Cryptonator Launches App for Android


         Cryptonator Launches App for Android

Cryptonator is a cryptocurrency exchange rate calculator and conversion tool. It allows for instant conversion of almost every cryptocurrency into another cryptocurrency, US Dollars, Euros and British Pounds.

To keep up with the rapid pace of innovation in the space, Cryptonator has come up with a free App for Android smartphones and tablets. The new App currently supports over 300 cryptocurrencies. The list includes renowned digital currencies such Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) and Dogecoin (DOGE) as well as successful newcomers like Darkcoin (DRK), which are listed on existing online exchanges.

The App features conversion of all listed cryptocurrencies into other crypto or fiat such as USD, AUR, EUR, HKD and others. The idea is to avoid the inconvenience of having to visit different exchanges to monitor conversion rates. Cryptonator displays cryptocurrency rates across all 35 exchanges. It reveals the world-wide demand for virtual currency and makes the user realize the increase in growth of the Crypto Community.


Another feature called ‘Winner & Losers’ enables quick overview of cryptocurrencies, which exchange rate increased or decreased the most over the last day, week and month. The App updates rates every 30 seconds and calculates the ones with maximum increase or decrease in value.

Further functionality includes a user-friendly Portfolio tool. Although this is not something new, the function holds the capability to automatically track value of all user’s coins. Similar to its iOS release, this function does not ask for a username or a password.

The tool is specifically designed for a growing number of cryptocurrency traders.

Users can use the Portfolio tool via Cryptonator’s website. It is 100% anonymous and secure, as it does not require anyone to enter email or password. Authorization for the “Portfolio” function involves creating only a login ID and a One-Time Password (OTP). The OTP can be generated through one of the many 2FA applications available for both iOS and Android, such as Duo Mobile, Google Authenticator and FreeOTP among others.

The cryptocurrency landscape today is a complex technology for mass adaptation. Any phone based tools that emphasize ease of use are always welcome in the ecosystem. The Cryptonator team aims to go on developing other tools and new functions.

One of these will be a solid solution, which enables safe storage, reliable sending/receiving and exchanging of multiple cryptocurrencies online. Unlike the majority of other online wallets, which support Bitcoin only, Cryptonator is going to support around 10 different cryptocurrencies at the start. The wallet will add new currencies as the project grows.

People will be able to send, receive and easily manage their cryptocurrencies online and on their mobile devices. Moreover, the Cryptonator team claims that it will enable an automatic on-site conversion between different cryptocurrencies at the best rates and with low system commission.

Cryptonator supports Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), and more than 300 other cryptocurrencies. Cryptonator is available online, in AppStore for iPhone/iPad, in the Google Play for all Android devices and as an extension for Chrome browser.

This broad, authoritative declaration is not unexpected, as, to date, the SEC has stated that all digital assets — regardless of whether they function as alt coins or utility tokens — are securities at least initially and, thus, subject to its jurisdiction.
