Crypto Tracker 🐍📈 – Central Portfolio Tracking
Easy asset tracking – at a glance 🚀
Dashboard to centrally monitor current crypto portfolio developments, by providing an overview of their current value.
Values can either be displayed by their current Overall value (requires adding Purchases) or by their Current value
(indicated by the
V next to the number).
The current course data is polled from CoinMarketCap’s REST API and stored in the database. The API allows you to make
a maximum of 333 points worth of daily requests (~1 request / 5min). Querying multiple cryptos may increase the
amounts of points required per API call, thus requires increasing the time between requests.

Once rolled out the application is reachable via
All relevant parameters are controlled via environment variables that are passed
to the docker-compose stack. For further reference review the

Everything should now be running smoothly. Use a service (
cron will also do) to start
the process automatically at boot. Alternatively you can also add
-d to the
rebuild and run it manually at each startup.
Once running, access the admin panel via
