Does the Venmo app track crypto prices in real-time?
Yes. The price in the app will update every few seconds to reflect any change to the market value. By default, you will be shown the change in market value over a 24-hour period using a line graph. You can toggle to view one week, one month, six-months, one year, and the entire history of the selected cryptocurrency. When you tap on the timeline graph, you can view more specific values over time.
