Why are people looking for historical data on cryptocurrency?

  1. Market Analysis and Research: Traders and investors analyze historical data to identify trends, patterns, and volatility in the cryptocurrency markets.
  2. Algorithmic Trading: Developers and traders use historical data to backtest trading algorithms and strategies. By simulating how these strategies would have performed in the past, they can refine them to improve future performance.
  3. Valuation Models: Analysts use historical data to develop and refine cryptocurrency valuation models.

So, where can I get free data?

I spent some time finding the historical data of cryptocurrencies that I wanted to use to find patterns. There are many offers on the Internet, of course, for pennies, and the price ranges from $99 - $1999 per month.

All services offer access to data through an API that has its limitations. I want to get all historical cryptocurrency data for a specific daily time frame, and this is where some limitations come into play.

Here you can get historical data free in CSV format organized by Exchanges (CEX)

  1. All Data sets
  2. Gemini exchange data
  3. Coinbase exchange data
  4. Kraken exchange data
  5. bitstamp exchange data
  6. Cexio exchange data
  7. Bitfinex exchange data
