Three months ago we began building Solume.io with the goal of making tools to help crypto traders understand their markets better. We aimed to put an end to all those countless hours spent on social media in search of what people are talking about. Later on, we had wider vision in which a worthy goal would be to be the leading provider of insight and information to traders and investors in the crypto-space.

In order to create a better experience to our audience, here’s a small user’s guide to Solume.io

What can you find at Solume.io?

Solume.io is currently divided into two pages: the main page and coin page.
