Top 25 Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Websites Worldwide

Last updated on June 8th, 2017 at 09:14 pm

Today’s post is a short one. It’s more of a list than an actual post. Due to the recent surge in Bitcoin’s price I decided to review what are the top 25 sites worldwide dealing with Bitcoin.

I ranked the sites according to the amount of traffic they receive each month. I’ve used the Alexa ranking algorithm for this purpose and Theme Punch’s list of the top 1million sites. Here are the results:

When picking out the sites for the list I faced a problem. Many sites are also dedicated to currencies other than Bitcoin so I didn’t know who actually qualifies to make the cut.

In the end I decided to include all sites that aren’t altcoins exchanges, ad networks or market data sites. While these sites do get a large amount of traffic most of it comes from 3rd parties using their services and APIs. Here are the sites that I’ve excluded ordered by size (largest first):

  • Poloniex
  • Bittrex
  • CoinMarketCap
  • CryptoCompare
  • CoinTraffic
  • MyPayingCryptoAds
  • CoinGecko
  • CryptoWat.ch

Some key insights from the results

  • Poloniex is the largest exchange around (bigger than Coinbase, although not on the Bitcoin list)
  • Coinbase is the largest Bitcoin exchange and wallet provider
  • Bitcoin.com (owned by Roger Ver) is now larger than the official Bitcoin.org site
  • FreeBitco.in is the largest Bitcoin faucet and the 3rd Bitcoin site in size worldwide
  • 99Bitcoins is the 24th largest Bitcoin site around. RESPECT!

Things that have changed in the past 2 years

On July 2015 I’ve made a similar post for Bitcoinist (the post has since been moved to Bitcoin.com). That list had only 9 sites but the differences are apparent. Here are the main things that have changed:

  • Coinbase outgrew Blockchain.info (went from #4 to #1)
  • BTC-E’s popularity is diminishing (went from #5 to #10)
  • There’s a considerable smaller amount of faucets in this list than there were 2 years ago. This is mainly due to the fact that Bitcoin’s price and the high transaction fees are making it very expensive to run a faucet.
  • 99Bitcoins wasn’t even close to getting on the list :)

Keep in mind that rankings change daily so when you view this list the ranking may no longer be accurate. That’s why I added a link next to each site for its Alexa ranking. Also, if you think I’ve left a site out please let me know in the comment section below to I can update the list. TO THE MOON!!!

Blogger and owner of 99Bitcoins. I've been dealing with Bitcoin since the beginning of 2013 and it taught me a lesson in finance that I couldn't get anywhere else on the planet. I'm not a techie, I don't understand "Hashes" and "Protocols", I designed this website with people like myself in mind. My expertise is online marketing and I've dedicated a large portion of 99Bitcoins to Bitcoin marketing.

Hello Hieu,

I suggest that you check out vbtc.exchange and bitcoin.vn and if you’d like to buy directly from an individiaul, LocalBitcoins.com too. If you want to buy with a credit card, then CoinMama.com is good for that.

Congrats on how far you’ve come. I’ve been with you for over a year now and I link to your site whenever possible. You guided me through running my own faucet. You’ve also indirectly helped me to structure my websites. You gave me my first.. Well second amount of Bitcoin and guided me through getting rid of my faucet. You are a staple in this community. You also gave my new boss, who is now a very prominent figure in the community, his first Satoshi as well. I asked him if he knew you the first time we talked because… Read more »
