2020 shall become a year of fine tuning the design, expanding content and filling the gaps in the market to help crypto customers to become CoinCompanions. As noted in our previous Buzz, we hired a content writer. The content on the broker pages are growing and growing as we speak. All the information regarding each broker will be available on one page! We are also going to evaluate our current brokers and exchanges to ensure continuity and making sure they still have the specifications to stay on CoinCompare.
Besides the ones that we already support, we also had some requests to add new brokers and exchanges. Two of those have made it to become ‘potentials’ to be listed on CoinCompare in the future. But first, we are working on an addition besides our comparing service.
Stay tuned for more details !

In our Buzz of December 2019 we crowned Coinmerce as the Best Deal Broker of the year! A first in the CoinCompare history.
Shall they also prevail for 2020? Let’s find out, but first let’s kick off with January. Please read the disclaimer below the trophy to understand how the best deal broker is determined. 16 brokers with 189 comparable prices are monitored to come to the following result:
Bitqist! It is quiet at the broker from Rotterdam. Zero (de)listings. Working on something big maybe? Currently nothing mentioning worthy. Regarding the broker share they had to give a little bit back to the others, in compare to December. They ended December with 76 entries and a 20.21% share. January ended with 70 entries and a 18.32% share. A loss of 1.89%. Nothing to be scared of. Normal fluctuation .
Bitvavo! The most stable provider for months on CoinCompare, regarding their entries and share. It is for months now that they have around 105 entries and a 27% share. December ended with 103 entries and a 27.39% share. In January they had 104 entries with a 27.22% share. A small loss of 0.17% . Unfortunately, also no news from them as well.
Coinmerce! The number 1 provider at CoinCompare . Again proving it for a new month, with 135 entries and a 35.34% share. A gain of 0.24% as they ended December with 132 entries and a 35.10% share. As of writing in February, they recently launched their new and amazing web and app design. Simplicity and clarity are one of the key pillars to this new design and we like it !
The best deal provider of the month is determined independently with the average of cumulating buy and sell prices of all the best deals that are shown on our homepage. Logically, the larger the variety of crypto offered, the most chance of becoming the winner. In the end it is still the price of the crypto that matters as it has to be comparable. Discounts in Tiers and VIP levels are not included in the calculation. As deals change several times a day, due to the volatility of prices, the broker with the best deal can therefore change as well. Due to that fluctuation we take two snapshots per day to the determine the broker for that day with the most entries on our main page of our website.
