financial-asset-comparison-tool - R Shiny app to compare the historical performance of crypto-assets and equities

  •    R

Welcome! The Financial Asset Comparison Tool is an R Shiny App that facilitates the comparison of a myriad of assets--both traditional and crypto--across time. The idea for this tool came to me when I was trading crypto-currencies actively, and spending a decent amount of time in investor telegram chats and forums. A common argument I would see was over what asset one should have invested in a short while ago, but it was clear that most such discussions were fueled by emotion--primarily "FOMO"--as opposed to testable metrics. This isn't just a popular type of discussion in the crypto investing space; in fact, it may be even more common in traditional finance. I wanted to create a tool that would be able to settle all such asset performance comparison questions, regardless of whether the question was about traditional assets such as equities, crypto-assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum, or some combination of both. The tools made available via this app allow for analysis of varying degrees of complexity, as can be seen in the visualization below. This scaling of metric complexity is also intuitively integrated into the UI design of the app itself, as illustrated by the screenshot below.

GitHub doesn't officially have an API endpoint for "which of the people I follow starred something?" but I wanted a way to do this. Originally I set up an IFTTT action to watch my private GitHub RSS feed and send me an email when a new star appeared, but this quickly filled my inbox. This way, I can check-in when I like.
