Bitcoin wallet and security provider BitGo has partnered with TradeBlock, a bitcoin data provider, to integrate their services.
BitGo is a pioneer in the realm of multi-signature security, having launched its enterprise-targeted wallet offerings last year. Its solutions have been adopted by a number of bitcoin exchanges and organizations.
TradeBlock provides in-depth data and analysis tools on Bitcoin trading and mining. The trading and orderbook data from multiple exchanges is aggregated. Similarly, key metrics from the mining network and major pools are gathered and graphically represented. Bitcoin news items from around the web are supplied through a feed. Much of the data is publicly available, while paid professional services are available to registered, pre-approved members. Last summer, the startup secured $2.8 million in funding.

Users of the two platforms will be able to access them simultaneously. Said recently appointed BitGo CEO Mike Belshe:
“The increasing pace and heightened stakes of the crypto currency markets is demanding a modular approach to infrastructure. Gone are the days when a new startup could spend a year building isolated, one-off transactional infrastructure. BitGo and TradeBlock’s solutions together represent the cutting edge of modular, managed infrastructure.”
In the future, the partnership envisions automated connections, remittance and asset exchanges across multiple wallets, with each step of the automated trading process secured by multi-sig technology.
