Use CoinGecko API For Missing Currencies

Currently CoinMarketCap is the only thing being used to get coin info. They have strict rules on which coins get listed. CoinGecko has a larger amount of coins being tracked and add new ones faster. There are currencies that probably wont ever be listed on CoinMarketCap but already are listed on CoinGecko. Their API is free to use, so we should be getting info from there for all the missing currencies to either replace or supplement the CoinMarketCap API. Below is a link to the CoinGecko API.

Agree, this would make a HUGE difference to usability and instantly solve a tonne of these ‘please add this coin’ requests. My main gripe about Accointing is the way it handles ‘unknown coins’.

Yes, agreed that CoinGecko offers broader support for currencies. Would like to see it connected.

Any update on this? Having to manually track some of my non-CMC coins in a separate spreadsheet is tedious and time-consuming, and I miss out on some of the great portfolio visualization tools that are already present in the software.

“Do you know who could fix it?”

Hm, just post all tasks as “Freelance Code Bounties” on “Git” lol (partly kidding)

Like as (for example) other do todays:

As an old CodingCat I do occasionally pick one or two web3 or crypto tasks there when my old fingers are itching and feel the need to do some good old coding fun again. (Which doesn’t happen often anymore.) Done my 20yrs+ of agile or extreme duty already :smiley_cat: :cat2:

But anyway, it is a good spot to find talented “and fresh!” crypto related coders who may (if both parties fall in love to each other) want to work fulltime on|for accointing. Who knows… (?)

This partly might solve the problem with liquidity pool transactions. Still, when investing on PancakeSwap for instance, all farms reflect your holdings with tokens named „Pancake LPs“. The name is the same for every farm, but the values are different. CoinGecko does not help out here imho. Custom tokens would do.

So also consider upvoting this feature:

I have 12 unknown currencies that are all on CoinGecko.
Once CoinGecko API integration is configured I will pay for Accointing Reports.

A statement from Accointing:
“We have a solution planned for ALL of these unknown currency problems.”
I know it is vague, but that is all I can say.

Hi Matt, are you able to share what the approximate timeline is for this new solution? Many thanks.
