via Get Bitcoin Value.
Last year I started dabbling in bitcoin. Of course I was immediately cocky as bitcoin value went up 20% as soon as I bought it, then was humbled as bitcoin’s value tumbled down 50%. From boathouse to outhouse. From caviar to ramen noodles. It was brutal.
Anyways, I was often checking the price of bitcoin because it would move up and down quite quickly. I was going to Coinbase to check but as a developer I prefer to do something nerdy to get the value. I’ve taken a few moments to get the value of bitcoin in a few programmatic ways.
I demonstrate how to use the Bitpay Invoice API in concert with the node.js Bitpay client module at github/stevenzeiler/node-bitpay. Then I walk through generating an express server application using yeoman and deploying to Heroku to receive payment notification callbacks from Bitpay.
