Bi-weekly Newsletter: Introducing Kaiko's Cryptocurrency Data Feed

February 20, 2019

Today, we would like to introduce you to a one-of-a-kind data delivery mechanism. Kaiko is proud to be the only data provider in the industry to have a cloud-based Data Feed for the delivery of flat-files.
While an API or websocket are well-suited for the delivery of low-latency data, we found that these two delivery mechanisms do not always match the use cases of our clients. Many institutional clients require both historical data sets and frequent updates to these data sets, in .csv flat files. Thus, we listened to our client needs and designed a global cloud-based data delivery mechanism to push daily updates of the previous day's market data.
 
Kaiko's cryptocurrency Data Feed allows us to seamlessly synchronise massive datasets to any cloud-based data repository and continuouslysend updates to these datasets.
 
How does Kaiko's Data Feed work?
  1. Select the exchange, currency pair, or data type you are interested in.
  2. Set up a cloud bucket for your preferred data repository (Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Services, Azure, Custom).
  3. Receive a data dump of all historical tradesorderbooks, or aggregates  (OHLCV, VWAP) from the selected exchanges and/or currency pairs. 
  4. Every day at 3:05 UTC, Kaiko's Data Feed will automatically pushan update to these data sets of the previous days market data.
Since 2014, we have put in the effort to integrate with dozens of cryptocurrency exchanges so that you don't have to. With our team of 8 engineers, we work hard to normalize this data and prepare it for distribution. In particular, we prioritize our raw data offerings so that our clients can focus on research, analysis, aggregations, and more.
 
What kinds of data can Kaiko deliver?
