Google has more or less become synonymous with search and there is no denying the fact that Microsoft’s Bing has tried every possible trick in the book yet Google has gone from strength to strength. But finally it seems Bing can take the laurel for becoming the first search engine to offer conversion value for Bitcoin, the much discussed form of open-source currency.

From today onwards, one can head over to and figure out the conversion rate of Bitcoin for e.g. how many Bitcoins make Rs 100 and vice versa. Microsoft has joined hands with company called Coinbase to provide these real-time results of Bitcoin value and its conversion into multiple currencies.

As Bitcoin (the peer-to-peer payment system and digital currency) makes headlines and captures the world’s attention, we thought it was only natural to give you an easy way to track real-time fluctuations,” according to Bing blogpost.

We’ve already seen a rage for Bitcoin globally which has attained massive growth and demand over the past 8 to 10 months. Based on the lines of Bitcoin, an Indian company has formed its own form of currency inspired by goddess Laxmi aka Laxmicoin. According to posts on Laxmicoin’s Twitter page, its launch has been delayed due to “regulatory clarifications” and they hope to have clear guidelines from government soon. 

Addition of Bitcoin currency convertor makes no change to the search engine world which is ruled by Google, the undisputed king and one can expect others to follow Bing’s suit in the coming years.
