Command line Cryptocurrency Portfolio

Project description

cryptop is a lightweight command line based cryptocurrency portfolio. Built on Python 3 and ncurses with simplicity in mind, cryptop updates in realtime.



cryptop requires Python 3 to run, and has only been tested in Python 3.6 so far.

The easiest way to install cryptop is through pip

sudo pip install cryptop

You may need to force pip3 depending on your python install

sudo pip3 install cryptop

cryptop can be installed manually, download the repo and run

sudo python install

pip and can be run with a –user flag if you would prefer not to sudo. Both require setuptools which is included in most python installs and many distros by default


Start from a terminal.


Follow the on screen instructions to add/remove cryptocurrencies from your portfolio.


Cryptop creates two config files in a .cryptop folder in your home directory.

.crypto/config.ini contains theme configuration (text/background colors) and options to change the output currency (default USD), update frequency, number of decimal places to display and maximum width for float values.
