Dear customers,

We just introduced a new WebSocket solution, which will replace our existing WebSocket streaming service.

Our new in-house solution reduces latency by 250-270 milliseconds and significantly increases the speed of pushing order_book messages.

The new WebSocket has been in open beta testing for a month and is now available to all Bitstamp customers.

We recommend that all customers switch to the new WebSocket solution as the old one will no longer be supported after a two-month crossover period. We will let you know before we discontinue support for the existing streaming service.

Click here for instructions on how to connect to our new WebSocket.

More announcements coming soon.

The Bitstamp Team
