Ticker for CME bitcoin futures

Hi, I'm new to QuantConnect, and hope for some help!. Can I trade and reference to CME Bitcoin futures? Is there also a documentation/reference source which can list all the tickers used by QuantConnect?

For examples, E-minis are referred to Futures.Indices.SP500EMini, and gold is referred to Futures.Metals.Gold.

futureGC = self.AddFuture(Futures.Metals.Gold)
futureES = self.AddFuture(Futures.Indices.SP500EMini)Thanks for the help!

FYI, after doing some digging, managed to find a way to refer to bitcoin futures:

futureBTC = self.AddSecurity(SecurityType.Future, "BTC", Resolution.Minute)

We have the mapping for the most popular futures contracts in the Futures class:

ES is Futures.Indices.SP500EMini
NQ is Futures.Indices.NASDAQ100EMini

and you can use either to add the futures to your algorithm:

self.AddFuture("ES") # is the same as:
self.AddFuture(Futures.Indices.SP500EMini)

You should be able to find the future by its ticker in the quantconnect.com/data
