Setting up Cryptowatch
Extensibility and Community

Chat with traders

Talk smack and chat with fellow Cryptowatch traders using the trollbox. Who knows, you might even learn something!

Chat is here to connect you with other traders in the community, whether to share trading ideas or just whatever is on your mind. Trollbox access is included with every free Cryptowatch account. To open start chatting, open the Trollbox panel from the Utility Belt on the right side of the screen.

The Trollbox can be opened using the chat icon in the Utility Belt (right).

How do I join the chat?

Chat is open to anyone with a Cryptowatch account.

Open the chat box and choose a username — but choose carefully, your username is permanent.

Yes — your username is permanent.

Changing chat rooms

The Trollbox has a number of chat rooms based on topic and language. Click the room name in the top left (where it says "Trollbox" in the image below) to open a drop down of available rooms:

What’s not allowed?

We trust you, but our developers made us put a few rules in here anyway:

  • Messages can be up to 300 characters in length. Character countdown is shown on the right in the message box.

  • Messages will be throttled to 1 per second per user.

  • You can’t change your username

  • Bad behavior will result in bans

  • No advertising or solicitations

  • Please write in english

  • No personal attacks, racial slurs, or harassment. Don’t be an asshole.

Moderators can be spotted by the ‘M’ before their name.

What can I do with chat?

Share your market opinions, life thoughts and rekt positions. As long as you keep your chats civil, we’ll let you keep opining to the Cryptowatch community. We’re counting on you to help us make this a thriving place to hang out. Drop some emojis, get help with the slash command /help, and shoot the shit(coins).

Hit Ctrl +' (Cmd +' on a Mac) to open and close the chat window.

Use the infobot to check prices

You summon price info crypto and non-crypto assets using the infobot: type !price then the asset pair to pull price data. Eg. !price BTC USD

Share chart snapshots

Need to prove a point? You can share your analysis with other traders using the snapshot button in the top-right of the price chart window. All of your overlays and drawings are saved in the snapshot:

Find the snapshot button between the fullscreen and Analysis t

Share custom themes

Did you create a cool theme? You can share it with everyone in the trollbox with a few clicks. Everyone in the chat box has the option to copy that theme to their clipboard, or apply it instantly.

Open the settings menu in the top-right of the page. In the Theme section, select the theme you want to share and click copy. This one is called "mechwarrior":

Maybe it should be called "ketchup and mustard".

Clicking "copy" adds the hex values for the colors in your theme to your clipboard:

Find the codes for your theme in the settings menu, top-right of the page.

Paste the codes in the chat box and hit send. You will see something similar to this:
