Hardware Bitcoin Price Ticker features a 1" OLED display which shows the current Bitcoin price. Place it on your desk, or next to your bed and never miss those price swings again.

A companion mobile phone application will allow you to set the currency and update frequency.
The case is made from Ebony, Mahogany and rosewood.
