New Features Added to DPP DataStreams

Taking further control of the crypto market

In September we launched DPP DataStreams — empowering traders and enterprise users to take control of the crypto market with comprehensive and consolidated data. DataStreams not only marked the first of five services that will be available on the DPP Platform but also provided traders with access to market-leading tools and crypto data through a single, easy-to-use API.

Today, we’re proud to take the next major step and announce the first feature update to DataStreams. As of December 11, users will have access to additional technical indicators, indices, and the new Market Spread and Message of the Day features. Let’s take a closer look at these new features and updates.

Market Spread

Find the best arbitrage opportunities with the new Market Spread feature

The new Market Spread feature provides traders with an overview of the best arbitrage opportunities per pair, live streaming 45 pairs with the largest market spreads — providing insight and opportunity for arbitrage and showcasing just one of the use-cases for this new feature. Additional features will be added over time, including searchable arbitrage opportunities per pair. This route is now public and is available at: https://api.dapowerplay.com/api/v1/spread.
