, when the site is popular I will charge a monthly fee for listings and for features that help companies manage their user reviews.
