Cryptocurrency Alerting

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cryptocurrency Alerting?

We are a flexible alerting platform focused on monitoring the Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency space. In addition to market prices, we track exchange listings, trading volume, wallet transactions, and other on-chain metrics. Our users set highly customizable alerts, which we actively monitor 24/7. We have become a trusted resource for thousands of traders, blockchain developers, businesses and crypto-enthusiasts alike.

How often do you monitor and collect data?

We fully understand that every second counts when it comes to an alerting service. Our system runs 24/7, and we collect data as often as we are allowed. While it varies depending on the exchange and API, we are typically able to collect and alert upon market data within 15 to 25 seconds. Please note that when a new alert is created, it may take up to a minute for our system to begin monitoring it. Blockchain-related data is also obtained in near-realtime, since our Bitcoin and Ethereum nodes are connected directly to the network.

How many alerts can I create?

The number of alerts a user can create depends on their membership plan. The Hobby plan allows up to 3 active alerts at any given time. The Trader plan gives users up to 20, and Pro users have 120. An alert that is disabled or deleted does not contribute to this number. For more information, visit our pricing page.

What is an alert vs a notification?

An alert is something our users create that our system actively monitors (such as a price alert). A notification is the message you receive when that alert condition is triggered/fired.

Do you limit the number of notifications I can receive?

The free plan has a limit on how many notifications you can receive. Paid plans do not limit notifications, with the exception of SMS and Phone calls (view limits), since they are costly for us to send. You will be notified whenever a limit is reached. For more information, visit our pricing page.

Do you support SMS & Phone Call notifications outside the United States?

Yes, we now support SMS & Phone Calls to over 100 different countries! Countries outside the US & Canada are limited to our Pro plan, due to the high cost of sending international SMS & phone calls. View our full list of supported countries.

How do Browser Notifications work?

Browser notifications only work in modern browsers. Once enabled, you will begin to receive alerts on the device that you explicitly allowed browser notifications. Alerts will only be sent to the most recent device that they were enabled for. You do not have to keep this website open in order to receive alerts.

What is a Webhook?

Webhook events allow users to receive an HTTP POST message to a URL of their choice. This allows anyone to programmatically react to the contents of an alert message as soon as it is received. Please note that doing this should be done at your own risk. We cannot provide a guarantee that our data sources are always 100% accurate, despite that being our goal.

For an exhaustive explanation on Webhooks, go here. To get started, check out our guide.

What is the format of your Webhook alert messages?

Visit our Webhook Reference to view an example JSON message for each of our alert types.

Why can't you monitor my wallet if it's hosted on an exchange?

Wallets hosted on your behalf by an exchange (such as Coinbase, Binance, Bittrex, etc) cannot be tracked effectively. These services store your balance in a database, not in a specific wallet created for each user. They may store their coins however they wish behind the scenes. As a rule: If you do not own a private key for your wallet, then you don't really know where your coins are. We will never ask you for your private key.

I'm interested in monitoring a large number of wallet addresses.

We support custom plans for bulk wallet monitoring and address importing. Please get in touch.

I'm having trouble receiving emails from you.

Please allow several minutes for delivery and check your spam folder. You may also need to add contact@mail.cryptocurrencyalerting.com to your contact/approval list. Hotmail, Yahoo and AOL can be particularly strict with this. Please contact us if the issue persists.

Why do some coins/exchanges appear dimmed out in the dropdown menu?

This happens if the corresponding coin and exchange are not valid together. For example, if you try to create a price alert on the Binance exchange, coins not listed on that exchange will appear faded. Selecting a dimmed out coin will update the selected exchange to one that will work with it.

How do exchange listing alerts work?

Our platform automatically detects when a new asset is listed on any of our 30+ supported exchanges. As we continuously monitor market data, we check if any new trading pairs show up on a given exchange. As soon as we detect one, we send out an alert. Additionally, we also detect when Binance and Coinbase Pro make listing announcements, which happens prior to the actual listing itself. Exchanges are always changing how this process works, and we do our best to adapt to it. We cannot detect listings before they are announced. Continue reading about how our exchange listings work.

How do BitMEX price alerts work?

Since BitMEX is a derivative exchange, price alerts are handled a little differently. By default, we monitor the Perpetual Contract if it exists for a given asset (such as XBTUSD for Bitcoin). Otherwise, we monitor the Quarterly Contract.

Why didn’t I receive my alert?

First, make sure that your alert method has been verified. Send yourself a test notification to ensure that you’re able to receive alerts properly. We also have a "cooldown" setting in the options tab when creating an alert — this prevents us from spamming you too frequently. Ensure this is adjusted to a level that you're comfortable with. Add our email address to your contact list. In the case of SMS and Phone calls, make sure that you haven't hit your weekly limit. While we make every effort to deliver notifications as fast and as accurately as possible, we cannot offer strict guarantees about our service. Our platform depends on many third-party services and APIs, which may experience brief outages.

What does the "cooldown" option do?

The cooldown option sets an upper limit on how often a specific alert can get triggered. For example, if you set it to 1 hour, then you will receive at most 1 notification per hour. This prevents us from spamming you with unwanted or redundant notifications.

How are volatility (percentage-based) price alerts calculated?

We compare the highest and the lowest prices from the previous time window and calculate the percentage changes from low to high and from high to low — we then use whichever is bigger. This lets us capture the largest price movement between those two intervals in either direction.

Can I cancel a paid membership at any time?

Yes. To cancel, simply locate the cancel link on your "My Account" screen. Your paid membership will persist for the amount of time you've already paid for.

Do you offer refunds?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds. Please use our free plan to test out the product before you decide to upgrade.

Is my data secure?

Due to the nature of cryptocurrencies, security is a huge priority for us. The best way to keep your data safe is to never ask for it, so we collect as little personal information from our users as possible. We will never ask you for your private key or any other compromising information. All web traffic is encrypted through HTTPS/SSL, and we make every effort to keep our software dependencies up to date. As a best practice, always use a different email address and phone number than ones you may have tied to important accounts.

Do you have an API for developers?

Yes, a REST API is available for our users to automate, extend and combine our platform with other services.
