Bitdock

Track cryptocurrency price index in the MacOS menu bar

Bitdock is a lightweight OSX menu bar application that tracks the price index of Bitcoin in USD, GBP and EUR. I built it after being tired of constantly heading over to Coinbase or GDAX and I was unable to find an OSX application that was simply executed. I bodged this together in a few hours, so I'll be improving and adding new cryptocurrencies.

    Pros: 

    Very nicely executed, easy to use and a pleasure to look at

    Cons: 

    I'd love to have more coins tracked, at least ETH for starters.

    I've been looking for a coin tracker for awhile, but most that I found for Mac are not very neat. But while this app only support Bitcoin, its executed very well and having more coins in the future will make this a must have to track cryptos.

    Fedotov Maxim has used this product for one week.

I've just added Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Zcash, Ripple, and updated the UI to reflect those changes 😊 Enjoy! Let me know if you have any requests.

Thanks for the hunt @doutatsu . I initially built Bitdock to have a simple and easy indication to the latest value of Bitcoin in my preferred currency, with just a glance. Bitdock uses the Coindesk API to get the BPI every minute which is converted into EUR, USD and GBP. I'll be adding new features and cryptocurrencies, so any recommendations are welcome.

Nice! I've been looking for something like this. Have you thought about the ability to show multiple currencies at once in the menu bar, rather than requiring a click to open & see more than one?

@nneuman Thanks Nick! Yeah that's something that sprung to mind yesterday when I added multiple currencies to the app, I'm glad you thought the same. Do you think there should be a limit to how many currencies you can add to the menu bar? My main concern is that it could fill up quite quickly, one solution could be to round the figures i.e BTC £3.3K ETH £240?
Nick Neuman@nneuman · Product Manager, Grab
@chrisunderdown I could see rounding to no decimals, but I wouldn't round to 3,300 to 3.3k - I think a lot of "day traders" in BTC wouldn't like that. A limit probably makes sense in order to keep bugs down. People could choose 3 to pay attention to in the menu bar and open the app to see the current UI, which would include as many currencies as they want.

@chrisunderdown what source do you use to get the value? an exchange in particular? coinmarketcap?

@ourielohayon I’m using the CryptoCompare API now and by default it seems they use CCAGG https://www.cryptocompare.com/api/
