Effective portfolio management in the cryptocurrency space poses several challenges for investors and traders. Some of the key challenges include:
Lack of Real-time Market Data: Cryptocurrency markets are highly volatile, and timely access to real-time market data, including price discovery and trade information, is crucial for making informed investment decisions.
Difficulty in Tracking Transactions: Tracking and monitoring transactions across multiple chains and protocols can be complex and time-consuming. It is challenging for investors to accurately track the movement of their assets and view transaction details in real-time.
Limited Historical Data Analysis: Historical data analysis is essential for understanding asset performance, identifying trends, and making data-driven investment decisions. However, accessing and analyzing comprehensive historical transaction and token transfer data is often challenging.
