    Nvm found out binance doesn't have usd pairing
    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! :)

    @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
    Erhan Abibula
    Woah, that was fast! Thanks again @vcealicu ! :)

    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
    @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.

    @vcealicu I've seen that when querying for price multi (or price multi full) if we add 1 valid coin and the rest are invalid, no error is returned and the response includes only the valid coins.

    eg. https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/pricemultifull?fsyms=BTC&tsyms=USD,LOLZ -> returns that only for BTCUSD and nothing for BTCLOLZ (because it doesn't exist); Wouldn't be better if all pairs are checked first rather than omitting the non-existent ones?

    Vlad Cealicu
    @pfzero it does check them first and remove them before i try to get the data. But it's better for backwards compatibility to return a response for the existing ones rather than returning an error
    Hi guys, thanks for your amazing work here.
    Since yesterday I get a strange error when reading API data via PHP json_decode. After a while and with no real reason I get a syntax error on the JSON string. Are you aware of any issue? "html_entity_decode" is used on the curl result before decoding it.
    What is really strange, is that the timespan is different from time to time - once it takes hours, once only a couple of minute.
    Thanks in advance for your help here!

    Hi, i was wondering if there is any other way to get price list without a limit? the current api https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/pricemulti?fsyms=BTC,ETH&tsyms=USD,EUR has restriction of 300 char for fsyms. But i might have use cases where i want to get price of more currencies, i don't want to call same api multiple time.
    any news with NANO?

    Hello CryptoCompare
    An admin is around?

    Hello CryptoCompare, I just stumbled on the following inconsistency of your API:

    If I go to the homepage (https://www.cryptocompare.com/coins/clam/charts/BTC) I see a CLAM-BTC price of 0.0002614, but when I use the API (current price or historical prices, doesn' t matter) I get with https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/price?fsym=CLAM&tsyms=BTC the result {"BTC":0.0001468}

    Since those two numbers are completely different, whats the problem here? I also checked different markets and none of them has something below 0.0002...
    If I poll historical data I also get most recent prices around 0.0001468... One thing which is weird, when in the result of historical markets I get: "ConversionType":{"type":"multiply","conversionSymbol":"ETH"}, so maybe this is the problem?
