10 Malentendidos sobre El Web Scraping

1. El web scraping es ilegal
Muchas personas tienen falsas impresiones sobre el web scraping. Es porque hay personas que no respetan el gran trabajo en Internet y usan web scraping herramienta robando el contenido. El web scraping no es ilegal en sí mismo, sin embargo, el problema surge cuando las personas lo usan sin el permiso del propietario del sitio y sin tener en cuenta los Términos de Servicio (Términos de Servicio). Según el informe, el 2% de los ingresos en línea se pueden perder debido al mal uso del contenido a través del raspado web. Aunque el raspado web no tiene una ley clara y términos para abordar su aplicación, está abarcado por las regulaciones legales. Por ejemplo:
2. El web scraping y el web crawling son lo mismo
El web scraping implica la extracción de datos específicos en una página web específica, por ejemplo, extraer datos sobre clientes potenciales de ventas, listados de bienes inmuebles y precios de productos. Por el contrario, el web crawling es lo que hacen los motores de búsqueda. Escanea e indexa todo el sitio web junto con sus enlaces internos. "Crawler" puede navegar por la web sin un objetivo específico.
3. Puedes scrape cualquier sitio web
A menudo que las personas solicitan scraping cosas como direcciones de correo electrónico, publicaciones de Facebook o información de LinkedIn. Según un artículo titulado "¿Es legal el web scraping?" Es importante tener en cuenta las reglas antes de realizar el web scraping:
Una persona puede ser procesada bajo varias leyes. Por ejemplo, uno raspó cierta información confidencial y la vendió a un tercero, ignorando la carta de prohibición enviada por el propietario del sitio. Esta persona puede ser procesada bajo la ley de Trespass a Chattel, Violación de Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Violación de la Ley de Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) and Misappropriation
No significa que no pueda scrape canales de redes sociales como Twitter, Facebook, Instagram y YouTube. Son amigables con los servicios de scraping que siguen las disposiciones del archivo robots.txt. Para Facebook, debe obtener su permiso por escrito antes de realizar el comportamiento de la recopilación automatizada de datos.
4. Necesitas saber cómo codificar
Una herramienta de web scraping (herramienta de extracción de datos) es muy útil para profesionales no tecnológicos como especialistas en marketing, estadísticos, consultores financieros, inversores de bitcoin, investigadores, periodistas, etc. Octoparse lanzó una característica única: web scraping templates que scrapers preformateados que cubren más de 14 categorías en más de 30 sitios web, incluidos Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, eBay, Instagram y más. Todo lo que tiene que hacer es ingresar las palabras clave/URL en el parámetro sin ninguna configuración de tarea compleja. El web scraping con Python lleva mucho tiempo. Por otro lado, una plantilla de web scraping es eficiente y conveniente para capturar los datos que necesita.
5. Puede usar datos scraped para cualquier cosa
Es perfectamente legal si extrae datos de sitios web para consumo público y los utiliza para análisis. Sin embargo, no es legal si scrape información confidencial con fines de lucro. Por ejemplo, scraping información de contacto privada sin permiso y venderla a un tercero para obtener ganancias es ilegal. Además, reempaquetar contenido raspado como propio sin citar la fuente tampoco es ético. Debe seguir de reglas sobre no enviar spam o cualquier uso fraudulento de datos está prohibido de acuerdo con la ley.
6. Un web scraper es versátil
Tal vez ha experimentado sitios web particulares que cambian su diseño o estructura de vez en cuando. No se frustre cuando se encuentre con sitios web que su scraper no puede leer por segunda vez. Hay muchas razones. No se activa necesariamente al identificarte como un bot sospechoso. También puede ser causado por diferentes ubicaciones geográficas o acceso de la máquina. En estos casos, es normal que un web scraper no pueda analizar el sitio web antes de establecer el ajuste.
7. Puedes scraping web a alta velocidad
Es posible que haya visto anuncios de scraper que dicen cuán rápidos son sus scrapers. Suena bien ya que le dicen que pueden recopilar datos en segundos. Sin embargo, si causas daños a la empresa, serás un delincuente y será procesado. Esto se debe a que una solicitud de datos escalables a una velocidad rápida sobrecargará un servidor web, lo que podría provocar un bloqueo del servidor. En este caso, la persona es responsable por el daño bajo la ley de "trespass to chattels" (Dryer y Stockton 2013). Si no está seguro de si el sitio web es scrapable o no, pregúntele al proveedor de servicios de desguace web. Octoparse es un proveedor de servicios de raspado web responsable que coloca la satisfacción de los clientes en primer lugar. Para Octoparse es crucial ayudar a nuestros clientes a resolver el problema y tener éxito.
8. API y Web scraping son lo mismo
API es como un canal para enviar su solicitud de datos a un servidor web y obtener los datos deseados. API devolverá los datos en formato JSON a través del protocolo HTTP. Por ejemplo, Facebook API, Twitter API, y Instagram API. Sin embargo, no significa que pueda obtener los datos que solicite. El web scraping puede visualizar el proceso ya que le permite interactuar con los sitios web. Octoparse tiene plantillas de web scraping. Es aún más conveniente para los profesionales no tecnológicos extraer datos al completar los parámetros con palabras clave/URL.
9. The scraped data only works for our business after being cleaned and analyzed
Many data integration platforms can help visualize and analyze the data. In comparison, it looks like data scraping doesn’t have a direct impact on business decision making. Web scraping indeed extracts raw data of the webpage that needs to be processed to gain insights like sentiment analysis. However, some raw data can be extremely valuable in the hands of gold miners.
9. Los scraped data solo funcionan para nuestro negocio después de ser limpiados y analizados
Muchas plataformas de integración de datos pueden ayudar a visualizar y analizar los datos. En comparación, parece que el scraping de datos no tiene un impacto directo en la toma de decisiones comerciales. De hecho, el web scraping extrae datos sin procesar de la página web que deben procesarse para obtener información como el análisis de sentimientos. Sin embargo, algunos datos en bruto pueden ser extremadamente valiosos en manos de los mineros de oro.
Con la plantilla de web scraping de Octoparse Google Search para buscar un resultado de búsqueda orgánica, puede extraer información, incluidos los títulos y meta descripciones sobre sus competidores para determinar sus estrategias de SEO; Para las industrias minoristas, el web scraping se puede usar para controlar los precios y la distribución de los productos. Por ejemplo, Amazon puede crawl Flipkart y Walmart en el catálogo "Electrónico" para evaluar el rendimiento de los artículos electrónicos.
10. El web scraping solo puede usarse en negocios
El web scraping se usa ampliamente en varios campos además de la generación de leads, el monitoreo de precios, el seguimiento de precios y el análisis de mercado para empresas. Los estudiantes también pueden aprovechar una plantilla de web scraping de Google Académico para realizar investigaciones de tesis. Los agentes inmobiliarios pueden realizar investigaciones de vivienda y predecir el mercado inmobiliario. Podrá encontrar personas influyentes de Youtube o Twitter para promocionar su marca o su propia agregación de noticias que cubra los únicos temas que desea al scraping los medios de comunicación y los RSS feeds.

