The recently released “Bitsneaks” is a project that Bitrefill and NBA Star Spencer Dinwiddie collaborated on in order to release the world’s most high-tech sneaker. The shoes are able to display the live Bitcoin price, block height, and other metrics on a sleek flexible LED-matrix screen. Free cellular data (within 154 countries) is included with the shoe in order to update the Bitcoin metrics.
Dinwiddie stated that he has always strived to be a leader within the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency space. “The opportunity to develop the world’s most high-tech sneaker with Bitrefill has been the experience of a lifetime,” he says.
Founder of Bitrefill Sergej Kotliar explains that in the same way that Bitrefill’s products and services must be better than their competitors, he and his team wanted to offer a sneaker that would put them above giants like Nike.
With a very small team that includes Bitrefill, Davey Taylor (Bitsneaks hardware), tech wizards from TNSID, and Dinwiddie, the group was able to develop a sneaker that pushes the known boundaries of what is possible for wearable tech.
What Is Included?
- One pair of Bitsneak’s sneakers.
- Shoes come with free cellular data in 154 countries.
- Shoebox includes a charger, full node, and a very slow mining rig.
- An app to control the LED-matrix screen.
Another interesting feature for the sneakers is when Bitcoin hits $1 million, the LED-matrix screen will turn purple.
There are confirmed plans to launch more pairs of shoes in the future. These limited-edition Bitsneaks are now available for pre-orders on their website.
