Coinbase, a crypto-coin wallet hosting service, has acquired Blockr.io, a Slovenian startup also competing in the BitCoin exchange market. Similar to service providers such as Blockchain, Blockr.io and it's API counterpart supply a readable index of parsed crtypocurrencies, displaying daily trends in Bitcoin, Litecoin, Digitalcoin, Quark, Peercoin, and Megacoin.
Coinbase remarked that they plan on keeping the original Blockr.io service up and running, but it is unsure whether it will be indefinitely hosted. It is projected that the technology developed by Blockr.io will be implemented into future iterations of the Coinbase API. As part of the acquisition, Blocker.io’s two co-founders, entrepreneurs Sašo Matojina and Samo Drole, make their way to join the Coinbase team in San Francisco.
