Esticoin is a little 10-hour web project of mine over the weekend.


Edit: APIs powering this have changed and I am not maintaining this project anymore.

I am not into Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, etc. myself, but I have friends who are. If you are not sure what these are, you can Google bitcoin and learn all about it. Instead of spending hundreds or thousands on a mining rig, I decided to build a little tool to serve those who are willing to spend the dough.

Esticoin is a revenue calculator that displays hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly revenue for mining Bitcoins. It takes into account the current difficulty and exchange rate of Bitcoins along with the user’s hashing rate of their rig.

I kept simplicity in mind when designing this and am quite happy with the result! I plan on adding support for Litecoin and Dogecoin when I get the time, but for now I will put this out there and see what kind of reaction it gets.

There is a lot of JavaScript and CSS tricks going on in this tool. In my rush to complete this (since I have almost no free time in my life right now) I did not keep my JS and CSS as clean as would like, but it gets the job done for now. I hope those who use this will appreciate the small details I put into this to make it look and work how it does.
