The underrated stock survey! Submit your picks for the community to track
Following on the previous tracking post (http://redd.it/i2mmzg) and the highly upvoted request from DJ-Ascii , I've set up this post for another round of underrated or undervalued stock picks. As before, let us know what stock you believe is underrated and a consistent winner that has done well for you, or you believe will do well going forward. In order to make this easier to track please use the following guidelines for submitting.
Only one submission per comment. You can make multiple comments, but please only submit one stock per comment.
Please include at least the ticker and the company name. Feel free to explain why you think this is a good stock.

ivendPay and Groestlcoin cryptocurrency have announced the start of integration. IT company ivendPay, the developer of a universal multicurrency payment module for automatic and retail trade, intends to integrate Groestlcoin cryptocurrency — one of the oldest and the most reputable Bitcoin forks into the payment system. Groestlcoin is characterized by instant transactions with almost zero commission and is optimal for mass retail trade where micropayments are mostly used. According to Sergey Danilov, founder and CEO of ivendPay, Groestlcoin will become the 11th cryptocurrency integrated into the payment module. The first working vending machines for the sale of coffee, snacks and souvenirs, equipped with ivendPay modules, served the visitors of the CryptoEvent RIW exhibition at VDNKh in Moscow and accepted Bitcoin, Go Byte, Dash, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Zcash, Bitcoin Gold, Dogecoin and Emercoin. ivendPay terminals are designed and patented to accept payments in electronic money, cryptocurrencies and cash when connecting the corresponding cash terminal. Payment for the purchase takes a few seconds, the choice of the payment currency occurs at the time of placing the order on the screen, the payment is made by QR-code through the cryptocurrency wallet on the smartphone. The interest in equipping vending machines with ivendPay terminals has already been shown by the companies of Malaysia and Israel, where first test networks would be installed. ivendPay compiles a waiting list for vending networks interested in buying terminals and searches for an investor to launch industrial production. According to Sergey Danilov, the universal payment terminal ivendPay for the vending machine will cost about $500. The founder of ivendPay has welcomed the appearance of Groestlcoin among integrated cryptocurrencies, as it is another step towards the realization of the basic idea of digital money - free and cross-border access to goods and services for everybody.
Wrote a Mac menu-bar ticker widget supporting Ethereum, would love your feedback!
Disclaimer: I already posted this to /BitcoinMarketshere, hope this double post is legit. Anyhow, Coin Tick - it's a realtime menu-bar-ticker-widget for Mac, supporting many crypto-currencies, including ETH and ETC. I wrote it after being frustrated with the alternatives (specifically looking for Ethereum-supporting tickers). Here's a gif and a link to the Mac App Store. Hope you find it useful, any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks!
Cryptocurrencies extend losses as Coincheck reopens new account signups and limited trading services
A user on a Malwarebytes forum, 1vladimir, reported yesterday of suspicious behavior surrounding a cryptocurrency price tracking application, called CoinTicker -- after further inspection of the application, users discovered that CoinTicker is a trojan horse that installs two remote back doors on a host computer upon being downloaded. The two remote backdoors allow a malicious actor to remotely take control of a host computer. At the time, it is unknown how many individuals may be affected by the malware.
An article by the Financial Times details that big four auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), has hired as many as 400 blockchain experts in an effort to best serve clients’ blockchain needs. Ralph Weinberger, head of PWC’s global network assurance methodology group, told the Financial Times, “We are devoting significant resources to how we might provide audit services in not just cryptocurrency, but blockchain.” PwC has focused on helping companies understand compliance procedures involving cryptocurrencies while assuring firms properly meet tax obligations relating to crypto assets. The Financial Times’ article concludes that PwC has a strong desire to become a leader in blockchain compliance and technology, pointing out that the big four auditor already has a section of their website dedicated to blockchain.
eToro, a popular social cryptocurrency trading platform, has partnered with Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, to list Binance Coin (BNB) on eToro. This marks the first exchange to list BNB tokens for trading using fiat. BNB was first issued by Binance to serve as the “gas” that powers its cryptocurrency exchange -- often times, BNB is used on Binance to pay for trading fee, exchange fees, listing fees, and partner applications. The addition of BNB on eToro brings the total cryptocurrency assets offered on the exchange up to 13.
