Crypto analytics startup Messari recently faced a shadowban from twitter for covering COVID-19 related news. However, it has now come up with a way to analyze the impact of the pandemic on the crypto market.
While COVID-19 has been sweeping through the global economy including crypto over the last few weeks, Messari is helping its users to have a clear understanding of where various assets stand at the moment. The firm announced its latest COVID-19 charting features, that will allow users to assess the performance of a number of assets amid the coronavirus outbreak. These include – Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, stocks and indexes, metals, crude oil, and uranium.
In order to access this feature, users will have to choose an option called ‘Covid V Markets’ from the chart search bar and select their desired asset to tally it against COVID data.
Ryan Selkis, founder of Messari tweeted:

Traditional market data AND COVID-19 data have been full integrated into our charting feature 📈 https://t.co/Ng1kRLEK9C

Messari claimed that it is sourcing the data from eodhistoricaldata.com, which allows users to keep track of the COVID-19 cases worldwide in a country-wise manner.
To explain how the data charting works, Messari tweeted from its Twitter handle:
Traditional market data is now live in our charting feature! 📈

Apart from exclusively giving information about COVID-19, Messari’s charts are providing comparable data for users to analyze the performance of various assets before, after and during the Corona massacre.
