Microsoft Adds Bitcoin Currency Conversion To Bing Search Engine

/ 3 years ago


The controversial Bitcoin story takes another turn as software giant, Microsoft, adds Bitcoin currency conversion support to its Bing search engine. Bing is partnering up with Coinbase to provide currency conversion capabilities in Bing that allow you to convert major fiat currencies to and from Bitcoin. So if you’re interested in seeing the (currently declining) value of your Bitcoin portfolio then you can now do so with the help of Bing.

On a related note we wonder how long it will be before Google makes a similar move. I use Google all the time for converting prices between USD, GBP and Euros but with more and more retailers starting to accept Bitcoins it might start to make sense for Google to offer similar functionality.
