I've created a crypto portfolio app and display and I'm doing a small crowdfund to opensource it, and to distribute preconfigured img files, so you can easily run one at home.

The intended audience is mainly power-users, and by that I mean, people who know how to program (in Python), know their way in linux, bash and on the commandline... That being said, it should work for beginners as well, but expect at some point that you will probably have to get technical (It's intended to be run on a raspberry pi 3 b, so sooner or later, you will at least need to update the device.).
If you don't want to get your feet wet, don't buy it.

A lot of wallets and portfolio apps have been made, which is great, but I wanted something simple, and portable, - and not on a phone - where I had 100% control, so I wrote it in Python 3 (as I have been doing a lot of development in Python over the last few years). There's a lot of multicoinwallets out there now who somehow claim to be open source, but whose source is nowhere to be found. They USE opensource libraries, but the end product is closed. This will be COMPLETELY open sourced if crowdfund targets are met. It's not a wallet btw, it only tracks price.

The idea is very simple. You keep your entire portfolio as a csv file, and every time you adjust your portfolio, you add a line to the csv with the current date. This way you can easily build a version history of your portfolio.

I'm looking for people who like to play around with the code, optimize it for their own needs (and preferably contribute the enhancements back to the community.)

So expect the basics in UI-friendliness. (the web app is build with Flask and Vue).
If you want to plugin data science tools, if you want to experiment with automating your portfolio at scale, and track your performance with a lot of data, this is the portfolio software for you.
(For example I included some scripts that auto update Livepeer balances from staking wallets.)

Apart from the portfolio software (which is not tied to the device btw, it works on any OS with python installed), this is also a simple display, that shows you the rate of your top 10 coins. (the gadget...)

It probably looks like a ridiculous gadget, and to be honest, I don't mind at all, hence the website name rocketclock.club, referring to the rocket meme.
But in all fairness, I've been working on and off on this project for the last 2 years, but the first prototype has been on my desk for almost 2 years, and it has one very cool feature, that in my view, is priceless.

It kept me calm. Holy crap, has this thing kept me calm throughout the bear market. No endless refreshing on Coinmarketcap, or my phone. Just this tiny device on my desk, with the e-ink refresh every 5 minutes. It's what has enabled me to focus on my work, on developing, and not be distracted by the market all the time. You would maybe think the opposite should've been true, but this has been my experience.

The display is also written in Python, so it could be easily adjusted if you want to include custom data. Market data is pulled from Coingecko, so please beware that its functionality depends for a large amount on this website. All that being said, I haven't experienced much downtime since I started using Coingecko.

Questions below. Thanks!

Oh, and one more thing. I want to show with this small ico, that this tech can, and should be used (way more) by (indie) developers. That's why I will also open source the crowdfund code if this crowdsale is successfull.

I will try to make a simple screencast that shows the portfolio app in the next 10 days.

And if you didn't get 50 eth from donations, how will your project proceed? And why not give a demo of your software? I don't think people will blindly send you money without anything in return. Because if not, this is just a simple way of collecting money.

there are 2 options:

50 ETH in donations : source code released (rocketclock, portfolio); NOT the preconfigured IMG.

100 ETH crowdfund completes: downloads of a preconfigured IMG will be distributed AND source code will be released. (rocketclock, portfolio, crowdfundingsite)

If 100 ETH target is not met before deadline you can withdraw your ETH, as you can read in the smart contract, that is linked on the terms & conditions page. https://rocketclock.club/tc.html

As stated above, I will do a screencast in the next 10 days; the reason this takes time is because all the data I currently have in my portfolio is personal data, and for privacy reasons I'd like to showcase the software with dummy data. (which takes time to reproduce as it's a historical trackrecord...)

Please read the crowdsale contract here: https://etherscan.io/address/0x84d1b1b0d4cce17c7517e67f87c702099bd882b8#code
