How to get available cash for crypto trading (no leverage/margin)

Hi Guys,

Is there an easy way to get the available cash in my account for trading cryptos when I dont want to use leverage/margin?

If I use Portfolio.Cash I get the total portfolio value because all currency holdings are translated into USD and summed up.

Portfolio.GetBuyingPower I would use for leverage/margin what I dont want to do.

I could work around and calcualte values of the current holdings and substract it from the total portfolio value, but wonder if there is a helper method/property I am missing?
