Access Free Crypto APIs in Google Sheets

There are a huge number of crypto APIs, and virtually all of them offer market 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.

Two very popular crypto APIs are NOT listed below: Binance and CoinGecko. The reason is that both APIs rate limit users of Google Sheets, resulting in a lot of errors. The APIs listed below are a lot more reliable and largely provide the same market data.

    • 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
