tl:dr 1000 seconds (refresh every 16 minutes for me but I monitor 7 different currencies maybe a lower number for you) ok. So I have made those changes and tested for about 2 months and can say I only started to hit my monthly limit for the free account toward the end of the month. That said 1000 seconds isn't real time but it's part of the free account and does work. For people that haven't made an account, set it to 1000 seconds. I wish this were the default and then a note to the user were placed somewhere that explains that you have a finite amount of calls before it will throw an error until the next month. Hope it helps.

Perhaps there's a better place to make QOL requests, but why not give us the option to use our own API key within the app? Manually hacking applet.js squawks on load. Thanks for the cool applet, btw. :)

Try 1000 seconds. I know it's a long time if you're trying to use these for trading but it should keep you out of foul trouble. Also, a free account helped me. Sorry, I should have tested longer. 1000 so far with a free account is working for me.

With 300 ms, I'm again blocked by the API after 24 days.

kojimad, That solution worked. I even reached out to and asked them to whitelist my ip which was not going to happen. Granted, I've never actually modified javascript like that but hey, first time for everything. To anyone else using this tool, do yourself a favor. Configure them on a VPN with a different IP than the one you will be using. Then once you have the tickers setup the way you want and you know they aren't going to blacklist your ip, then go ahead and turn them back on. Only set them for a check every 300 seconds (5 minutes.) for the free version.

Guys, if you add your own api_key parameter with your key at the URL on lines 101 and 213, of applet.js you can have it working with your own cryptocompare key (YOUR_API_KEY), like so: [ ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/cryptocoin@guantanamoe/applet.js ] line 101 let message ='GET', `${unit}?fsym=${this.ticker}&tsym=${this.currency}&limit=${length}&api_key=YOUR_API_KEY`); line 213 this._loadTrackers(`${this.ticker}&tsyms=${this.currency}&api_key=YOUR_API_KEY`); It's a quick fix that saved me!

awesome, guess we cant use our own api keys etc so we're all just supposed to be stuck with an error message. awesome

@MajestykMedia, only one pair per applet, the graph is tied to the pair. But you are able to add multiple applets.

Hi, is it possible to add multiple crypto's to the graph - if so please explain how to do this?? Could you please consider adding a choice for a line graph as well as the candle graph already included in your Cryptocoin cinnamon spice.
