Story

This project will show you how to setup a live crypto currency tracker on an OLED display using a Raspberry Pi. I setup this tracker as an alternative to a specs display used in a custom Raspberry Pi case. I host a node for the Ravencoin network on my Pi, and I liked the idea of it also displaying current crypto prices. You can use the code for a variety of different OLED displays and this will work with any model Pi. This project uses python code to request data from a crypto currency price tracking API and display that data onto the OLED screen.


Code

Raspberry Pi Crypto Display

Line 9 is for your OLED model as supported by our Luma driver. Line 12(cryptos = ["eth", "rvn", "xmr"]) is what you will want to edit to change which crypto prices you want displayed. Lines 33-35 is where you would want to edit the spacing of the words on your display Line 36 will change the amount of time before changing the current displayed crypto.
