Undeniable that the DeFi hype is real. Or is it more than a hype? Probably still to early to conclude. But, one thing is for sure and that is that DeFi (Decentralized Finance) is a keeper looking at the charts and the amount of crypto that has been added for the last two months. In July Compound (COMP) was one of the noticeable ones and in August we have Band Protocol (BAND), Dia (DIA), Swipe Token (SXP), Reserve Rights Token (RSR) and many others. An “older” DeFi crypto that profited from the DeFi hype is Chainlink (LINK). The price surged resulting in a new all time high and a spot in the top 10.
Polkadot (DOT) entered the top 10 ranking based on marketcap as well. Polkadot (DOT) recently underwent a redenomination which caused the amount to be 100x smaller than the old DOT. Therefore, your DOT balance will be 100x higher and the price per DOT will be 100x lower for that moment. But the price rose, moving the crypto up in the charts.
In August Bitcoin (BTC) hit the € 10,000.- average buy price mark on CoinCompare. The sell price hit the same mark not much later. A great event as the value stayed for a long time around the 10k boundary. As of writing the market doesn’t look promising. A lot of signs are showing that a bearish time is coming up. Probably due to the strong Euro and Dollar and liquidated futures.

Here are the best deal providers of the month August. Over the past month 13 providers with 176 comparable crypto’s and 352 buy and sell prices are monitored to come to the following result:
Bitladon! At number three, far from the top 2, Bitladon. Bitladon is keen to ensure their users have the availability of the newest crypto. They also add those to attract new users. Unfortunately their price (without VIP discounts) is still high. But, it is still enough to ensure bronze with 61 entries and a 17.32% share. A loss of 0.86%.
Bitvavo! We like their web and app platform, clear buy and sell process, transparent and visible fee costs, good prices, simple yet modern design, but still lacking new crypto. It’s going to cost them customers. We know it is harder for Bitvavo to add new crypto, because as an official exchange they manage and create their own order books. The competitions is working with order books of big exchanges like Binance and KuCoin which makes it easier to add the order books of a new crypto. Anyway, steady holding silver with 107 entries and a 30.39% share. A loss of 0.86% in compare to previous month.
Coinmerce! The king of the providers on CoinCompare! Not everything is perfect, but they sure do have the most best deals and are therefore the Best deal provider on CoinCompare with 141 entries and a 40.05% share. In compare to July a small loss of 0.85%. Swaps, trading crypto for crypto, hasn’t been launched yet, so besides their listing activity there are great things coming up. See you next month!
The best deal provider of the month is determined independently with the average of cumulating snapshots of 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 provider with the best deal can therefore change as well. Due to that fluctuation we take two snapshots per day to the determine the provider for that day with the most entries on our price comparison page.
