Authentication #

Historical crypto market data endpoints have been made public and require no authentication. However, please authenticate to increase your data rate limit. To do so, simply set the following HTTP headers:


Limiting #

Use the limit query parameter. The value should be in the range 1 - 10000 (endpoints included) with 1000 being the default if unspecified.

Paging #

To support querying long timespans continuously we support paging in our API. If the result you have received contains a next_page_token that is not null there may be more data available in the timeframe you have chosen. Include the token you have received as the page_token query parameter for the next request you make while leaving the other parameters unchanged to continue where the previous response left off.

Ordering #

The results are ordered in ascending order by time.

Timestamps #

The timestamps for trades, quotes, and bars correspond to when a trade was executed or a quote was generated on the exchange.
