The 21 Bitcoin Computer is the fastest way for developers to learn Bitcoin. It has everything you need to build your first app in a weekend: a micropayments server, a full copy of the Blockchain, and a command line interface for programmatically mining, buying, and selling digital goods for bitcoin.
If you’ve ever wanted to get into the Bitcoin game... this new $400 gadget could be the best way to do so.
With no prior Bitcoin experience... integrate the Bitcoin protocol... with as little as two lines of code.
The bitcoin protocol is a feature of the operating system... integrates bitcoin so seamlessly into devices.
The 21 Bitcoin Computer makes it easier to build Bitcoin apps than ever before. Setting up a simple bitcoin-payable micropayments server is now just a few lines of code. And that’s earned a lot of praise from the developer community.
@21 this is the finest grade payment system at any software granularity for every alpha developer on earth. In time betas will follow. Wow.— emrahyalaz (@emrahyalaz) 28 November 2015

i'm now monetizing retweets on this account for 5000 satoshi (10 satoshi per follower or 5X an SMS message). we'll see what happens.— Santiago Siri (@santisiri) 4 December 2015

The best way to decentralize Bitcoin and create worldwide adoption? Put a small mining chip in every laptop, phone. Micropayment perfection.— Olivier Janssens (@olivierjanss) 14 December 2015
The @21 slack channel is what I imagine the Homebrew Computer club was like.— Alan Tsen (@alantsen) 14 December 2015
a few times a day...*catch up on the @21 Slack* *think about the potential for this stuff to improve the internet* *smile*— Stephen Cole (@opspryde) 13 December 2015
The increasing pummel of online advertising will incite a shift in content models on the web. Hello, pay as you go (couch @21 cough)— MoarDillon (@moredillon) 10 December 2015
So many comments along the lines of "it's just like the early days of the Internet". Very exciting. #bitcoin— Stephen Thorne (@stephen2206) 10 December 2015
There’s a bigger idea that the @21 is highlighting for me. Machine payments. Computers with wallets.— Spencer Noon (@spencernoon) 8 December 2015
And so the microservice economy begins - by paying half a cent for a retweet through an API call: https://t.co/dyi0RcKr1u— Fred Ehrsam (@FEhrsam) 24 November 2015
I predict that a lot of hackathon entries will be developed with @21dotco .— Tak Ishikawa (@hiroishi_tw) 24 November 2015
https://t.co/fNMPHG4Ioz is the foundation for a seamless digital marketplace. just needs one killer app to get the attention it deserves.— Divyahans Gupta (@divyahansg) 30 November 2015
If you can code it, you can sell it. The 21 Bitcoin Computer allows you to monetize the previously unmonetizable. With it you can lease out access to WiFi, sell digital goods to anyone on the internet, or even code a discount-hunting intelligent agent.
Go beyond the headlines to actually understand the guts of Bitcoin. The 21 Bitcoin Computer provides a steady stream of bitcoin, a recent copy of the Blockchain, and a series of tutorials that take you from Bitcoin novice to expert.
Starting with the basics of cryptographic hashes and digital signatures, these tutorials provide you with hands-on experience using Bitcoin and the Blockchain. Each tutorial contains about one hour of material, to make it easy to learn a little bit every day but still quickly acquire mastery over Bitcoin’s core concepts. The tutorials are brought to you by 21 in partnership with the same folks who taught Stanford’s CS251P Bitcoin course and wrote the official Bitcoin Developer Documentation.
