Importing Coins

The Coin Importer was designed to save you time and to make it easy to bulk import coin data into your site. To limit the amount of calls made to the CoinMarketCap API, you can import five (5) coins at a time.

Each coin will be imported with its data intact and will even upload the coin’s image to your Media Library. This is a nice touch as you will be able to use your favorite coin’s logos anywhere in your site by simply entering your Media Library.
