Open Source Project- Cryptocur App
The cryptocurrency world has rapidly evolved over the years and cryptocurrency has become one of the primary means of exchange between two or more parties. The Cryptocur App is an android application that is based on the constantly changing cryptocurrency market prices and its exchange rates with the top 20 leading currencies of the world.
About 6 leading cryptocurrencies can be selected for exchange rate comparison, they include Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Steem Backed Dollars (SBD).
Users can create view cards of two currencies (a cryptocurrency and a base or world currency) that are stored in a database and which shows the current exchange rates between them. Clicking on any stored card takes the user to a conversion screen in which they can convert any value from the base currency to its equivalent current market value in the cryptocurrency.

The Cryptocur App is built using the android studio framework. Android studio is the official Integrated Development Environment(IDE) for developing android applications using Java/Kotlin languages for the backend (logic) and XML for the frontend (layouts & UI). The app was developed using Java & XML and is available as an android app only for now.
The app requires strong internet connection for instant loading of exchange rates of the currencies.
I plan to give the power of cryptocurrency selection to the user and extend the number of cryptocurrencies available beyond 6. I plan to do this by implementing a user friendly search view through which users can search for any cryptocurrency of their choice and add it to the app.
I also plan to use a location service to determine the country the app is being used and automatically add the official currency of the country to the app if it was not originally available.
Also with time, it is my intention to develop an iOS version of the application.
