They were even kind enough to add a smilie face for us!

Code:
(MTGOXUSD :)

Well, that's the format for the exchange.  e.g.,   (AAPL :NASDAQ).    But MTGOXUSD has no exchange so it is blank  (MTGOXUSD Smiley

Then clearly it should be (BITCOINUSD :MTGOX) right?

The problem is BTC-e and BitStamp have their own books. Gox has the API (for whatever that's worth) for CNBC to get a direct real-time price that the market is moved by.

Can't wait til this stuff is scrolling on my TV screen and goes blank when Gox goes offline. They are in no way, shape, or form prepared for this.
So really, we just need someone to aggregate the data from all exchanges into an API-like format for places like CNBC to grab.

I see a lot of outlets starting to use bitcoincharts.com, but if CNBC is looking I can create an easily to use way to grab the data.

Just go ahead and do it. I really doubt CNBC will respond in any way, but if it's availible and made public it's very possible they might just go ahead and use it. It would also make it easier for other news outlets to put up a ticker.

If you do it you might want to consider giving away control over it to the Bitcoin Foundation. It would make it seem more official.

Is there any information on what exact api format CNBC and others are expecting?

That's great, but I'm looking forward to see them actually update their data, because I've never seen anything but



on this page.

That didn't last long before they quit updating.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I suspect they will update it whenever bitcoins goes back below 75.51$ (if it ever does)

I mean that I suspect they are happy showing a 39% crash but would be reluctant to show any increase.

It has long existed at BitcoinCharts! Even the weighted USD price exists there!

That's what all of us would be better-off using, instead of constantly quoting and dealing on the bogus gox rate!

Instead, the weighted USD price isn't even shown on the Home page of BitcoinCharts itself! It's like we are all taking gox stupid pills here!  Cheesy

And green +5% look way better than red -40%  Cheesy

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

It's sort of getting updated...

0 volume.

Trade Time = 9:53:00 AM (at least 30 minutes behind).

No chart available.

Come on CNBC... get it together!
