BTC Market Ticker
This guide gives a brief overview of the functionality of the BTC Market ticker application available for iOS, https://apple.co/2ENO0Pq
The ticker tab is the main screen of the app. It gives a snapshot of the current market climate for all cryptocurrencies on btcmarkets.net. This includes:
You can re-order the ticker list to keep your favourite coins at the top. Simply tap on the edit button in the top right corner.
Press and hold on a cryptocurrency to enter your holding. This is simply the total amount of coins or tokens you have bought for that particular cryptocurrency. This value is used to calculate your total equity for each cryptocurrency.
Tapping on a cryptocurrency will show the details view. This includes:
It may take a second or two for data to refresh
At the bottom of the ticker tab your return is shown in AUD. This is simply the current value of all the cryptocurrency you currently hold. It is updated in real time according to the fluctuation in prices. You have the option to change this view from return to profit. To do this you need to go to the settings tab and enter the total amount you have invested in cryptocurrency (in AUD). Then just enable the switch for “show return as profit”. This is discussed further in the settings tab section.
The portfolio tab gives you a quick overview of your crypto holdings. Additionally it lets you keep track of each individual transaction you have made on btcmarkets.net. Each time you buy any cryptocurrency, enter the transaction here to track its current value and how much profit you could make. This makes it easy for you to make a decision on when to sell or when to hold.
Tap the plus icon in the top right corner to add a new transaction. You need to enter the following information:
Then hit save and your transaction will be tracked. In the example below I purchased 0.01 bitcoin at $9,600. If I was to sell it now (5/5/18) I would make $32.38 profit. Let’s say I do make the sale, all I have to do now is swipe the transaction record to the left to delete it from the list.
The transaction view also shows sell/hold advice (this can be enable in settings tab) which shows the word ‘sell’ or ‘hold’ based on the current profit and a threshold that you can set.
Even if your total profit on the ticker tab is not ideal, you could still make a good profit on a particular cryptocurrency. For example let’s say bitcoin is having a bad day on the market but litecoin is doing really well. You hold more bitcoin than you do litecoin so your profit on the ticker tab doesn’t look great. If you go over to the portfolio tab you will see that you could actually still make money by selling some of your litecoin and holding on to the bitcoin for now.
The settings tab has several components:
