Bitcoin currency ticker project

by Kyluke McDougall on 20 July 20171 min read

A service which queries the API's of various Bitcoin exchanges around the world.

Busy working on a Bitcoin Price ticker which runs as a service and grabs the current exchange rates from various exchanges.

The project is written in Go. I'm open to / looking for contributors who are interested in reviewing the code, adding support for exchanges etc etc.

Check it out here: kyco.bitcoin.currency.tickers.

I'll be adding exchanges as time goes on myself and improving the code. The idea is mainly to provide an option to self-host (or something like that) your own exchange rate data.

I have this running on my netbook as a background service in Linux. Which means that while I'm working, it keeps a SQLite database up to date with exchange rates etc, which can then be queries locally.
