Smart Display that shows cryptocurrency rates on home screen / as a wdiget

    Posted this on the Home Automation forum but you guys might have good suggestions here also. :)

    Was thinking of buying a smart Display like the Echo 5 Show, or Google Nest Hub for a friend who's primary use would be to show live cryptocurrency prices on the screen as a scrollable table.

    After searching Google I couldn't really find anything that would be dedicated to the cause.

    Keeping them open in a browser window doesn't really cut the mustard, or having to ask Google assistant the current price manually is not what I'm looking for either.

    Can anyone think of a decent way of doing it?

    A cheap tablet might be another way of doing it but it would be nice to have a display that's always on and has nightime dimming like the smart displays out there.

    Would be a nice idea for a plugin for the smart displays though.
