Cryptocurrencies are extremely popular, but 81% of initial coin offerings are fraudulent. We wanted to create an app that can help people avoid being coin-conned.
What it does
How I built it
The analysis is done with Python scripts that scrape the website looking for key elements. Sentiment analysis on the use of language is done with TextBlob. The web app is built with Flask.
Challenges I ran into
We tried to use TensorFlow to perform image analysis on developers listed on the website but found that the quality was compromised. We also attempted to use an Indico API but was unable to access it.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learning to use Flask and Selenium, experimenting with TensorFlow.
What I learned
Building web apps with Python with Flask, web scraping with Selenium
What's next for Coin Watch
