BitListen - Bitcoin Transaction Visualizer

Current version hosted at Project formerly known as "Listen to Bitcoin" ( has been sold.)

Realtime Bitcoin transaction visualizer written in HTML/Javascript. See and hear new transactions and blocks as they propagate through the Bitcoin Network.


The project is built and ready-to-go. If you change any of the javascript, you will need to re-build the bitlisten.min.js file using Grunt. If you haven't used Grunt before, here is a short tutorial:

  1. Install Node.js.

  2. Install grunt-cli using sudo npm install -g grunt-cli.

  3. Cd into the project directory and run npm install to install the proper Grunt version and dependencies for this project.

  4. Run grunt to build BitListen. Alternatively, run grunt watch to build BitListen, host it at http://localhost:8000, and watch for and rebuild changes in the source files.

The compiled/minified script will be output to bitlisten.min.js.
