Does Google Finance Do Bitcoin?

Google Finance does not currently offer cryptocurrency prices. You can, however, find the price of Bitcoin on other finance websites and apps.

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries. Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.

NOTE: WARNING: Google Finance does not provide services related to Bitcoin. Investing in Bitcoin is highly speculative and carries substantial risk. Before investing, it is important to understand the risks associated with cryptocurrencies, including the potential for loss of principal, lack of liquidity, and price swings. You should consult with a qualified financial advisor before investing in Bitcoin or any other digital asset.

Bitcoin is unique in that there are a finite number of them: 21 million.

Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services.

As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment.
