Maintenance: We have moved our database

Nov. 30, 2017, 2:04 p.m.

We moved our database to another server. Everything should be done now. Our crawlers are fetching trades of the last hour but this will take some more minutes due to API limitations of the exchanges. We will inform you once we’re up to date.

Performance improved

April 11, 2013, 6:13 p.m.

Jan. 26, 2012, 12:24 a.m.

We have deployed a few changes:

vcxUSD and vcxEUR

We've added a new feature: "Volume pie charts":

"Out of coins"

Sept. 30, 2011, 5:55 p.m.

"Out of coins" was our old 500 - Internal server error page. It's a relict from the time when Bitcoincharts only had a few dozens users. We have changed it to a proper message now.

For the curious: An scheduled update on the frontend servers went wrong because the network connection between testing and production systems went down just so that a single library was not copied correctly while the system thought everything went well. We have changed the script so this should not happen anymore.

New mtgox symbols and b7* hidden

Sept. 2, 2011, 8:46 p.m.

We have added 15 new symbols for mtgox:

Data for Bitcoin7 is currently unavailable. It will be back soon.

Looking for Bitmarket?

Aug. 22, 2011, 12:54 p.m.

We were changing the API requirements for being listed on Bitcoincharts. Unfortunately, we were not able to reach anyone at for a month even though we wrote several emails. The new backend can not support the old API anymore so we have decided to remove any markets (at least temporary) until they support the new API.

This also applies to bitcoin-central, b2c and bitcoinmarket.

New Exchange: FreshBTC

Aug. 11, 2011, 1:25 p.m.

We've added three new symbols. freshPLN, freshUSD and freshEUR
