Bitcoin is an emerging technology which allows two entities to exchange value overt the Internet without trust. Embracing that those entities could well be machines we present a system that allows a sensor to offer its measurement data directly to a world-wide data market. Based on the concept introduced in Noyen et al , we describe a prototypical implementation of the process of exchanging data for electronic cash between a sensor and a requester by leveraging the Bitcoin network and discuss its current limitations.
