About thematic lists

Atom's thematic lists can be used for creating discovery experiences within your app. In contrast to daily lists, the contents of thematic lists rarely change throughout the day. While daily lists are meant to reflect events and market activity, thematic lists are built around longer-term trends, themes, and fundamental characteristics of the assets themselves. These lists may still be periodically updated depending on evolving market trends, new asset additions, etc. In addition, new lists may be created, and old ones may be retired, depending on evolving market themes and trends.

Thematic list collections

Thematic lists are grouped into the following collections based on their construction characteristics:
