Bitfinex Plugin

Bitfinex™ is a Hong Kong based digital currency exchange that supports about 200 crypto currencies and partially free API access. With Zorro S, the Bitfinex API plugin can be used with or without a Bitfinex account; in the latter case only price data and history is available. 

For opening a Bitfinex account, visit https://bitfinex.com/ and apply. Demo accounts are not available - you must really deposit some bitcoin or dollar amount. You can set up the bitcoin symbol and the number of decimals to display in prices in the account list. For acessing your account via API, you will need a public and a private key since all API commands must be hash signed. The steps:

You're now all set to trade with the Bitfinex plugin. The plugin uses API version 1.1 for trading and prices, and API 2.0 for history.
