Looking up BTC exchange rate from Linux console

Those of us who spend some time at the SSH console at the expense of GUI and web browsers have finally been saved: there is now a way to check the exchange rate of the BTC from the command line. The rate.sx website allows you to request an up to date performance chart for Bitcoin — plus many other crypto currencies — and presents it in beautiful ASCII color mode. The service even allows you to specify a different period (e.g. 1 day, 1 week, 90 days…) however at present historical data is only from 7. January 2018 onwards.

Just one more reason to love Bitcoin and the Bitcoin community.
