Title: QuoteMedia prices for Cryptocurrency
Post by: TopDog on May 18, 2021, 05:17:39 PM
The release notes for version 3.2.4 says:

added daily and historical QuoteMedia pricing for Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency

How does one go about adding Bitcoin (BTC) to the Current Asset Library?  I assume that would be the first step in getting daily prices.

Should there be a Cryptocurrency Security Type?  I've tried Other Investment, but that doesn't seem to be correct.

Thank you.

Yes, you can add using the 'Other Investment' type, and then be sure to use the proper symbol as provided by QuoteMedia for the crypto currency you would like to track.  For example, use the symbol ~BTCUSD  for Bitcoin...
