Brandon Chez is the creator of the world's most popular cryptocurrency website, CoinMarketCap. Since its inception in 2013, the website has grown to become the world's leading cryptocurrency information authority and one of the most visited websites of all time. In 2020, Brandon Chez oversaw the institution of new mechanisms for combatting industry-wide prevalence of inflated reported volumes from exchanges sharing their market data with CoinMarketCap after acquiring Hashtag Capital in late 2019. CoinMarketCap is also acquired by Binance in 2020.
Brandon Chaz founded the largest online cryptocurrency aggregator. This site consolidates data from all exchanges and based on this data determines the value of cryptocurrency. Users can learn basic information about cryptocurrencies: capitalization, price, number of circulating coins, trading volume in 24 hours, percentage of price change per hour, 24 hours, and per week.
The name of Brandon Chez is associated with the largest crash in the cryptocurrency market in history. On January 8, 2018, almost all cryptocurrencies fell in value by 15 per cent or more, and the market capitalization decreased by $100,000,000,000. Chez was figured as the culprit; it turns out that on February 7, his Coinmarketcap excluded data from South Korean exchanges without warning, the prices of which are consistently above the world average, and resultantly, the value of Bitcoin fell, pulling down all the other cryptocurrencies along with it.
