Has CoinGecko come close to CoinMarketCap traffic?

CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko, two providers of in-depth crypto industry readings, are closer than ever in terms of the interest and traffic they get.

CoinMarketCap, long considered the gold standard in the crypto industry, is now finding itself challenged by the newer but equally determined CoinGecko.

Based on a report by The Ken, a media outlet, CoinGecko clocked in 20.6 million monthly desktop and mobile visitors against CoinMarketCap's 29 million. Both numbers must be viewed with a bit of caution, though.

Unless The Ken has direct access to the websites' Google consoles, there is no way to pinpoint the exact numbers, and there is also the number of consumers using ad-blockers who fail to register as visitors according to Google Analytics.

If the numbers are true, though, it means that CoinGecko has had a 135% increase in traffic, an impressive metric by all standards.

Some hoped to see CoinMarketCap grow even further after Binance acquired the website in April, but this has not happened.

Binance got an immediate bump in the listings on CoinMarketCap with even executives confirming that following the deal with Binance, it would be impossible to be ‘entirely impartial'.

Perhaps that served as the basis for a small exodus that ended up sending people to CoinGecko instead, although this is not confirmed.

CoinGecko, though, welcomed the traffic news, seeming to acknowledge the number, and said it was pleased to have narrowed the gap.

Now, users seem to turn to CoinGecko to find gaming solutions, and other viable crypto products. If you are looking for great gaming opportunities yourself, we recommend stopping by the crypto-powered BitStarz, 1xBit and FortuneJack.
