The idea of this business experiment must be supported by customers in order to give us financial signals and incentives to further develop and improve the service and help grow overall understanding of the Bitcoin market among users and traders, and thus improve the bitcoin free market experiment itself. Thank you for your trust Regardless of whether you are a guest or a paying member of our site, we value your attention. We think that Bitcoin has value. That is why we started this project. Our project is a business and as an all-new entrepreneurial idea it is an experiment, as it is Bitcoin itself.
What does it mean for you as for users and customers of the business service which is in its early establishment state? It means that from the very beginning you will experience all problems we will have, especially technical. The only excuse we have is that Bitcoin technology itself is in its infancy and we hope for your understanding and generosity. From our side we pledge our time and efforts to provide you with a service more valuable for you than the amount of Bitcoins you spent on it.
Below is a brief explanation of technical details. We decided to focus our efforts on USD exchanges: mtgox. The collector allows us to add new exchanges without technical difficulties. We plan to add non USD exchanges at some point in the future. Trading information is requested from bitcoincharts.
Normally trading data propagates almost instantly as trades are executed. So sometimes parts of the charts are recalculated, resent and redrawn as data for old trades arrived. Currently we display only 24 hours of data with 15 seconds granularity, but we plan to add a 2 months view with 15 minutes granularity soon. Real Time Charts Visualization – Client part The web site is technically a one-page web application – it means we don’t have page reloads so you can switch between charts instantly to compare them. Chart drawing is slow on netbooks, but our measurements show there is space for improvements, so zooming and panning will get faster over time as our service matures.
We see our website as an analytical tool that visualizes trading activity on exchanges. To add details, we distinguish between sides of a trade when it makes sense. This means splitting of market activity into buying and selling and into liquidity supply and liquidity demand. Each pair is calculated depending on predefined trading volume.
