esp8266-bitcoin-ssid-ticker

A Bitcoin SSID ticker for ESP8266's written in Arduino C/C++

Using this software, your ESP8266 will connect to your wifi-network, get the current Bitcoin price (in euro, but can easily be changed to pounds or dollars) and then start an access point named '📈 1 bitcoin = € 1000,-' where 1000 is the current going rate. Then it will wait for a minute, and start over.

settings

There are two settings at the top of the source file, namely:

const char* ssid =     "my ssid";       //This is where you put in your home network's SSID to connect to
const char* password = "my password";   //This is where you put in your home network's password

This information is required to be able to get the current Bitcoin exchange rate.

sources

Some code has been borrowed from @nebman 's btc-ticker-esp8266.

The idea for this project came from @buzztiaan who referenced @shesek's bitcoin-ssid-ticker.
