    hi
    is it true that we're limited to only making 1 api call every 10 seconds for the 'coin snapshot' call?
    i noticed that the limit is not actually in effect
    but the docs say that it is

    @vcealicu
    @wh1te_mag1c_twitter we don't really say that in the API docs, we say the data is cached for 10 seconds , the limits are here:
    "RateLimit": {
    "Hour": {
    "Simple": "https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/stats/rate/hour/limit",
    "Info": "Get the rate limits left for you on the histo, price and news paths in the current hour.",
    "CacheDuration": "No Cache"
    },
    "Minute": {
    "Simple": "https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/stats/rate/minute/limit",
    "Info": "Get the rate limits left for you on the histo, price and news paths in the current minute.",
    "CacheDuration": "No Cache"
    },
    "Second": {
    "Simple": "https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/stats/rate/second/limit",
    "Info": "Get the rate limits left for you on the histo, price and news paths in the current second.",
    "CacheDuration": "No Cache"
    }
    },
    you can also find out more about each path but just looking on

    @vcealicu Hi, I think there's a bug with cryptocompare API. For example, IOT's price isn't correct. Check https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/price?fsym=IOTA&tsyms=EUR and you'll get a price around 0.5Eur and IOTA's current price is around 3.22Eur displayed on website

    @vcealicu
    @pfzero IOTA is IOT on our site

    ebtc is listed in my cryptocompare portfolio at $806 but in coinmarketcap it is $0.9425. Which one is correct? I am keen to know because it could mean that I have become an instant millionare.

    Hi CryptoCompare team - we have a site in HU (http://www.bitcoinbazis.hu/) and we like to use your widgets on our site
    We wonder if you could add prices in HUF as well
    And also - we are more than happy to help localizing (at least) the widgets to HU language - Our charting is with TradingView but folks don't really like it -> http://www.bitcoinbazis.hu/arak-adatok/

    @vcealicu
    @BitcoinBazis_twitter i'll add it on Monday

    @BitcoinBazis_twitter
    @vcealicu Hi, thank you very much :)
    Vlad Cealicu
    @vcealicu
    @BitcoinBazis_twitter the reason why we did not have HUF is because we don't have any HUF exchanges apart from LocalBitcoins
    but you can add it yourself in the widget code, replace USD with HUF
    i'm adding it now to the frontend as well
    yer best bet would be the 6 months chart

    something like this

    @BitcoinBazis_twitter
    Hi @vcealicu , thank you very much
    We will add it on the coming weeks
    Albeit not sure if we should list in HUF cos basically it relies on localbitcoins price only...

    Hi @vcealicu ! Thanks for clearing this up. What cryptocurrency is "IOTA" then? :D
    Vlad Cealicu
    @vcealicu
    @pfzero no clue, usually something random on Yobit. We'll prob move the IOTA ticker to MIOTA as that's the proper one
    Bitcoin Bázis
    @BitcoinBazis_twitter
    Hi guys, so we like to add neatly to the main page the ticker http://www.bitcoinbazis.hu/
    But it just looks terrible, and with symbols even worse - may we ask a little help or hint how to make look neat and straight smoothly placed under the menu section? Or if some of you here have greater experience - to suggest a better place to it...? :) Hope I do not ask too much...

    I'm trying to use the websocket streamer api documented here: https://www.cryptocompare.com/api/#-api-web-socket- . It seems the prices that come back are always the last trade price. Is there a way to get streaming bid and ask data?

    quick question: Do you guys what the time delay is for updating the daily history data? Seems that when I make an API call for recent history data close to midnight GMT I get 0 values for the most recent day.

    Hello again @vcealicu, I think the pricing hourly rate limit is "useless" because it can't be reached due to the fact that the minute limit is too low.

    Currently the pricing minute limit is set to 1000 and the hour limit is set to 150,000.

    1,000 * 60 = 60,000 requests/hour at maximum so the 150k request limit can't be reached.

    just wanted you to maybe recheck this again :P. Otherwise, the new api docs are amazing. Thanks for the great work! :)
    Vlad Cealicu
    @vcealicu
    @pfzero yeah, you are correct, i'll update it now to Price: { Hour: 100000, Minute: 2000, Second: 50 },
    @JustinS68621719_twitter yeah, daily data gets updated each 20 minutes so for the first 20 minutes of the day there is no data

    Hello everyone, I have a few questions would love to get answered:
    1. How is the price calculated? Is it always ETH to USD and then to other FIAT? How is the USD to other FIAT calculated? where is it taken from?
    2. When we don't specify a specific exchange, the price is an average of all exchanges?
    3. Can we get ask, bid and last prices?
    Erhan Abibula
    @ErhanAbi
    @LiorRabin_twitter Hi! I've been using cryptocompare api for quite a long time.
    1. The price for a single pair is calculated on average from all the exchanges that support that pair (afaik). So if you have 10 exchanges that support pair "ETH:EUR" then the price will be the average of the last trades for each exchange - ie. Echange 1 - 1€, Exchange 2 - 2€, Exchange 3 - 3€ .. Exchange 10 - 10€, then the price you'll receive via cryptocompare api will be the average of the 10 exchange - 5€; However, if you also set the e (exchange) parameter in the query (and for example you specify &e=Exchange 10) then the price returned will be 10€.
    2. Yes. The price is an average of all exchanges that support the pair asked for. (eg. fsym=ETH&tsym=EUR - average price of all exchanges where the pair ETHEUR is supported)
    3. No, only the last price (cached for 10 seconds). Bid and ask prices (and even last price within a time window of less than 10 seconds) can be queried only via exchange API.
