Import CoinGecko Cryptocurrency Data into Google Sheets [2022 Edition]

A tracker and portfolio created in Google Sheets using CoinGecko's API

With over 13,000 cryptocurrencies tracked across 500 exchanges worldwide, CoinGecko is the world’s largest independent crypto data aggregator on a mission to democratize access to cryptocurrency data. Through CoinGecko’s API, you have access to the world’s most comprehensive crypto database to power all of your applications.

In this guide, we’ll share how you can use CoinGecko’s API on Google Sheets and at the end of this guide, you’ll be able to build the following:

  1. Cryptocurrency Portfolio (record & calculate your holdings value)
  2. Build your own list of selected crypto to track prices/volume/market capitalization and more.
  3. Perform analysis on a set of coins (volume changes, price changes etc.)

This guide also bundles together some tips & tricks such that your worksheet will be able to:

  1. Use CoinGecko’s API in an optimized way (1 API call for 250 prices, market cap, volume and more!)
  2. Automatically refresh data so your sheet is always up to date

Your spreadsheet will be a handy & powerful tool you’ll have on hand for your crypto tracking needs. However, this can take a bit of work – if you’re looking for a Portfolio that just works, take a look at CoinGecko’s Portfolio instead for all your tracking needs! Alternatively, if you are looking for a Microsoft Excel guide, we have it prepared here as well!

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Add scripts to your Google Sheets to import data and auto-refresh

Script 1: ImportJSON – This script allows your sheet to import CoinGecko’s API data

  • Open a new Google Sheets (try
  • On the top left menu section, click on “Extension”, then select “Apps Script” and a new tab will open up.
  • In the Apps Script tab, navigate to “< > Editor”
  • Add in a new script using the “+” button
  • Copy and replace everything with the importJSON script from here (it’s a pretty huge script, can’t fit it in here!) 
  • Save and name the script ImportJSON.

Note: The ImportJSON script used here is very versatile – you can import data in many ways and you should definitely play around with it once you’re more familiar!

Script 2: autoRefresh – So your sheet can automatically refresh

  • Same as above, add a new script using the “+” button.
  • Copy and replace everything from below, then save the script as autoRefresh. As the name suggests – this allows you to automatically refreshes your sheet at fixed intervals.
* This function by Vadorequest generates a random number in the "randomNumber" sheet.
* It needs to be triggered with a Google Apps Scripts trigger at
*   - Select project and add trigger
*   - Choose which function to run: triggerAutoRefresh
*   - Select event source: Time-driven
*   - Select type of time based trigger: Minutes timer
*   - Select minute interval: 10 minutes (to avoid too many requests)

// Updates cell A1 in "randomNumber" with a random number
function triggerAutoRefresh() { 
    SpreadsheetApp.getActive().getSheetByName('doNotDelete').getRange(1, 1).setValue(getRandomInt(1, 200));
// Basic Math.random() function
function getRandomInt(min, max) {
    min = Math.ceil(min);
    max = Math.floor(max);
    return Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1)) + min;

Step 2 – Let’s get some auto-refresh going on!

For Script #2 (autoRefresh), we’ll need to instruct Google Sheet to run it automatically. Only two steps here!

First, create a new sheet called “doNotDelete”.

Next, create a Trigger (Google Sheet function) so the autoRefresh script can trigger. To do that:

  • On the top left menu section, click on “Extension”, then select “Apps Script” and a new tab will open up.
  • In the Apps Script tab, navigate to “< > Editor”
  • Set up a new Trigger (bottom right corner) with the following settings:
    • triggerAutoRefresh
    • Time-driven
    • Minutes timer
    • 5 to 10 minutes (anything less might not be useful as results are cached). 

And we’re all set up! Next we’ll start getting the data into your worksheet!

Step 3 – Getting top 500 coin prices (and more) with just two API calls.

In a new worksheet, paste in the following lines:

In cell A1, 


In Cell A252 (copy this, don’t reuse the one on top!),


Note: The formula above for cell A252 includes “noHeaders” as a parameter, so it doesn’t show headers like “Current_price, Market_cap” and so on!

