CoinDesk has developed a Bitcoin Price Ticker widget that can be embedded for free into your own website or blog.

We are always searching for ways to give people better access to bitcoin information, news, data and prices.

With bitcoin aficionados and entrepreneurs developing new bitcoin sites every day, we felt a price ticker that displayed the Bitcoin Price Index, updated in real-time, would be a useful widget for many people.

The widget displays the current Bitcoin Price Index, today's high and low, and a sparkline showing price movements over the last sixty minutes.

As announced yesterday, Mt. Gox has been dropped from the BPI due to its inability to meet the specified criteria (on account of its systemic withdrawal issues). The BPI team is currently assessing whether alternative bitcoin exchanges meet the criteria and can be included.

Using the Bitcoin Price Ticker widget means you will always be able to display an accurate reference price for bitcoin on your site.

Use the following code to embed the widget (210 x 130px) into your site:

<div id="coindesk-widget"></div>

<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>

The widget is also available in a larger size (300 x 250px, as shown in the image below) by using the following code:

<div id="coindesk-widget" data-size="mpu"></div>

<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
