Real Time Crypto Tracker
Crypto Currency changes value so frequently that I found that I was constantly checking websites to see if it was a suitable time to swap, buy or sale. This was very distracting. The solution was to build a Crypto Tracker that displays the values at the touch of a button. This neat little project tracks and displays the value of ETH and BTC in real time, in colour on the Pimoroni Display'o'tron, you can learn more about Pimoroni clicking this link.
The good news too is that the program code does not require any verification or signup, it simply uses HTTP requests to pull down JSON data.
Press the button and the display shows the current ETH value (in £). The second button will display BTC (in £) Next time you press either button the display will compare the current value with the previous. If the value has increased the display will turn green, if the value has decreased the display will change to red. Orange denotes that the value is the same as when you last checked.
The display also shows the current date and time for reference.
