It took me three weekends to build Aurelius. I had originally planned to finish in one weekend but it sort of got away from me. I overestimated how fast I could finish the features I had planned.
The features I had written down is a much longer list so I had to drastically cut down to what was I thought to be the essentials. Looking back, I probably could have launched with fewer features and met the deadline. Lesson learned.
Regarding the tech stack, I went with what I knew and was familiar with. Any other way, I'd have to spend time to learn some of the ins and outs.
One of the biggest issues I have noticed when dealing with my crypto investments is that it's hard to know what my return is on a detailed level. Beanvest seems like a nice solution for that. Is Excel your biggest competitor or is Beanvest more of a compliment rather than a replacement?

I focused more on stocks, but the main feature I implemented is the portfolio benchmark.
Every time you buy or sell a stock, it simulates the same investment but in an index such as the S&P 500. This way, you can know if you perform better than the market, and this is not a very easy thing to do in Excel.
I guess it could do the same for cryptos by comparing your portfolio to the performance of BTC for example.

Thanks for the great question, Micah!
I guess it'll happen. Though there'll be something new come up. Like they added more TLDs, or new types of domain names (i.e blockchain-based domain names)

I have always wanted to create a community around people who are like me (makers). When I first started building the site about 3-4 years ago, it was focused more on the "tech" community and had job boards, blog articles, resumes, and much wider focus. Despite being about 95% done with it, we totally scrapped it and didn't think about it for a couple years, then we started over from the ground up earlier this year with a refined focus and goal.