JPMorgan Chase Bank’s blockchain, Quorum, is going to be used to tokenize gold bars using smart contracts, according to an article by the Financial Review. Quorum was originally developed in partnership with the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance to be applied in the financial sector, however, employees at JPMorgan Chase have begun to test its applications in industries like healthcare, aviation, and banking. JPMorgan Chase’s head of blockchain initiatives, Umar Farooq, is quoted by the Financial Review, saying, “We are the only financial player that owns the entire stack, from the application to the protocol.”
Monex Group, a Japanese internet broker who purchased Japanese cryptocurrency exchange, Coincheck, after it was hacked in January 2018, is reopening new account signups and offering limited trading services on Coincheck, as per a statement issued Tuesday morning. This news comes after Coincheck reported yesterday of a 66% revenue drop in CY3Q2018. According to the announcement, users are now able to deposit four cryptocurrencies into accounts, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). A strict know-your-customer process will be in place for new users registering with Coincheck, the announcement detailed.
Russia’s Financial Monitor Service (FMS) has contacted the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to request an intergovernmental initiative to manage the supply and flow of cryptocurrencies. The FATF is a global financial regulating body -- this past June, it announced that it would build global-binding policies for cryptocurrency exchanges. Deputy Director of the FMS, Pavel Livadny, confirmed that the FMS is seeking cooperation from al FATF member countries, pointing to money laundering as the primary concern in cryptocurrencies. Livadny also went on to confirm that Russia’s FMS will seek to impose a restriction on cryptocurrency transactions over USD$9,000.
The cryptocurrency community is coming together to refute claims by Nature after it posted a research report claiming that Bitcoin (BTC) mining could help temperatures increase by more than 2 degrees Celsius in just 11 years, depending on BTC’s rate of adoption. Cryptocurrency experts are arguing that the study’s assumptions are “naive”, saying the study’s assumptions would require BTC to scale to an unrealistic 310 billion daily transactions on chain and that block sizes would have to be a massive 3.2 gigabytes.
The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is considering a ban on the sale of cryptocurrency-based derivatives, according to a Monday report by the Financial Times. The UK’s FCA published a statement Monday detailing that it is set to launch a consultation in the first quarter of 2019 concerning whether or not to place a ban on the sale of cryptocurrency-based derivatives at some point in the future. The FCA is also reportedly launching a parallel consultation into whether or not to extend its regulatory jurisdiction onto cryptocurrency assets themselves and the exchanges and wallet services that work with cryptocurrency assets. The FCA detailed in its statement issued Monday that it has, “made clear that in its view crypto assets have no intrinsic value and investors should therefore be prepared to lose all the value they have put in.”
Would the Litecoin community be interested in a crowdfunded IOS wallet? +AMA
Hi everyone, my name is Ethan Rubinson. I am a rising senior at Cornell University's College of Engineering that is currently studying Computer Science and Software Engineering. I've been involved (and enthralled) with crypto-currencies since 2011, after learning about Bitcoin. Earlier in the year, I released a Bitcoin price ticker "Bit Patrol", for the Mac App Store. Since then, I've also developed an IOS app through a freelancing job (completely unrelated to cryptocurrencies sadly =/ ). I was wondering if the community would be interested in a crowdfunded IOS wallet dedicated to Litecoin. I'll be hanging around this thread for a while. Feel free to ask me anything below, or email me at [email protected]
Hey folks, I wrote the XMR Ticker app for Mac that some of you around here use: https://www.reddit.com/Monero/comments/5wz6i1/xmr_ticker_for_mac_new_version/ Tonight I thought about writing a little iOS app that tracks the USD price of XMR in USD from Poloniex, inspired by the visual style of Bitcoinity (where the price animates in an ease in / ease out curve). I made this concept app (its really rough so please go easy!). Would there be any interest in an iPhone app like this? If so I might make the effort to pop this on the app store. If people really like it I could add proper features (like the alerts/triggers I put in the Desktop app), that said Push notifications on iOS are a bit of a faff to implement. Just trying to gauge interest, Looks like this: https://youtu.be/JZSOXHOUfsQ EDIT1: This only shows the app updating when turned on first, anytime the price updates the price will update in an animated fashion trickling the price up or down. EDIT2: Please ignore CSI on TV, my missus never gets off the fucking thing.

