Inspiration

Our inspiration came from the growing demand of cryptocurrencies worldwide and their increasing adoption into our economy. We realized that newcomers into the crypto space have a tough time finding where they can use their coins.

About CoinQuest

CoinQuest is a GPS navigation app developed by Matias Cevallos and David Pinos. It provides users with the location of over 20 thousand institutions that accept and transact with cryptocurrencies.

How we built it

We used Xcode and Swift to develop the iOS app and implement the Google Maps-API into the system. Furthermore, we obtained the location of the points of interest from the Coinmaps API.

Challenges we ran into

We had trouble connecting the Coinmaps Api to our platform and implementing the street view portion of the Google API.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud to have a product that is close to the product that we initially envisioned.

What we learned

We learned about Swift and about implementing Google-Maps Apis into our platform

What's next for CoinQuest

We would like to implement an AR capability for our platform that allows users to find points of interest with the help of their device's camera.
