We’re pleased to announce that our new embeddable cryptocurrency pricing widget is up and running in the wild. It’s not only the fastest crypto pricing widget around, but it’s also mobile responsive and insanely flexible.
By default, the widget displays live charts and prices in terms of US Dollars (USD), but you can quote a cryptocurrency in any fiat or cryptocurrency you like. For example, you could quote Bitcoin (BTC) in a major fiat currency like USD, Euros or Japanese Yen, or you could use your local fiat currency, which may be less commonly traded.
Mouse along the chart to check how many Uruguayan pesos it took to buy Bitcoin 4 hours ago, 12 hours ago, 24 hours ago, etc.
Whichever currencies you choose, you get a live price chart and an array of real-time indicators, each of which is expressed in terms of your quote currency. These indicators include 1) current price, 2) percentage changes in price over the past 24 hours, week, month and year, 3) market cap ranking, 4) transparent trading volume, 5) trading volume, 6) price as a percentage of the all-time high (ATH), and 7) market cap.
Tons of Real-Time Indicators
For the current price and its percentage change over the past 24 hours, check out the top right corner.
Percentage changes in price over the past Week, Month, and Year are listed across first row beneath the live price chart. The final item of the first row is Rank, which, in the case of the above screenshot, is #14. At the moment the screenshot was taken, ChainLink (LINK) was #14 in the cryptocurrency market cap rankings. Market cap, or market capitalization, is a cryptocurrency’s total number of coins or tokens multiplied by the value of each in a given quote currency.
The first two items in the second row are Transparent Volume and Volume. To understand transparent volume, it may be helpful to define volume. Put simply, volume is the amount of a cryptocurrency that is being traded across the world’s cryptocurrency exchanges. Transparent volume is the slice of that volume occurring on exchanges that have received an A+, A, or A- transparency rating from Nomics. These highly-rated exchanges are deemed transparent or trustworthy because they’ve provided Nomics with high-granularity trade data, including full histories for each trading pair. For more on transparent volume, see this essay.
Continuing along the second row, the next item after Transparent Volume and Volume is ATH, or all-time high. Here, ATH expresses a cryptocurrency’s value as a percentage of the highest it ever was. Take XLM/USD as an example:
Considering the price history of Stellar, 5.99 cents per Lumen is pretty low. According to the widget, it’s just 7% of the ATH price. To get the ATH price, simply mouse over the indicator. You’ll see that at one point, Stellar was worth nearly 90 cents per Lumen!
After ATH comes our final real-time indicator, Mkt Cap or market cap, which we previously defined as a cryptocurrency’s total number of coins or tokens multiplied by the value of each in a given quote currency. Let’s take another look at LTC/DOGE.
According to the widget, Litecoin’s market cap – expressed in Dogecoins – is 1.38 trillion DOGE. Whether anyone would need to know that is immaterial. The point is that our cryptocurrency pricing widget offers unprecedented flexibility. There are many situations that would call for evaluating a cryptocurrency in terms of something other than commonly-traded fiat currencies like USD, EUR, and JPY.
How to Embed the Cryptocurrency Pricing Widget
To get your very own embeddable cryptocurrency pricing widget, visit our widget builder at https://widget.nomics.com/ or click on the “widget” tab while viewing any cryptocurrency on Nomics.com.
If you use the widget builder, you can set the quote and base currencies. If you’re on the “widget” tab of a cryptocurrency, that cryptocurrency will be the base. You just choose how to quote it.
Once you’re happy with your choices, click “COPY CODE”, select a spot in your website’s HTML to embed the widget, and paste. Cryptoasset projects often place our widget in the sidebar, but it also works well front and center on a homepage. It’s mobile responsive, so it really looks great everywhere. Seriously. Shrink your browser window and see what happens to ADA/ETH (below).
Meanwhile, if you have any support issues, feature requests, or comments, let us know on our forums.
We encourage you to visit the widget builder and play around with different base and quote currencies. If your cryptoasset project requires more than one combination, feel free to embed multiple widgets on your site.
Though our embeddable cryptocurrency pricing widget has only been around for a short time, it has already found fans in every corner of the Cryptoverse. We’re not surprised. Our widget loads quickly, it’s completely mobile responsive, and it’s available for every asset on Nomics.com.
