FinancialContent Expands Editorial Coverage of Bitcoins

SAN CARLOS, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 22, 2013) - FinancialContent, a leading online provider of business content and stock market data, today announced that it would increase its coverage of Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies.

FinancialContent has already made a free Bitcoin to US Dollar currency exchange rate widget for free on its website. This JavaScript widget allows websites to display the price of Bitcoins.

Online publishers are welcome to retrieve code for this widget on a special Bitcoin to US Dollar widget webpage.

In addition to creating this new widget, FinancialContent will be increasing its editorial coverage of Bitcoins and other peer-to-peer, decentralized digital currencies through its main editorial channel Market Minute.

Bitcoins were introduced in 2008 and gained media attention in 2012 as Internet-based companies began accepting the virtual currency as payment for online services. Since January 1, 2013, the price of Bitcoins has increased 50-fold. With approximately 12 million Bitcoins in circulation, the recent price of $700 per Bitcoin suggests a market cap of more than $8 billion.
