The CoinMarketCap Portfolio lets you store all of the information about your crypto holdings in one place.
What Is the CMC Portfolio?
If you have some crypto investments, you probably bought them from a few sources: perhaps you bought BTC from Coinbase, bought BNB from Binance, and then maybe bought many other coins or tokens from different exchanges.
It is always hard to keep track of all the coins or tokens you have when they are all over the place, or you just simply cannot remember how much you own and where you put them!
Losing control on your crypto investments could potentially lead to an unexpected loss or missing the best timing to sell your cryptocurrencies. Therefore, a good tool to help you tidy up this mess is very important.
CoinMarketCap created the Portfolio tool that allows you to input your crypto investment records, similar to providing you a nice bookkeeping tool to keep all your investments in one place — but better, as we use only CMC data and methodology to help you analyze your investment value, profit and loss!
Although we allow you to input all the transaction details on the portfolio feature, remember that we DO NOT collect any of your funds, so you are not transferring any money to CoinMarketCap. We are just keeping these records and doing analysis for you. Don’t worry, we won’t touch your funds at all!

How to Use the CMC Portfolio
Once you’re logged in, find “Portfolio” on the navigation bar. You can start creating your portfolio by clicking “Create your Portfolio.”
From here, select one coin or token that you want to add to your portfolio first:
Steps for Creating a CMC Portfolio
Step One: Add a “buy” transaction or a “transfer in” transaction
There must be an input of funds when you started your investment. If you bought some crypto as the first step, enter a “buy” transaction from this modal. You can enter the quantity of coins you bought, price per coin when you bought it, date and time of purchasing, fee associated with the transaction and a note to this transaction.
We auto-populate the price as of the timing you entered this modal, but you can still change the price accordingly. The ability to add notes could also be a very strong tool to use, as you can note down which exchange you purchased the crypto from, so in the future you want to sell you’d know where to go to!
You can also input a “transfer in” transaction from the “Transfer” tab, which indicates funds transferred in as gifts from your friend or family, salary from your boss or for any other reasons. Same here, enter the amount you received, and you can also change receiving time, fees, and any notes that would help you remember this transaction!
Just a quick recap of what the three tabs mean:
Step Two: Navigate to the main portfolio page
Now you have completed the first step of creating your own portfolio! You will be led to the Portfolio main page now. Let’s assume we added a buy-in of 0.01 BTC at the price of $51,000 and purchased on Feb. 17, 2021.
Here you can see:
- Your current balance, charts and summary:
The current balance is using your current asset holding amount X current price to calculate. It also shows you the 24h change and 24h change %. Along with the current balance, you can also view a line chart showing the balance value changes over time, and we provide a few timeframes that you could use.
If you also want to check out the composition of your investments across different coins, check the “Allocation” tab on this summary section.
Hint! When you add any new transaction, or edit any existing transaction, both the line chart and allocation chart will need some time to recalculate the historical balance for you. Please bear with us and give our system a little bit of time to work out the new result for you!
You can also check the summary stats of your investment from the “Statistics” tab. Here, we show you the total profit/loss of your crypto assets along with the P&L % (profit and loss percentage) from inception of your purchase. You can also find the best performer and the worst performer amongst your assets and see their individual P&L + P&L %.
Curious about what this icon is doing?
This is the privacy mode in which you can hide the most important values such as total balance or individual asset holdings. When you click again on the icon, it unlocks the privacy mode and shows you all the data available.
Your asset holding list:
On the right hand side of this page, you’ll find a list of all coins/ tokens that you’ve added in this portfolio with some data.
Here, you can see the current price of that asset, 24h price change %, your holding total current value in your currency and in the original currency, and the profit and loss of each asset with the P&L %. There are also some actions you can take. You can add new transactions from the “+” icon on the right, or click on the “...” to view transaction details or remove the whole asset from your portfolio.
By clicking on the coin name, it would bring you to our coin detail page where you could take a good look at the coin details, or by clicking on the other data items also brings you to the transaction detail page.
Want to add a new asset or new transaction record? Simply click on the “+ Add New” button and follow the same steps mentioned above!
Asset transaction details:
Clicking on the line of one asset, e.g. Bitcoin in my case, will bring you to a page showing the transaction details.
Here, you’ll see the balance of Bitcoin based on the current price, 24h % change and the total P&L, or you can see a list of transactions you’ve inputted for Bitcoin. This page also allows you to edit transaction details, or remove any unwanted transactions.
You can also use the privacy mode here by clicking on the eye icon!
Do you get our CoinMarketCap apps on your iOS phone or Android phone too? Good news for you! You can now view exactly the same data on both platforms when you sign in the same account! You can not only monitor and manage your investments from our webpage, you could also do the same from the mobile app! Data will be fully synced across the platform, so don’t worry that you’ll miss anything when you are on the go.
How to Create Multiple Portfolios
You can create multiple portfolios on the CoinMarketCap desktop site and mobile app.
Once you navigate to the portfolio page, you will see a box with your portfolios in it. Click "create portfolio" to add a new portfolio to your account — it's that easy.
Portfolio vs Watchlist
You probably know that we not only provide our Portfolio feature, but also another feature called Watchlist. They sound similar, and you may wonder why we bothered to separate these two features.
The concepts of Portfolio and Watchlist, from CoinMarketCap’s point of view, are totally different. Portfolio helps you to manage and monitor all your invested assets in one place, while Watchlist provides you somewhere to “bookmark” assets that caught your eye.
Enjoy using our Portfolio and enjoy earning more profits on your crypto!
