API Resources for Cryptocurrencies

4년 전

As the crypto space becomes more widely adopted, more tools will need to be developed to make things easier on users. I thought it may be helpful to outline a few I’ve come across, with a few descriptions and examples. Please let me know if there are others you prefer and I can add them to the list.



The best API for getting cryptocurrency pricing, OHLC and volume data from multiple exchanges.


Lionshare Capital API


API that powers Lionshare by providing both historical (REST) and realtime time (websocket) cryptocurrency market data. The data is sourced from GDAX, Poloniex, and Coinmarketcap.


CoinMarketCap JSON API


API provided by CoinMarketCap


Cryptocurrencies exchange rates API


Cryptonator provides unique volume of cryptocurrency exchange rates data, which is delivered in easy-to-integrate JSON format via simple HTTPS requests. Prices are updated every 30 seconds, covering 300+ cryptocurrencies across 58 exchanges.




The all-in-one digital currency API. Live streaming bitcoin market & blockchain data


You need an API key to make the requests, but they have a great console on their docs to test out the calls.

Coinbase Digital API


Our API makes it easy to integrate bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum into both new and existing applications. Coinbase’s APIs enable a variety of capabilities; from simply gathering read-only data, to building something that’s never been done before.

Thank you so much for this! I've been messing around with APIs using python, and this just gave me a whole bunch more to try out! Keep it up!

Could there be - at some point - an API to rule then all? Think of combining all blockchains by forcing some kind of (open source) market standard on all blockchain software.


I don't see something like that happening, but I suppose there's always the possibility. Who would "force" that given these are supposed to be decentralized? You may be able to get a few chains on board, but one to "rule them all" is unlikely IMO.

This is something that I was not even aware I needed. Thanks!


I started playing around with them over the weekend. It should be interesting to see what everyone can come up with :)

This is a great contribution chasewest.
I've previously wrote a post on how to use scraping in Python to scrape data.
