A tutorial on how to use Crypto Pro’s features and tools to stay on top of the cryptocurrency market.
As you may already know, Crypto Pro is an all-in-one cryptocurrency tracking app that allows you to easily keep track of the market, monitor your portfolio, set price alerts, and keep up to date with the latest cryptocurrency news.
All your favorite features can be accessed at just the tap of a screen, and Crypto Pro currently tracks well over 5,700 different assets which include cryptocurrencies, fiat currencies, and precious metals such as gold, silver, and palladium. On top of all this, you can also use our app to aggregate all your cryptocurrency balances in one place, and check the performance of each individual asset, 24hr gains or losses, as well as other important stats including your portfolio composition.
There’s also no need to manually update your portfolio and you can make use of our automatic portfolio sync feature to connect to your wallets and exchanges via API, and have your balances automatically updated. We currently support more than 60 exchanges and over 100 cryptocurrency wallet connections. We also incorporate FaceID and TouchID lock features, iCloud or Dropbox syncing, and an Apple Watch app for people always on the move!
Most importantly, you can use Crypto Pro safe in the knowledge that our tracker does not track you back, and we do not ask for or store any personal information. We prioritize the privacy of all our users and do not track your activities inside the app, and we cannot see or gain access to your portfolio size, viewing habits or favorite coins. All your data is encrypted and stored locally on your phone; and deleting the app deletes all your account data, just how we think it should be.
This all leads to greater peace of mind and Crypto Pro is built by crypto people for crypto people, and in order to help you easily navigate our platform, and get to grips with the wide variety of features we have on offer, we’ve put together the following guide that makes using Crypto Pro even more straightforward for users of all experience levels.
To get started you just need to head to the Apple App Store (Android coming soon) and download our app to gain access to our full range of features including price charts and alerts, customizable widgets, and wallet and exchange imports.
How to Use Crypto Pro’s Portfolio Tracker
After downloading and installing the app, you just need to click on it to get started and you immediately gain access to our price tracking features, and along the bottom of the screen you will see the following tabs:
How to Track Cryptocurrency Prices
Tapping on the “Cryptos” tab takes you to our market tracker where you can easily view the current market prices of thousands of cryptocurrencies as well as the total market cap, 24-hour total market volume, and current Bitcoin dominance.
You can also use the search function to quickly locate one out of over 5,000 digital currencies that we currently track.
By tapping on “Mkt ↑” you can select how you would like the coins to be ranked and displayed and you can choose from Price, Name, Percentage Change, Quantity Change, 24h Volume, or Market Cap.
To explore any coin or asset further and gain more information you can simply tap on it and view its performance via a line or candle chart, and track how it has performed over the previous 24 hours all the way to the full duration of its existence! You can also view key metrics such as circulating and max supply and use our wiki entry and calculator to explore the asset even further.
When exploring a particular coin, a number of features can be accessed by tapping on the three dots to the right of the coin’s name. By doing this, you can add a Siri shortcut, add a trade, or add an alert for example.
How to Add an Alert
After tapping on the three dots and selecting “Add Alert”, you will be given the option to select the price (in your preferred fiat currency) you would like to trigger the alert and the alert will sound once the asset moves above or falls below this price.
You then choose which exchange price you want to track, and if you just want to be alerted of the general price of the asset you can opt for Global Average before selecting the sound of the alert and its frequency. Once this is done you can click save to finish setting it up.
How to Track Your Favourite Coins
Each asset has a star icon to the right of its name and you can make it one of your favourites by tapping on this icon.
You can also select your favorite exchange and fiat currency price or again opt to follow the Global Average price.
After choosing your favourite assets, you can easily keep track of them via the “Favorites” tab. You can rotate between the “Favorites” tab and “Cryptos” tab by double-tapping on the icon.

To fine-tune how Crypto Pro App interacts with your exchange APIs, you can head to the “Settings” tab and select “Exchange Import”. From here you can choose how much time passes before the connection is refreshed with the intervals ranging from 15 to 60 minutes.
Once you have set up your portfolios, you can access additional features by tapping on the three dots to the left of the “+” icon, and choose to duplicate, rename, or clear your portfolios as desired, and there is also the option to export your details as a .CSV file.
