Bank of America, the second largest bank in the U.S., introduced a new API on Tuesday for its corporate treasury customers. Using the API, these customers can access their banking information and perform real-time transactions. The bank believes that it will improve its ability to collaborate.
Developers are definitely worth their weight in gold. The Royal Canadian Mint has introduced a digital currency called MintChip and has thrown open a Developer Challenge. The challenge wants developers to create digital payment solutions using the MintChip API and the best applications stand to win gold. Yes, you read that right, actual physical gold.
