Can't get crypto data from

Hi everyone, I have a live Alpaca account and trying to get crypto data from the API. I can query stock tickers fine, but once I try X:BTCUSD or other crypto tickers, I get a 403 forbidden.

It was my understanding using api was free for data if using an Alpaca live funded account.

Any help is much appreciated.

I noticed that as well when I tried to retrieve it too. Idk what is going on since they say the API for it is online

Alpaca subscribers only have access to the Polygon reference and stock endpoints. I confirmed this with Jack at polygon.
