Is Capital One Investigating Bitcoin?

Last updated on June 8th, 2014 at 10:17 pm

While Capital One has taken a harsh stance against Bitcoin in the past it now appears that the company is at least investigating Bitcoin.

A new job posting from the Capital One website for a Data Scientist includes working in a lab…

Investigating the impact of new technologies like Google Glass, Leap Motion, smart watches, Bitcoin, and iBeacons on the future of mobile banking and the financial world of tomorrow.

While this is a relatively small blip  regarding Bitcoin it at least indicates that someone at Capital One is at least investigating Bitcoin and likely how to profit from it.

Whether or not the bit about Bitcoin was slipped in by someone working in the lab and slipped by the HR department or whether the company is internally investigating Bitcoin remains to be seen.
