If you think developers predict the future then there is more reason to believe that Bitcoin is the real deal. The crypto currency is a hit with developers, according to data collected on GitHub by the founders of Bitcoin Pulse, a service recently launched that tracks Bitcoin adoption.
Bitcoin Pulse tracks the data related to Bitcoin on core services such as Coinbase, Coinmap and Github as well as investment services, consumer services and discussion groups. It also shows the latest exchange rates on Mt. Gox, BTC China and services such as Bitstamp.
But it is the tracking the group does about developers that shows why the online currency holds such promise. That is illustrated by the increase in GitHub repositories that mention Bitcoin, according to a blog post by Bit Pulse Co-Founder Flavio Rump that explains how they are tracking Bitcoin through GitHub.
