Is Tealstreet free to use?
Tealstreet is free to use. We make money through deals with the exchange. This is at no extra cost to you, because it works similar to a referral link. This is how all crypto trading terminals work, although many charge their users a monthly fee on top of that. At Tealstreet, we believe if we we provide good free trading tools to our traders, then we will both reap the rewards through shared user & Tealstreet growth without having to charge our users anything extra. It's a positive feedback loop.
Can I trust Tealstreet?
The Tealstreet team has worked very hard on the security side of things. 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. In addition, a second layer of security was added in the form of End to End API User Encryption. The Tealstreet team believes that the security of the terminal is just as good if not better than other crypto services. Before using Tealstreet be sure to read through the terms of service.

I am getting an error downloading updates it mentions an objects.githubusercontent.com?
This is something that github does on their end if a download takes too long it expires the internal download session which causes this error to pop up. It essentially means the download took to long or was too slow. It's suggested that you close the popup, close Tealstreet, and turn off any downloads or streams you may have, then re-launch Tealstreet and try again.
- You can also goto the downloads page and download the latest version manually that way.
I am trying to link api to Bybit Testnet and I keep getting an error about IP address being unbound?