Not your keys, not your Bitcoin. Nor your social media. Nor your software distribution. Nor your internet. It's time to get back to the roots of our planet's nervous system: personal/public servers creating a network of diverse, free, open-source ideas.

Not your keys, not your Bitcoin.
This applies to nearly everything we use on the internet these days, not just Bitcoin wallets.
Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, YouTube, Netflix, Amazon, have the keys.
Community "mods" and owners have the keys.
Internet service providers have the keys.
National, regional, and local governments have the keys.
Software and hardware companies have the keys.
In this case "the keys" refer to the authority to decide the who, what, where, when, how, and who uses them.
If we don't, individually, own, or have unconditional public access to, the communication tools we need to tell our stories, ask for important information, invent new tools, and just generally be the creative, curious, emotional and intelligent and philosophical animals that we were born to be, then our stories, questions, innovation, and connections are not ours.
A healthy biological organism is a loose network of individual nodes (unique, free-acting cells, for example), connected directly to one another, like the neurons in a brain. There is no hub. No central cell. No central rules for how each cell has to operate. No social norms. No authoritarian rule forcing cells to be something they are not. No predictability or artificial control. Just free flowing information from where it's collected and generated to whomever is connected.
For an internet to function like this, we need everyone to have their own personal websites/servers, ideally in a mesh network, or public/free internet providers, using rss-feed type subscription tools for discussing and sharing things as a group, and maybe bittorrent style up/downloading of software.
There is room for diversity, which means that centralized platforms and servers and such can still exist, but they can't be the only option. Ever again.
At least not if the goal is for the planet to mature into a whole, healthy, functioning organism, rather than this fetal mess of random stuff not yet capable of higher consciousness, or just breathing properly that we have now.