www.qrk.cc/press/ Quark evolves the electronic payment process with two key features - it is Faster and more Secure than Bitcoin! By now you may have heard of Bitcoin - it is an electronic store of value that is limited in quantity, and is able to be used as a mean of electronic payment. Quark is a digital payment system based on the Bitcoin code, but with key upgrades in its technology. These innovations will allow it to serve its users needs in a rapidly emerging marketplace that uses digital money or “cryptocurrency”. Digital money is revolutionizing money transfer - in the same way that e-mail revolutionized the way we communicate. Digital money allows us to pay worldwide in a safe and secure manner with minimal fees and without a need for a currency exchange. Importantly, Quark and other digital money is being rapidly adopted into online stores, and will be soon available in traditional stores through payment providers like Moolah (https://moolah.io/). Quark transfers in a blink and is safe by its technical design: Faster - The Quark network can create payment confirmations starting within 30s; by comparison, the bitcoin network takes approximately 10 minutes to create its first payment transfer confirmation. Secure - Quark builds on Bitcoins' already robust security by taking its base encryption algorithm and adds 9 rounds of encryption. The Quark Community is ecstatic that you have chosen to JoinUs and is announcing two breaking news stories: 1) Quark Announces a Partnership with the Innovative Development Team behind Shaq-Fu: The Legend Reborn - Quark to be offered as a Means of In-Game Payment! Additionally, through our Support, Quark will be Introduced to 8.2 Million Shaquille O'Neal Fans! The Quark Community proudly announces a partnership with the talented and innovative game developers behind the upcoming crowdfunded game Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn (http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/shaq-fu-a-legend-reborn)! Our group is extremely pleased to announce that we will be working closely with the developers to enable Quark as an in-game payment option! Our group looks forward to a strong and mutually beneficial partnership with the great people behind this game. Additionally, we are very excited that as a result of our support to the game, we will be introduced via twitter to 8.2 million Shaquille O’Neal fans, with an accompanying YouTube video! The Quark Community looks forward to meeting Mr. O’Neal’s fans and hopes that they will join us in Reinventing Money together. Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is a remake of a classic 1990’s beatem-up video game featuring none other than future Hall of Fame NBA Center Shaquille O’Neal in an epic battle of physical prowess against hordes of evil-doers. The current development team is out to re-design everything utilizing modern technology and gameplay dynamics - should be awesome! The Fu is strong with this one - Shaq recently threw the gauntlet at Kung-Fu legend Bruce Lee - we look forward to seeing the coming showdown hopefully in-game! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1OTDukccfw&feature=youtu.be 2) Quark Digital Money Partners with Moolah to provide Fast and Secure In-store and Online Payment Solutions! The Quark community is ecstatic to partner with Moolah, which is an emerging leader among cryptocurrency payment platforms. They offer a full service payment platform, which allows for: - Direct USD to digital money (cryptocurrency) exchange - Merchant cryptocurrency payment portals - online and in store (in progress) The feature that Quark is especially excited about is their upcoming in store point of service payment devices. The Quark community believes that Quark is the perfect partner for this technology due to its inherent speed - with Quark, it will be possible to transfer payment and get initial confirmations within 30s instead of the minimum 10 minutes that Bitcoin needs. This will allow for in store payment for everything from small purchases like coffee, to large ticket items like furniture and home theatre merchandise in a Fast, and Secure way. Additionally - if you're a merchant, charity organization or anyone else, and want to accept Quark and any other cryptocurrencies as payment with direct conversion to USD, please get in contact with Moolah. In Partnership with Moolah, Euro/Quark and GBP/Quark will be upcoming, so that Europeans will be able to participate in this exciting new service. Other services offered by Moolah: Prelude - Exchange services are offered allowing for direct exchange of USD/Quark as well for other cryptocurrencies! Exchange between cryptocurrencies at Prelude in a highly secure manner, with a company that has proven dedicated to building trust through transparency of practice. https://prelude.io/ Digipay - Web browser extensions which allow for the use of cryptocurrencies on major websites like Amazon! http://digipay.io/ MitM - Escrow services for those times when both sides need absolute certainty to protect their investment. https://mitm.io/ We are proud and very excited to team with Moolah and hope to establish a strong and rewarding relationship.

PART 2: Summary (transcript) of Wednesday's AMA given by the Particl Team - Thank you to all who participated!
