Computer firm ’21 Inc’ has announced its first consumer product, 21 Bitcoin Computer, on Monday, in the form of a pocket sized device that an entrepreneur or developer can instantly buy or sell digital goods and services at the command line using Bitcoin.
The 21 Bitcoin Computer can be used to:
1) Instantly mine Bitcoin from the command line
2) Sell API calls for Bitcoin, like English-to-Chinese translation or file conversion
3) Set up your own personal iTunes-like digital goods store
4) Reward peers for posting your links on social media
5) Make any IoT hardware Bitcoin-rentable, from smart locks to 3D printers
The user can do these things quickly as the 21 Bitcoin Computer includes a built-in 21 mining chip and a built-in 21 micro-payments server, which means the user can easily buy and sell things using Bitcoins.
21 Inc CEO Balaji Srinivasan, in a blog-post said, “There’s a lot of technology under the hood that makes all this possible: a custom mining chip, a large data center backend, and the 21 Bitcoin OS — the first Linux distribution that includes both the device drivers to generate a constantly replenished source of Bitcoin and a suite of programs written to natively consume it.”
He also added that the technology is merely a tool to return economic power to the individual.”We want to make it possible for you to turn your bright idea into passive income by selling Bitcoin-payable goods, games, and services over the Internet through a 21 Bitcoin Computer.”
The success of the 21 Bitcoin Computer will make Bitcoin the next fundamental system resource, available by default on every new computer. Whether developer or entrepreneur, those interested in reaching the new destination can go ahead and get a 21 Bitcoin Computer, he says.
