Discrepancy between bitcoin prices


#1

In the Bisq client, it says “Market price by BitcoinAverage”

At the time of writing this post, the bisq client market price is BTC/CAD:5599.88.
Going to the BitcoinAverage site shows 5189.18 for CAD.
Hovering over the bisq price shows the latest price was only 1 minute ago.

Why the difference?


#2

BitcoinAverage provides 2 prices: global price and currency markets.
See https://bitcoinaverage.com/en/currency-markets/btc-to-cad
Bisq uses currency markets.

Thanks Homard!
Didn’t realize there could be such a huge difference.
