Tealstreet FAQs

So… what is Tealstreet?

Tealstreet is a trading terminal, journaling service, and bot integration platform. The terminal and trading functionality is the current primary use case of Tealstreet. At the moment, Tealstreet is in pre-beta form which means you might encounter bugs while using it.

The terminal was inspired by BitMex. Presently, Tealstreet supports Bitmex and ByBit accounts with more exchanges to be added very soon. Tealstreet has other features like keyboard shortcuts, a depth chart with multi exchange overlay, order indicators on the depth chart and orderbook, and quick order buttons to help you get the best possible execution price. However, please remember that Tealstreet is still in development and functionality is not fully finished.

*Use Tealstreet at your own risk! There are no guarantees.

Is Tealstreet free to use? Forever?

Tealstreet is free to use right now because it is in pre-beta form. While Tealstreet is in open beta, anyone who creates an account will always have free access. However, some time in the future Tealstreet will not be free (So, sign up now!). There are many great new features planned for Tealstreet (hopefully very soon!) to make it a better and a more complete trading terminal to give traders even more of an edge.


Can I trust Tealstreet?

Before using Tealstreet be sure to read through the terms of service. Sam has worked very hard on the security side of Tealstreet. Security was the first aspect developed for the terminal and the number one priority. The security side is hosted by AWS. User information like API keys are encrypted before they get put in the database. AWS manages master’s keys. If someone were to hack Tealstreet they would not be able to get your master API key. However, nothing is 100%. Sam believes his security is just as good if not better than other crypto services.

Be sure to read through the API guides! ByBit is available here and, a guide for BitMex is available here.
