I was under the impression that cryptocurrency prices were set by an exchange's currency volume and buy/sell averages, so what exchanges are used to get the Yahoo finance data with country-specific cryptocurrency prices?


There is a note in the footer under the details for BTC-AUD: Data provided by CryptoCompare

On this page: https://au.finance.yahoo.com/quote/BTC-AUD?p=BTC-AUD

  • Right, but CryptoCompare lists the prices for a number of different exchanges, whereas Amazon lists prices for a currency by country, which doesn't make sense to me. – TQM Feb 4 '18 at 21:52
  • @TQM I suppose Yahoo Finance just makes use of the compiled data provided by CryptoCompare.I suppose there is nothing much more exciting to find out. On this page there is a drop box to choose what currency. It makes sense that Yahoo Finance can just be pulling live data. – Willtech Feb 5 '18 at 10:29
