Blinkit can blink the lights of a variety of widely available devices, like USB Flash drives, Keyboards and (Tasmota) Smart home devices.Download
Stay notified with Light and Sound about new Blockchain specific actions such as transactions, coin price changes and more.
A large variety of widely available and inexpensive devices can be blinked: USB sticks, keyboard lights, and all smarthome devices that are running the Tasmota firmware.
The code is not compiled to keep it editable with any text editor. Blinkit is a HTA application the interface is made with HTML and CSS, the backend to interact with the devices are batch scripts.
Blinkit is currently available for 6 different blockchains: Steem, Hive, Harmony, AEternity, Bitcoin Cash and the latest version is developed specifically for the Solana blockchain.
Blinkit connects with blockchain nodes that are located around the world. In case the preset node is offline you can always change the node address. (or change it to a testnet node for testing purpose.) More node addresses can be found on the blockchain specific websites and forums.
These devices can be blinked with Blinkit, more devices will be added.
Any USB flash drive that have a status LED can be used, independent of its brand or model, most preferable will be a USB stick with a bright LED and a small form factor.
Most keyboards and laptops have a num, scroll, and caps lock LED status light, Blinkit can blink them independent of brand and model when blockchain actions are detected.
Inexpensive WIFI lightbulbs, power switches and even RGB lightbulbs can be used to blink on and off when newly detected blockchain actions are detected. (Supported devices must run Tasmota firmware)
The IoT version of Blinkit can be uploaded to the board with the Arduino IDE, when choosing a board keep in mind that development is now focused on the ESP32 and that it would be best to get the ESP32 - TTGO T-Display, because development for the older ESP8266 - Heltec Wifi kit 8 is discontinued.

The Blinkit project started in February 2018 on the Steem blockchain, and later was made compatible for Hive it's goals are to notify it's users with light and sound when blockchain action are detected. The supported devices are widely available, and the software is opensource
The Blinkit application is available for multiple blockchains, each version has functions specifically developed for that blockchain. The development of Blinkit comes forward out of the passion for devices, blockchains and technology and to make them interact and connect.
To be able to develop the Blinkit project, we search for opportunities on blockchains and ask you to donate to Blinkit if you regularly use the software and like the project. Donations and participation will help the project to grow into its full potential.
Blinkit is provided at no cost. By donating, you will help the development of the Blinkit software and project.
