The journey of CoinSpectator dates back to 2013 when it started as a cryptocurrency blog. In other words, it was a small independent news portal covering the cryptocurrency industry. Going by the emerging trends in the cryptocurrency sphere, CoinSpectator gradually changed its focus towards becoming a news aggregator.
So, what is a news aggregator?
According to Wikipedia, a news aggregator is client software or a web application which aggregates syndicated web content such as online newspapers, website content, blogs, podcasts, and video blogs in one location for easy viewing. It is also termed a feed aggregator, feed reader, news reader, RSS reader or simply aggregator.
Presently, CoinSpectator has evolved as a full-fledged real-time news aggregator which allows traders, investors, and cryptocurrency enthusiasts to monitor what’s happening in the mainstream crypto industry easily. The website also includes popularity rankings, community voting, and ICO directory.
Let’s quickly run through some of the unique features that CoinSpectator offers.
CoinSpectator comes with the essential element, i.e., a great user interface (UI). Its easy-to-use interface helps users accomplish their tasks in a simple and efficient manner. The design looks succinct and professional. The news on the crypto world collected from different sources is very well-structured. There is, therefore, the least possibility of users losing their way/focus while navigating through its website.
Customized search options:
Do you want to look up for a specific topic in CoinSpectator? Then try out its ‘Filter’ options.
Filter by keyword allows users to search for relevant information by putting in a keyword, like ‘Bitcoin’ or ‘Mining’ etc.
Users can also search by news sources (certain websites) or by a type of content, e.g., hot stories, latest projects, blog articles, opinions of crypto enthusiasts or for other relevant videos on various aspects of the crypto world.
Another key feature of the platform is that it allows you to exclude sponsored articles from the search results. This becomes very useful for users who are looking for a crystal-clear picture of the cryptocurrency market.
The CoinSpectator platform is a free tool that tracks the latest news, analysis, projects, and influencers from a wide range of trusted sources in one simple live feed.

For crypto enthusiasts who are interested in the current rates of the main cryptocurrencies like, BTC, ETH, XRP, EOS, XLM, LTC, USDT, ADA, etc., and how they are performing, the platform offers a separate section at the bottom of the website.
