Mint, a personal finance app, is allowing bitcoin owners to track how much their currency is worth using Coinbase, a bitcoin wallet service.
The app also allows users to compare the Bitcoin value with their other financial accounts, giving users a more comprehensive view of their assets.
Mint has 14m users worldwide and allows you to connect to 20,000 different financial accounts, from credit card accounts to loans and investments. Users can view their financial statements in one place to manage their accounts more securely.
Coinbase currently supports more than 870,000 wallets, which is allegedly bigger than the average customer size of many mid-sized banks.
Vince Maniago, Mint's product manager commented on the integration: "There are now 12 million bitcoins in circulation and 60,000 merchants accepting it via Coinbase. We felt like it was something we couldn't ignore anymore, and this is a good time to go out and support the currency as it becomes more legitimate."
