Virtual insanity? Why the metaverse might be closer than you think

When I was a child, I always wanted to live in my dreams,” says 22-year-old crypto artist Moyosore Briggs. “When I got my phone, it was like, ‘OK, this is the first step.’” She has always been “strongly aware”, she says, that one day we’d be able to escape the everyday drudgery and exist in our imaginations – she just didn’t know it was going to be possible in her lifetime. But now that’s changing fast. “I’d say I’m about 10 per cent there already,” she continues, of how much she already operates in the virtual space. “But in 2050, I will be able to live in…

Obtaining historical and real-time crypto data with very simple web programming

While learning about cryptocurrencies, I desperately needed data that I could manipulate myself to do my own plots and analyses. Here I show you how to easily get real-time and historical crypto data right in your web browser with minimal programming skills. Source code, links, and some basic plots and analyses included.

Disclaimer: You will not find any financial advice here and I’m no expert in cryptocurrency, cryptoart, NFTs, their trading, etc. I only give away free HTML+JavaScript code to get data through API calls to CryptoCompare.com; and I display some plots derived from that data with some of my own subjective opinions.
