Today, we at CoinGecko are proud to share “Beam” – our latest product feature that will improve transparency amongst blockchain projects. We are especially proud to be working with 87 token projects and 12 exchanges that are the launch partners for CoinGecko Beam.
By providing a new communication channel through which to post project updates, CoinGecko Beam allows verified administrators of tokens and exchanges to engage directly with the wider crypto community.
CoinGecko Beam is available at https://www.coingecko.com/beam and also on our iOS and Android mobile app. There, you can see multiple project updates in one single, unified interface. With the launch of Beam, you can easily follow and receive short project updates from multiple token teams, without having to search through social media and project blogs.

Updates contributed by teams are made available via the CoinGecko API, CoinGecko Beam RSS, and CoinGecko Beam Widget. CoinGecko Beam launches today with 4 other crypto apps integrating the CoinGecko Beam API into their websites and apps. This integration increases CoinGecko Beam’s reach to more than 2 million monthly unique users. We would like to thank CryptoID, CoinMarketApp, Crypto Market Cap, and CoinTrendz for successfully integrating our API. We are looking forward to discussing, with other developers, the integration of our CoinGecko Beam API.

Upon Beam’s launch, TM Lee, CEO of CoinGecko, said, “CoinGecko Beam is a major feature that we hope will improve communications and transparency in the crypto community. This industry is riddled with misinformation, and project teams find it hard to stand out from all the communication clutter. We are committed to building tools that support the growth of the blockchain industry to make it more transparent via verified information sources.”
Thomas Schouten, Head of Marketing of Lisk, one of the cryptocurrencies featured in CoinGecko Beam, said, “We are very happy that CoinGecko is taking this initiative to improve transparency and project visibility in the blockchain ecosystem. CoinGecko has proven to be a great additional channel for us to connect with LSK token holders, as well as watchers, we are excited to see how Beam will develop.”
Curis Wang, CEO of the Bitrue exchange, said, “In this bearish market, we need good indicators to track teams’ progress and differentiate between strong and weak teams. CoinGecko Beam is a good way for crypto followers to track progress. We appreciate CoinGecko for providing such a tool for exchanges like us to share updates with the community.”
