Hi everyone,
I created a tool to calculate the average lost in value per currency for exchanging via Shapeshift.io,
you can find it here: http://kaibakker.github.io/shapeshiftspread/

I would like feedback on the following things:
- calculation (1 - sqrt(exchange_rate_a_to_b*exchange_rate_b_to_a))*100%
- user interface
- is spread the correct them for what i created.

What information would be useful before exchanging a via shapeshift?

Kai

This is pretty sweet. The wallet should do this calculation for each bridge and then rank them according to lowest spread.

Great idea!

UI Feeback:

1. Instructions as to what this is. Explain that selecting one coin then shows the average spread to the other coins.
2. Color rank the spreads between lowest green highest red.
3. Section showing current top 3/5 best spreads and top 3/5 worst spreads.
4. Links to shapeshift, links to coins.

Awesome job though!  :D

Thanks for your feedback, I changed the explanation.
And added the current exchange rates to have a better overview.
