In some parts of the world (such as India and China), all crypto-currencies are now banned, but in the western countries you can still use mainstream crypto-currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. If you have been keeping Bitcoin wallet and deal in selling or purchase of these currencies then you may want to know the best price you can get for your bitcoins. You can do so by checking online from time to time but this can be very annoying after some time.
If you want to know the real-time price of bitcoins or any other crypto-currencies then you can use one of the portable crypto tickers. For example, if you are interested in the latest bitcoin prices, then you can download the portable bitcoin ticker and launch it. It will display a small ticker on your screen. You can drag it around anywhere on your screen wherever you find it comfortable.
This ticker fetches latest bitcoin price in terms of USD from the internet and updates it regularly after every thirty seconds. If you want to change the update frequency, then you can simply right-click on the ticker and choose an update frequency from every 30 seconds, 60 seconds, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes or 60 minutes. You can also choose to instantly update the value manually.
These tickers are available for all different types of crypto-currencies – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Zcash, Monero, Verge, and so on. In total, you can download these portable crypto tickers for thirty different crypto currencies. All these tickers are available as ZIP archives, extracting which you can get the portable tickers.
Conclusion: If you not a US resident and use a different currency other than USD, then these tickers are not as useful since they display crypto-currency value only in USD. Similarly, if you want to display the value of more than two currencies then you are forced to keep more than one executables running. It would have been better if all the currencies were available from the same program.