You should expect a list of 500 coins to show up with data that we have entered above, as follows:

  • /name – Coin Name
  • /current price – Coin Price
  • /market_cap – All Market Cap details
  • /price_change – 24h price change
  • /total_volume – 24h trading volume
  • /high_24h and /low_24h – 24h high and low prices

In the next step, we’ll use VLOOKUP to pull out the data that you need.

Step 4 – VLOOKUP to get the prices!

Now you have a table of top 500 coins on CoinGecko that automatically refreshes, the next thing to do is make it work in a table you’d like to! If you are familiar with VLOOKUP, feel free to skip this section.

Here is a brief explainer on VLOOKUP:

  1. Search_key – this is where you say “I want Bitcoin price”
  2. Range – Which table should the formula check for the data?
  3. Index – In that table, which column should the data come from once there is a match?
  4. [is_sorted] – just leave this as 0

For example – to get Bitcoin price, your will want the formula to do something like below:
=VLOOKUP(Bitcoin, our big data table, 2 because Price is 2nd column in Data table, 0)

Continue building your table up by matching it to the appropriate table column number to finish it up.

Outcome of Portfolio

Below is a prepared example of the Portfolio using the methodology above. Make a copy and simply edit the “Name” field (or use the dropdown!) marked in orange and it should automatically change the coin for you. Add more rows and copy all the formulas and you should be set! 

This approach is extremely scalable – you can build a portfolio that uses all of the data that comes from CoinGecko’s API, potentially only 1 call per 250 coins, each with 26 different data points (or more, depending on what you use).

Note: at times you may run into #ERROR when calling for data, it is normal for free API plan due to rate limits – you can try waiting for a little bit and then refreshing the cell data to trigger the API again. There is a short explainer for this right below so read on!

Closing Thoughts

At the end of this guide, you have a worksheet that uses only 2 API calls per 10 minutes and is capable of querying top-500 coins for price, market cap, trading volume and more. However, if you are using this on Google Sheets, there are limitations to it as Google Sheet relies on shared hosting and you may experience rate limit (shows as #ERROR) even when you use very little calls. While this method does not eliminate #ERRORs, it may alleviate it slightly – read this post for more details. 

As you scale up, you will rack up API calls rather quickly and you may find yourself struggling to expand your worksheet beyond a certain point and that is when higher tier plans truly help. For the power users who need something more powerful, we recommend checking out CoinGecko’s API plans here. If you want to learn more, fill in the form below and we will be in touch shortly!

Once again, this is geared towards more advanced work/analysis uses. If you want something quick & easy that’s synced across web/mobile app – check CoinGecko’s Portfolio which works right out of the box complete with charts, transaction tracking, Profit & Loss and more!

Previously: the older, less scalable method for single calls – importJSONsingle formula

In your Google Sheets, go to the tools section and select “<> Script editor”. Add a new script and paste the following codes in:

* Imports JSON data to your spreadsheet
* @param url URL of your JSON data as string
* @param xpath simplified xpath as string
* @customfunction
function IMPORTJSONsingle(url,xpath){

// /rates/EUR
var res = UrlFetchApp.fetch(url);
var content = res.getContentText();
var json = JSON.parse(content);

var patharray = xpath.split(".");

for(var i=0;i<patharray.length;i++){
json = json[patharray[i]];


if(typeof(json) === "undefined"){
return "Node Not Available";
} else if(typeof(json) === "object"){
var tempArr = [];

for(var obj in json){
return tempArr;
} else if(typeof(json) !== "object") {
return json;
return "Error getting data"; 

Save the code and rename it as “ImportJSONsingle”. Close the script editor and return to your spreadsheet. The ImportJSONsingle formula:

=ImportJSONsingle (“[API URL]”,”[JsonPath]”

If you are unfamiliar with JsonPath implementation, you can refer to JsonPath’s github which includes comprehensive explanation on JsonPath. Below are examples of the formulas to obtain Bitcoin data.

Bitcoin price:


Bitcoin market capitalization:


Bitcoin 24 hours volume:


Bitcoin All Time High price:


Bitcoin circulating supply:


Bitcoin historical price on 30th May 2019, 00:00 UTC:


Bitcoin historical market capitalization on 30th May 2019, 00:00 UTC:


Bitcoin historical 24 hours volume on 30th May 2019, 00:00 UTC:


Notice how the importJSONsingle script requires several calls for the same data (price, market cap, volume), while the newer version (used above) can rely on 1 single call for many more datapoints.

