Important Note: With 95% of clients now using Smart Matching, BGL will be discontinuing the old Transaction Matching screen in May 2019

Glad to see a separate Asset class being set up for Cryptocurrency!

Just curious, will BGL also be making daily pricing information available for any cryptocurrencies so that daily marking to market can be done? Even if it was some of the major ones like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple it would save us heaps of time importing this information ourselves.

Hi @Mat

Thank you for sending through this request.

We have added this to the wishlist.
