Market Orders fill almost $10 off when doing crypto paper trading


I’m using Alpaca’s Paper Trading for crypto. When I’m doing a market order on ETHUSD, the coin price is about $2563.65, but when the order is filled, it shows that it filled the order at an average price of $2572. Is there a major Bid-Ask on ETH, or is something broken?

I get the same results when doing a market order from the Alpaca portal page or making a call with the Python SDK.

Thanks for any help!
