Algorithm Framework for cash / crypto accounts

Hi all, as a first post on the forum a quick thanks to the creators of Quant Connect for this platform. Curious if anyone has a workaround for the account type resriction on cash accounts? I'm getting this error message:
"These models are currently unsuitable for Cash Modeled brokerages (e.g. GDAX) and may result in unexpected trades. To prevent possible user error we've restricted them to Margin trading. You can select margin account types with SetBrokerage( ... AccountType.Margin)"
 

Update Backtest







Hey Derek, it was a tricky decision but as each crypto trade needs to be calculated manually (because of conflict with Cashbook "Holdings"; vs Virtual Pair "Holdings") we couldn't write automated execution models.

Long story short; yes you can use the framework, but you'll need to write custom crypto models from scratch.
