With our price alert feature, you’re able to monitor the price of cryptocurrency. With this feature enabled you will be sent a push notification on your mobile device (or an email if you are not logged in to your Luno mobile app) whenever the Bitcoin price crosses a price level of your choice.

How to set up a cryptocurrency price alert

1. Open the Luno app and sign-in

2. On the Home screen, tap the bell (+) icon next to the current price value of the cryptocurrency you are viewing

3. Choose your preferences to create the alert

4. Tap Create alert

If you opt to enable a once-off alert, it will be deactivated once the alert has been sent to you. Choosing an every time alert will notify you each time the cryptocurrency price crosses the selected level. There is a 5 minute cooldown period for “every time” alerts.

How price alerts work

As an example, you add an alert to notify you, every time, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) is more than ZAR 1000.

  • Price movement 1 will trigger your alert

  • Price movement 2 will NOT trigger your alert. Add another alert to be notified when the price of one Bitcoin is less than 1000 to be notified in this case.

  • Price movement 3 will trigger your alert. Create a once-off alert if you only wish to be notified once.

  • Price movements 4 and 5 will NOT trigger your alert. The price must cross your alert level in the relevant direction to trigger alerts.