    1. I have tried this


      But, the response was:
      Error getting data

        1. When I open my spreadsheet, prices are loading, but quite often I get an #ERROR! Message, with description Exceeded maximum execution time. How can I fix this?

    2. There is a small typo.
      The formula calls ImportJSON but the script is called IMPORTJSON i.e. a caps mismatch. Change to make consistent and it should work.

  1. Hello,
    I was wonder if I could do this in a more efficient way. For example If I’m tracking 100 coins then when I load my spreadsheet I’m doing 100 API calls. Is there a way to do one API call that will go into a tab and I can reference that info for the rest of the spreadsheet info. I’m only pulling the price of the coins.

        1. Yes, you need to pull from the coins/markets api. so for btc and eth you would enter:

          You can enter as many currencies as you want. Then when you import its only 1 call. The easiest way is to use the tools here to look up the correct names of the coins in the database and enter them:
          Use the get coins and search for the correct name to enter in the markets call. some names are old or different from what you would expect

        2. Did someone find a solution. I am also having the same issue. It keeps making several hundreds of calls and many of them fail to load data in the end. I want to be able to make one call download all the data and play with it. Will just keep downloading fresh data at defined intervals

  2. Thanks for sharing this article! Article is nice. very informative.

  4. What happened to the CoinGecko Google Sheets Add-On? I was using it happily for many months, and today it just vanished without trace from my cryptotracking G-Sheet, and there’s no sign of it in the G-Suite Marketplace. Made it super-easy to include price data, without having to include an ImportJSON script!

    1. Same here. I was using this function: =COINGECKO(“BTC/USD”)
      It’s been working for many months and I now get a message saying that this is an unknown function.
      CoinGecko, can you tell us what’s going on?

  5. Gecko team, are you going to fix the add-on?
    Regarding the Jason script, how often the price will refresh – =importJSON(“”,”0.current_price”)?

    1. im also trying to find a way to make it refresh from itself but its not working, if u find the answer please let met know

    2. I got this reply from the support team.

      “The API price is updated on average is 2 minutes. As for google sheet, you’ll need to update it manually or create a script to update it automatically.”

      And currently there’s no reference script for us to write the automatic price update.

  6. I don’t think the CoinGecko Google Sheets Add-On was made by the CoinGecko team — it appears to be a completely separate project:

    A real shame, as it made it super-easy to use the CoinGecko API!

    My guess is that it stopped working due to the CoinGecko API being changed, since the sample Google Sheet linked to in this article also doesn’t work any more, either (prices are from 2019).

  7. Ignore my comment above — seems like the Coingecko Add-On *was* an official Coingecko preoduct after all.

    Which makes it’s disappearance from the Google Marketplace even more mysterious!

    Anyone know how to edit the script in the sample GSheet refresh the values? They’re stuck at 25 September 2019!

  8. How do you get the script to refresh? The data doesn’t change unless I open the script editor and click ‘save’… I have a button with assigned script to run the function IMPORTJSON and although it appears to run the script, the data doesn’t update. Can anyone help?

  9. Same problem here. I was using the Coingecko ADD-ON in my Google Sheet, but it’s not working anymore. Can’t find the add-on anywhere.

    Now my whole Google Sheet is not able to display prices. The function =COINGECKO(“BTC/USD”) was really useful, but now it’s missing.

    If anyone knows an alternative, please let us know.

  10. Great, I was able to import the current price of the coin I’m interested in.

    But now I noticed that the price doesn’t update. I’ve tried waiting, refreshing the web page, and completely closing out of the page and reloading. The only way I can get it to update is to redo the formula in the cell(ie copy/paste) This is kind of redundant and the whole reason I wanted the data pulled from the site in the first place. So that I didn’t have to do any more copy and pasting.

    Am I missing something?

