Recently, both Google Finance and Yahoo Finance added tickers for the price of Bitcoins in USD. Does mint have any plans/options to add something like this?

Google Finance tracks BitCoins through https://www.google.com/finance?q=currency%3Abtc&ei=gC2uVemqHtS8e7PXiuAP

and Yahoo Finance tracks BitCoins through http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=btcusd%3Dx&fr=uh3_finance_web&uhb=uhb2

It would be very useful if Mint also had or at least used one of these tickers to help with tracking the price of BitCoins. Does Mint have any plans to add this type of support?

Hi Tom,

Mint does not have any current plans in the works to support BitCoin in this way, but this is definitely an interesting suggestion. I'll tag this post as a feature request so it gets visibility to our developers. We appreciate your feedback!

Thanks,
Mint Mike

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
