While CoinMarketCap has evolved into the most popular portal for investors to view cryptocurrency prices, the website has experienced a bit of controversy over the years. In Jan. 2018, the website made the sudden decision to remove Korean markets included in their price listing, causing many top coins to appear to drop double digits percentage points seemingly overnight. The result was a mass panic of crypto selloff, leading to further depressed prices and contributing to the shift in cryptos bullish rally at the start of 2018 to what has become more than a year of crypto winter for coin prices.

Just this week, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao called into question the data presented by popular crypto price-trackers such as CoinMarketCap in response to a report alleging most cryptocurrency exchanges are publishing false trading volume.
