Bitcoin Price Extension

Bitcoin Price Extension

Hello everybody,
I have just developed an extension that gives you the bitcoin price.
This extension can be useful for projects that i-ntend to make conversions with the price of bitcoin or other similar projects.


How it works

It is super simple to use (it only contains two blocks).


component_method
We use this block to request to obtain the bitcoin price.


This block is used to obtain the bitcoin price.
With this block we can tell it to put the price in a "label", "button"...


:warning: The bitcoin price is in euros (or at least that in Spain) and I have not included in the extension the symbol €, if you want me to put the bitcoin price + € you will have to do it joining the texts.

This extension was created thanks to the contribution of @KUMARASWAMY_B.G in the post

thank you for your contribution...
please remember to follow the naming conventions

the correct name for GetBTCprice would be GetBtcPrice

Taifun
PS: it would be not too difficult to get the same functionality just by using the web component...
let me suggest you to focus on extensions, which are not doable using available blocks...

NEW VERSION V2

I have created a new version fixing the compilation problem that has been pointed out to me.
Thanks to @Nisarga_Adhikary and @Patryk_F for alerting me.

I have also tried to solve the problems regarding the name that @Taifun indicated to me.

oh no, I've tested it in the app Inventor too and it doesn't work.
I think the problem is because this link contains hCaptcha
https://www.coinbase.com/es/price?query=bitcoin
and the problem is also because you only take bitcoin number from website that may be problematic in some countries, and I've tried it with a VPN and it works. :grin:

Oops, I can make the same function without having to use your extension.

My Blocks :

And with the logic that I make above,
it produces results that are 100% same as the extension you made @Meulencv

Yes, I know to do this, but the extension is more easy to use😁

yeah you are right, but in my opinion you better not make extensions that can be made easily using the available blocks, so if you want to make an extension, it's better if you make an extension that cannot be made with the available blocks or can be made with the available blocks but difficult to do (requires more than 100 or 200 blocks to make it)
