"Volatility makes money"

Reviewed by / Oct 21, 2013

Bitcoin Paranoid shows the current Bitcoin value in different currency in the notification bar

You have some bitcoins, right? Then you know how volatile that Internet currency can be. The best way to secure your deposits in bitcoins and even make some money is knowing how its value evolve. And the best way to keep you up-to-date about it is Bitcoin Paranoid.

It shows the exchange value of Bitcoin for up to 25 currencies. Choose the one you prefer and set how you want to be notified where a change comes up. Thus, form settings you can start/stop notifications, set the interval update (10s, 1min, 15min, 1h) and the data sources of information (Mt.Gox, btc-e and bitstamp). In addition, you can set an alarm for value checkpoints or differential percentage and assign sound, vibration and more aggressive alert like the "annoying mode".

In a nutshell, Bitcoin Paranoid is a simple yet helpful app to keep up-to-date about the value change of the most-known Internet currency. A must-have if you have a respectable Bit-bankroll.

Developer's original description available here
This app shows the current Bitcoin value in the notification bar.

Now we do support alarm! :)

If you "bitcoin paranoid" this app is for you. This is NOT a widget, nor is it a standard app. This app starts a service that keeps the latest Bitcoin value in the *notification bar*.

You can tap the notification and disable the service at any time. But if you are a Bitcoin addict, you probably won't do that.

Please, give us an idea or request in:

The app supports these refresh intervals:
* 10s - paranoia mode
* 1 min - crazy mode
* 15 min - normal mode
* 1h - economic mode

Data souce information:
* Bitstamp (Slovenia)
* btc-e (Russia)
* Mercado Bitcoin (Brazil)
* BTC China (China)
* Weighted 24h (World)
* Coinbase (USA)
* (Germany)
* CampBX (USA)


Thanks so much! Enjoy!

    Software still works great, and with Gox now being a dead exchange the removal of it was the right action. Would love to see BitBargin (UK) added!
