API Access and data format

Historical data format is the same as provided by real-time Bitfinex WebSocket v2 API with addition of local timestamps and since 2020-05-27 also with addition of channel and symbol at the end of each message which allows us providing filtering for the data server-side. If you'd like to work with normalized data format instead (same format for each exchange) see downloadable CSV files or official client libs that perform data normalization client-side.

Tardis-machine is a locally runnable server that exposes API allowing efficiently requesting historical market data for whole time periods in contrast to HTTP API that provides data only in minute by minute slices.
See tardis-machine docs.

Captured real-time channels

General
Bitfinex
See Bitfinex WebSocket API docs providing documentation for each captured channel's format
Click any channel below to see HTTP API response with historical data recorded for it.
    trades
    book (prec=P0, freq=F0, len=100) During data collection integrity of order book incremental updates is being validated using sequence numbers (SEQ_ALL option) provided by real-time feed - in case of detecting missed message WebSocket connection is being restarted.
    raw_book (prec=R0, freq=F0, len=100)
    status
All data collection is performed with TIMESTAMP and SEQ_ALL config flags set.
Since 2020-05-27 each collected Bitfinex real-time data message has appended channel and symbol at the end of array - this allows us providing data filtering via API. Before that date if filters are provided with API request, always all recorded, unfiltered data feed is being returned.
