Remember Bitcoin?.... the decentralized, new age currency, that was once traded at $19K which was supposed to revolutionize the global payment system. Well, it turns out that there are less than 3,585,825 Bitcoins left to mine. Around a year ago, I came across this post on r/bitcoin that talked about building a Bitcoin Clock across the street from the famous NYC Debt Clock. But instead of counting up like the debt clock, the Bitcoin Clock would count down how many bitcoin remains to be mined. This got me thinking.

Introducing Bitcoin Bar, a physical LED Dashboard that displays important Bitcoin information such as Price, Total Bitcoins left to mine, Blocks until the reward is halved, Hash rate, etc. You can customize and choose what specific parameters you wish to display from this list

Is it mould growing on that PI?
Great project I will do it as I need to track how much I am losing.
But with one that is newer.

Great! Share some photos when you make one. The Pi got a few rusty spots.

No Pi's we're harmed in the making of this Instructable.
Hahaha!

Oh my, what happened to that poor Pi?!

He's sick. Lol.
These comments are hilarious. I too want to know what happened to that Raspberry Pi! The mystery is extremely compelling.
Am I the only one to have a weird Pi. How do y'all manage to keep it so shiny.

Please tell us the story of this Raspberry! It seems to been gone thru hell and back with all the corrosion. This normally is the result of an awesome project... :)

I have used that Pi in a few other projects. Can't wait to share them.

Hope you built in plenty of downside capability . Seems its the only way its going atm.
Did you see the MIT advance on blockchains to reduce massively the time investment needed for individual data startup ?
