How to Verify Your Cryptocurrency Balance
To check your cryptocurrency balance is an important thing to do. And for most cryptocurrencies, it’s very easy to check the amount that is sitting in your wallet.
However, in order to keep your wallet secure, you must make sure that when you verify your cryptocurrency balance, you ONLY use the public address from your Portfolio. When viewing your Portfolio, the public address for each currency is the string of characters shown after “Your address” under that currency heading.
NEVER put your private key into an online form. Your private key is the code that lets people gain access to your money. NEVER put this into a website.
If you have just received your Portfolio, bear in mind that it can take several hours for your funds to appear.