Below is a summary (PART 2) of our AMA held Wednesday, 2017.06.28. Thank you for everyone who participated! Please refer to /Particl/wiki/faq for our maintained collection of questions. We ask you make sure your question hasn't already been answered before submitting. Thank you.
How far are you with the Gui ? Will it be in Testnet 4 and if yes when is testnet 4 ?
right now we are working towards getting the GUI ready for public testing. Based on our estimates we will have some GUI elements ready for testing next week.
What you mean with "some elements" you mean the gui like back in sdc but like say without widgets ?
there will be basic functionality, but it won't be complete as its still in development.
There will be a marketplace app on app store or google play? If so, when?
Any mobile version of the marketplace will come after the second funding round. This first seed round is to get the MVP to market. Greater enhancements will come with additional funding and larger focused teams.
Will there be a way to run the wallet at launch on Mac OS X?
Will there be a browser-based market or do users always have to use a dedicated particl software to make purchases?
Particl wallet will work both in browser and as an application .. to ensure privacy you require your own particld daemon running within the same network. Whilst it is possible for it to work with external/shared daemons that is not part of the current scope to effects it has on ones privacy
Who do you see as your main customer base? Average people that use or work with Crypto Currencies?
To start it'll be trend setters so crypto users. Big picture we'll be reaching out to vendors, sellers and buyers in countries that don't have access to the ease of amazon or ebay due to political positioning and restrictions on where they live. That's the big goal of the market
Will TOR, I2P be integrated in the wallet on release?
where can we buy Particl now?
you will need to wait until PART hits the exchanges particl will soon be available on exchanges, we just need to finalize legilities, and exchange to list them soon
does Particl have a wallet available for OTC exchanges?
particl will have a very user-friendly wallet
Will you guys make a video showcasing the wallet GUI soon?
The wallet will be on testnet soon so people can be hands on with it, much better than video
How do you overcome a vendor that is brand new to Crypto Currencies, that can't pay for his supplies or merchandise in crypto? Will you be working directly with any banks?
working with banks would not be a good strategy. as of the moment, we will make particl marketplace to be a decentralized marketplace free from paperwork etc. we are in discussions with partners who should be able to provide us with the facility to entertain these types of transactions
The fact that you guys met in Hong Kong in the past, has something to do with the possibility of establishing contacts in the Chinese market?
yes Establishing a presence in China is a major reason for this Particl pivot
Private sub markets... What would prevent that developing into unfavorable things that would bypass the community governance voting?
Private markets are precisely that, no governance.
But there is a way of voting certain products out by stakers from what I've gathered?
Private markets are just that private, who is in there, what is happening, what is selling is all private. the network is unable to tell what is going on. similar to how signal or whatsapp encrypts on client side
what if someone gains access to a private market and it's determined that there are undesirable products being sold in there and they take some screenshots and post it up online like in reddit or bitcoin talk or something? Is there a governance model overseeing the private markets at all?
There will be no governance on private markets .. it is impossible todo. the only way to "gain access" is for 1 or both parties to "give access" by posting these
it was indicated in the main thread here that 'the network will only be supported while it is being run cleanly'. is this concern not relevant within private markets? like why is it relevant within the main marketplace but not within private markets? particularly if it becomes publicly known through screenshots on public channels? Like I get into a private market and take some screenshots and put them on reddit, is that not concern about the market being run cleanly?
this has already been answered in another question ... you cannot govern something you cannot access .. the whole point of a private market place is that it is private by the creator and shared with those he wishes to only.. I am not sure what is the misunderstanding here?
I think the concern is that any private market would bypass the community governance and therefor allow any kinds of black market items that could be used to hurt particl's reputation for larger more legitimate things. Ie larger sellers on Amazon wouldn't want to have anything to do with a marketplace that had screenshots of nefarious things being sold...
I see your point and understand it however let me give you another example ... If you and I use Signal and we decide to trade Cuban Cigars ... you post that on the internet. Should Signal be held liable because they provided a secure means for you to communicate and trade? Particls Private Markets are no different, we are providing a means for people to trade in 100% privacy (anything from cigars to private paintings etc) .. in that environment you cannot govern because it is encrypted for everyone else. Is it possible people may use this for nefarious items? Yes... but it is also possible for that to happen on Signal or any other good encrypted chat platform. Should we stop developing for the good because a few bad actors might use it?
