Whether or not you think bitcoin is the future of currency or a fool's investment, the crypto-currency is still attracting attention, and the vaunted Bloomberg business terminal will begin tracking its price Wednesday, said Bloomberg.

The company says that this isn't an endorsement, and that people will still not be able to trade the currency via the terminal. But general interest among the public has led the company to follow bitcoin, the company said.
