Hello everyone,

I did some coding today, and made a price feed for my desk, which I am quite chuffed with, so I'm going to release it into the world of open source, as without open-source, this project wouldn't have been possible.

Did you know? You can create up to 8 custom characters for these screens to support, so I managed to make a Steem, Hive, Bitcoin and Dogecoin logo.

I have written the ReadMe so you can understand (I hope) how to do this project from scratch, but knowing me the description is probably not the easiest thing to understand, so don't hesitate to ask me questions.

It is powered by the @coingecko api for price changes over the last 24 hours and the current price of each currency. It supports 4 fiat currencies by default (US Dollars, Euros, British Pounds and Japaneese Yen)

To represent Hive + Steem Dollars a Dollar symbol is put next to the original logo, and then a space and your currency symbol, so you can distinguish the price from the symbol.

The last 2 currencies are Bitcoin (duh) and Best Meme-Coin (Dogecoin), except it is measured in kDoge, because you wouldn't be able to see the price difference in a single dogecoin for a long time with 3 decimal places.

I hope you like it,
Have a great day,