What about the case where people just don't vote?
if people do not want to vote, we cannot force them to. this however, remains a feature in the particl the required threshold will be set quite low at first, as failed governance will be very fatal for Particl. The network will only be supported while it is being run cleanly
Is there a legal risk of staking if illegal products are traded on the platform?
the reason why we are taking a lot of time with foundation is because we want to make sure there are no loopholes in terms of legality. i'm confident that we have this covered
Is their a current partner that can re-distribute particl or another coin, back into my choice of monetary unit? (usd, eur, rupee, peso, etc)
Would you be willing to introduce that partner to the :ark: team?
i don't see any reason not to
Can you explain how the governance will work and what will prevent people from gaming the system with multiple accounts?
the governance will be based on a staking vote (not yet final) we will ensure that there are no duplications for the market we're still researching and developing models of governance. a seller will need to pay a fee to list which can become expensive if gaming a system. voting will be an incentive for the network so it would become expensive to gain a majority % to manipulate voting
I could see spammers testing the governance then worth illicit goods
of course. there is no centralized control so the network affect will be in effect
Will the people who were gracious enough to donate 25% or more from their bonus receive any incentive outside of just having username be mentioned?
How does early access to Market sound? Open to ideas we are actively thinking of ways to reward donators. if you can think of a reasonable reward let us know
I understand that details of particl being on what exchanges at what time is not currently possible due to the unforseen events of the delays of the terms of service. But is there still open communication with the exchanges and are they responding positively to the idea of listing particl when it's released?
a lot of exchanges are responding positively. we are actually expecting to be listed a few days after mainnet release, but could not confirm any of exchanges of course
How much % of wallets are created and how much has been donated to this day?
83% are ready for genesis with 125k Donated
125k does that include the teams donation of 40k or without?
that is without .. and the team will match upto 40k based on 5:1 formula ... so 125+25k=150k ... well short of the 250k we are aiming for
nice Im rooting for the project to achieve this goal. This is a uniqum in crypto that people give away money to help out other people. I hope you guys will provide an address for people to donate their staking rewards to so we can achieve this goal. Yea staking to address function would be nice but wont be possible im near future due another feature in the pipeline ?
we will do what we can to stake, but the priority will stil be focused on producing a marketplace I said "it was unlikely" ... however we wont know until we get down to the nitty gritty on it ... best way to donate to the cause is the increase your donation % before the genesis block
About marketing? Are you doing it all by yourselves or are you going to work with a specialized company?
we have a few partners in terms of Pmarketing you might have seen taizen and leon fu videos, we have hired PR firms as well we have been ramping up and beginning contracts with professionals beginning in June. in prep for mainnet and PART tokens being live in the wild
This PR firms have any kind experience in crypto world?
Your RingCT, how far along is this in development?
RCT was on our last testnet and thus far only had minor bugs which needed addressing. We will launch a new testnet post mainnet dedicated to RCT testing ...
How do you see particl main accomplishments in say 1 year, 3 years, and 5 years?
before 1 year, we will have a fully working marketplace. before 3 years we will have mobile. i believe once we have mobile, we have the potential to go mainstream 1 year: fully audited, market place running, good reputations on the market place, fully funded 3 years: fully functional market place, gaining market share 5 years: Actual competitive market place
There was a concern raised in the particl slack channel two days ago about 110 bitcoin being taken from the transparency address. Can you comment on what this is being used for?
we don't see this as a concern and we don't know why this was raised. they were used for hedging, salaries, foundation/legal expenses etc we will be posting quarterly expenses for this
Are there plans to use the marketplace for geotagged locational services at some point in addition to just products being sold
Its something we've thought about. We've also discussed allowing rendering of services through the market place, with micropayments, quotas, etc.. Its not something that's currently in our pipeline, but I think we'll ultimately need to head in this direction.. Digital goods will be allot easier to sell than physical goods, as escrows can be automated with tickers.
when will Particl launch?
particl mainnet will launch as soon as the foundation is completed. we should be expecting this soon, unfortunately we have no definite date
I see Ark and Particl being very similar. But the market is Enormously Huge! It would be nice to see Ark and Particle be able to team up together, and be able to dominate the market as separate entities. Particl could enter areas in the market where Ark hasn’t been able to reach. And there could be areas where Particl would enable Ark as a sidelined exchange. Maybe a faster or cheaper exchange (Hence beating ripple)
we would love to work with ark with any potential project. i personally am a fan of ark and wish the team nothing but success! agree. With being a trading platform of goods, impowering the customer and making their life as easy as possible is the end game. +checkout, +payment we want to integrate tokens into the market not just rely on an entity like Shapeshift to do it so getting our devs working together and having ARK as token in market gives ARK a usecase, brings in buyers sellers and allows more choices
this would be a great use case for bridged chains.
