Portfolio Apps play a vital role for professional traders, serious investors and those new to blockchain alike — providing a way of monitoring currency and tokens of interest in real-time.
These apps enable anyone with an actual stake or potential interest in an exchange-listed digital asset, to keep tabs on their portfolios and often the marketplace at large — whether they check in hourly, daily or monthly.
Thanks to the mushrooming interest and investment coming into the trading space, the number of apps and sites designed to track the performance of a users’ portfolio has exploded. Incredibly, right now there are more than 200 different crypto portfolio tracker apps available just on the Appstore alone. Since this article was first compiled in October 2018, we’ve seen many of the big players make massive development investments in their apps, with a second generation of tracker apps now ruling the roost with all kinds of new features.
While choice and competition is normally a good thing, it can be a little bewildering to ascertain just which portfolio app has the right range of features for you. While the benefits of having a good one are easily grasped — from faster and more accurate trading information to better decision-making — a trial-and-error approach to sift through all those apps is clearly time better spent elsewhere.
In this article (which has been re-researched and re-written for October 2019) I outline my views on the best of the bunch (please contact me at email@example.com if you spot anything I’ve missed).
Hopefully this read will save you valuable trading time and shortcut your route to the right portfolio tracker.
1. Coin Stats
Cryptocurrency Portfolio Tracker and Research | Coin Stats
Portfolio Track all of your cryptocurrency holdings in one place Alerts Personalized alerts to always keep you on top…
We have a new Number 1! Coin Stats, which was already a highly-rated Top 5 crypto portfolio tracker in our last review, has come on by leaps and bounds since we first wrote this article — and is officially the new sheriff in crypto-tracker town, in our opinion!
Platform-wise it is widely available including Web, iOS, Android, Mac OS, iOS not to mention Telegram Bot and even Apple Watch. The user interface has been hugely improved and functionality gets boosted on a monthly basis. Plus it has massively expanded its coin coverage to 5000 coins across 250+ exchanges.
It has all the automated exchange portfolio import functionality you would expect, plus a diverse news aggregator tracking a wide range of sources, including Reddit and Twitter for each coin. Amongst a host of powerful additional features are:
· A Quick Trade feature , which means you can now perform simple swap trades on exchanges directly from the app.
· CoinStats Insights, which provides aggregated statistics of coin ownership and trading amongst the 500k users of the CoinStats service (a combined $5bn tracked).
· Alert settings with the ability to receive notifications based on not only price, but also market cap and volume.
The Pro functionality ($5 a month or $40 a year) represents fantastic value when you consider the additional features you receive. These include: unlimited exchange and wallet syncing; useful auto alerts when new coins are added or existing coins rapidly change in price by 10%+; more detailed portfolio analytics; prioritised support; not to mention Order Fill notifications — which mean you if you have open orders, you can be instantly notified when your orders are filled.
All in all we feel that Coin Stats have worked brilliantly to provide a differentiated product in a competitive market, and ushered in a new standard of portfolio tracker that the others have yet to match.
EDIT: With all the developments being undertaken at Coin Stats, we reached out to them to see if they would be keen to talk to us about the app’s current functionality and future roadmap, you can see this here:
· Top drawer UI and features
· Impressive news updates
· Great exchange integrations including live trading
· Some advanced features can take a while to digest
· Best features available in Pro only

∆ Delta - The best Bitcoin, ICO & cryptocurrency portfolio tracker
Delta is the ultimate Bitcoin & cryptocurrency portfolio tracker app. Keep track of all cryptocoins, including Bitcoin…
Delta is one of the best-known portfolio apps, widely availability on desktop (macOS, Windows and Linux), and iOS/Android mobile.
It modestly describes itself as “the best Bitcoin, ICO and Cryptocurrency tracker. Everywhere.” What is for sure though, is that it tracks a vast array of tokens (3000+). This is no longer unique however.
It also garners consistently high reviews (4.8 out of 5 on Appstore). Exchange support has increased (300+), API connection functionality and a extremely clear interface complete what is a highly compelling package, made even stronger with notifications and watchlist functionality.
· Large range of tokens and exchanges
· Standalone desktop app
· Trading fees tracked
· Multiple portfolio support
· Unlimited exchange API connections and Live Prices limited to Pro version
· Pro version costs 60$–80$

Blockfolio offers complete Bitcoin and Altcoin cryptocurrency management, with easy to use tools to keep track of all…
Blockfolio — the self-styled “world’s most popular Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Portfolio Management App” — is perhaps the best-known of its breed in the marketplace claiming 5 million users.
It’s available for iOS and Android mobile and, with an average review on the App Store of 4.7, it remains highly rated by its users. Those looking for a desktop app though will be disappointed.
Blockfolio’s charting abilities are not particularly exceptional, and while it also boasts support for 300 exchanges, this is becoming the standard now. It does however tracks 8000+ currencies which is an incredible amount.
Among its other key features, Blockfolio’s notification functions are ideal for those looking to receive instant alerts when a specific price level is hit. A news aggregator tab provides a useful way of staying on top of the latest happenings. The new Signal feature, provides instant updates from the development teams of your portfolio teams, although some may find these notifications a little distracting.
· Clear interface
· News aggregator
· Price-based alerts
· No desktop app
· Signal messages can lack substance and become distracting

CryptoCompare.com - Live cryptocurrency prices, trades, volumes, forums, wallets, mining equipment…
We bring you all the latest streaming pricing data in the world of cryptocurrencies. Whether you are just interested in…
Cryptocompare — now available on website, iOS and android form — positions itself as a professional, and data-focused hub suitable for organisations and individuals alike.
There’s no doubt that the interface is very impressive, surfacing a huge amount of data on each asset. With news, articles and forum posts adding to the depth of insight and analysis available, it’s easy to see why many pro-traders rate this as a go-to site.
A timeline function shows the key milestones in a token’s evolution and the influence tab provides some insight into sentiment across social-media platforms. With far too many other features to list here, this is one that’s definitely worth checking-out yourself.
· Vast amount of information available
· 5000 coins and 240,000 trading pairs covered
· Robust, established platform
· On-site advertising can be off-putting

