With the hope to help users have greater control over their trades and provide them with useful insights into their activities on the platform, Bitfinex has disclosed the launch of a new suite of reporting tools.
Bitfinex announced in a blog post on its website that the tools are intended to help users have greater understandings by viewing as much of their account data as they wish, through the removal of requested data limits.
According to Bitfinex, the UI of the latest reporting tools is based on “modern web technology” with a focus on developing the presentation of data and improving responsiveness throughout various user devices.
Developed to be simple and accessible, the recent toolkit allows users to easily and immediately gather an overview of required account data that might be as old as the account itself. Earlier on, this could not be as a result of the presence of requested data limits, however, the latest toolkit eliminates this challenge, allowing Bitfinex users to view or download their as much data as they want on the platform.
A piece from the announcement states:
“As institutions and professional traders enter the digital asset trading space, Bitfinex remains committed to creating the tools required to thoroughly meet their needs. We are of the belief that our suite of tools works to accelerate the rate of global adoption and help facilitate an increasingly mature market.”
The new reporting framework will allow users to work offline, with their activities being recorded on a local database, which gets rid of the need for a live internet connection to be able to work with their account data.
Furthermore, the whole toolkit is about to be changed in an open-source solution that provides the likelihood of customizing tools to fit individual users needs and submitting features.
With the Bitfinex API, the new reporting suite now provides a field wallet added to end-point ‘ledgers’, providing information that recognizes the wallet involved in movements. End-point ‘currencies’ are also added, which offers up a list of available currencies with id and full name. The end-point ‘userInfo’ is present too, bringing up information about the users profile, while end-points ‘accountTrades’, ‘orderHistory’, ‘fundingOfferHistory’, ‘fundingLoanHistory’ and ‘fundingCreditHistory’ have been changed, with a new option to return all the data without filtering by pair/coin when no pair/coin is sent.
Furthermore, the addition with authToken rather than apiKeys allows users to use the same tools locally and on the Bitfinex web platform.
