Inspiration

Because of the huge crypto-currency craze, many of my friends are constantly stuck to their mobile screens, watching their fortunes rise and fall.

I wanted to ease their pain and make it easier for them to notice it when the price of bitcoin rises and falls.

What it does

Whenever the price of bitcoin rises, the confetti to fly around more vigorously, and green LEDs light up to indicate it. When the price of bitcoin falls, there will be less action in the bitcoinfetti and red LEDs will light up.

How we built it

We used an ESP32 to consume an API which gives us the price of bitcoin. Then, we linked it up to control the motor and LEDs.

Challenges we ran into

It is our first time working on a hardware project so we didn't really know what to look out for and how to solve the problems that we faced.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We completed the project!!

What we learned

Several hardware-related skills

What's next for Bitcoinfetti
