Bitcoin apps for Android
Countless phones and tablets run on Android. No wonder there are literally hundreds of cryptocurrency apps that are all competing for your time and attention. But there are only 24 hours in a day, so let us help you make a selection of the most useful applications for your Android device.
Whether you’re a bitcoin veteran or a crypto newbie, the following apps are essential!
Safety first! You can set up an extra security code for nearly all apps and programs that have a login function. This is called two factor authentication. BLOX (scroll down!) also offers this option, so when you log in with your password, you will also need to enter a code that you receive on your phone. This extra step ensures no one else can log in and secretly go all-in on your least favourite coin.
After some time in crypto land, it might be hard to keep track of all your coins and trading activity. There’s your mobile wallet, BLOX of course, your hardware wallet, and perhaps you also have some funds stored on exchanges. The Blockfolio app combines all this information and shows a clear overview of all the coins you own and their (combined) worth. You can also trace back all your trades: the good, the bad, and the ugly...
“Buy the rumour, sell the news!” But in order to do so, you’ll need to know which one’s which.. Cryptopanic puts articles from all the biggest crypto news outlets in one place, and is constantly updated. When you’re deciding whether to buy or sell, you check the price of course. But it’s just as important to keep up with the news!
Did you know there are over 5,000 kinds of cryptocurrencies? Five. Thousand. Let that sink in for a minute. You can find them all on Coinmarketcap. You might know the website already, but the app is just as easy to use. You can check the price, the trading volume, and the merchants that sell the concerning coin. It also shows a price history and a live feed of the price developments. What more can you ask for?
Into graphs? Make sure to check out TradingView. Here you can find the prices of nearly all tradable assets. Not only bitcoin and other coins, but also gold, oil, currencies, and shares. Go crazy and draw all the patterns you can find, or check out analyses of other traders.
We always say: do your own research. If you wonder what kind of research we’re referring to, analysing charts on TradingView should be a big part of it!
Surprise, BLOX made the list. We heard it’s the coolest, fastest, and easiest app out there! ;) BLOX is free to download for your Android device, and investing is possible for as little as 1 euro. Are you a fan of bitcoin, ether, and litecoin? Or do you prefer EOS, Stellar, or Zcash? No worries, BLOX has got it all.
