The 10 Best Cryptocurrency Apps of 2023

For a variety of reasons 2022 was a tough year for the cryptocurrency market and the investors who dabble in it. Not only did prices decline repeatedly as a result of macroeconomic forces, but a number of shocks (e.g. the Terra collapse and FTX bankruptcy) created more negative volatility than most traders and businesses had counted on. More than anything else, these shocks underlined the pressing need for investors to stay ahead of the market, able to read charts and the news in order to gain a sense for where prices may be going next.

For beginners, keeping pace with the market must seem daunting. Fortunately, there’s a wide and growing variety of resources out there for newbies to learn how to make their way within the sometimes scary world of crypto. This article compiles a selection of them in the 10 best cryptocurrency apps of 2023. These range from apps for the latest price data and technical indicators to apps that teach you the basics of cryptocurrency trading. Together, they should provide traders with the best possible launchpad for beating the market.

What are the best crypto apps?

1. Coin Stats: Crypto Tracker

Do you have cryptocurrency holdings spread across multiple exchanges and wallets? Then Coin Stats is probably the app you’ve been waiting for. It’s a portfolio-tracking app that lets you link all of your different exchange and wallet accounts in order to provide a single overview of all your holdings.

It works with Coinbase, Binance, MetaMask and numerous other exchanges and wallets (including DeFi portals), while you can also use it to trade the crypto you hold on supported external platforms. In addition, it also offers alerts and news aggregation, making it arguably the best cryptocurrency app overall.

Available on iOS and Android.

2. CoinGecko

It obviously makes little sense to buy a cryptocurrency without knowing its recent price history, and CoinGecko is one of the best apps for finding out such info.

Much like its website, the CoinGecko app provides a leaderboard of the top cryptocurrencies by market cap, including their movements over the past 24 hours (and more). Individual charts for each crypto can be viewed and tinkered with in order to see its history over various timeframes, while you can also build your own portfolio and keep tabs on how it’s doing.

Other cool features include the ability to track derivatives markets, the ability to set up price alerts, access to the latest cryptocurrency news, and a calculator for converting different assets and estimating gains. It even offers widgets for your home screen, so you can see the latest price info without having to open the app itself.

All in all, it’s very easy to use and can be customized according to each trader’s needs. Highly recommended if you want to stay on top of the latest market developments.

Available for iOS and Android. Also check out CoinMarketCap for an alternative.

3. TradingView

If you’re a serious cryptocurrency trader in need of a wider range of technical indicators, then TradingView really should be one of your first ports of call.

It covers price data for a vast array of assets (not just crypto) over multiple timeframes, yet it also lets users analyze that data in a multitude of ways. You can insert comparisons with other assets, add technical indicators such as moving averages and relative strength indices (and many, many more), and also draw on and annotate charts. Together, such tools help traders gain a keener sense of market timing and opportunities.

On top of this, TradingView has also morphed into a kind of social network for investors in recent years. Its app (and website) lets you post or read blogs on trading, while you can also post livestreams.

Great for intermediate and experienced traders, but also great if you’re a beginner trader looking to advance yourself a little.

Available for iOS and Android.

4. Binance Academy

Binance Academy is the app version of the website of the same name. Run by the world’s largest exchange by volume, Binance, it offers bitesize articles on key themes, assets and areas in the world of cryptocurrency. If you want to know what a cryptocurrency is and does, for example, you can check the app, while it also features more in-depth pieces exploring broader topics.

While the app functions as a kind of glossary or dictionary for crypto, it also includes helpful guidance on cryptocurrency security, and also on trading strategies. Yes, it may be oriented a little towards Binance, but it is surprisingly comprehensive for a free app.

Available on iOS and Android.

5. BitPay

BitPay is a great cryptocurrency app if you actually want to spend some of your bitcoin and ethereum, rather than just watching them rise (or fall) in value. It’s basically a software wallet, yet with the added functionality of letting you use your holdings to buy things from merchants on BitPay’s network.

Not only that, but BitPay now offers a debit card that lets you transfer your crypto into fiat at the point of sale. And you can use the app to buy gift cards/vouchers with a bevy of international brands (Amazon, Uber, Google Play, etc.)

Available for iOS and Android.

6. CryptoPanic

It can’t really be stressed enough just how fast the cryptocurrency market moves. Not only in the sense of price movements, but also in the sense of news, launches, upgrades and other developments. And just as traders will want to react quickly if a cryptocurrency they’re holding tanks, they’ll also want to get advanced notice of something big on the horizon.

Well, CryptoPanic is a cryptocurrency app to help them stay on top of mostly everything in crypto. It’s an aggregator for cryptocurrency-related news sites, so even if you have a favorite website you tend to turn to for the latest news, it will help you fill all the gaps (and no single site can be completely comprehensive). Yes, its interface is a little basic, but it offers various useful features, such as the ability to bookmark and vote up important news.

Available on iOS and Android.

7. Coinbase

There are lots and lots of crypto-exchanges we could have featured in this list. However, its Coinbase and its app that we’re going to include, if only because it consistently rates as the best exchange overall, particularly for beginners and intermediate traders. Its app also happens to be extremely slick, and is certainly one of the most user-friendly around.

As with the desktop-based site, you can trade over 100 cryptocurrencies, including major coins such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana and Avalanche. Charts and information are laid out clearly, so you can quickly get a strong feel for how any given market is doing. On top of this, it offers very responsive customer service and is available in most countries.

Available on iOS and Android.

8. Exodus

As with Coinbase, there are now a wide range of cryptocurrency wallets available to the public, yet its Exodus and its app that recommends itself most strongly. As a wallet, its app will store the private keys for your cryptocurrencies, allowing you to transfer them off exchanges and hold them securely on their respective blockchains.

Exodus is clearly laid out and presented, and supports a large number of cryptocurrencies. When coupled with its built-in exchange features (allowing you to buy or sell crypto within the wallet’s interface) and support for hardware wallets, it’s one of the best app-based software wallets in town.

Available for iOS and Android.

9. Signals – Crypto

While Signals – Crypto offers many of the charts of price data of other apps, what distinguishes it from the crowd is that it also provides automated trading signals. What this means is that it uses an algorithm — and various data — to calculate the best moments to buy or sell any given cryptocurrency. The user then receives signals in their dashboard, enabling them to buy just before a rally or sell just before a crash.

Aside from offering a range of charts and data, signaling is about all it does, but it has received a variety of genuine good reviews on the Google Play and Apple App stores. It is a subscription-based service though, so be prepared to pay around $35 per month.

Available for iOS and Android.

10. Bitcoin Simulator

If you’re a complete beginner to cryptocurrency trading, then Bitcoin Simulator may very well be the app for you. It’s designed as a way of giving complete newcomers a feel for what investing in the market will be like, with the app letting users make dummy trades, with no actual money involved. It tracks real-time market data, so that prices behave exactly as they would for real. There are also a range of challenges included, thereby providing a gamified experience that motivates users to learn more.

Other welcome features include the ability to practice short selling, to view your portfolio history and all-time gains and losses, and also daily and weekly leaderboards. This latter feature really helps you gauge just how you’re developing as a trader, and together with the app’s other features, they provide a hugely comprehensive crash course in cryptocurrency trading.

Available for iOS only, although Android users can check out the similar Crypto Game Trading Simulator.
