I don't see how much Bitcoin is left to be mined by this time. It's been a thing for so long. It's one of the main reasons I don't do much Bitcoin trading, as it can be a bit hard to guess all the abrupt movements that this particular can have. I always wanted to become a full-time trader who can successfully predict all market movements, and Bitcoin has been impossible to guess so far. It's much easier for me to trade indexes on my https://www.investous.com/ instead of crypto coins. I'm pretty sure that not a lot of people can trade crypto with great success.

Your not allowed to on replit, but its not worth it on python, due to how slow it is. Try nodejs, or C++ (c++ is much faster btw)

Mining crypto currency is not something that python can really do. You could web scrape using beautiful soup to find the price.

You can find further help on youtube. Hope this was helpful!

@JoeyRueff your kinda correct you “can” but you would wast your time and money because to do it efficiently you’d have to have like a couple grand in computer equipment and you would constantly have to replace it in short it’s a bad idea.
