Telegram has become the best platform (along with Twitter) for all cryptocurrency lovers as it is a social app full of official groups, trading groups, bots and so on. As someone who uses it daily, today I can write a great article to help you understand how to keep track of the prices of the tokens you have invested in without having to leave Telegram. Blockfolio and Delta are great APPs if you are a holder, but Telegram bots are definitely much faster if you are doing daily trading. Also, bots usually work on all cryptocurrencies, even those not listed on CoinGecko, CoinMarketCap and so on.
3 quick ways to check cryptocurrency prices on Telegram
1) Etherdrop BOT (@EtherDROPS3_bot). A bot that was recommended to me a few weeks ago and that I’m using all the time. Definitely the best of its kind since besides being completely FREE, it’s also super fast. To start it, just open a conversation with the bot at this nickname and start the /menu. From here you will be able to add tokens via their smart contracts, and then choose whether it is an ERC20 (Ethereum) or BEP20 (Binance Smart Chain) token. Finally, you can choose how often you want to receive alerts on price changes of the desired token. By default, EtherDrop will only alert you when the price goes up or down by 5% and on transactions over $100,000. But these settings can easily be changed from the bot’s admin panel. I recommend that you also set a special sound for this conversation with the bot to distinguish Etherdrop alerts from traditional Telegram chats. Let’s hope it stays free for a long time!
2) UniRocket Channels (@UniRocket_Channels). Unlike the bot above, these channels are created manually by a team of super-skilled DEVs who are usually super fast and get bots out within 24-48 hours of launching a token. At the moment there are hundreds of active channels through which you can see every single purchase and sale of a given token, obviously with the price in dollars. To see the list of all available tokens just visit this main chat where all new listings are announced. Obviously, the first option is much better in my opinion, but if the bot stops working then you can switch to this second option. P.s. if a channel does not exist you can contact the UniRocket dev to try to get it added. They are usually very quick if the token in question attracts a lot of interest and has many holders.
3) DEXTools Standard version. Although called standard, this third option is actually a paid option and costs $150 per month. Once you become ‘premium’, DEXTools will help you set up alerts on Telegram for any token on their platform. DEXTools has a bot that you will interact with which will be able to alert you whenever your favourite token drops or rises below a certain price. In addition to Telegram, DEXTools will also send alerts to your desktop browser and via email (if you wish). I’ve been testing the service for a couple of months now and it’s definitely one of the best out there, especially for tokens listed only on Uniswap/PancakeSwap and not on other centralized exchanges.
