cryptocurrency data?

I'm wondering if Q has any plans/interest in offering cryptocurrency data? It wouldn't be for trading directly, but as a novel data source for constructing exploring and constructing alpha factors. Or maybe you already have it (e.g Quandl)?

I know TradingView can pull crypto data from Quandl so the API definitely already exists. Would love to see a Quantopian example on how one can pull crypto data from Quandl.

We don't have any immediate plans to add cryptocurrency data. There are many possible sources of the data that can be brought in using Fetcher, or uploaded to the research environment.

If there is a sense from those studies that the cryptocurrency data has a relationship with US equities or futures, I'm sure that would move the data source up the priority list for native integration.