I made a free cryptocurrency app that tracks your coins, ICOs, news, and airdrops for iOS and Android - Coin Beat

Hi Reddit,
I made Coin Beat app and it's available today for iOS and Android.
Why did I build this? I was juggling between 10 apps on my phone to stay on top of my portfolio.
I've been holding bitcoin and altcoins for several years now. I've acquired crypto as gifts, sales, mining, purchases, etc.
The problem that I have is that I use a lot of tools (ie, Reddit, Twitter, RSS feeds, calendars for ICOs/Airdrops, spreadsheets, Slack, Telegram, podcasts, Youtube, etc.) to stay on top and cut through the noise.
I've taken these problems along with feedback I got from some of the paid crypto masterminds to build a solution for this problem. I consolidated these tools into one comprehensive mobile utility app so I don't miss out on opportunities.
The app is now at a point that I'm ready to share it and solicit feedback.
Coin Beat is completely free for both iOS and Android with no feature restriction.
I have a day job so I only have only the weeknights and weekends to work on it, so with limited time, I expect some bugs. However, I'm fixing and adding new features daily.
Let me know what I can improve or any issues you come across.

Shadow Brokers release NSA hacking tools, but were the tools used in a series of bank robberies involving the SWIFT transfer system?

Shadow Brokers Leak Reveals The NSA's Deep Access Into SWIFT Banking Network

In August of 2016, a group calling itself the Shadow Brokers emerged with a treasure trove of purported NSA hacking tools. The group released only a small portion of its take and eventually tried unsuccessfully to auction the good stuff. When no one offered to pay, Shadow Brokers decided to give it away for free.
In an enterprise setting, however, disabling the Windows Firewall and allowing remote desktop connections is quite common. That's where these exploits were designed to work, and the Shadow Brokers data appears to reveal that the NSA used these tools against at least one eyebrow-raising target: a SWIFT bureau in the Middle East.
Following The Money
As part of the Bush administration's War on Terrorism the Terrorist Finance Tracking program was set up. Under TFTP, the U.S. gained the ability to monitor transactions carried out via SWIFT. Why target SWIFT specifically? There are upwards of 11,000 banks in 200 countries that use it, and they exchange around 15 million messages a day. If you need to keep an eye on large amounts of money moving internationally, SWIFT is the key.
•••
A leaked PowerPoint slide appears to confirm that the NSA had successfully set up backdoor monitoring on 9 banks running SWIFT Alliance Access (SAA) servers. At least three others at another SWIFT Bureau were targeted, but they had not been compromised at the time of creation of the PowerPoint presentation in 2013.
A Rundown of the Biggest Cybersecurity Incidents of 2016

Most expensive attacks: Leoni and Bangladesh Bank

Large multinational companies are the prime targets of Business Email Compromise (BEC), which is a type of online scam that usually begins with an attacker compromising a legitimate email account and tricking the company’s financial officer to wire funds to their accounts. Typically the companies that fall victim to these scams deal with foreign suppliers and habitually use wire transfer payments. Victims of BEC scams have increased 270% since the start of 2015, and this year saw one of the largest amounts lost by an enterprise. Read more

