30 Day Bitcoin Market Report – October 2015 – Closes 38% Up for Month

This 30 day bitcoin market report summarizes major bitcoin exchange activity primarily by volume for a thirty day period.


This report uses the acronyms BTC and XBT interchangeably.

Wider acceptance of bitcoin becomes possible with a standardized code. ISO 4217 is a standard published by the International Organization for Standardization. They create country and currency codes. “BT” is ISO reserved for the country Bhutan. ISO 3166 determines that no official country code beginning with X will ever be assigned. When X is combined with BT it yields the commercially unique XBT.

Most bitcoin exchanges use the legacy BTC label. Financial markets such as Bloomberg use XBT.

Bitcoin “wash trades”?

Bobby Lee, CEO of bitcoin mining and exchange recently spoke in in the article “BTCC chief Bobby Lee: Bitcoin is not anti-bank, it’s pro-innovation”. Mr. Lee stated:


Mr. Lee’s comments bring into question the volumes reported by two bitcoin exchange giants. A request for an official comment from both exchanges was unanswered at press time.

KittyBitcoin current activity

KittyBitcoin completed its modest website expansion for Latin America. Most of the Spanish language countries in Central and South America are linked to corresponding country pages with ticker prices as available:


It was discovered that the price ticker does not always return a data set for supported currencies, and this was confirmed with their support. Nonetheless kittybitcoin visitors can now compare a wider range of bitcoin currency pairs from Latin America:

Arbitrage Project

The conceptual modelling and exploratory code for the bitcoin arbitrage project continues. It was learned that not all bitcoin wallet addresses may be reached via a direct browser query. One exchange confirms that it scrambles the bitcoin address given to customers for deposit or withdraw. A further half of bitcoin exchange addresses which were tested were not directly available via an http:// curl session. Another alternative is an API route.
