I appreciate your input. Again, I recognize that there are plenty of other ways to track this information – which I had previously deployed. My initial comment was to highlight the issue and make the Coda developers aware that at least one person is expecting a level of precision that has been available to micro-computers for over 30 years.
Your use case isn’t the same as mine. We interface with the Coinbase API and have people comparing numbers in our Docs with the Coinbase website (which also displays to 8 decimal places).
It would be useful to me if I didn’t have to make mathematical conversions considering the fact that the Coinbase API transmits precision to 8 decimal places and it’s simply not acceptable that an app, Coda, that considers itself a spreadsheet or light database replacement can’t handle that level of precision.
That was my point. I wasn’t asking for a solution. I was making a point: Coda should have never considered that 6 decimal places is sufficient while also claiming to be a smart spreadsheet or whatever their marketing material is trying to promote themselves to be.
