When they first started trading cryptocurrency, they were only looking at market data, price, and market capitalisation. They realised it wasn’t enough to do trading based on market data itself. They started looking at Github pages and developers pages to get a sense if this cryptocurrency was going to stick around for awhile. They initially had to do a lot of manual work to navigate between the different pages. Finally, they established a website where all information on cryptocurrency is available.
