Mockbase lets you practice trading Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin with pretend money.
With record interest levels in cryptocurrency, exchanges like Coinbase are challenged with onboarding new users who are curious, skeptic, or simply unfamiliar with buying and selling cryptocurrency.
Mockbase uses real-time price data from Coinbase to simulate buying and selling cryptocurrency using pretend money. Users can hold virtual wallets with pretend dollars, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, and can trade between the currencies.
How we built it
We built an app for iOS and Android on top of React-Native, Firebase, and the Coinbase API. React-Native is used as the framework for the app, Firebase is used for authentication, and the Coinbase API is used for cryptocurrency price data. We also used Bootstrap to build a landing page introducing users to our mobile app. Our app can be found on our GitHub repositories down below.
