Bitcoin Price Notifier

Bitcoin :

Bitcoin is a digital currency created in January 2009 following the housing market crash. It follows the ideas set out in a whitepaper by the mysterious and pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto. The identity of the person or persons who created the technology is still a mystery. Bitcoin offers the promise of lower transaction fees than traditional online payment mechanisms and is operated by a decentralized authority, unlike government-issued currencies.

There are no physical bitcoins, only balances kept on a public ledger than everyone has transparent access to, that – along with all Bitcoin transactions – is verified by a massive amount of computing power. Bitcoins are not issued or backed by any banks or governments, nor are individual bitcoins valuable as a commodity. Despite it not being legal tender, Bitcoin charts high on popularity, and has triggered the launch of hundreds of other virtual currencies collectively referred to as Altcoins.

IFTTT

IFTTT is both a website and a mobile app. The free service launched in 2010 with the following slogan: "Put the Internet to work for you". It's changed a lot in recent years, however. Currently, with IFTTT, you can connect all your "services" together so that tasks are automatically completed. There are numerous ways you can connect all your services - and the resulting combinations are called "Applets".

Applets essentially automate your daily workflow, whether it's managing smart home devices or apps and websites. So, for instance, if you own the Philips Hue smart lighting system, you could use IFTTT to automatically turn on a light every time you're tagged in a Facebook photo. In another example, you could use IFTTT to automatically email readers when they comment on your WordPress blog.

Bitcoin Notifier

As we all know, the Bitcoin price is a fickle thing. You never really know where it’s going to be at the end of the day. So, instead of constantly checking various sites for the latest updates, let’s make a Python app that runs as a command-line tool to do the work for you.

Although many alternatives exist such as Firebase/Custom Web Sockets, we recommend using the popular automation website IFTTT. IFTTT (“if this, then that”) is a web service that bridges the gap between different apps and devices.
