To celebrate the 5th anniversary of CoinMarketCap, the company has made several announcements improving its offering and refreshing its image, including a new logo and design, a Watchlist, upgraded API, and last but not least, a mobile application.

At first glance, you will notice an updated logo that embodies the ups and downs of the crypto market within its “CMC” branding. The website has also been given a facelift, with new fonts and colors which the company says is “designed to capture the essence of CoinMarketCap: simplicity and accuracy.”

A new Watchlist feature has been added, which allows users to quickly and easily track specific cryptocurrencies without having to wade through a sea of coins. By clicking a star on a coin’s page, CoinMarketCap will use cookies to store data on your device so your Watchlist is ready each and every visit. An update is planned in the future to sync Watchlists between devices.

CoinMarketCap has also upgraded their API, fixing some minor issues and adding some under the hood improvements.

The most exciting and welcome announcement, is that CoinMarketCap has launched a mobile app, that provides the same CoinMarketCap experience through a lightweight and simple-to-use mobile interface. The new logo and Watchlist feature are also included in the new mobile app, which is available to download on the Apple iOS App Store.

CoinMarketCap launched in 2013, and since then, the site and its traffic have grown considerably alongside the cryptocurrency market as it drew significant interest from the mainstream over the last few years. At its launch, CoinMarketCap tracked only seven cryptocurrencies with a total market cap of $1.6 billion. Today, the popular site (and now mobile app) track over 1600 coins with a market cap of over $400 billion.