Biggest attack vector in finance: SWIFT

The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) is a global transaction messaging network used by banks and other financial entities such as foreign exchanges and investment firms. Unfortunately, this year saw attackers targeting SWIFT clients, compromising and manipulating organizations into sending fraudulent money transfer requests. It’s unclear how many of these attacks were actually successful, but in June, SWIFT sent its clients a letter warning them about the possible dangers. The organization also urged clients to update their software and tighten their cyber defenses.
Shadow Brokers Dump Alleged Windows Exploits and NSA Presentations on Targeting Banks
The post includes a link to a selection of files and folders. One sub-folder called "exploits" includes executable files with apparent codenames such as "Eternalsynergy," "Erraticgopher," and "Emeraldthread."
•••
"This is phenomenal data, it has all the hallmarks of slickly produced internal attack tools," Hacker Fantastic continued. "I am certain that analysis on this data will turn up another 0day [zero day]."
Security architect Kevin Beaumont told Motherboard in a Twitter direct message, "All of the Windows implants are new to VirusTotal [an online file scanning tool], which suggests they've not been seen before."
Targets of NSA hacking operations may also be able to determine whether they were compromised thanks to these new files. Cybersecurity company Symantec recently did something similar but with details of alleged CIA hacking tools released by Wikileaks.
Another section of the [dump]( (https://gist.github.com/misterch0c/08829bc65b208609d455a9f4aeaa2a6c) includes several alleged presentations marked "TOP SECRET" concerning "[JEEPFLEA_MARKET](
)." According to a previous analysis by Electrospaces.net, which searches through previously released government documents including the Snowden files for additional clues, Jeepflea is a hacking project from Tailored Access Operations (TAO), the NSA's elite hacking unit.
NSA's powerful Windows hacking tools leaked online
Shadow Brokers leak NSA documents that may reveal operation aimed at Middle Eastern banks
So here are the dots not being connected...
In 2016 Shadow Brokers placed a trove of NSA hacking tools up for sale last year. On 08.17.16 wired reported that that stolen NSA exploit tools were being held hostage for a Bit Coin pay out. When no one came up with the ransom the Shadow Brokers began selling the apps individually for prices that range from 1 to 1000 Bit Coins.
This is only half the story because prior to the release of the information in August 2016 maybe as far back as several years a series of attacks and robberies through the SWIFT system occurred.
Swift Hack Probe Expands to Up to a Dozen Banks Beyond Bangladesh
That Insane, $81M Bangladesh Bank Heist? Here’s What We Know 05.17.16 - 7:00 am
Once Again, Thieves Enter Swift Financial Network and Steal
New details about a second attack involving Swift — the messaging system used by thousands of banks and companies to move money around the world — are emerging as investigators are still trying to solve the $81 million heist from the central bank of Bangladesh in February. In that theft, the attackers were able to compel the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to move money to accounts in the Philippines.
The second attack involves a commercial bank, which Swift declined to identify. But in a letter Swift plans to share with its users on Friday, the messaging network warned that the two attacks bore numerous similarities and were very likely part of a “wider and highly adaptive campaign targeting banks.”
FOURTH bank hit by SWIFT hackers
Evidence is emerging that the SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecom) attacks began as far back as October 2015 when the Philippines bank was first hit, two months prior to the discovery of the failed attack on Tien Phong Bank in Vietnam.
There are many more articles beyond these, but what it looks like is the Shadow Brokers or some associated individuals pulled off a series of bank heists prior to releasing the applications to the open market. That also open the question of what the NSA was doing with the applications? They could have have been tracking "suspects" but it seems they could have also been moving money for any reason they chose without records being left in the banking system. The possible exploits were only exposed after a series of bank robberies exposed the power of the tools the NSA had developed.
It seems once again crimes have exposed the government's illicit powers concealed by the intelligence community (IC). It is entirely possible that the tools were used legally and only to expose private records of terrorists and spies under FISA warrants, but who knows. The only thing that exposed these exploits was the theft. Kinda makes ya wonder, huh?
The evidence and the different styles of hacking listed in the articles about the bank heists suggests that an initial group stole some NSA hacking tools and pulled off the Bangladesh heist. They may or may not have done Ecuador or the Philippines but it seems that at some point the exploits were sold on the open market, but that does not exclude some clandestine deals with other groups that also have employed the exploits. Once the initial 81 million was stolen they distributed the exploits to other groups who may have also attacked the SWIFT system and other targets to make forensics on nation state level zero day attacks that much more difficult. Several groups attempting independent attacks increased the attack vectors making identification even more difficult. It also appears that the hackers may have targeted banks that had the Trojans installed initially. So why would they go for relatively small scores when they essentially owned the SWIFT system. Could the hackers be attacking networks already infected with the Trojan.
It really makes sense when you think about the banks they hit. The NSA installs the Trojans to "observe" suspected transactions. The hackers obtain the exploits, found the Trojans phoning home and used them to own the infected systems, modified the attack vectors to transfer money. Why not skip the phishing attack when there was already infected banks. Take the path of least resistance that leads back to someone the American government would never admit lead away from the hackers.
Of course that means anyone including the IC could have manipulated transactions, but hey that wouldn't have been a robbery would it. Really the tools could have been used to track transactions, but they could have facilitated the IC surreptitious movement of money to fund operations.
In all reality it was very clever, make a score, don't get greedy, prevent the creation of a M.O. to narrow investigations and identify the perpetrators. But identifying clever when they managed to steal exploits from the NSA and could use the exploits to attack the banking system. Just the fact that they can't be identified means they are pretty slick and the exploits are not for the novice user. There were some skills at work here.
What else was done with the exploits and who are they?
Shadow Brokers Group Releases More Stolen NSA Hacking Tools & Exploits Saturday, April 08, 2017
Besides dumping some NSA's hacking tools back in August 2016, the Shadow Brokers also released an encrypted cache of files containing more NSA's hacking tools and exploits in an auction, asking for 1 Million Bitcoins (around $568 Million). However, after failed auction, the group put up those hacking tools and exploits for direct sale on an underground website, categorizing them into a type — like "exploits," "Trojans," and "implant" — each of which ranged from 1 to 100 Bitcoins (from $780 to $78,000). Now, the Shadow Brokers has finally released password for the encrypted cache of NSA's files, allowing anyone to unlock and download the auction data dump.

