Are you looking for the easiest way to get crypto portfolio data? With Moralis’ Token API and our crypto portfolio tracker endpoint, you can seamlessly get any wallet’s token balances – along with metadata, prices, and much more – with a single API call. For a little sneak peek of how this works, check out the example below: 

import fetch from 'node-fetch';

const options = {
  method: 'GET',
  headers: {
    accept: 'application/json',
    'X-API-Key': 'YOUR_API_KEY'
  },
};

fetch('https://deep-index.moralis.io/api/v2.2/wallets/0xcB1C1FdE09f811B294172696404e88E658659905/tokens?chain=eth', options)
  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(response => console.log(response))
  .catch(err => console.error(err));

All you have to do is install the required dependencies, replace YOUR_API_KEY with your Moralis API key, and configure the address parameter to fit your query. Then, once you run the code above, you’ll get a response that looks like this: 

{
   //...

      "verified_contract": true,
      "balance_formatted": "4.553447",
      "usd_price": 1.001818879776249,
      "usd_price_24hr_percent_change": 0.1818879776249283,
      "usd_price_24hr_usd_change": 0.0018221880998897314,
      "usd_value": 4.561729172660522,
      "usd_value_24hr_usd_change": 0.008297236936878599,
      "native_token": false,
      "portfolio_percentage": 100
    },
    //...
  ]
}

The response above is fully enriched with token metadata, prices, price changes over time, and much more for each token. From here, you can simply integrate this data into your projects and build your own crypto portfolio view in a heartbeat! 

But why does the crypto portfolio tracker endpoint matter? And how does it differ from the competition? 

Why the Crypto Portfolio Tracker Endpoint Matters 

The crypto portfolio tracker endpoint clearly highlights the benefits of Moralis’ comprehensive APIs and demonstrates the richness of our API responses. With this single endpoint, you’re able to fetch the balances, along with metadata, prices, and more, from any address. As such, when using Moralis, you don’t have to bother with multiple endpoints and providers! 

Let’s summarize the main benefits of the crypto portfolio tracker endpoint below: 

  • Streamlined Developer Experience: Fetch all the portfolio data you need in a single API call. This results in fewer providers, less programming logic, and an overall more streamlined developer experience. 
  • Improved User Experience: With access to real-time price data, price changes over time, and much more, you can give your users a comprehensive view of their portfolio and optimize the user experience. 
  • Save Time: Eliminate the need for multiple API requests where you need to fetch balances, metadata, and prices separately. This allows you to minimize the development time and effort needed to build a portfolio view. In return, you get more time to focus on other parts of the development process so you can bring more value to your users. 

How Does the Endpoint Compare to the Competition?

With Moralis’ Token Balance endpoint, you get a wallet’s balances – along with metadata, prices, and more for each token – with one single endpoint. To highlight the value of this, let’s compare Moralis to our two main competitors: Alchemy and QuickNode. 

We recently conducted a test using the Web3 APIs from Moralis, Alchemy, and QuickNode to create a portfolio view of Vitalik Buterin’s ERC-20 tokens. In doing so, we compared the number of calls required to complete this task for each provider. Check out the results of our test below:

Graph comparing the Crypto Portfolio API from Moralis vs Alchemy vs QuickNode

As the chart above demonstrates, you only need 18 calls to fetch all the data when working with Moralis. In comparison, the same task demands thousands and thousands of calls when using Alchemy and QuickNode. So, why are we seeing such drastically different results between Moralis and the other providers? 

When using Alchemy and QuickNode, you must first use one endpoint to fetch the wallet’s balance. From there, you need to query another endpoint to get the metadata of each token. Lastly, you must use a third-party API provider like CoinGecko or CoinMarketCap to fetch price data. In comparison, with Moralis, you get all this information from one single endpoint!

npm install moralis @moralisweb3/common-evm-utils

From here, open your ”package.json” file and add ”type”: ”module” to the list: 

add ”type”: ”module” to the list inside your package.json file

You can then create a new ”index.js” file and add the following code: 

import fetch from 'node-fetch';

const options = {
  method: 'GET',
  headers: {
    accept: 'application/json',
    'X-API-Key': 'YOUR_API_KEY'
  },
};

fetch('https://deep-index.moralis.io/api/v2.2/wallets/0xcB1C1FdE09f811B294172696404e88E658659905/tokens?chain=eth', options)
  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(response => console.log(response))
  .catch(err => console.error(err));

Next, add your Moralis API key by replacing YOUR_API_KEY and configure the address and chain parameters to fit your query:

That’s it: you’re now ready to run the code! 

