Hi Guys,

Frustrated by the lack of currency converters/calculators that included a wide range of fiat and cryptocurrencies, I decided to build my own! Hopefully it can be useful for you too.

Convert ANY Currency - Okay, not any, but close to! Tongue It includes over 210 cryptocurrencies and 40 fiat currencies

Live Updating Stats - The backend pushes data to the converter as soon as there is a price update, so you know the prices are accurate

Selectable Price Sources - Choose your preferred exchanges to ensure the prices are most accurate for you

Shareable URLs - For example, by using the URL below, you can easily show someone the current value of 9 Golem in Euros


Verifiably Accurate - By clicking on the "Show Math" panel you can view the intermediary calculations to ensure the results you are seeing are correct


Building this was no easy feat for me, so I would love it if you guys could try it out and let me know what you think!

Thanks!

thanks for doing this. i have been looking for something convenient to use like this one. just a small suggestion. can you enlarge the field where you enter the number of coins? it increases size after you have entered several decimals but at the start you could not see clearly all the digits

Are you using a browser that's not Chrome or Firefox?

I found there was an input field resizing issue on Edge and Safari, but it turned out to be complicated to fix and ~90% of my traffic is either Chrome or Firefox so I forgot about it till now Grin Sorry bout that

Hmm I wonder if I can just disable the auto sizing for other browsers...

I'm using Safari but have no complaints about the input field size. It could be better, but it could be worst  Wink

im using chrome. its resizes after you pause typing digits. i think its fine. i just prefer it to be a big field right away so i can see clearly coz the number of digits can be confusing sometimes. you can also put a place where people can add coins. please add XRB and lunyr. thanks again

Ahhh I gotcha. Yeah I originally wanted to make the input side bigger, but you can type into either side so I thought that wouldn't make sense. Maybe I could make the animation quicker for the size you're typing into..

@PokerBetting Didn't realise! Should I ask a mod to move this or something?

Great job! It would be awesome if you could add support for any coin from coinmarketcap.com, which would be very nice because it has more coins than just polo/bittrex (including coins that are just days old, no volume limit), and averages several exchanges. But overall nice as an altcoin preev.

Check out MarkaPool.
Also check out my open source projects.

Easy and useful.

I shared the link in brazilian/portuguese community, for sure a lot of people will use.

Thanks for this.

Thanks! I had to do most of it client side because I've only got a tiny 1 core 2 GB VPS to run the entire site :p

Clientside is better anyways for this kind of websites. OVH sells pretty cheap VPSes if you need a new one  Wink

Convert ANY Currency - Okay, not any, but close to! Tongue It includes over 210 cryptocurrencies and 40 fiat currencies

This is a dream come true. Many thanks!
What's the reason the price you show for Bitcoin is lower than Preev and BitcoinAverage?

Glad you like!

The BTC/USD market price is normally calculated as a weighted average (based on daily volume) between Bitfinex, Bitstamp and BTCe. Because Bitfinex is having banking issues I removed it from the average calculation, causing the average to be much lower than preev which still includes Bitfinex.

Right now BTCe is trading at ~$50 lower than Bitstamp which pulls the average down. BTCe didn't have such a large effect when Bitfinex was used because it has by far the most volume. I'll be adding more exchanges very soon to improve the accuracy.
