Crypto Data
This is a server release, so there is no need for you to update your Excel plugin or download anything. Everything should already be working for you.
With MarketXLS, you can use the name of the exchange at the end of the symbol to get the data from that specific exchange. For example, use BTCUSD:BINANCE to get data from the Binance exchange and ETHUSD: BITMEX to get data from the BitMEX exchange.
However, sometimes, you might find that a crypto token is not listed on an exchange. So, we have developed our own methodology and symbology for exchanges, which we call "DEFAULT.” For example, you can use BTCUSD: DEFAULT to get the default data. Then, our system will automatically determine where that token is listed and return the most appropriate price and analytics.
All cryptos symbols will be using "nameofcrypto:nameofexchange". We are the only ones in the industry to have this kind of a mechanism of getting different cryptos of different exchanges straight to your excel. You can download a list of all cryptos available straight to your excel by going to "Utilities" and "Utilities List" in the dropdown menu. Next, choose "Crypto Currencies,” which will open the whole list of cryptos with their exchanges.
