- We finished the calculations for daily calculated spot prices using the BTC HLOC pricing sample set we created. Seventy-one percent of the calculated spot prices have a deviation from the Coinbase price of less than one percent. Of those that have a deviation greater than one percent, only three have a sample size (meaning a number of distinct daily HLOC values) greater than 12. There are 1440 possible one minute distinct HLOC values per day. Our deviation percentage from the provided value decreases as we have more distinct HLOC values for a given day. No date with more than 60% of the available distinct values present has a deviation larger than one percent. Of the dates with a deviation larger than one percent, only two dates have more than .8% of the total number of available distinct values. In other words, the calculation method we have devised is extremely accurate if we have a sufficient sample of HLOC values for a given date. Dude, we can’t believe you read all that.
