Coinwink Tips & Tricks

In this article, you’ll find the big list of tips & tricks for the Coinwink app. So let’s jump right into it!

Tip 1: A direct link to any coin or a token

Use a custom Coinwink URL to pre-select your coin. To do so, simply add the coin symbol after the slash at the end of the URL.

For example, the following URL https://coinwink.com/eth is a direct link to Ethereum.

For selected cryptocurrencies, we have created unique thumbnails, so that when you share the coin link, you also get an image preview. Above are a few examples.

Tip 2: Use Coinwink in your local currency

This feature is easy to miss because it’s not very prominent.

When creating a new alert, click the USD value below the coins list to switch between currencies. In the portfolio and watchlist, pick currencies from the drop-down list. When you change the currency, it is saved automatically and is set the next time you open the app.

Coinwink supports 8 different fiat currencies:
– USD (American Dollar)
– EUR (Euro)
– AUD (Australian Dollar)
– CAD (Canadian Dollar)
– BRL (Brazilian Real)
– MXN (Mexican Peso)
– JPY (Japanese Yen)
– SGD (Singapore Dollar)

Tip 3: Phone number formatting for SMS alerts

When new Coinwink users enter their phone numbers to receive SMS alerts, it is quite common that the number is entered in the wrong format.

The cell phone number needs to be entered in the international format, which usually starts with the plus sign.

It is also a good idea to send yourself a test alert, to be 100% sure that the number is entered correctly.

For more details, please refer to this Coinwink blog post, which explains in detail how to format phone numbers with examples for different countries.

Tip 4: Manage alerts and view alert logs

Track your activated crypto alerts with Logs in your Alerts Manager.

In case the alert was not delivered, you will see a message with possible reasons.

You can open any activated alert from your logs in a separate window. You can also share its link since the alert page doesn’t reveal any private data. This is an example Bitcoin alert, which was activated on Feb 26, 2021.

Tip 5: Resetting alerts

In your Alerts Manager, click an alert to enable/disable it.

The strike-through alert is disabled (or already activated). Simply click on it to re-enable it. The opposite is also true – by clicking on an active alert, you will disable it.

Tip 6: Updating and resetting percentage alerts

For percentage alerts, you can update the set price by clicking on it (dashed underline). When clicked, the set price updates to the current price point.

To enable/disable the alert itself, simply click on the percentage part of the alert.

Tip 7: Watchlist – Drag & drop coins sorting

Drag & drop to re-order watchlist coins. This feature works on both desktop and mobile devices and supports all major modern browsers.

Tip 8: Watchlist – Hidden extra data

In the watchlist, click the Price column label to switch between Price, Volume, and Market cap.

Tip 9: Portfolio – Return on investment (ROI)

Wondering if your cryptocurrency investments appreciated in value, or are you having a loss? Coinwink ROI calculator will show you this data immediately.

In your Coinwink portfolio, click the ROI icon. Then enter the total amount invested, and the current Profit/Loss will be displayed automatically.

Tip 10: Portfolio – Notes

For many reasons, when investing in cryptocurrencies, it is often a good idea to keep notes. Notes can be related to your long-term goals, short-term targets, there can be saved relevant links or any other information.

With Coinwink, you can take notes for every individual coin in your portfolio. Simply click the note icon and enter the note. Notes are saved automatically.

Tip 11: Portfolio – Multiple coin alerts

Use the Coinwink portfolio alerts feature to track multiple coins at once.

Portfolio alerts are continuous. It means that if the alert was sent, it will be sent again the next time the conditions are met. There is no need to manually re-activate portfolio alerts.

For each individual portfolio coin, the same type of alert is sent once in 24h. For example, if you received an alert that Bitcoin increased by more than 10% in 1h, all the following Bitcoin portfolio alerts for the 1h increase will be ignored for the next 24h. Portfolio alerts are sent every 5 minutes.

You will find the portfolio alerts widget below your Coinwink portfolio. Simply click the little top-right arrow to expand/collapse the widget.

Tip 12: Matrix theme

From your Coinwink account settings, you can switch between Coinwink Classic and Matrix themes.

It is possible to control your Matrix theme’s background intensity and animation.

If you wish, using these controls, you can re-configure your Matrix theme to work as a basic dark theme with a black background.

Tip 13: Use Coinwink as a mobile app

Coinwink is a web-app that is highly optimized for the mobile experience. That’s why it can be used similarly as a native mobile app on both Android and iOS mobile devices.

To add the Coinwink app to your mobile device, simply open coinwink.com in your mobile browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari), click Settings, and then add it to your home screen. You will then be able to use Coinwink similarly as to any other mobile app, launching it by pressing the Coinwink app icon on your mobile device’s home screen.

Tip 14: Get more SMS alerts

If you have enough SMS credits, you can receive more than 100 monthly SMS crypto alerts. To buy additional SMS credits for an ongoing month, visit your Coinwink account settings and click “Get more SMS”.

Tip 15: Receiving crypto alerts even without the internet

Since SMS delivery doesn’t require an internet connection, you can receive SMS alerts anywhere in the world where a simple cellular network is available.

It takes to receive one, to feel its benefits. As one of our users explains:

“What I liked, when I was without the Internet, I got an SMS with BTC alert somewhere on the bus. That was pretty cool. Imagine traveling and getting your shitcoin alerts no matter where you are.”
— Martin, Coinwink User

Tip 16: Receiving alerts like mobile notifications

Coinwink doesn’t support mobile notifications because they inherently have a low notification value, can be annoying, and negatively impact productivity (read more about it here), but still, there is a way how you can setup Coinwink to receive mobile notifications.

Simply download the ProtonMail app on your mobile device, and create a new email account. Use this email account exclusively for Coinwink alerts. Mobile notifications should be enabled for the ProtonMail app.

Every time you receive an email alert to your ProtonMail, you will also get a mobile notification.

Tip 17: Superfast navigation with keyboard shortcuts

On desktop devices, using the default keyboard and mouse controls, you can populate your Coinwink portfolio and watchlist quickly and comfortably.

To speed-up the navigation even more, or to make it more comfortable, in the portfolio and watchlist, use the following keyboard shortcuts to add or remove cryptocurrencies: Enter, Tab, Shift+Tab.

Tip 18: Superfast crypto market research

Click on any coin’s logo, anywhere inside of the Coinwink app, to open that coin’s CoinMarketCap page, where you will find additional data: charts, social news, stats, and other details about that coin.

For example, some particular coin in your portfolio has increased by 30% in 24h. Wondering what’s the reason behind such a price increase? Click the coin logo to open its CMC page, then click on the social tab, and it’s quite likely that you will find your answer inside the Reddit or a Twitter widget on CMC. From there, you can dig deeper to understand more about the recent price spike.
