In the opening paragraph I referenced situations where you might hear about a cryptocurrency for the first time, but if you are reading this and don’t have a specific coin in mind you may want to check out CoinGecko (pictured) or CoinMarketCap. For this guide we will use CoinGecko*
CoinGecko’s home page has a few tabs you can explore. You can check out recently added coins and maybe get the jump on something new, or sort “all coins” by metrics like volume or market cap.
Once you have an interest project in your sights, you can start your research.
(*We like CoinGecko – you can see our article celebrating their entrance into the top 500 sites in the world)
