What does "read-only" mean?

On CryptFolio, we only support addresses, account and APIs that permit read-only functionality.

Read-only means that with all of the data that you provide to CryptFolio, it should not be possible for anyone to perform any trade, transaction, or withdrawal with any of your currencies - as long as your account providers maintain their security as well.

This also means that in the unlikely case of somebody gaining access to your account, they won't be able to use the information you provide in CryptFolio to make any trade, transaction, or withdrawal.

When you decide to add an API key to your CryptFolio, we will provide instructions on how to set up your API key with tthe bare minimum of functionality necessary for CryptFolio to view your account as read-only.
