You’re probably used to waking up in the morning, having your cup of Earl Grey, and checking your favorite charting service for the most up-to-date bitcoin prices. But wait, the Mt. Gox price hasn’t been updated in days. Have they been hacked? Did they give up? Is my charting service broken?
No, no, and no. The answer lies in a technology change Mt. Gox did, switching their API provider to a company called PubNub, who specializes in delivering real-time information to consumers (read all about that here). Unfortunately, that move has broken some things, but it’s only a matter of time before your charting service updates and has the correct information streaming in.
