Hi bitcoiners BTC,

After being in bitcoins (particularly mining) for quite some time now, I've noticed myself checking the bitcoin value alot throughout the day.
I decided to code my own application, so I didn't need to keep my eye on the bitcoin price and keep re-opening the charts on the internet (after closing my browser session).

As we all know; bitcoin is a continuously developing project, and I would like to contribute just a little bit by making this available to download!

The software is a standalone executable (portable  Smiley) and has a .NET 4.0 dependency.

  • View current price (top left corner)
  • The chart is zoomable & pannable.
  • Change the refresh interval and chart time period.
  • Save chart as image.
  • Print chart.
  • The form is resizable (completely, in both directions).
  • Alert on drop or increase.
  • Alert on percentage change or value change.
  • Alert using messagebox, tray notification and/or sound.

The Ticker supports three exchanges:
1. MtGox
2. BTC-e
3. Bitstamp
4. LocalBTC

I have implemented three currencies:
1. USD
2. EUR
3. GBP

Please tell me what you think and leave some comments. Wink
I'll take any suggestions to improve the software!

Note. This is the first version, I haven't been able to test this completely.

version 1.0: Click me!

Known issues:
- At some pc's the chart is empty at startup, but pops up after 10-20 seconds.

Thanks to: for the chart info. They made this application possible. Smiley
ZedGraph for the chart library.
