Bitcoin Chrome Extension Keeps You Up to Date on Price Fluctuations

Despite its reputation for getting constantly hacked , cryptocurrency like Bitcoin remains a hot commodity. If you've got a Satoshi or two in your wallet, you probably want to stay up to date on its value to make sure you don't lose your shirt if (let's be real, when) it crashes. That's where Bitcoin Tracker comes in.

Bitcoin Tracker, a free Chrome extension from developer Rahul Devaskar, lets you check out Bitcoin's value every time you open a new web page.

After installing the extension, you'll be able to pick your currency of choice and check out the current Bitcoin value. It also shows you its value whenever you open a new tab. There are other Bitcoin price trackers online, but Bitcoin Tracker seems the more polished of the bunch.

Devaskar wrote the extension after growing tired of missing out on buying Bitcoin during its lower price points. "I built this tool to make sure that I don't miss on the next bitcoin price surge," Devaskar wrote. "It has worked beautifully for me." Smart thinking. Buying Bitcoin when the price drops has proven a pretty effective way to make a quick buck in the short term, and sites like WhatIfBitcoin can show you how much money you would have made had you gotten in early.
