In order to analyze and build ‘crypto’ based trading strategies we need to get historical data for Bitcoin and other ‘large-cap’ coins such as Ether, Ripple, Dash, Monero, etc. But also for up and coming coins such as Neo, Stratis, IOTA and many more. In this post I will point you to two solutions:
1. Using simple Python scripts originally posted by QuantAtRisk.com
2. Using QuantShare software and a ready-made downloader.
1. Python scripts:
Get the latest list of cryptocurrencies, sorted by market capitalization from Coinmarketcap.com
Get Daily prices from Cryptocompare.com.
To get intraday data you can take a look at the Crytocompare API and adapt this script.
The last script will create one csv file for each coin. You can then import these files into your own software.
