On to this week's release:With over 3,822 markets and multiple ways to visualize all of them (Charts, Correlations, Asset Pages, etc), Cryptowatch was in need of a better navigation to streamline access to every aspect of the tool.

Our new navigation focuses on the quick links you need, with a dropdown on the left that will fill over time with more information and products, and a dropdown on the right for account-related data like Portfolio, User Guide and API Access.

You’ll also find a Search bar at the top of every page to navigate to markets pages, asset pages, and lists of markets filtered by exchanges. Use CTRL+K on Windows/Linux and CMD+K on Mac to start typing in Search.

WebSocket API: Info, Usage Tracking, Easier Access

A few months ago, we released a WebSocket API that streams trades and orderbooks from markets at every exchange on the platform. Today, we launch a few updates aimed at improving access and monitoring for you.
  • What is the Websocket API?
    • We built an informational page with live code at the top to show you what it can do: check it out here.
  • How can I try out the API?
    • Previously, you needed to be on a Pro plan to access the API. Now you can try the API with 5GB of data a month at our Basic plan, which is only $15/month after a 14 day free trial. That’s enough data to stream trades and order books from 1-2 high volume markets.
  • How can I monitor my usage?
    • The API Access page in your Account settings now has monitoring of your usage during the current month, and you’ll receive email updates when you near your limit.