News Hodl is a Bitcoin news website

Hi, redditors!
We've officially launched a Bitcoin news site – https://news.hodlhodl.com. This is why you should consider reading us:
  1. We are posting actual news about Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and blockchain from different sources, so there is no need for you to browse many news websites to get good content.
  2. All of our news are short - you don’t need to spend much time going through. We got frustrated ourselves wasting time trying to understand what each news actually meant, so we try to make it so you can quickly grasp the essence by just reading the title. We read each article and only extract important information, period. The source link is also there below each news.
  3. We are non-profit. This means no ads or paid articles.
  4. If you want to receive news instantly we have a Twitter account @hodlhodlnews, Telegram channel @hodlhodlnews and an RSS feed.
If you have any suggestions about how we can improve our website – feel free to leave a comment.
Thank you for your support and keep hodling.

RSS Feeds - CryptoCurrencies News Sites

Hey guys,
today I posted a comment that I have many rss feeds I read daily to analyze the market trends, and some people asked me to share these sources. I thought this might be usefull for somebody, so I am going to do this in this post. Also, share yours if you find that they are missing in my list.
Here is my list
After reading all this - i go to Reddit RSS (https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrency.rss), makes much more sense, than reading reddit first.

Hi, I'm creating a website about NANO. Looking for some advice / suggestions

Quick background: I run a creative digital marketing agency and have a small team of great designers / digital marketers / motion graphic designers / seo specialists, etc. I do a bit of everything but my biggest strength is SEO - I own around 40 crypto currency domain names and managed to pick up a few great nano currency names quite early - one in particular, which is what the website will be hosted on.
 
The majority of the work is done, graphs and charts, live updates, conversion tools, etc have all been implemented but the content is the biggest issue. I have listed most of the exchanges where nano currency can be purchased alongside beginners guides on how to navigate each of the exchanges. (Although, if there is a comprehensive list of all reputable exchanges out there somewhere, it would be a great help as I'm sure I've missed out some). The site includes feeds from Twitter, this subreddit and some news outlets (although if anybody has any suggestions for RSS feeds that could be added, I'd love to hear them!)
 
In terms of content. I want the homepage content to be something that anyone can understand. Almost like bullet points of Nano's most appealing features explained in layman's terms. Possibly a comparison of NANO to the major currencies, especially bitcoin how much faster it is, the lack of any transfer cost, etc and lastly, a simple step-by-step (as few steps as possible though) guide on how to donate to streamers on Twitch as that is going to be a huge draw for many people.
 
I don't want it to seem like I'm just coming to Reddit to get content written up for my website for free so I'm willing to pay (in NANO of course) anyone who has a background in writing about cryptocurrency or can even point me to some posts they have made on this subreddit demonstrating their knowledge of NANO, their writing style and how easily they can explain why NANO is such a good investment. Or if you have any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.
 