    1. If you’re using the Cryptosheets add-on in Google or Excel try these:

      Just BTC dominance:
      (Excel) =CS.QUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Global”,”_path”,”data.market_cap_percentage”,”_fields”,”btc”)
      (Googlesheets) =CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Global”,”_path”,”data.market_cap_percentage”,”_fields”,”btc”)

      >> List of Top 10 Market Cap w/ Dominance (%) for Each
      (Excel) =TRANSPOSE(CS.QUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Global”,”_path”,”data.market_cap_percentage”))
      (Googlesheets) =TRANSPOSE(CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Global”,”_path”,”data.market_cap_percentage”))

  11. why do some coins you get “error getting data”, and others don’t? I know some don’t have a data on the website, like M Cap, but still happens to some that do?

  12. I’m running the script to run the function IMPORTJSON: what name do I use to retrieve the price for Bitcoin SV? I’ve tried:
    Bitcoin SV

  13. If anyone is having trouble refreshing their rates in Google Sheets you can add an additional parameter that references any cell and that cell can be used to trigger a query of the API.

    Ex. =importJSON(“”,”0.current_price”,A1)

    Now all you need to do is update the A1 cell (any value should work) and it will trigger any API calls that include this cell as an additional parameter.

    1. Excellent Solve! I took your solution one step farther and made “A1” a checkbox so all you need to do is check or uncheck that box and it updates all the calls.

    2. Just a noob questions as I am learning programming right now.

      How can you add a third parameter to the function, if in the script the function only accepts 2 parameters? Thank you, would love to understand this.

  14. What is happening with this GoCrypto (GOC)? I invested in it through Hotbit. The same day hotbit is not showing it, the value is going up. What should I do? Now is showing:

    1 GOC/ETH $0.02093902 1.97% $38 $82 $30
    0.38% about 1 hour ago
    2 TokensNet TokensNet GOC/ETH $0.01942893 – – – $7,698
    96.54% Recently –
    3 GOC/BCH $0.02075875 1.5% $609 $94
    2.88% Recently


  15. Is there a way to reference the ID from a specific cell? For example the formula: =importJSON(“”,”0.current_price”)

    The above references the actual ID in the formula itself (“bitcoin”) where as I want the formula to reference a specific cell where the ID is i.e A1 for example. And then drag that down for 100 coins so I can get the price for 100 coins/IDs by having the formula reference A1,A2,A3,A4 etc. rather than having to manually type in the ID “bitcoin”, “ethereum”, “polkadot” into the formula each time?

    1. If you use the Cryptosheets add-on for Googlesheets, these formulas should work and give you exactly what you’re looking for:

      =CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Simple Price”,”ids”,”bitcoin”,”vs_currencies”,”usd”)

      =CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Simple Price”,”ids”,A1,”vs_currencies”,A2)
      *where A1 = bitcoin and A2 = usd

    2. Nick, did you find a solution to your questions.

      I’ve been trying for the last couple of hours w/o any solution in sight.

      My approach: I’ve created the whole input for importjson in a cell. However when I do importjson(D2). Assume D2 has necessary string to fetch data for bitcoin, it doesn’t work.

      An online search tells me indirect function could be of help, but still, I’m not able to make it work.

      did anyone make it work?

      1. This is what I did (below). It worked but then when I reopened the sheet nothing would update. So I tried using their actual ids… but they won’t refresh without errors either.
        But to reference a certain cell:


        &A1 being the cell it referenced

    3. This is what I did (below). It worked but then when I reopened the sheet nothing would update. So I tried using their actual ids… but they won’t refresh without errors either.
      But to reference a certain cell:


      &A1 being the cell it referenced

  16. Hi CoinGecko Spreadsheet Users!

    I have some great news for all of you and some simple, free solutions to try right now that can resolve basically every recent question/comment on this blog post!

    We have been working with the CoinGecko team to fully integrate the entire Coingecko API into the Cryptosheets Excel & Googlesheets add-ons (see below for instructions to get your exclusive CoinGecko user discount!)

