We strive to use only one exchange code to cover all the instrument classes such as spot, futures and etc. However, due the legacy issues, we might use different exchange codes for one exchange. The following exchanges are the exchanges that have more than one exchange codes, covering different instrument classes.

  • Binance

  • Bybit

  • Huobi

  • Kraken
