Today we're pleased to announce that you can now access your accounts and portfolios using read-only API keys.
API keys are another way to access your account data, without having to go through the process of creating an OAuth2 application – but you can only access the account data for your own account. If you're making an application that accesses other users' data, then using OAuth2 is much better.
Note that if you use e.g. the ?api_key=xxx approach, your request may be logged by third-party cookies or proxies. We recommend setting the X-API-KEY header instead.
Today we have released an update that lets you see the progress of any address or wallet that is currently being updated in the background by our servers. This is particularly useful for slow wallets, such as Binance and Bitfinex, so that you know what's going on in the background.
When an account is being updated by our job servers, the progress will be live updated on the account page:
You will also be able to see a summary of each updating account in your Portfolio Configure page:
This has been released as part of our ongoing commitment to make
Today we have released an update to make it easier to categorise and link together transactions.
We have removed the previous concept of Transaction Links, because we found that this was slowing down CSV and feed imports for large portfolios, as we would have to search over ALL transactions in your portfolio in order to find a link. Links were also directed, which could cause transactions to have transaction link cycles.
We have instead added the ability to create Transaction Groups. You can now add transactions to any number of groups, and the groups can have custom names. For example,
Today we have released a small update that changes how we select deprecated exchanges in calculating composite rates.
Previously, we would select any deprecated exchange for any exchange date – and, since we prefer direct exchange pairs like DOGE/EUR instead of going through DOGE/BTC and BTC/EUR, deprecated exchanges (particularly Vircurex, which is still running, but essentially deprecated) would be selected – causing reports and charts to sometimes be misleading.
With this change, we now only select deprecated exchanges if either (a) the exchange was not deprecated before the date of conversion, or (b) the exchange has been selected as one
If you suspect that one of your balances has been incorrectly valued in another currency, this may be because the automatic conversion is going through one or more exchanges with high volatility.
To identify which exchanges are being used to convert one balance to another, click on your list of Balances:
Select the balance for the currency you'd like to investigate:
The balance report will include a converted value for this currency in each of your reporting currencies. These converted values are used to generate your charts and reports. The tooltip will demonstrate which exchanges were used, and on which
Today we have released a new feature: the ability to secure your account with two-factor authentication (2FA).
Using 2FA, you can use an external device (such as Google Authenticator on your mobile phone) to generate a time-based code, which you will need to supply in order to login, using any of your login methods.
This can vastly improve the security of your account, by ensuring that only people with access to both your login method AND your 2FA device can access your portfolios and accounts.
To enable two-factor authentication on your account, visit Your Profile and select Enable two-factor authentication.
Today we've released a better user interface and design for our historical data pages – our supported currencies, and our supported exchanges (and their exchange pairs). The pages are now cleaner, faster, and easier to read.
As part of this update we've also improved the accessibility of our historical data on mobile, and improved site performance.
Today we have released a new feature available for free to all of our users: the ability to share your portfolio charts with others. This is a read-only view of your charts, without access to the individual accounts or transactions that make up your reports.
In order to share your portfolio, you need to enable portfolio sharing on the portfolio, and then share the public link. Note that anyone with the link will be able to view your portfolio.
We've also added a demo portfolio, using this same functionality, that shows off some of CryptFolio's portfolio reporting features.
Today we've pushed our first Android and iOS apps to our beta testers. If you've got an Android and/or iOS device, and you'd like to gain access to new app features before anyone else, sign up to become a mobile app tester.
If you have found a bug or vulnerability in our software systems or platform which puts either the availability of our systems or the data of our users at risk, we would like to know about it, and we are willing to provide a bounty reward, so that we can improve the security of our systems in a safe and responsible manner.
Today we've released a small improvement allowing paid users to directly request support while logged into cryptfolio.com. Paid users have access to direct email support, eight hours a day, five days a week.
Simply select Get Support when logged into your account, and you'll be taken to a form to send through a support enquiry to our support team:
We also accept paid support requests through email, and through our support site, so you're able to use the platform you're most comfortable with.
Today we have released an update to support extended public keys (xpub) for Bitcoin.
These keys start with "xpub", and allow CryptFolio to track all of your addresses, without you having to export and import them manually into the platform. Many wallets already support exporting your xpub addresses.
However there are some additional privacy and security risks you should be aware of before adding your xpub addresses to CryptFolio. See this article for more information.
To add your xpub addresses to CryptFolio, add a new Bitcoin address to one of your portfolios, using your xpub key as the address:
For ease-of-use, CryptFolio supports tracking xpub (extended public key) addresses, which are long strings starting with "xpub". These keys allow CryptFolio to track all of your addresses, without you having to export and import them manually into the platform.
However, please be aware that providing your third party to any third party (including CryptFolio) can introduce additional risks.
Theoretically, by sharing your extended public key (xpub), the recipient can obtain all of your current – and future – wallet public keys and addresses, and identify and view all of your historical transactions. This can have privacy implications, if you are