CoinTracking · Bitcoin & Digital Currency Portfolio/Tax Reporting
Full Report for all your Bitcoin and Altcoin trades. Including Profit / Loss calculations, Price Charts, Unrealized…
One for aficionados , the Cointracking.info site currently boasts 400k+ active users, ten years of historical data and coin trends for 6827 coins.
It offers direct exchange transaction imports from 70+ exchanges, plus eight supported wallet imports — including Trezor and Electrum. Pro-traders use the site for its powerful trade-analysis functionality including “Realised/Unrealised gains/losses”, average purchase prices, trading fees, coin trends — not to mention tax reports.
While the level of functionality is ideal for serious and regular traders, free access is limited to a meagre 200 transactions. Anyone wanting to exceed that (for example by uploading their trade history) would need to fork out for an annual licence, coming in at $148 for the Pro version (max 3500 transactions) or $316 for Unlimited access, and these prices have almost doubled since our last review.
Cointracking.info offer an iOS and Android app. The app is easy to use and great for viewing key information on screen, follow trade profitability in real-time and set price alerts. However, it’s very much in the read-only vein, and not currently possible to add coins and trades via the app itself — a function which will be missed by some.
· Outstanding functionality for traders
· Great tax report options
· All coins tracked
· Wide range of exchanges and wallets supported making transaction imports a doddle
· Free option is limited
· Desktop access required as app is limited
· Pro options are not cheap

Automated Crypto Portfolio Tracker | Real Time Portfolio Tracker
Automated Crypto Portfolio Tracker | Real Time Portfolio Tracker | Kryptographe Cryptocurrency Portfolio Manager…
Kryptographe is a new entry straight to number 6 in our top ten — well done the team behind this relateively new app for achieving this.
We were impressed with the friendly and differentiated user interface and some of the features.
This include FIFO-based accounting, a CoinMarketCap Top 100 view, curated news, and portfolio performance growth charts and watchlists.
We also really liked the ability to compare your portfolio’s percentile performance to other user groups using the app for example other users in your country, and the top 25% of investors. Early days, but definitely one to watch!
· UI is easy on the eye
· Enough different features to make it standout
· Available in 13 languages
· The best functions are limited to the £69.99 a year GOLD subscription
· Relatively new so some functionality is still being added and refined

CryptoPanic - If you're going to panic, panic early.
News aggregator platform indicating impact on price and market for traders and cryptocurrency enthusiasts.
Available on iOS and Android, Cryptopanic is pitched as a free news aggregator that also offers portfolio and alert features.
From the off, Cryptopanic’s landscape desktop format and styling makes a refreshing change to many of its more portfolio-focused stable-mates. Stump up $99 for the Pro version and you get instant coin alerts and the ability to customise your news page by adding your own news feeds and switching off default news sources.
While the charting abilities — provided by Coinmarketcap.com — are relatively limited, most users will be coming to Cryptopanic for its ability to display the latest news by coin ticker. This is something it does very, very well indeed.
· Great interface for news
· Pro option allows great customisation and alerts functionality
· Portfolio tracker element lacks functionality compared to other apps

Altpocket | Cryptocurrency Portfolio Tracker
Altpocket is the best portfolio available for showcasing altcoin and cryptocurrency investments. Register now for free…
Altpocket’s USP is their ability to combine an active community and ICO listings together with the functionality of a portfolio tracker. While the iOS and Android apps are yet to launch, the forums and ability to vote on polls will attract those looking for unique views and insight. The UI is enticing, especially for desktop, and once the team work through a properly optimised mobile experience, it’s clear that this app will be up there with the best of them.
· Community functionality
· Auto-imports currently limited to Bittrex, Binance, Coinbase and Poloniex
· Mobile experience could be smoother

Connect your cryptocurrency wallets and exchanges. Track your portfolio performance. Get your crypto taxes done in…
Cointracker is available for both iOS and Android. It tracks more than 2,500 coins, allowing you to connect transactions from 20 exchanges. You can also import Bitcoin, Ethereum / ERC20, Litecoin and Dogecoin wallets.
While charting functionality via the simple app is limited, perhaps the biggest attraction of Cointracker is its automated tax form creation (focused on US tax residents). While these tax plans range from £34 to £780, depending on the number of transactions, clearly this element of the site will be useful to many.
· Support for DeFi lending
· Great tax options
· Simple to use app
· Limited charting & exchange support
· News and alerts functionality

Cryptagon - Crypto Portfolio Tracker 🚀
The most advanced crypto portfolio tracker. Automatic exchange & wallet Imports. +2000 cryptocurrencies & alt coins…
Cryptagon bills itself as the “most advanced crypto portfolio tracker” and it certainly is in ambition if not in execution. The site has a great look when viewed on desktop and mobile alike. While iOS and Android apps remain on the roadmap (along with notification capability), the site promises realised vs. unrealised gains and ROI.
Manual transaction uploads are easy to do on the move and automatic imports are available for Coinbase, GDAX, Bittrex, Poloniex, Binance, KuCoin and Kraken. While Cryptagon promises much, it would seem that the last update to the software (and its twitter account) was last March, so its not clear whether the project roadmap remains active with the missing features expected any time soon.
· Nice UI
· Easy to use portfolio features
· No iOS or Android app as yet
· No alert functionality as yet
