Download the Blockfolio app on PC. It is the world’s most popular FREE Bitcoin & cryptocurrency portfolio tracker app, with support for 8,000+ top cryptocurrencies.
What is the Blockfolio PC app?
If you’ve heard a little about people that have managed to make a fair amount of money from crypto trading, you may have decided to try it out for yourself. However, after doing some research and reading cryptocurrency guides, you found out that there are thousands of digital coins out there, trading across hundreds of different exchanges with different exchange rates on each one. Seeing this you’ve surely thought “How can anyone keep track of all this?”. A Google search led you to an app and you are now wondering how to use Blockfolio for PC.
Before explaining how to use Blockfolio for Windows, let’s briefly comment on just what it is. The platform is a crypto portfolio tracker. Portfolio tracking isn’t new or exclusive to crypto trading. Stockbrokers have always monitored their stocks to learn how they behave and make profits from the old “buy low and sell high” axiom. Cryptocurrencies behave in much the same way and that is how crypto portfolio trackers came to be. They are software applications that allow you to monitor the prices of crypto tokens so you can decide when to buy or sell.
Blockfolio for PC allows you to track almost 8,000 cryptocurrencies and blockchain assets, with the latest prices and market data being sourced from 300+ exchanges. The app is available to people from 196 countries, including those from Asia, South America, North America, Europe, Saudi Arabia, and Africa.
The interface of the app has a straightforward design, and it is simple and easy to use. Users have reported that the app is prone to regular crashes and it lacks widget functionality.
The idea is to have these updates pop up on people’s phones in the form of push notifications, which the user can click on and check out in more detail if he so desires. This feature, while quite useful and operational, isn’t that unique in the crypto portfolio tracker market, as there are other projects that have implemented it as well.
Blockfolio is only available for iOS and Android mobile devices. Desktop or browser version is currently unavailable
How it Works
While Blockfolio operates like your typical stat tracking application, their “unique” pitch is the signal feature that allows the teams behind cryptocurrencies to release updates directly to The app users.
Say you have some Bitcoin you are interested in tracking. After finding it in the abovementioned search menu you can pick the “Watch” option which lets you do exactly that, monitor BTC’s price over time. Additionally, you can click on the “Add Transaction” button, which lets you enter any Bitcoin transactions you’ve ever made. You can enter both “Buy” and “Sell” transactions; the app lets you add transaction details like:
- the exchange your BTC was bought/sold on
- the price you paid/received (per coin or in total; will be pulled from the selected exchange automatically if no value is entered manually)
- quantity of BTC that was bought/sold
- date of the transaction
- transaction fee
- any additional notes you feel are needed
