Yen: The Magic (and Mystery) of Exchange Rates

When working with exchange rates you have to do a lot of technical “magic” to ensure that you’re properly receiving not only the right data but also presenting it in a way that’s useful.

Our simple widget is the “base model” of what we’ve designed, as a concept, so far… but it could be so much more:

The ups and downs of the cryptocurrency price is one thing to observe… and an entirely different thing to program and execute against. Making sure that you’re “buying the dips” and selling profit (when in wisdom) are the obvious use-cases… but there could be so much more.

An aside… working with a variety of different exchange rate data and currencies is fairly difficult. It’s a good technical challenge that John and I are enjoying a lot.

That shouldn’t be strange.
