Crypto data provider CoinMarketCap continues expanding its reach by integrating its crypto price data into Presearch, a major decentralized search engine.
CoinMarketCap has partnered with Presearch to provide its data feeds to the search engine, allowing users to see CoinMarketCap price data directly on Presearch, according to a Tuesday announcement shared with Cointelegraph.
With the partnership, Presearch’s 2.4 million registered users will instantly see a CoinMarketCap-provided overview for any crypto-related term on the engine, including prices, daily volumes, a market capitalization, circulating supply and total supply.
“The function will roll out immediately tomorrow and will be available wherever users use the search engine,” a spokesperson for Presearch said, adding that the new functionality will be available from the web to mobile.
Additionally, Presearch will get exposure to CoinMarketCap’s millions of visitors via a marketing campaign featuring ongoing promotions. According to data from traffic analytics platform SimilarWeb, CoinMarketCap had 187 million total visits in August 2021. The world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, acquired CoinMarketCap in April 2020.

Launched in 2017, Presearch is a decentralized search engine compensating users for searching on their platform with a cryptocurrency called Presearch (PRE) tokens. “We think the timing for Presearch couldn’t be any better due to the growing backlash against the tech titans like Google, Facebook and Amazon,” Presearch said at the launch. At the time of writing, one PRE token is trading at $0.42, with a market cap of $144 million.
Last month, global tech giant Google listed Presearch as a default browser option for all new and factory-reset Android devices sold in the United Kingdom and Europe.
Optimism across the crypto market continues to rise as bullish developments in the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum (ETH) renewed discussions about a 2013-style double-pump rally that could push (BTC) price past $100,000.
The positive price action hasn’t been limited to the top two market leaders. Many altcoins continue to rally and the ‘altseason’ indicator from Cointelegraph Markets Pro is signaling that the momentum could continue for a while longer.
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that the biggest gainers over the past 24-hours were Presearch (PRE), Aragon (ANT) and IOTA (MIOTA).
Presearch’s android app will debut on Chrome
The top performer of the day is Presearch, a blockchain-based, decentralized search engine that is community-driven and allows users to search privately and earn rewards for their activity.
VORTECS™ data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro began to detect a bullish outlook for PRE on Sept. 1, prior to the recent price rise.
The VORTECS™ Score, exclusive to Cointelegraph, is an algorithmic comparison of historic and current market conditions derived from a combination of data points including market sentiment, trading volume, recent price movements and Twitter activity.
As seen in the chart above, the VORTECS™ Score for PRE began to rise as the price of PRE started to increase, and reached a high of 73 on Sept. 1, around one hour before its price increased 245% over the next day.
The boost in momentum and price for the project came after the project announced that the Presearch Android application will be added to the ‘choice screen’ on factory reset phones and it will be available as a default search option on Chrome.
Aragon benefits from its partnership with Polygon
Aragon is an Ethereum network-based protocol that focuses on the creation of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO) as a way to help projects develop governance structures so that their communities can get involved with the development of the protocol.
VORTECS™ data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro began to detect a bullish outlook for ANT on Sept. 1, prior to the recent price rise.
As seen in the chart above, the VORTECS™ Score for ANT climbed into the green zone on Aug. 31 and reached a high of 71 on Sept. 1, just two hours before its price began to surge by 77% over the next day.
The sudden spike in interest for ANT came following the Sept. 2 announcement that Aragon had partnered with Polygon to help make the process of launching DAOs on the Aragon network more cost-effective.

Protocol updates push IOTA price higher
IOTA is a distributed ledger protocol that utilizes a proprietary technology called Tangle to perform consensus and confirm transactions.
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that after reaching a low of $0.96 on Sept. 1, the price of MIOTA spiked 55% to an intraday high at $1.50 on Sep. 2 as its 24-hour trading volume surged 234% to $681 million.
The sudden surge in interest for the project comes after the protocol integrated the Hornet update, which brought back the auto-peering feature and also integrated a faucet plugin with the Hornet node. This makes the process of running a private ‘Tangle’ easier.
The overall cryptocurrency market cap now stands at $2.214 trillion and Bitcoin’s dominance rate is 41.9%.

Trezor, a major hardware cryptocurrency wallet supplier, has warned its users about a fake Trezor application on Google Play.
According to Trezor, the fake app is malicious and has no relation to Trezor or SatoshiLabs, a company that created the Trezor wallet. Announcing the news on Jan. 18, Trezor asked its clients to not install the malicious application, reminding users that they should never share their seed phrase with anyone.
Warning to all Trezor owners using Android devices!
This app is malicious and has no relation to Trezor or SatoshiLabs. Please, don’t install it.
Remember that you should never share your seed with anyone until your Trezor device asks you to do it! pic.twitter.com/6C3iKfPDnR

Trezor also provided its users with a short manual on using Trezor wallet with Android. In the manual, the company listed major third-party Trezor apps including Mycelium, Sentinel or Walleth.
At publishing time, the malicious app is still available on Google Play. As of Jan. 18, the app was reportedly downloaded more than 1,000 times. The doppelgänger app also has about 200 reviews on the app store, with the majority warning that it is a scam. “This app is a scam. Never enter your recovery phrase in anything except an official hardware Trezor. Anyone that asks for this phrase (besides a physical Trezor) is trying to scam you),” one supposed user wrote.
Trezor did not immediately respond to Cointelegraph’s request for comment.
This is not the first time that a fake app has been listed on Google Play. In May 2019, Cointelegraph reported on a malicious Google Play app imitating Trezor wallet. The app was found by ESET antivirus researchers, who said that they expect more crypto scam apps to enter the Android store as the crypto market grows.
Online scammers have been targeting other popular crypto companies to impersonate their apps on Google and steal money from users. In May 2020, a cybersecurity researcher discovered 22 malicious Google Chrome extensions imitating crypto services like Trezor’s rival Ledger and major Ether (ETH) wallet MetaMask.
