Portfolio Value

This is going to be something that I need to figure out how best to track. I am currently trialling DeBank – although yet to sign up to it, along with CoinGecko and Coinmarketcap free portfolio trackers. Does anything beat excel though. Yet to be determined.

In the interest of time, see below snapshots of the portfolio balance using DeBank as at 1st November 2023:

The above notes a portfolio value of $5,278 USD for the Happy Crypto Wanderer Wallet as at 1st November. If we include the monthly $500 USD contributed in October, this is a total portfolio value of $5778 USD. This represents a total increase in portfolio value of +$278 USD, or a return on investment (ROI) of 5.05% .

It goes without saying nothing on this site or anything associated with Happy Crypto Wanderer is or should be taken as financial advice. This site tracks the hopeful journey of one everyday punter just trying to live out a dream. Come back here every month so you can track the journey. Any and all feedback is much appreciated. If you feel so strongly that you’d like me to stop at any time, a large enough donation to this wallet  so I can reach my goal could make all this disappear.
