Bittrex Plugin

Bittrex™ is a US based digital currency exchange that supports about 200 crypto currencies and partially free API access. With Zorro S, the Bittrex API plugin can be used with or without a Bittrex account; in the latter case only price data is available. Price history is restricted to a few minutes, and currently not used by the Bittrex plugin.

For opening a Bittrex account, visit https://bittrex.com/ and apply. Demo accounts are not available - you must really deposit some bitcoin 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 Bittrex plugin. The plugin uses API version 1.1.

User Bittrex API key, or empty for accessing live prices only
Password Bittrex Secret, or empty for accessing live prices only

Bittrex asset symbols

Bittrex requires symbols in the form BTC-XXX, where BTC is the account currency and XXX the currency to trade (the other way around than normal forex pair symbols). Currency pairs in the form XXX/BTC are automatically converted, otherwise the symbol must be entered in the symbol column in the asset list. An asset list AssetsBittrex.csv with about 100 main cryto currencies is included. A list of available assets can be retrieved through the URL https://bittrex.com/api/v1.1/public/getcurrencies.

Supported broker commands

The Bittrex plugin supports the brokerCommand function with the following commands:

More commands, f.i. for retrieving order book data, can be implemented on user request.
