Tracking your portfolio can be difficult in crypto. Nevertheless, knowing where you stand from a returns standpoint remains one of the most important parts of investing. Knowing who to trust with APIs that link to exchanges containing sensitive information about you is crucial. When looking at which portfolio tracker to use there are a few things we like to look at. These include:
- User interface/User experience – What does it feel like to navigate the app/website?
- Features available – Does this have tracking capabilities that other services do not?
- Security – Has the service ever been hacked?
Using these criteria we narrowed it down to four trackers that we believe users will love. So at long last, here are the Token Metrics’ Best Crypto Portfolio Trackers/ Apps for 2021.
Top Crypto Portfolio Trackers/ Apps for 2021:
Following are the top Crypto portfolio trackers you can start using right now.
Coinstats allows users to track over 400 crypto assets all in one place. They boast over 1.5 million users tracking over $500 billion in value on their site. Coinstats allows users to add transactions manually or via connections with wallets and exchanges.
They allow connection with all major exchanges including Coinbase, Binance, KuCoin, and many more. Wallets can be connected from all major blockchains including Ethereum, Solana, Bitcoin, XRP, DASH, the list goes on. This service also has features that we don’t see other providers offering including analytics such as a number of trades, your most and least profitable coins, and your most-used exchanges. Coinstats has never been hacked.
Coinstats is a primarily paid service, however, the cost is not prohibitive at $4.99 per month for the basic-level plan. They offer tracking via their web app and mobile application which are available on the Apple App Store and Google Play stores. Personally, I use the $4.99 per month Coinstats plan and am very satisfied with the service.
Blockfolio, which was acquired by and rebranded to FTX, is a portfolio tracking app that gives users the capability to make trades through the FTX exchange while keeping tabs on their investments. Users can also purchase NFTs through the FTX NFT marketplace which is centered around NFTs built on Solana.
Prior to fully rebranding the app to FTX, it was named FTX: Blockfolio. According to Sam-Bankman Fried, Founder of FTX, “the rebrand of FTX: Blockfolio to FTX puts the final cap on our acquisition of Blockfolio.” The exchange purchased Blockfolio for $150M in May of 2020.
The ability to purchase crypto is not uncommon in tracking services, however, the ability to purchase NFTs is a feature we have not seen elsewhere. FTX allows users to track investments from their own exchange as well as 12 other crypto exchanges. Unlike Coinstats, users cannot link their crypto wallets to track through the app. Tracking the performance of each individual investment through the FTX app is the best feature according to the author. Blockfolio was once hacked and hackers were able to display phallic images within the app.
From my personal experience with Blockfolio, prior to switching to Coinstats, I found the app to be mostly good for its purpose. But after the acquisition by FTX the service had more consistent bugs and I found my exchange connections would randomly be broken. I would then have to go through the painstaking process of linking multiple APIs back to FTX. FTX gets the job done and has high growth potential in terms of value offered because of the size of the firm behind it, but it may have a ways to go before passing the likes of Coinstats.
Delta is an investment tracking app that allows users to track their equities, crypto, and fiat currency investments. You can even track futures trades using the Delta app. The app was launched by the social investing platform eToro. Connections can be made with broker accounts including E-Trade and Robinhood as well as over 300 crypto exchanges.
Delta’s free plan allows you to connect up to two exchanges. This is a major limitation for crypto users who use a number of exchanges. Delta also supports multiple wallet connections from multiple blockchains. A Delta PRO plan can be purchased for $8.49 per month or $49.99 per year, allowing you to connect an unlimited number of exchanges among other added features. Delta used to have a desktop app, but is now only available on the iOS and Google Play app stores.
With a 4.7 average rating, Delta is very well-liked by its user base. Like FTX, the app is great at tracking individual investments as well as the total portfolio. The ability to track both stocks and crypto is definitely a unique value-add over for traders who have investments in both markets. Delta, like Coinstats, has never been hacked. Delta is a great service, but for crypto investors to get the full value, we recommend purchasing the Delta PRO package.
Because this is the Token Metrics blog, we have to shamelessly plug our new-and-improved portfolio tracking feature from Token Metrics 2.0. Prior to the Token Metrics 2.0 release, TM customers could only track their portfolios by manually adding their investments. With the release of our new platform, users can now track their investments via manual additions and connections to wallets and exchanges.
As of now, customers can connect Binance, Coinbase, Coinbase Pro, Binance US, KuCoin, and Kraken. Viewing your portfolio on Token Metrics allows users to track the performance of their investments and at the same time track their current TM grades so they can have insight as to the future performance of their tokens. Token Metrics holdings tab also allows customers to easily see their gross profit by subtracting their total portfolio balance from the amount they’ve invested. On top of all this, Token Metrics has never been hacked.
Token Metrics Holdings features a handy pie chart allowing users to easily visualize their portfolio allocations. Our product is the most expensive on this list, but portfolio tracking is just one tool we offer. With the purchase of our advanced plan for just $99/month users receive the portfolio tracking features described above, access to our AI-driven indices, ratings, and access to Token Metrics TV+, and more.
