Whether you are a day trader, swing trader, or just a HODLer of cryptocurrency it can be a nightmare trying to keep track of all your investments. Let me repeat that… complete… damn… nightmare! I am mostly a long term holder of cryptocurrency, with a few swing trades thrown in there for good measure, so even with my very small amount of trades it can be hard to keep track of my profits and losses from my coins. That is why having a good cryptocurrency portfolio management app is crucial for knowing how well your investments are doing and what their real value is.
I put together this list of the top cryptocurrency portfolio management and tracking sites of 2018 so you don't have to dig through all the options!
I Still Suck At Managing My Portfolio
There are a ton of great platforms out there to track your cryptocurrency portfolio and I have tried some of the top options below. Despite all of these being very solid, I STILL suck at keeping track of my investments and it is all MY fault.
Yep, you read that right.
Even with this great offering of software I still have trouble managing my portfolio and visualizing my profit/loss and it is all because I get lazy… I make trades or purchases of ICO's and then just forget or don't bother entering them into these amazing apps. This is my personal warning to myself really… “The ‘Stache NEEDS TO STOP BEING SO LAZY!”
Regardless of my own shortcomings I still think these are the cream of the crop for tracking your portfolio. Without further adieu (and in no particular order), the top crypto management tools!
In my eyes, Altpocket.io is one of the cleanest and well designed portfolio tracking sites out there. I probably use this site the most out of all the trackers because I LOVE the design and layout (reminds me a lot of Exodus, another of my favorites!). Adding coins is super easy and you can even do importing from 2 popular exchanges, Bittrex & Poloniex. Unlike some other sites, you can kind of “post” to the community and there some social features like badges you can earn.
The site is free to sign up and right now they do not have a paid element, but they do state that eventually that will be the case. One of the more unique features I like is they allow you to add a “mining/free” entry which is very helpful in those special use cases that come up often. I would highly recommend Altpocket.io as my personal go-to online resource for portfolio management.
A favorite among traders, CoinTracking.info is by far the most advanced platform with a very robust set of features that you just don't find on most of the other sites and apps. You can import from tons of exchanges through .CSV as well as API and they even let you import from popular wallets like Exodus, Electrum, and Blockchain.info. The interface is very clean, but is also very busy because of all the great features they pack in.
You can generate a ton of reports and they even have a Tax-Report tab that can help you visualize that based on your coins. As I start to trade more I find myself coming back to CoinTracking more and more for their unparalleled features. The site has a free plan, but also offers 2 paid levels that unlock even more features like automatic API and advanced Tax-Report. If you are looking for the complete package, CoinTracking.info is it.
CryptoCompare.com is one of my favorites out of the many options out there. They have a great interface that is really easy to understand, add your coins, and then visualize. CryptoCompare has a lot of other features on it's site as well, so it is not strictly a portfolio manager. In comparison to other offerings the CC portfolio is VERY simple.
It does not allow you to do imports from popular exchanges, which can be a major downside for traders. The features are somewhat limited as well, but I think that is a good thing for someone just starting out in crypto. The service is free to signup, but they will have a paid version that unlocks more features once it is out of Beta. Since I don't trade a lot, I like to keep it simple and CC lets me do just that.
What portfolio management review article would be complete if they didn't include Blockfolio? This is the most popular mobile app out there for tracking your portfolio. The interface is straight forward and pretty easy to use. Not a ton of bells and whistles, but it makes it really easy to visualize your portfolio from you phone. The app is available for both Android and Apple.
I don't use this app that much as I tend to be in front of my desktop most days, but I know many many people that crack out on their Blockfolio app checking it every few minutes. Don't get addicted!
Totle.com – This is a new platform that is in development right now that I am very keen on. It combines portfolio management with trading. Basically you setup your portfolio and can dynamically allocate where the funds you deposited should go without having to maintain multiple wallets or exchange accounts. The Totle platform will do it all for you in the background! This is still in development, but I think it has promise as a next-gen platform for complete portfolio management.
CoinTrackr.com – It doesn't get simpler then CoinTrackr.com! You don't even need to create an account, and it is as simple as it gets. Not much here, but still a very “easy-on-the-eyes” quick solution for visualizing your portfolio. I included it in this list because I just really love the clean design.
To sum it up. If you want to go simple check out Altcoin.io and CryptoCompare. If you need more advanced features, CoinTracking is the way to go. Only got your phone? Check out Blockfolio for one of the better mobile solutions. No matter what site you choose to manage your portfolio, don't be like The ‘Stache on this one and give into pure laziness!
