Cryptocurrency is one of the hottest new technologies on the web these days, especially after BTC climbed all the way to $20,000 USD in December 2017. Because of this surge in popularity, it has also caught the attention of app developers who have been coming up with some really great tools that can help keep your portfolio of cryptocurrencies in check.
If you didn’t know, Bitcoin isn’t the only cryptocurrency available to investors. In fact, there are 1,000 different coins and new ones are being made every day. Because of all these different coins, keeping track of the price can become a tiring effort. If you’re day trading coins, it’s important to know the latest price so that you can buy and sell at the right time.
Enter Cryptocurrency Portfolio apps. These applications allow you to monitor the amount of coins you currently have and any gains or losses you currently have. You can view live charts of the current price, view historical data and see your overall net-worth across all your investments.
These applications don’t store your coins, for that you need a Wallet. Check out some of the best ethereum wallets if you’re interested in Ethereum based coins and ERC20 Tokens. This makes using these portfolio tracking apps very safe and secure, since nothing is at risk.
Here are some of the best cryptocurrency portfolio apps currently available:
Probably my favourite portfolio tracking app. It’s available of both iOS and Android and just recently released a Desktop version for Windows. It tracks the price of each coin by checking the current price on multiple exchanges, so you’ll always know what each coin is currently selling for.
Delta is one of the most actively developed applications, with their developers constantly updating on Twitter with new improvements across the board.
Delta allows you to set notifications for when the price of a coin reaches a certain point, handing if you’re day trading and want to be on the ball. You can track your profit across the last 24 hours or switch to all-time view. You can also check the balance of your portfolio in terms of BTC value.
Blockfolio was released in 2017 and is another popular cryptocurrency tracking app. It can be used on both iOS and Android devices and sports a wealth of features to help manage your coins.
A part from the standard features of being able to list any of the 2,000 support coins, it also comes with some unique offerings such as News Listings, which allow you to keep up to date with the latest new on your specific coin.
It also has a detailed outlook into the graphs and charts of different exchanges of coins. You can view order books and candlestick charts to help make buying and selling decisions.
This app has both a web-view version and also offers an app on both iOS and Android. It has a great dark interface, making it very easy to use and manage your different tracked coins.
One of the best features of Coin Stats is that it allows you to connect to the APIs of various exchanges. This means you can sync your portfolio of coins on exchanges directly to the app, so you need have to update the app with new purchases because the API will directly update it for you. You can view the number of exchanges it supports on their website, including handy tutorials to get started: http://help.coin-stats.com/
This website lists the top cryptocurrencies by market cap however it also has an app version for both iOS and Android that lets you setup a portfolio to keep track of your coin’s price.
Coincap also allows you to manage several portfolios at a time, which is great if you have different sets of coins for different purposes and want to keep the values of them separate. i.e. your brother’s coins, dog’s coins etc.
If the other 4 cryptocurrency portfolio trackers don’t take your fancy, Acrypto might be the one for you. It has a slick UI, offers real-time alerts and supports backing up of your portfolio in the event you lose your phone.
Originally released on just Android, it now is supported on iOS due to the popularity of the app. It’s interface is very user friendly, making it enjoyable to navigate through different charts of coins to get the latest prices.
