Silicon Valley’s death metal Bitcoin volatility alert is now a real thing you can use

One enterprising inidividual has created a replica of the ‘Death Metal Alert’ from season five of Silicon Valley, which alerts the user to Bitcoin’s value movements using the song ‘You Suffer’ by Napalm Death.

A recent episode of the HBO comedy delivered a running joke about the volatility of Bitcoin by torturing its characters with a frequent alert, also demonstrating the emotional ups and downs of the average Bitcoin miner.

In the episode, the song would play whenever Bitcoin’s value dipped below a level that ensured it was efficient to mine.

And now a website building firm in Iceland has set up a website inspired by the storyline – dubbed Bitcoin Volatility – which does the same.
