Should I invest in Dogecoin? Should I invest in Ethereum? I started investing in cryptocurrency and it seems like I am blindly throwing my money in. I wish I had a better way of determining which cryptocurrency I should invest in.
What it does
The model attempts to predict the price of a cryptocurrency for the last 60 days. The user can compare the predicted prices to the actual prices to determine if the cryptocurrency is overpriced or underpriced. This would help people make better decisions when buying cryptocurrency since their prices are very volatile.
How we built it
- Python libraries: pandas, mathplotlib, keras
- Google Colab Notebook
Challenges we ran into
The greatest challenge was figuring out what project I wanted to do. Another challenge is the fact that Python libraries allow you to use models that people already built. This makes it much faster to do some machine learning, but it also allows me to not understand the model entirely when I use it, which isn't a good thing.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
I'm proud of Dogecoin for breaking 4 cents. I am proud that it feels less like I am gambling with cryptocurrency.
What we learned
I relearned how to fit data for a model.
What's next for Comparing Cryptocurrencies: Dogecoin vs. Ethereum
Creating an application to house the data and prediction model.
