Mint Adds Coinbase Bitcoin Balances to Investments Dashboard
Mint.com is a free web-based personal financial management service for the US and Canada created by entrepreneur Aaron Patzer and acquired by Intuit in 2009 for $170 million.
Mint is a dashboard to watch all of your investment accounts. The site gathers data from your Fidelity account, your Bank of America account, your credit cards, and even your car loan and mortgage so you can see, at a glance, a single view of your financials and spending.
As Bitcoin is increasing in adoption, and price, it’s important for investors to keep tabs on their Bitcoin holdings. Well, now you can watch your Coinbase balance on Mint.com. Coinbase announced the news on their blog.
“This partnership marks a milestone in the ongoing evolution of bitcoin as Mint becomes the first personal finance and money management tool enabling users to view their bitcoin transactions,” said Coinbase. “We’re proud to serve as Mint’s official wallet for these bitcoin transactions and look forward to seeing continued adoption of bitcoin.”
To add your Coinbase account to Mint, you have to enable your API key and provide it to Mint.
Mint is not the first company to provide this monitoring capability. Venture-backed Bitcoin services company BitGo allows users to monitor all of their Bitcoin balances in one dashboard by entering public Bitcoin addresses.
“BitGo offers Bitcoin portfolio management services for BitGo users. Keep track of all your Bitcoin holdings, even cold storage,” says BitGo’s product description. “Set up email and mobile alerts for activity on any Bitcoin account.”
