What is an Altfolio?
An Altfolio is a portfolio you can create on the CoinCap mobile application. You can download for iOS here and for Google Play here. Altfolios are great for tracking coins you are already invested in, as well as ones that you just want to watch for now!
How to create an Altfolio?
Anyone can create up to three unique Altfolios. Once the app is downloaded, you will open to the main screen with a list of all the assets that CoinCap has. On the top right you will see a menu icon. Click on the second option in the menu saying “My Altfolios”.
On the next screen, you will be able to toggle between your three Altfolios, add/remove coins, see gains and losses, toggle the timeframe you are looking at, and utilize a handful of other features.
When you click “Add A Coin” it will take you back to your opening screen. On this page, you can then click on the coin you want to add or spell the coin’s name in the search field. Once a coin is added, you can change the amount of that coin in the Altfolio by clicking the wallet icon under the coin’s name.
You can rename your Altfolio by going back to the menu in the top right corner of the screen, but this time click on “Settings”. You will then scroll down to the “Altfolio Custom Names” section and you can rename you altfolios as you like. You will also see a few other settings in this section. Take some time to explore and make sure the app is set up to your liking!
