Significant change updates will notify you when the price of a particular asset changes 'significantly'. You can toggle a notification for a token/asset by pressing on the token either in the Following, Markets, or Portfolio, then scrolling across to the "Alerts" Tab and changing the toggle for Significant Price Change to On/Off. For example, click here to open the Alerts tab for BTC.

Once you receive a push notification, you will not receive another one for the same asset for a minimum of 1 hour unless you open the Delta app, then it resets.

Crypto Significant Price Change

Significant price change push notifications for crypto are triggered depending on the percentage of movement and market cap rank.

You can see below what will cause a notification to trigger:

Market Cap Rank

% Required to trigger

1 - 3


4 - 10


11 - 50


51 - 100


101 - 250




Stock Significant Price Change

For stocks, it is done differently than crypto. It is a dynamic threshold which is a more advanced system. It will monitor the last several days of volatility and then give a notification if there is a different spike in rise or decline of the price.

Example: TSLA experiences plus or minus 2-3% swings daily for the last few days, then 3% is not significant. However, if TSLA moves 5%, that would be significant compared to the last few days. On the other hand, if an asset like S&P 500 (an index) which is usually less volatile experiences 0.5 - 1% changes daily, then a 2-3% change is significant for the S&P 500.

PRO TIP: Some devices require Delta to be trusted in the device's settings before push notifications will be shown.

PRO TIP 2: Notifications cannot be cleared in the notifications tab of Delta.

PRO TIP 3: If you have disabled notifications in Delta (go into Delta -> Settings -> Notifications (or click here) -> and toggle "Significant Change Update" off) and you are still receiving notifications, please contact us by going into Settings -> Support (or click here) and provide us with a screenshot of the push notification, a screenshot of the push notification toggle being off and we can look into it for you.

PRO TIP 4: If you are not receiving notifications, please take a look and read this article here.
