Cryptocurrency Ticker Socket

Get real-time BTC/USD prices over a simple TCP socket connection.

I'll do the polling, so you don't have do!



Use on the command line:

netcat -6 fc56:8313:1e14:1a50:c01:850:a53e:7127 9980

Stick it a status bar somewhere.

Data Source

The ticker data comes from bitcoinaverage.com's API.


The server polls the BitcoinAverage API and makes it available to network clients using broadcat(1).

Does this service still work? I could not receive any price data with the above netcat command (just silence).

Tom: I have updated it now to work using BitcoinAverage's new API
