Chat is here to connect you with other traders in the community, whether to share trading ideas or just whatever is on your mind. Chat access is included with every free Cryptowatch account. To start, open the Chat panel from the Utility Belt on the right side of the screen.
Chat is open to anyone with a Cryptowatch account. Sign in or create an account, then open the Chat panel and choose a username — but choose carefully, your username is permanent.
The Chat panel has a number of rooms based on topic and language. Click the room name in the top left (where it says "General" in the image below) to open a drop down of available rooms:
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
No personal attacks, racial slurs, or harassment. Don’t be an asshole.
Moderators can be spotted by the ‘M’ before their name.
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).
Hovering your cursor over a message in chat reveals an in-line menu icon on the right-hand side. Clicking the icon reveals the option to mute. Muting a user only hides their messages from you — other traders using chat can still see their messages.

Calls the price of the asset — must be listed on Kraken
Calls the price of the asset pair — must be listed on Kraken
Calls the price of the asset pair specified by market
