Hello GnuCash developers,

I'm one of the Finance::Quote contributers. There are now a few stable 
APIs available to get pricing information for Crypto-Currencies. One of 
them already used in F::Q for physical currencies, AlphaVantage, is even 
https://www.alphavantage.co/documentation/#crypto-exchange) call for 
both. Which would make it relatively easy to incorporate into 
Finance:Quote's currency modules and treat them as currency rather than 
treating crypto more like securities.

We are wondering what the GnuCash roadmap is regarding digital 
currencies? While they are not assigned ISO 3166 or 4217 codes, so far 
the identifiers for crypto (BTC, ETH, XLM as examples) have not 
conflicted with existing physical currencies.

Perhaps we can start a discussion between the two teams. On this email 
list or maybe the Finance-Quote-Devel 
email list?

Thanks for your time.