Step 3: Run the Code 

Open a new terminal, cd into the root folder of your project, and run this command: 

node index.js

Once you run the code, you’ll get a response that looks similar to this: 

{
   //...
  "result": [
    {
      "token_address": "0xa0b86991c6218b36c1d19d4a2e9eb0ce3606eb48",
      "symbol": "USDC",
      "name": "USD Coin",
      "logo": "https://cdn.moralis.io/eth/0xa0b86991c6218b36c1d19d4a2e9eb0ce3606eb48.png",
      "thumbnail": "https://cdn.moralis.io/eth/0xa0b86991c6218b36c1d19d4a2e9eb0ce3606eb48_thumb.png",
      "decimals": 6,
      "balance": "4553447",
      "possible_spam": false,
      "verified_contract": true,
      "balance_formatted": "4.553447",
      "usd_price": 1.001818879776249,
      "usd_price_24hr_percent_change": 0.1818879776249283,
      "usd_price_24hr_usd_change": 0.0018221880998897314,
      "usd_value": 4.561729172660522,
      "usd_value_24hr_usd_change": 0.008297236936878599,
      "native_token": false,
      "portfolio_percentage": 100
    },
    //...
  ]
}

That’s it; it doesn’t have to be more challenging to get the token balances, along with prices, metadata, and more, from any wallet when using Moralis’ Token API! 

In addition to the crypto portfolio tracker endpoint, there’s a lot of other data you can query using the Token API. As such, let’s explore three additional endpoints you’ll likely find helpful in your development endeavors: 

  • getWalletTokenTransfers() – Get the transfer history of any wallet: 
const response = await Moralis.EvmApi.token.getWalletTokenTransfers({
  "chain": "0x1",
  "address": "0x1f9090aaE28b8a3dCeaDf281B0F12828e676c326"
});
  • getTokenPrices() – Query the price of any token: 
const response = await Moralis.EvmApi.token.getTokenPrice({
  "chain": "0x1",
  "address": "0x7d1afa7b718fb893db30a3abc0cfc608aacfebb0"
});
  • getTokenMetadata() – Fetch the metadata of any token: 
const response = await Moralis.EvmApi.token.getTokenMetadata({
  "chain": "0x1",
  "addresses": [
    "0xA0b86991c6218b36c1d19D4a2e9Eb0cE3606eB48"

What Can You Build with the Token API? – Use Cases for the Crypto Portfolio Tracker Endpoint 

There are many instances when you, as a developer, need to integrate crypto portfolio data into your projects. As such, let’s explore three prominent use cases for Moralis’ Token API and the crypto portfolio tracker endpoint! 

  • Crypto Tax Tools: Crypto tax tools are specialized software designed to help individuals and businesses calculate and report cryptocurrency-related taxes. Given the challenges associated with the taxation of cryptocurrencies – including their volatility, the complexity of tracking gains and losses over multiple transactions, and the evolving regulatory landscape – these platforms play an essential role in the space. 

    A great example of a crypto tax tool is Koinly. Koinly imports all user transactions, finds the prices at the time of the trades and calculates taxes based on this data. So, when building a platform like this, you need access to token balances, metadata, and prices. 

Crypto Tax tools example with API code
  • Portfolio Trackers: Portfolio trackers are apps that allow users to monitor the performance of their digital assets. Furthermore, they give users an organized way to monitor and manage their fungible tokens and NFTs in one place. 

    An example of a prominent portfolio tracker is Delta – an industry-leading platform for tracking digital assets, including cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and stocks. Delta uses Moralis’ Why Did It Move API to inform users not only when the value of tokens changes but also why the price increases or decreases. 

Portfolio tracker example UI
  • Cryptocurrency Wallets: Cryptocurrency wallets are platforms that allow users to store their digital assets. The best wallets also provide tools for buying, selling, and swapping cryptocurrencies. As such, they give users the ability to fully manage their fungible and non-fungible tokens. 

    A great example of a cryptocurrency wallet provider leveraging Moralis’ Web3 APIs is MetaMask. MetaMask is the industry’s leading cryptocurrency wallet, with millions and millions of active users across the globe.
