Crypto․com CEO Complains About Coinmarketcap․com’s Exchange Rankings
A recent tweet stemming from the CEO of Crypto.com’s Kris Marszalek indicates the exchange executive is upset with the web portal coinmarketcap.com. Marszalek claims that Crypto.com’s exchange volumes are being misreported and the trading platform’s ranking was changed to the 14th position on a whim.
“Merry Christmas to [the]Team [at] Coinmarketcap who a week after my response to their poorly worded tweet arbitrarily reduced our exchange ranking to 14th,” Marszalek tweeted on Christmas day. “We are 2nd/3rd on Coingecko so you guys know where to look for real and market neutral data,” the exchange CEO added.
According to statistics on coinmarketcap.com, Crypto.com’s exchange ranking is 16th on Sunday. However, Coingecko’s spot exchange metrics indicate that Crypto.com’s ranking is second in terms of trade volume rankings today. Coingecko stats show that Crypto.com has a 24-hour trading volume of $2.8 billion. Meanwhile, coinmarketcap.com (CMC) metrics show Crypto.com’s volume is $1.5 billion and down more than 15%.
Following Marszalek’s tweet, a number of people responded to his claims. Official Baby Doge team saidThey were having difficulty getting CMC to confirm the supply of BABYDOGE. Coingecko’s co-founder Bobby Ong thanked Marszalek for his compliment. “Merry Christmas Kris,” Ong replied. “Thanks for all the support. Have a happy holiday with your family.”
A number of other people who responded to Marszalek’s tweet said that it was well understood that the trading platform Binance owns CMC. “CMC is owned by Binance… I’m not surprised,” one person replied to the Crypto.com executive’s tweet. “[I] never use CMC since Binance bought them,” another person responded.

“Following the irregularities we observed on our platform this afternoon,” CMC wrote in response to the complaints, “[and]As a last step to our internal remediation process, we’ll be restarting servers even though the issue has been resolved. Apologies for the inconvenience,” the web portal’s team wrote. CMC jokes about it later in the afternoon tweeted:
