Before investing on BTC (Bitcoin), LTC (Litecoin), NMC (Namecoin) and/or some other cryptocurrency (digital currency), it is better to have a look at their past and current exchange prices and volumes.
Mt.Gox, BTC-E, Bitstamp and some other BTC exchanges do offer the data, but DC-Charts will collect data from all of those markets, and show them as charts.
Up till now, DC-Charts has supported the following 8 cryptocurrencies:
- Bitcoin (BTC),
- Litecoin (LTC),
- Namecoin (NMC),
- Peercoin (PPC),
- Feathercoin (FTC),
- Novacoin (NVC),
- Terracoin (TRC),
- Primecoin (XPM).
You can choose any of the above as Base Cryptocurrency, select USD, CNY, EUR or some other as Quote Currency, and pick up Mt.Gox, BTC-E, BTCChina or some other as Exchange, then you can get the price chart as well as the volume (market depth) chart.
For the price chart, you can show the data of 1 week, 1 day, 1 hour or some other period, you can select the auto refresh time, and you can also change the scale, size and theme, as what you can see from the following image:
And for the volume chart, you can change the size, theme and order numbers, and you can also see the latest bids and asks, as what you can see from the following image:
Besides charts, you can also calculate the price of your cryptocurrency with the Calculator, by just entering the amount of your cryptocurrency and choosing the result currency, as what you can see from the following image:
What is more, you can also embed price charts and current price widgets you like into your own site, such as the following BTC price chart based on Mt.Gox:
But the chart (or widget) will be refreshed every 15 minutes, which you can't change, and you can't customize the size, either.
