Got the crypto bug? But can’t keep up? Lots of us in that camp!

At Hypermode we are incubating Mertium – a crypto & finance news aggregator that uses advanced AI to show trending crypto news along with latest market trends in a hyper-personalized manner. Crypto is exploding! Bitcoin was the fastest to reach $1 Trillion Market Capitalization in just 12 years, beating Google, Amazon, and Apple – it’s moving really fast!

Crypto enthusiasts get their news from various sources, too many if you ask us!!!:   

And market data from: 

It is a bit of a headache to keep. That’s where Mertium steps in!! We aggregate news and market data into a single feed to give you a crypto edge. We plan to roll out an AI-based personalization feature that will make that edge even edgier! You like Polkadot – well you will get more Polkadot. If you like Shiba Inu (well, first we don’t judge), you get your Shib-fix as well. The stories are shown in the form of cards/tiles with an infinite scroll experience – just like Twitter or LinkedIn.

Tech behind the Scenes

The AI based algorithm uses IBM Watson. We manually trained it over two years by tagging 10,000+ articles. Since then, it has fetched data from over 250,000 articles that provide the latest/trending news about both crypto  and finance. 

Ranking the stories in order of ‘Trendiness’

News articles are scored to determine trendiness – we call it “Mertium Rank.

Trendiness is gauged by collecting signals from social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. We also use Textrazor’s NLP to perform keyword analysis, so we have another layer of analytics around buzzy keywords. 

When you gaze into Mertium, it gazes back at you

The more articles you click on, the more the Mertium proprietary AI will optimize the feed it will give you stories that are hyper-relevant.

Stay updated with Crypto Market Data

You can browse Mertium to look for crypto-related market data on the homepage of the website.

From the coins that are trading up to trading down to coins that have are trading with heavy volume. You can adjust the market data based on a time filter. We plan to also add coins trending on social and price momentum. 

What’s Next?

We are building a crypto roadmap. Here are some ideas we are thinking about:

* Social Media: allow people to comment and engage with the content (think Twitter for Crypto)

* Mobile App: creating a native app for more interactivity

* Become a DAO and issue our own coin

Exciting times ahead!
TL; DR – too many places to get crypto news with too much info – Mertium has a simple feed with the most trending crypto news. Happy crypto scrolling!
