How to view crypto holdings quantity

Currently using self.Securities[symbol].Holdings.Quantity to view how much I am invested per symbol. When I run the algorithm live, the code just returns 0 even though I am currently holding more than 1 for several symbols. In the backtest, self.Securities[symbol].Holdings.Quantity works as expected.  Should I be using something else to view the amount of crypto currencies owned?

Ok, it looks like because cryptos are created with a cash account we need to use the CashBook to get the quantity information.

self.Portfolio.CashBook[symbol].Amount

This works correctly in the live environment


 

self.lookup = {"BTCUSD":"BTC","ETHUSD":"ETH","LTCUSD":"LTC","XRPUSD":"XRP","BCHUSD":"BCH","EOSUSD":"EOS"}

self.Portfolio.CashBook[self.lookup[symbol]].Amount

I recommend taking a look at Eric's course here. It's in C# but should jump-start your crypto development.
