So, I was irritated that the only bitcoin widget was 0.15 BTC, which I think is too expensive for such a trivial function.
So I attempted to make one, but couldn't get it to refresh. I searched for a general image display, and I found Image Loader:

I use the free ticker from:

Add 8 more pixels to the dimensions, and refresh every 10 minutes:

And voilà! A free ticker that updates every 10 minutes. Cheesy

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Is there something wrong with this gadget? I can install it, and I can get the settings, but it wont display the image, it just says loading, and never brings up the image. Are there any other free options out there?
