Node-RED and cryptocurrencies
Node-RED is a perfect tool for rapid development of cryptocurrency applications. There are a wide range of uses, starting with simple access to exchange data (eg prices, trends) right up to developing your own blockchain!
Here are a few tutorials we’ve written to get you started plus some links to other informative sites and pages of people using Node-RED to explore cryptocurrencies.

Other interesting Info
- marciogranzotto has written a wrapper node for Node-RED for the Poloniex exchange. The wrapper is quite basic but is a start point if you want to access that exchange.
- If you are interested in the Cryptocompare API then a nice blog post by remko de knikker discusses how he created and added a set of nodes for cryptocompare to Node-RED. The blog post is quite involved as it discusses creating and publishing nodes, but it also refers to the nodes and some test flows he has published.
- For those interested in the new lightning protocol, a set of nodes for accessing it has been developed by the valerio-vaccaro
