We're finishing up the write up on the first prototype we used for the ESPicker.  For the hardware we used the two components with which we were most familiar: a DevKit board and a 0.96" OLED.  We used the simple test code from our previous Project Log with the addition of barebones (no library) OLED code from our ESP8266 Demos repository.

And so, now in addition to printing the cryptocurrency price data on our Serial Monitor, we also display the latest price on an OLED screen controlled over I2C.

Please visit our repository for getting the code:
