Bitcoin Trading

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if it was possible to trade on the bitcoin markets?
I saw there was some talk about this roughly a year ago and was wondering if any progress has been made in connecting to the bitcoin exchanges.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike,

Right now we're focused on developing the platform for research, backtest, and live trading of US equities. Once we make this robust, we'll look to adding new data sources and features. We've heard requests to add Bitcoin (as well as options, futures, FX!) and we will examine adding these integrations in the future.

Take a look at these threads that might help you get a head start for bitcoins:

Hi Alisa,

I have just seen some years ago you already had an idea to add Bitcoin data. Has it been enabled or still just a plan?

Thanks,
