Get timely warning to price swings, so that you never miss the right market opportunity to make profit. The screen flashes on large price jumps, warning you of big market moves as they happen.

TicrThing flashing

The TicrThing simplifies price watch down to a single value. No trend lines, volume depths or complex price indicators. What is the current bitcoin price? The answer is right there, anytime, without starting an app.

Story

This project grew from our passion about the Blockchain revolution. We’ve been immersed in the cryptocurrency ecosystem long enough to know this: everyone is secretly obsessed with the bitcoin price. And we have to admit it – we too get excited watching the price roller-coaster. We wanted to create a gadget that makes the price watch as simple as checking the time. So we built the TicrThing and showcased it in our local bitcoin community, which responded with overwhelmingly positive feedback. This gave us the motivation to pursue it further. We then demonstrated our first prototypes to a broader audience at Barcelona Mini Maker Faire.

Your support will help us implement all the cool designs and features on our roadmap and bring the cube in production, so you can enjoy your hands-free bitcoin companion. Above all, your backing will enable us to share our passion with the broader cryptocurrency community and to offer our contribution to the Blockchain ecosystem.
