Imagine being able to listen to music to find out if the price of bitcoin is rising or falling? That’s now possible at Crypto Juke Box, a tool created by Aspyn Palatnick, a software engineer at Meta.
The app allows investors in bitcoin and other crypto-currencies to track their price with sounds without having to look at a screen. Indeed, it emits high or low piano sounds if the value is increasing or decreasing. In this way, it is possible to check its volatility while doing other activities.
Aspyn Palatnick, its founder, revealed that the idea of Crypto Juke Box was born as a solution to his personal life. He explained that he needed to keep track of his investments while working without looking at his phone screen.
Constantly checking the price on the computer or any other device “was a waste of time because I have work and other things to do,” he said. That’s how he came up with the idea of developing a tool to check the value of cryptocurrencies throughout the day via sounds, without the need to look at a screen.
I definitely think that other retail investors can benefit from Crypto Juke Box, just as I know many people who currently watch screens monitoring cryptocurrency prices all day, even though they have other things to do.
Crypto Juke Box plans to add more crypto-currencies and customize the sounds.
The site currently tracks live bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), dogecoin (DOGE), solana (SOL) and loopring (LRC). Its creator explained that as Crypto Juke Box grows and receives more feedback, adding support for more cryptocurrencies and new sounds for different users will be implemented.
I’ve already experimented with playing different sounds when you visit a website with an NFT in the URL, he said. For example, it is possible to listen to music based on Bored Ape Yacht Club.
