I wonder if there are any abbreviations/acronyms/codes for exchanges like Cryptsy, Kraken, and Ccex. Similar to abbreviations as seen for coins in Bitcoin = BTC and Litecoin = LTC.

1 Answer 1


No, there are not such codes for Exchanges, like there aren't any codes for different websites. The codes for the different currencies are just for shortening I believe. It's easier anyhow for trading pairs (NMC/BTC instead of Namecoin/Bitcoin)

  • Thanks, but this code i mentioned here is not source code, rather name code for exchanges.

  • For instance Bitcoin is called as btc, Litecoin as ltc, they are cryptocoins. Crypty, Kraken are exchanges, so do they have any code to refer them ?
