Developers Embrace Bitcoin
Bitcoin Pulse, a service that tracks Bitcoin adoption, says it is seeing signs that the digital currency is making inroads with developers. In the last 30 days, Bitcoin mentions on GitHub have increased by 17.8 percent, showing that the currency has momentum. Also, Bitcoin APIs are now the third most popular category on Programmable Web. The site currently has 94 Bitcoin APIs, up from 46 in June.
Signs of developer interest are significant for the young currency because developers are early adopters whose enthusiasm and support—or lack thereof—can make or break new technologies.
