Why?

I recently bought some Dogecoins as I have seen the rise of Cryptocurrencies and I wanted to be a part of it.

So there I was, a novice in the matter checking my phone every five minutes to see how Dogecoin was doing. I'm sure anyone who bought Cryptocurrencies has faced this, and if you have, you know it is very exhausting.

So I wanted an easier way to know if I should buy more or sell the coins I have withouth having to rely on checking the phone 24/7.

I was surprised there was no tool that did what I wanted (or at least I didn't find it) so I created it myself.

How?

I use Telegram a lot, so I researched how to create a Telegram bot!
The code is open-source, you can check it on Github. I am not an expert with Node, so feel free to suggest changes or enhancements!

Note: I hosted it on Heroku with a free plan, so the bot is only operative for 18 hours a day, and in a time that is suitable for me (from 12:00 to 18:00 GMT is offline).

Thank you for reading. Don't forget to follow me on dev.to and Twitter!
