BitPredict captured a $20,000 grand prize; the application was developed by two students from Texas A&M. This application manages bitcoin volatility with statistics that uses data from Blockchain.info. These statistics are used in conjunction with Google’s prediction engine to create a 90-95% accurate prize prediction of Bitcoin. A user is able to send and receive with the Blockchain API and set a risk level, which will automatically adjust the account balance of bitcoin and USD depending on the risk level.
