Amazon Alexa: now with more CryptoBadger!

If you have an Amazon Echo or other Alexa-enabled device, you can now use it to ask CryptoBadger to fetch the latest cryptocurrency prices. Just say “Alexa, enable CryptoBadger skill” to install my simple plugin, and then you can say things like “Alexa, ask CryptoBadger: what’s the current Bitcoin price?” Prices come from Coinbase, and Ethereum and Litecoin are also supported.

This was my Sunday coding project, and the skill isn’t especially unique or robust—I’m a fan of Amazon’s Alexa and simply wanted to see what was involved in creating a skill. If there is interest, I may expand it to support features like historical prices and wallet balances—feel free to leave ideas and/or feedback in the comments below!

If you don’t already have an Echo, I absolutely recommend one—they’re fantastic devices. Amazon currently has them on sale for $80 off the normal price. The smaller (& less expensive) Echo Dot is also great if you plan to use your own speakers.
