    Bitcoin is not a security so it is not on Quicken's service providers list. You can manually create it as a security for Bitcoin (BTC) and download the prices from Yahoo Finance as a CSV file and import them into Quicken though....

    To be more specific setup the Security manually as Other (since Quicken does not have a security type called Cryptocurrency) and enter the security name as The NYSE Bitcoin Index

    Thank you SpeedDemon. That appears to work! Apparently the symbol for "The NYSE Bitcoin Index" is INDEX:NYXBT and not BTC

    Indeed - I have been using that for 5 years in Quicken. Just wish I could find something for the other cryptos as well. Quicken has missed the boat on this. I hear NYSE or NASDAQ is working on Indices for all the major cryptos.
