CoinGecko is now our official coin data services provider! We are proud to announce that we have officially switched our data services over to CoinGecko going forward; and, it’s live on the site, even as we speak (you may need to refresh ) to see it inside of our favorite coins section.
We also link people directly to CoinGecko from inside of the Favorite Coins List for each SoMee user.
How did we find CoinGecko?
SoMee CEO, Christopher Kramer and Business Development and Social Media Marketing lead Aaron Kesel (Catoshi Nakamoto) met with CoinGecko’s Co-Founder, Bobby_Ong earlier this year to discuss the strategic partnership. Bobby’s last name just fit with our coin’s ticker onG, right?
So, who, exactly, is CoinGecko?
First ,and foremost, they believe in the power of Free Cryptocurrency data! Their objective is to elevate crypto participants’ understanding of fundamental factors that drive the market. CoinGecko is one of the largest and earliest crypto data aggregators, operating since early 2014. It currently tracks nearly 7000 tokens from more than 403 cryptocurrency exchanges. They are fully transparent in that respect, so they align with our core values of Choice and transparency perfectly!
CoinGecko believes data should be democratized, and so do we. We believe everyone has the right to crypto, not just the elite few.

CoinGecko has a solid team of cryptocurrency specialists working hard to bring top notch cryptocurrency data, they’ve been in operation since early 2014, and have extensive market data available for use. We’ll be capitalizing on some of that in the near future as well (not just coin/token pricing)

Why we chose them?
Put it simply, our core value is choice, their core value is transparency and access. That’s perfectly aligned with what we want. We’ve been working with them for some time, negotiating back and forth between what it means to use SoMee and CoinGecko together, and we know it will provide not only US with the benefits we need to provide YOU the information you need, but also let YOU as the consumer have better access to coin/token data while on our platform.
Here’s looking to a great future with SoMee and CoinGecko!
