The best Black Friday deals for the IOTA community It's time again - as in…
Always up to date thanks to the IOTA price ticker
Who doesn’t know that – you constantly look at your mobile phone to check whether the IOTA price is moving up or down.
The battery is constantly empty, the neck hurts from the permanent look at the mobile phone and the partner is annoyed.
Wouldn’t a small stationary solution be ideal?
Fortunately, we in the community have hard-working inventors who have solved this problem.
With the price sticker developed by the community member “Oxinon” (who is also known from the IOTA Vending Machine project) you can now call up the current IOTA price at any time – and your mobile phone can stay in your pocket.
The great thing about it is that you can easily rebuild the ticker yourself.
All you need is a TTGO TS*, a power supply and 10 minutes time.
The code is available at Github, as well as the corresponding instructions.
In principle the procedure is quite simple:
You install an Arduino IDE (see Github readme), create a project, install a few libraries, copy the code and adjust it a bit (Wlan for example) and you’re done.
But the manual will explain all this to you in detail.
Besides the current price, the IOTA Price Ticker also shows you the current market rank and the percentage price change of the last hour, 24 hours and 7 days.
These values can also be adjusted according to your wishes.
Also take a look at the IOTA Ecosystem page of the ticker and leave a like or a small donation if you like the project.
How it works
Here is a short video showing the ticker live in action:
Of course you can also display other crypto currency courses like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and others with just a few clicks.
Its affordable price (~$15 to $18) and easy configuration make the crypto currency ticker the ideal DIY hardware project for any IOTA enthusiast.
There are different versions of the TTGO TS.
The 1.8″ version was used in this project to ensure the best possible readability and appearance.
