Python3 wrapper to query cryptocurrency prices (and more) using the CryptoCompare API.

Install

pip3 install cryptocompare

Usage

import cryptocompare

API Key

If you have an API key, you can either set it as environment variable CRYPTOCOMPARE_API_KEY or set it manually with:

cryptocompare.cryptocompare._set_api_key_parameter(KEY_HERE)

Coin List

cryptocompare.get_coin_list(format=False)
# ...
# },
# 'BTC': {
#  'Id': '1182'
#  'Url': '/coins/btc/overview'
#  'ImageUrl': '/media/19633/btc.png'
#  'Name': 'BTC'
#  'CoinName': 'Bitcoin'
#  'FullName': 'Bitcoin (BTC)'
#  'Algorithm': 'SHA256'
#  'ProofType': 'PoW'
#  'FullyPremined': '0'
#  'TotalCoinSupply': '21000000'
#  'PreMinedValue': 'N/A'
#  'TotalCoinsFreeFloat': 'N/A'
#  'SortOrder': '1'
# },
# ...

If format is True, the coin list is returned as Python list, containing only the abbreviations (like BTC).

Price

cryptocompare.get_price('BTC')
# or
cryptocompare.get_price('BTC', currency='USD', full=True)
# or
cryptocompare.get_price(['BTC', 'ETH'], ['EUR', 'GBP'])

# {'BTC': {'EUR': 3709.04, 'GBP': 3354.78},
#  'ETH': {'EUR': 258.1, 'GBP': 241.25}}

Historical Prices

# pass either datetime or time instance
cryptocompare.get_historical_price('XMR', timestamp=datetime.datetime(2017,6,6), exchange='CCCAGG')
# or
cryptocompare.get_historical_price('XMR', 'EUR', datetime.datetime(2017,6,6))

# {'XMR': {'EUR': 43.05}}

Day

cryptocompare.get_historical_price_day('BTC', currency='EUR')
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_day('BTC', currency='EUR', limit=30)
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_day('BTC', 'EUR', limit=24, exchange='CCCAGG', toTs=datetime.datetime(2019,6,6))
# or
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_day('BTC', 'EUR', limit=24, exchange='CCCAGG', toTs=datetime.datetime(1559815200))

Hour

cryptocompare.get_historical_price_hour('BTC', currency='EUR')
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_hour('BTC', currency='EUR', limit=24)
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_hour('BTC', 'EUR', limit=24, exchange='CCCAGG')
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_hour('BTC', 'EUR', limit=24, exchange='CCCAGG', toTs=datetime.datetime(2019,6,6,12))
# or
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_hour('BTC', 'EUR', limit=24, exchange='CCCAGG', toTs=datetime.datetime(1559815200))

Minute

cryptocompare.get_historical_price_minute('BTC', currency='EUR')
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_minute('BTC', currency='EUR', limit=1440)
cryptocompare.get_historical_price_minute('BTC', 'EUR', limit=24, exchange='CCCAGG', toTs=datetime.datetime.now())

Average

cryptocompare.get_avg('BTC', currency='EUR', exchange='Kraken')
# {
# 'MARKET': 'CUSTOMAGG',
# 'FROMSYMBOL': 'BTC',
# 'TOSYMBOL': 'EUR',
# 'FLAGS': 0,

# }

Exchanges

cryptocompare.get_exchanges()

Pairs

cryptocompare.get_pairs()
pairs = cryptocompare.get_pairs(exchange='Kraken')

Developing

Tests run assuming you have an API key, otherwise they will error due to rate limiting. Install the dev dependencies and run the tests:

pip3 install -r requirements.txt
python3 -m pytest
