Find out the value of cryptocurrencies from the linux terminal

coinmon showing the value of cryptocurrencies

Surely many of you already know or have heard of cryptocurrencies. Legal tender currencies that are made from software, as opposed to others that are created with paper money or metals. The most famous cryptocurrency is bitcoin, the oldest and most popular of all cryptocurrencies, but it is not the only one.

During the last months various virtual currencies or cryptocurrencies have begun to become popular, currencies that all of us can access (taking money into account), with the necessary software, and whose value we can consult from various web pages and even from the terminal of our Gnu / Linux distribution.

How to install Node.js on Linux

This common and necessary task for many can be done thanks to the coinmon app. This application needs to have node.js technology, an easy technology to obtain and install in any Gnu / Linux distribution (if not we already have it installed). In order to install Node.js we have to enter in the terminal of the distribution the following text:

In distributions based on Arch Linux:

sudo pacman -S nodejs npm

In distributions based on Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint:

sudo apt-get install nodejs npm

In distributions based on RHEL, CentOS, we have to write the following:

sudo yum install epel-release
sudo yum install nodejs npm

In distributions based on Fedora:

sudo dnf install nodejs npm

Once we have installed Node.js in our distribution, we have to write the following to install coinmon:

<span data-mce-type="bookmark" style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span>sudo npm install -g coinmon

After this, we have to write "coinmon" in the terminal so that the values ​​of the cryptocurrencies are displayed as well as the other information related to each cryptocurrency. Coinmon offers us the ability to filter this information thanks to the introduction of variables, variables that you can find in the github repository from the development team. As you can see, now there is no excuse to know and know the value of cryptocurrencies, although some, like bitcoin, slip out of hand.

    Hi Joaquin.

    I tell you that I installed the "Node.js" in my Lubuntu 17.10 GNU / Linux with the command corresponding to the Debian installation, but once Node.js is installed in my distro, when I write the command to install coinmon, the following message appears:

    compuserv @ compuserv-To-be-by-OEM: ~ $ sudo npm install -g coinmon
    bash: syntactic error near unexpected element `<'

    I tried to remove the "<" but it tells me the same thing, can you support me in that error?

    Too much fuss. Just put in the terminal: "curl". Greetings!

    In Fedora this happens to me:
    [berchard @ berchard ~] $ sudo npm install -g coinmon
    bash: syntactic error near unexpected element `<'
    [berchard @ berchard ~] $

    Sorry, I already solved with ¨curl¨. I had not read the previous comment

    Cryptocurrencies are a really innovative market but I do not deny that it is a risky market, but if you invest in them wisely and in a diversified way you can obtain a good return, for example a new called TRADER came out that despite the fall in the prices remains at $ 3,33 having its start at $ 0,0001 being this truly incredible, it can also be obtained by mining through this wallet

    Not bad but are there other options? I like to look around and try various options and I can't believe this is the only software of this kind out there for Linux.

    By the way, I find it curious that it draws the "money bags" even though it is supposed to be a text mode application.
