Slope of Hope is unique in that it allows you to customize its home page to your liking. We call this technology Slope Tiles, and whatever Tiles you choose to display and the manner you arrange them will be remembered by the system for your next visit.
Each tile provides a quick, intuitive method of accessing the information you want. Please click here to see Tiles in action, and if you like this style of homepage, please bookmark it in your browser so it can be your starting point whenever you go to Slope.
Besides the fact that most of the Tiles on the Slope home page already have data which is unique to your Slope account, there are two ways you can customize the home page. First, you can choose which tiles should be visible, since you may not necessarily want every single tile to be on your home page. To make these choices, click on the Edit Tiles button at the bottom of the home page, and you will be presented this dialog box in which you can uncheck any items you would prefer not to see:
Second, you can arrange the Tiles by dragging and dropping them into any arrangement you like.
Importantly, there is a checkbox you can select if you would like the Tiles version of the home page to be the default.
That way, any time you go to the Slope home page, you will be automatically routed to your Tiles presentation, no matter what computer you are using. Just check the Use this page as your Slope of Hope homepage checkbox.

This tile actually has two purposes: it can show you what’s going on with the cryptocurrency market, and it can also show you any of your own crypto portfolios that you have entered. In the default mode, CryptoStream, it shows in real-time the top crypto coin prices, net change, and percentage change. You can click on any columns to sort based on its content.
You can also control how many coins are displayed by using the Edit Tiles button. In that dialog box, you can choose the quantity of popular coins you would like shown in this Tile.
You can change modes by clicking the Portfolio Mode button, and subsequently choose any of the portfolios you have saved.
Whatever portfolio you choose will have all its information displayed, thus giving you an instant view into how your crypto positions are doing right from the home page.
