Hi HNers,

It's been awhile since we posted here about our release of CoinHub[1] and everyone gave some amazing feedback. Since then, we’ve expanded to build our own data network because we grew frustrated with the lack of real-time pricing, news, and social posts. Most of the stuff out there is polled and could be up to 15 minutes late. So we’ve launched Blockmodo[2].

One thing that we had a huge issue with is keeping track with all the coins that are in the market. We decided to open source our entire token database:


We’ve spent hundreds of hours curating information on hundreds of coins and we wanted the process to be a community process going forward. Let us know what you think!
