The best crypto-currency ticker for the Mac!
View prices of your selected crypto-coins directly from your Mac menu bar.
* Supports displaying multiple coins at once in the menu bar, fully customizable!
* Data is pulled from coincap.io, with almost 500 different coins! Perfect for exotic Altcoin lovers.
* Prices can be displayed in different currencies: USD, EUR, GBP, BTC and more!
* Option to launch at login (that actually works), so you don't have to keep opening the app on restart
* Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Augur (REP), Litecoin (LTC), Zcash (ZEC), Steem, Monero, Dash, and many many more crypto-currencies are fully supported.
Enjoy, and let me know if you have any feedback!
- Fixed issue with non-USD base currencies, which caused all prices to display as '???'*.
* I used to use Yahoo's Currency conversion API, which was abruptly terminated for unknown reasons. The fix was to switch to a different fiat-currency prices API (fixer.io). Hope this one will work better!

Best lightweight crypto tracking app - I just started using the app. It seems to have all the features one could need from a lightweight cryptocurrency tracking app. One downside is that you can not change update frequency and by default, it is 1 second. Which is nice for someone who's looking at the prices all the time but unnecessary for less active users. 1. I would love to be able to change the update interval to 10s or 1m to decrease the amount of network requests and toolbar UI updates which will lower CPU usage (maybe a slider with geometric progression like MacOs has for Energy Saver would be an excellent option). 2. It would also be a nice feature to notify if there is no network connection and the price wasn't able to update. Maybe change the color or add an exclamation sign next to the price. (This option might not be required with 1s update interval because you can quickly notice if the price has stopped updating, but would be much more helpful if update interval was increased to 10s or 1m) P.S. Giving a 5-star review because I believe in great developers and a bad review should be a thing to incentivize improvements and features :)
Good effort and intent just bad exexcution - First off I seriously appreciate the effort and work you've put in but at a certain point you really need to double check and test your work. Even after 3 recent update still continues to get the same issues the are described as fixed in the change log. Some of this stuff is just unacceptable for something that seems rather simple. Something that deals with finances needs to be a bit more stable. So in the end - 5 star idea but 2 star execution. since it's free I'm going to be nice and give you 4 stars total. Hope you get everything sorted. Update - yeah no more patience for this... Installed the 4th(?) update in a month a few days ago. Now I just saw litecoin show up as ~$56 USD, it's never been price anytime recently I double checked and it's actually ~45. So this isn't even a refresh issue, no idea where it's getting the wrong price. I give up this is going in the trash bin. Sorry... good luck

Great crypto tracking app - This is a great lightweight crypto tracking client with plenty customization options in terms of layout and several coins to choose from. I only wish it supported several exchanges as the prices from CoinCap rarely match GDAX/ Coinbase that I personally use. From a UX perspective, given how mainstream coins like BTC, LTC, and ETH have become and the large influx of new (mainstream) users now downloading this app, I would highly encourage the developer to add multiple exchanges or switch entirely to GDAX. Other than that it’s great!
Great but needs a rescue button - Everything about this app is simple and beautiful. However, because of the nature of the menu bar, the ticker will disappear when too many menu items are launched from other apps. Would be great if the app kept an app icon that you could click and see the currencies when they are hidden because of clutter.
GREAT APP! except for 2 things….. - it uses waaay too much CPU…..and it hangs about every 3rd time loaded, so i have to open activity monitor, quit it, then open it again. these 2 things have continualy been a problem no matter how old or new of a mac i use. raise the refresh time to a min of 10 seconds PLEASE bro….the cpu thing is becoming an issue, and please find out why it hangs. this really is th best crypto menubar app out there….please fix theses thngs bro
Great app - I am a type of person who checks the currency every few minutes, but can’t just go to a website every single time when I want to check (especially while I’m working). This is the right app for a person like me.
Not accurate - After using this for a week I’ve noticed it doesn’t come close to accurately displaying real time crypto market prices. The difference can easily be off by $100-$300 USD. App okay if you want a ballpark idea, but it fails for reporting accurate market prices.