    – All CoinGecko API endpoints are fully integrated, parameterized and searchable inside Excel & Googlesheets using the Cryptosheets add-on
    – Send data directly to your sheets through the side panel query builder and API console
    – Pull data into any cells in your sheets using simple, familiar formulas then refresh them live or at any interval you want
    – Try pre configured sample queries/formulas and explore dedicated support resources, tutorials, videos & quick start templates for every single endpoint

    TIP: just copy + paste the formulas into your spreadsheet… it’s that easy

    >> Googlesheets
    =CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Coins Markets”,”vs_currency”,”usd”)
    =CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Coins Markets”,”vs_currency”,”usd”,”_fields”,”symbol,total_supply,current_price,market_cap”)
    =CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Simple Price”,”ids”,”bitcoin”,”vs_currencies”,”usd”)
    =CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Simple Price”,”ids”,A1,”vs_currencies”,A2) –> where A1 = bitcoin and A2 = usd

    =CSQUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Coins Market Chart”,”vs_currency”,”usd”,”days”,”14″,”id”,”bitcoin”)

    >> Microsoft Excel
    =CS.QUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Coins Markets”,”vs_currency”,”usd”)
    =CS.QUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Coins Markets”,”vs_currency”,”usd”,”_fields”,”symbol,total_supply,current_price,market_cap”)
    =CS.QUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Simple Price”,”ids”,”bitcoin”,”vs_currencies”,”usd”)
    =CS.QUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Simple Price”,”ids”,A1,”vs_currencies”,A2) –> where A1 = bitcoin and A2 = usd

    =CS.QUERYA(“CoinGecko”,”Coins Market Chart”,”vs_currency”,”usd”,”days”,”14″,”id”,”bitcoin”)

  17. Hi is there a way to download a time series into google sheet?
    Tried this:


    and all i got is a series of running numbers. any experts?

    1. I am also trying to do that for the top25 crypto assets. I am not sure what the xpath should be. I always get an “Error” message or “The path doesn’t exist”. I also tried “prices”, but I get no result. If someone has a solution for this, I would kindly ask him to leave a comment.

  18. This is so painful. I just want to code the API myself without depending on any third party add on’s. Why can’t I download all the symbol data in one shot and then use json to parse and read values. IT IS SO INEFFICIENT TO USE URL FOR EACH VALUE MAKING THOUSANDS TO INDIVIDUAL CALLS.

      1. Hi unlikely, what would be the xpath to use with this url? Im trying to get a list of the top 500 cryptocurrencies by marketcap and i have the url already but what xpath do i need to finish the importJSON formula?
        Thanks so much!

  19. Thanks, man.
    Not sure why with importjson I get the message – error getting data.

    Is it happening with others? Any workaround?


  20. Thanks for article. I try to get historical data for many coins and in some cells get “Error getting data”. How can I get historical data without errors?

  21. Hi,
    (and thank you for this great job!)

    I would like to know how the changes concerning the token list are going:
    the procedure does not look automated in case of swap/modif/etc…

    I take the example of the Aave-end today : on CoinGecko, there is the [new] Aave “symb:AAVE” and the [old] Aave “symb:LEND”
    when we use the old ‘ethlend’ ID it redirects us to the [old] and I didn’t see any trace of the new ID in the list for the API.

    Beyond this example (even if I’m very interested in the new Aave ID 😉 ), I’d like to know how the list of this API is updated, because we all know that in the world of cryptos this kind of case is more than frequent…

    Thank you for enlightening me,

  22. Why when i try this it doesn’t work i get a “error getting data” ?


  23. how is =importjson(“”,”0.current_price”)
    the Synthetix price? I can’t find all the price URLs meaning for OMG for example or verge, I have BTC and ETH working just fine. the other ones get an error. I initially thought that SNX would be something like =importjson(“”,”0.current_price”)

  24. Hi…How can we extract data from JSON for a certain time range, like from 1 Dec 2020 to 20 Dec 2020. Kindly help. Thnx.

  25. Any idea how to get this ETH/USD price…
    …to be replaced with the ETH/BTC price? Thx.

  26. Finding “Error getting data” for stats after coming back to the spreadsheet. Worked fine earlier today.

    Anyone find a way to debug? Is this a server issue?

    I’ve used both:
    =importJSON(“” & lower(A2),”0.current_price”)

    Both return the error, as does a random selection of other coins.

    Thanks for anyone who can help!

  27. Hi!

    I have a question. If I want to be able to type in a Coin Symbol (for example BTC) into a cell, and then have another cell return the price for that entry – I understand that I would use:


    BUT I want to be able to type in a NEW COIN and have that cell auto update with the price of the NEW COIN I typed in.

