Bitcoin is a digital currency. You can use Bitcoin to send money to anyone via the Internet with no middleman. Learn more here.
This site was established in June 2011.
Keep an eye on the Bitcoin price, even while browsing in other tabs. Simply keep this site open and see the live Bitcoin price in the browser tab. (Note: Some mobile browsers don't yet support this feature.)
See how many bitcoins you can buy. Enter an amount on the right-hand input field, to see the equivalent amount in Bitcoin on the left.
See the value of your Bitcoin holdings. Enter the number of bitcoins you have, and watch their value fluctuate over time.
Try on your phone or tablet. This site is designed with mobile devices in mind. It works well on iPhone and iPad, however, there are known issues on Android (see 'Development' below for details).
Data is normally sourced from Mt.Gox. (In rare cases, other sources are used e.g. if there's a problem connecting to Mt.Gox.)
There are some Android-related issues I (the maker of this site) haven't yet been able to resolve because I don't have an Android device, which is needed for testing. I plan to buy one soon. (Special thanks to a very generous donor!)
