The community forum has been quiet for awhile. Hope all is well.
Anyway, I don't believe the system is capturing my algo since the go live for the competition.
It seems static & flat, quite possibly because of the external lib for the Hurst exponent.
Can you have a look pls when you get a free moment.

RE: Trading Bitcoin on Weekends
But I want to trade only the BTC Futures. And I want to be able to backtest my BTC Futures algo on Quantiacs.
This change has disrupted all of my BTC Futures algos.
It is not realistic to trade the Bitcoin spot in the real world marketplace:
- In order to start trading Bitcoin spot, investors must first set up a digital wallet with online platforms such as Coinbase or Kracken. This process can be difficult for the non tech-savvy or those unfamiliar with the crypto landscape.
- Account Security Concerns: Web-based cryptocurrency exchanges are potentially more susceptible to technical errors and security concerns than well-established & regulated financial hubs such as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
- Tax Challenges: Due to the nature of cryptocurrency and how it is treated for tax purposes, complications can arise when processing taxes on crypto gains & losses.
It is easier and more realistic to trade the BTC Futures:
Trading BTC futures affords the same ease-of-access as other derivative products from the CME. Existing futures traders can seamlessly start trading BTC futures.
Also you cannot short the Bitcoin currency spot. So a Bitcoin currency spot algo can only go Long.
Please watch this video
You made a change that affects quants who do NOT want a change. Maybe you should think about having both options: BTC Futures and Bitcoin spot.
Please re-instate the BTC Futures also.
Cryptocurrency algos issues
I believe something has gone wrong with the cryptocurrency algos on your Quantiacs system.
The top 30 algos on your Leaderboard are all Futures strategies. Not a single crypto algo is in your top 30. The cryptos have all dropped to the bottom. Several of the backtest Sharpe Ratios for cryptocurrency algos are showing as less than 1 even though they had to score greater than one to get into the competition. Something is not looking right.
Yesterday, I submitted a cryptocurrency algo using the ML VotingClassifier. It had a backtest Sharpe Ratio of 2.41 and made $440M in seven years. This is a copy of the chart when it was accepted to the contest yesterday Sunday:
Today, when I checked it on the Leaderboard, the backtest SR is less than 1. And in my account, it is stating that it is ineligible for the competition even though it was already accepted to the competition with an SR = 2.41 yesterday. And the OS Sharpe is 76.40 for 1 live day. That is just crazy.
Actually, now all of my cryptocurrency algos have a backtest SR of less than 1 even though they were accepted to the competition.
Please have a look.
