    I need to add and make calculations off the current value of bitcoin, I can't find in your docs how to do this, is it possible? If I have a REST api how do I use it in the forms?

    This is the data I need to parse from https://api.coindesk.com/v1/bpi/currentprice/USD.json

     

    "bpi":{"USD":{"code":"USD","rate":"1,276.6880","description":"United States Dollar","rate_float":1276.688}}

     

    Thanks.

    It is not currently possible to pull data into the form from an external source.

    For something like that, you would need to use the full source code of your form:
