Lukka Reference Data

Lukka is offering a “reference data” product that gives you the information you need to handle exchanges differing symbol usage for currencies. For example, it will tell you that when Kraken uses the symbol XBT they really mean bitcoin. This is useful for being able pull trades from an exchange and then hit an API (like Nomics) for the right pricing data where symbols don’t match. Make sense?

So I’m wondering if Nomics has, or is willing to create, something like that.

Hi Bobby,

Yes, we already provide that information. Check out our Markets API:

Here’s an example to see the mappings for Kraken:

https://api.nomics.com/v1/markets?key=2018-09-demo-dont-deploy-b69315e440beb145&exchange=kraken

You can see their market id as well as the Nomics ID for base and quote currencies.
