The 21 Bitcoin Computer Enters Canada; Shipment To Other Countries To Start Soon

21 Inc., a bitcoin startup, has announced that its first product, the 21 Bitcoin Computer, is now shipping to Canada – its first destination outside of the United States.

“For those in Canada, shipping internationally is a first step for us as we look to build the foundations of a machine-payable web, where borderless currencies like Bitcoin can thrive. And for those outside of the US or Canada, we’ll be opening up new territories for shipping over the next few weeks”, the company said in a blog post.

The company unveiled the bitcoin computer in September last year, and retail giant Amazon started its shipment in November. In January, 21 Inc. announced that customers can buy the computer using Bitcoin as well as credit card.

Priced at $399.99, the device can be set up from an existing Mac, Windows, or Linux laptop or run as a standalone Linux machine. It is designed for developers to easily build Bitcoin-payable apps, services and devices. It has a suite of pre-configured Bitcoin-dependent software, and includes a 128 GB SD card loaded with a full copy of the Blockchain.

The bitcoin computer allows users to mine bitcoin, set up machine-to-machine microtransactions for retail of digital goods and services and develop apps that use the bitcoin protocol, CoinDesk reported.