The site will act as a promotion of the currency but also a news outlet for it so if you would be interested in being a news editor for the site, send me a PM too.
 
Thanks guys

G20 Asks FATF to Clarify AML Standards for Cryptocurrencies

Financial ministers and central bankers from the G20 states met over the weekend in Argentina to discuss the challenges for the global economy. They reiterated their position that cryptocurrencies do not pose a risk to the financial stability. The officials also called on the Financial Action Task Force to clarify by October how its anti-money laundering standards apply to crypto-assets.

Reiterated: Cryptocurrencies Not a Risk to Stability

The representatives of the G20 member-states said in a communique released after the meetings on July 21-22 that growth remains robust and unemployment is at a decade low. However, they also noted the need to strengthen the dialog and adopt measures to mitigate the risks for economic development like “rising financial vulnerabilities, heightened trade and geopolitical tensions, global imbalances, inequality and structurally weak growth.”
The statement does mention cryptocurrencies, or crypto-assets as they are called, but not among the risks that need to be addressed immediately. “While crypto-assets do not at this point pose a global financial stability risk, we remain vigilant,” the government officials stated. G20 members also issued a warning that sounds familiar – cryptos “raise issues with respect to consumer and investor protection, market integrity, tax evasion, money laundering and terrorist financing.”
Ministers and bankers didn’t miss the chance to point out, not for the first time, that crypto-assets, “lack the key attributes of sovereign money.” And, of course, they didn’t skip another favorite talking point of governments and regulators – “technological innovations, including those underlying crypto-assets, can deliver significant benefits to the financial system and the broader economy,” a confession that’s not really a concession.

G20 Wants AML Crypto Standard in October

The participants in the meeting reiterated their commitments from the G20 summit in March regarding the implementation of the standards on combating money laundering, terrorism financing and proliferation adopted by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). They called on FATF to clarify in October this year how these AML standards apply to crypto-assets. The G20 also welcomed the updates provided by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and the standard setting bodies, adding that it expected them to continue to monitor the potential risks of crypto-assets and assess multilateral responses.
FSB, an international organization that makes recommendations about the global financial system, announced last week a framework to monitor the financial stability implications of crypto-asset markets, as news.Bitcoin.com reported. It has been developed together with the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI), another international body serving as a standard setter for payment, clearing, and settlement arrangements.
The previous meeting of the Group of Twenty, on March 19-20, ended with pretty much the same results, as far as cryptocurrencies are concerned. The forum did not adopt unified crypto-related regulations but urged FATF to apply their standards to crypto-assets. Right before the last summit, the Financial Stability Board dismissed calls from member-states for global crypto rules. FSB’s assessment at the time was identical – crypto-assets do not pose risks to the global financial stability.
The G20 is an international forum of government officials and central bank governors from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, the Republic of South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union – the economies that account for 85% of the gross world product and 80% of the world trade. Many of its members have already called for adopting global crypto regulations.
Do you expect the G20 to eventually propose common rules or guidelines for regulating the crypto space? Share your thoughts on the subject in the comments section below.

I made a free cryptocurrency app that manages and tracks your crypto currencies portfolio cost basis for iOS and Android - Coin Beat

Hi Reddit,
I made Coin Beat app and it's available today for iOS and Android.
Why did I build this? I was juggling between 10 apps on my phone to stay on top of my portfolio.
I've been holding bitcoin and altcoins for several years now. I've acquired crypto as gifts, sales, mining, purchases, etc.
The problem that I have is that I use a lot of tools (ie, Reddit, Twitter, RSS feeds, calendars for ICOs/Airdrops, spreadsheets, Slack, Telegram, podcasts, Youtube, etc.) to stay on top and cut through the noise.
I've taken these problems along with feedback I got from some of the paid crypto masterminds to build a solution for this problem. I consolidated these tools into one comprehensive mobile utility app so I don't miss out on opportunities.
The app is now at a point that I'm ready to share it and solicit feedback.
Coin Beat is completely free for both iOS and Android with no feature restriction.
I have a day job so I only have only the weeknights and weekends to work on it, so with limited time, I expect some bugs. However, I'm fixing and adding new features daily.
Let me know what I can improve or any issues you come across.