Do you expect any difficulty in having the app approved in the app store? I ask you this because in the past Apple told to jaxx wallet to remove dash.
there is no guarantee with apple market, but we do know that they're slowly warming up to cryptocurrencies. we will put a huge amount of effort to convince them, else we can always find ways to go around this
sooo... are you still hiring or are the positions from June 6th already filled?
we are still looking to fill in a few more talents. hired a few people, but the more the merrier We are still hiring. (job postings will be added to forthcoming website revamp)
This may be a bland question. But who comes first in making profit? Acquiring the merchants or the user-base? What obstacles will particle have to leap over to gain momentum in the marketplace (merchants and user-base) and in what ways will this be accomplished? (edited)
it should be both. i don't imagine one existing without the other. as we are a foundation, we are not interested about US making a profit, but we want to make sure both buyers and sellers would love our project all good business side questions. I know obstacles in a marketplace revolve around the customer experience. So how easy is it to use the client? Can I view and search and buy online versus trusting a program? Is checkout easy? Is paying easy? Can I see similar products on the client or do i need to do my own research and then come to Particl to buy it? We need to nail those to be of value, otherwise we're just a cool alternative that is uber private but lacking what people really need
In these days there are too many projects which aim on anonymity or decentralized marketplace. What is the strong competence that PART have than other projects?
Particl is fulfilling a vision set out by ShadowCash several years ago .. we have been adding the needed features to provide a complete end to end solution. As far as I am aware we are the only ones doing this. first we've got a robust foundation in the latest bitcoin. second we've already enhanced that with CT and governance and voting to give power to the people. third, we're more than a currency (even though we do that very well). fourth, the platform is crypto-friendly, no coin should feel like we think we're the best and only the best, we're making a use case for all coins in the market i believe we have not seen both. this will be an end-to-end process, seamless for users, who does not need know about tech details. we also have other features not available such as crypto-agnosticism. this will make people think of a one-stop shop decentralized center
How does an anonymous marketplace, avoid outsiders (or non-participants of that marketplace) trying to look in?
You start at the outside layer of providing a secure means to communicate .. once you have that you need a way to trade with privacy and finally a currency which can complete the trade without leaving a trace .. all of these pillars are part of the Particl platform
What is your opinion on ethereum?
Not one for me, right now its all hype with gaping holes we cannot, as a foundation comment on eth. just a personal view, i believe eth has achieved a lot and i commend them for that. i definitely can't take anything away from them
More importantly. Are there any plans to have particl feature smart contracts of some kind? Or can it communicate with the ethereum blockchain
internally we're fans of rootstock. there will be some communication with them at some point i imagine Bitcoin currently has many of the smart contract like functionality we need .. but in the future we could leverage a sidechain like smart contract platform if needed with native bip65 and 2-party trustless escrow we can achieve similar results already
this might sounds silly, but do you think we will see other selling other crypto-currencies on the marketplace by fully making use of the escrow system?
I 100% think we will see OTC usage on particl Absolutely .. imagine a localbitcoin running on Particl Especially people offering better rates than Shapeshift integration or other coins not available in shifting apps
Setting a live webpage as a desktop background in osx
I would like to set a live webpage as a desktop background on my late 2012 iMac. I think you can do this quite easily in windoze using 'active wallpapers' but I'm struggling with my google-fu to find an osx way... This is the page I would like to set: http://bitcoinity.org/markets?currency=EUR&exchange=mtgox it is a live ticker of BTC price in euros from the MtGox exchange. Anyone got any suggestions? I have investigated (but not bought and tried) http://mac.appstorm.net/reviews/internet-reviews/desktopr-put-a-website-on-your-desktop/ as the reviews in App Store mentioned that it was OK for static pages, which would not suit my needs... Also, I know that you can make a webpage in dashboard, but this reloads everytime you switch to it, and also, if I make my webpage max size, then try to select it all in the dashboard 'trimmer' it never lets me select the whole page, which is kinda useless :/ Thanks!
