I just lost - well, not lost, just have them in a wallet I can no longer unlock. A day or two ago, I had a lot on my mind, as I had made a mistake while working on the forum. Apparently, I had a passphrase to a wallet, located in a text file that I had not saved. I closed the text file without saving it and subsequently lost the passphrase. (You set the passphrase at the time you install the wallet.) Unfortunately, I had a fair number of coins in it that I had purchased. We aren't talking about a lot of initial investment money here. But, their value had gone up, so I did lose a fair amount of money, if you look at it that way. Now, all I can do is look at the number of coins in a wallet that is worthless to me. The lesson here is, no matter what, ALWAYS immediately save your file, or write down your passphrases on a piece of paper you know you can keep. Valuable lesson I just learned. Never be in a hurry with crytpo. Always double check your passphrase, prior to sending or receiving coins to your wallet. Always make sure you have it copied down in multiple locations. I got lazy and didn't take the time to save the file in one location, much less all of my backup locations.
Not sure if others here have added their coins, amount, cost, and date of transaction, to a live portfolio? Here is the site I use: https://www.cryptocompare.com CryptoCompare allows you to set up multiple portfolios. I have three separate portfolios that I created, for each of my coins. One is for day trades, one is for up to 3 months, and the last is for long term holdings. If you haven't started a portfolio on a live updated site, how do you keep track of the current values of each of your coins?
