Add Crypto using the Framework


Is it possible to add Crypto currencies to the Framework? Something like the below but working :)


        # Set brokerage to GDAX for cryptos
        self.SetBrokerageModel(BrokerageName.GDAX, AccountType.Cash)
        # Set requested data resolution
        self.UniverseSettings.Resolution = Resolution.Hour
        tickers = ["ETHUSD"]

        symbols = []
        for i in range(len(tickers)):
            symbols.append(Symbol.Create(tickers[i], SecurityType.Crypto))
