Use Aletheia’s “CryptoQuote” Action to Request a Crypto Quote
Provide the symbol of cryptocurrency to the CryptoQuote action. In this example we are providing it via a string value, but you can also reference the content of a text input so, for example, a user would be able to dynamically change it.
Examples of symbols you can request:
- BTC — Bitcoin
- ETH — Ethereum
- DOGE — Dogecoin
- LTC — Litecoin
- SHIB — Shiba Inu Coin
The above list is in no way exhaustive. There are plenty more you can request data for!
Reference the Quote Properties in the App/Flow
The formula above saved the quote data to an object variable named “MyCryptoQuote”. To reference the data in the quote elsewhere in the app, do it as such:
Please note that the price of every cryptocurrency is in US Dollars
Use all of the Data!
Aletheia provides us with plenty of contextual data about the cryptocurrency we are requesting data for. Access the price, today’s high and low, the year high and low, today’s volume, and more.
