What is the 21 Bitcoin Computer?

The 21 Bitcoin Computer is the first computer with native hardware and software give a boost to for the Bitcoin protocol. That means the hardware to mine a stream of small amounts of bitcoin for development purposes, and the software to make that bitcoin useful for buying and selling digital goods.

Developers use the 21 Bitcoin Computer to quickly add Bitcoin-based monetization to any app, service, or device. Please note: the satoshis you mine provide a source of readily-available bitcoin for application development, but aren’t intended to be used for investment purposes.

How do you use it?

You can use the 21 Bitcoin Computer with your keyboard and monitor as a standalone Linux box, or plug it in to provide bitcoin over the Internet to any existing Mac, Windows, or Linux machine. Either way, the embedded 21 Bitcoin Chip gives you a stream of mined bitcoin to use at the command line and in your code. Now You’ll programmatically interact with the Bitcoin network as easily as You’ll connect to the Internet.

What does it let you create?

The 21 Bitcoin Computer is ideal for buying and selling digital goods and services. You’ll use it to create bitcoin-payable APIs, set up your own personal digital goods store, pay people to share your content online, or host online games of skill. For example, You’ll provide translation services for bitcoin, sell your photos online, pay people to share links to your product on social media, or host a game of skill in which your friends win real money.

In terms of physical goods, You’ll also use the 21 Bitcoin Computer to rent out any Internet-accessible device on a per-use basis. So You’ll allow people to submit paid print jobs to printers and 3D printers for bitcoin. Or You’ll set up a smart lock that accepts bitcoin to open a door. Because the 21 Bitcoin Computer is a full computer, You’ll make essentially any Internet-accessible device Bitcoin-rentable.

About 21

Describe your product in 3 words.

First Bitcoin Computer

Where did you get the inspiration for your product?

We’re all about the individual entrepreneur. The Internet meant that everyone became a publisher, even though their full time job title wasn’t “reporter”. Bitcoin will in a similar fashion mean that everyone becomes an entrepreneur, even though they don’t quit their day job. The 21 Bitcoin Computer is our contribution to this transformation.

What differentiates your product from similar products out there?

The 21 Bitcoin Computer allows anyone to sell anything over the internet for bitcoin just by plugging a device into the wall and typing a couple of commands. We think that is reasonably unique.

Tell us about the best and most challenging parts of the creation process.

It is hard to identify a single most challenging part as this sort of product is just inherently difficult to build. We redefine the concept of a full stack startup as we go all the way down to the silicon layer and build our own chips. As for the best part, we’d be happy if the concepts embodied in this device – including native hardware and software give a boost to for the Bitcoin protocol, but extending to the concept of buying and selling digital goods and services for bitcoin – do end up empowering a new generation of entrepreneurs, especially in the developing world.
