Free Crypto APIs for Google Sheets

There are a huge number of crypto APIs, and virtually all of them offer public crypto data for free through their public endpoints.

This article lists the top crypto APIs accessed by users of the API Connector extension for Sheets, along with the type of authentication they require. For Open APIs (those with no authorization requirements) a sample URL is provided so you can click the URL and see the results in your browser.

This list refers to publicly available data. Private data, e.g. your own transaction history, always requires authentication.

  2. Hi !, Where can I looking for the meaning of each item ['symbol', 'priceChange', 'priceChangePercent', 'weightedAvgPrice', 'prevClosePrice', 'lastPrice', 'lastQty', 'bidPrice', 'bidQty', 'askPrice', 'askQty', 'openPrice', 'highPrice', 'lowPrice', 'volume', 'quoteVolume', 'openTime', 'closeTime', 'firstId', 'lastId', 'count']


    • That sounds like the list of metrics sent back by Binance's ticker endpoint, is that right? If so, I don't think they really define them in their documentation but they're pretty standard metrics so you can Google them for more info. Or, here's a quick list of definitions if it helps:
      symbol: the trading pair, e.g. "BTCUSDT"
      priceChange: 24-hour price change
      priceChangePercent: 24-hour price change percentage
      weightedAvgPrice: weighted average price
      lastPrice: last transaction price
      lastQty: The last transaction amount
      openPrice: The price of the first transaction within 24 hours
      highPrice:24-hour highest price
      lowPrice: 24-hour lowest price
      volume: 24-hour trading volume
      quoteVolume: 24-hour turnover
      openTime: The time when the first transaction occurred within 24 hours
      closeTime:The time when the last transaction occurred within 24 hours
      firstId:first transaction id
      lastId:last transaction id
      count:number of transactions

  3. Hi, is there a way to switch out the request from the one with coingecko, so I can get an array of values? Tried the coinbase one but its only 1 coin at a time

    • Coinbase is one of the simplest APIs, pretty much any other crypto API will let you fetch data for more than one coin at a time. I like CoinMarketCap, or CoinPaprika is great too if you don’t want to get a key.

  4. Hi Ana
    My name is Wanit, a MSc student at Anglia Ruskin University. I need a csv or json of all coins and their daily or weekly historical data strictly for research.
    Where/how do you think I can get this?

    • I can't say for sure it doesn't exist, but I've never seen anything like that. From what I've seen, APIs only provide historical data for one coin or one date at a time, it would be a huge data set (too big for Sheets anyway) if it contained both daily/weekly historical data and all ~20K coins at once. For example, you could use CoinMarketCap's (paid) /ListingsHistorical endpoint and make the following API call: to return the price of 5000 coins on 2013-12-31. Or you could get historical data for one coin at a time (as a csv download) from

      • You could just run a full node for a bit as all the history of the block chain is, well, by design, on the blockchain. Look at Google Cloud Platform. They have a ready build Binance server VM you can spin up.

  5. Hi Ana,
    I've been searching for a way to get crypto price at a specific time of sale for each of my buy and sell transactions. I have a sheet that contains all transactions including the date/time of the transaction, the token symbol, and the amount of transaction and I would like to add a new column that indicates the price of the crypto token at that date/time. Would you please advise to a good API for this purpose and advise how to set it up in API Connector? Ideally it would be a function that reads the time (e.g. UTC), token (e.g BTC), and currency (e.g. USD) columns in the same row of the spreadsheet. My preference is to use data that is accurate down to the minute instead of a daily average if possible. It is ok if I have to pay a reasonable fee for an API key to get this information. Thank you!