    How would I do this?

    I need to somehow reference the cell where I’m typing in a ticker with the formula for price. I can’t find out how to do that in the formula.


  28. If you are struggling with multiple imports, and some of your data are randomly giving you “error getting data”, it is because there are to many of them in the same time.

    You can correct that by adding delay (500ms) before retry when getting an error.

    In the IMPORTJSON file, just replace this :

    return “Error getting data”;

    By this :

    setTimeout(IMPORTJSON, 500);

    Oh yeah ! Works like a charm now !

      1. what a legend this works thank you so much i was going mad wondering why I was getting errors. This one worked for me instead of the 1st suggestion

      2. Neither of these solved it, instead of “error getting data” I now get just “error” lolol 😡 What else can I try? This is really frustrating and is messing up my table. Would dividing the table into two sheets help?

      3. Hello
        When i put that:

        setTimeout(IMPORTJSON, 500);
        ReferenceError: setTimeout is not defined

        When i put that, it’s telling me:
        ERROR into the Cell

        Any other tips to help ?

    1. ReferenceError: “setTimeout” is not defined. <-this is what I got when I tried your code for setTimeout.

      Another user got this same error. How do I fix this?

      setTimeout(IMPORTJSON, 500);

  29. Maybe it’s the German setup of my PC, but the examples didn’t work for me. Only when I exchanged the comma for a semicolon did the script work!
    =ImportJSON(“”, “0.current_price”)

    =ImportJSON(“”; “0.current_price”)

    1. Hello when i try and confirm my formula, if i open again the comma is always coming back instead of the semicolon
      Any tips mate ?


    2. Thank you very much, this was indeed the problem! I’m also using german google sheets here, changing out the comma to semicolon works perfect!

  30. Does anyone have a tutorial or step by step broken down example of how to build an excel sheet from scratch using this API method? Sorry, do not have experience with inputting code or where

  31. why am i getting “error getting data” only in certain cells when i’m simply copy and pasting a script from above and its working in the other cells?

  32. Hi guys, following problem.
    I use this call.,ethereum,aave,duckdaodime,dlp-duck-token,uniswap,yaxis,wrapped-crescofin,chainlink,swissborg,geyser,bitpanda-ecosystem-token,omisego,bancor&vs_currencies=usd,eur

    Whenever i refresh the data the cells get mixed up. So i cannot make a reference/lookup from this sheet to another because now its BNT price in first place then its link and so on.
    Someone has a solution?

    1. =INDEX(sheetNameHere!cc:cc,MATCH(columnOfCoinname,sheetNameHere!xx:xx,0))
      cc = column in a sheet with current market prices
      xx = column in a sheet with coingecko token names


  33. Works, but wonky. For example pulling about 25 spot prices with no issue, but always have issues with ZIL and MIOTA… sometimes they work, but usually it’s just “Error Loading Data”, which even refreshing doesn’t help.

    I guess we can’t complain for something free.

  34. Is there a way to retrieve the tickers for a coin? I mean, to do the JSON call, one uses for instance “bitcoin”. Is there a way to retrieve its tickers, being “BTC”?

    1. Change the list of fields parsed by ImportJSON to include /symbol:

  35. Does anyone know how to get the highest and lowest value of 7 days.
    something like this:

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi, here an approach for LibreOffice with SERVICEWEB and REGEX.
      The result will be (for exemple in A1): {“bitcoin”:{“usd”:49365}}

      If the SERVICEWEB function is in A1 and you will extract the value in another cell, write this in : =SI(ESTNUM(CHERCHE(CAR(46);REGEX(A1;”[:digit:]{1,}+\.+[:digit:]{1,}”)));SUBSTITUE(REGEX(A1;”[:digit:]{1,}+\.+[:digit:]{1,}”);CAR(46);CAR(44));SI(ESTNUM(CHERCHE(CAR(44);REGEX(A1;”[:digit:]{1,}+\,+[:digit:]{1,}”)));REGEX(A1;”[:digit:]{1,}+\,+[:digit:]{1,}”);REGEX(A1;”[:digit:]{1,}”)))
      This take the digit if you have a point it transform it in , .
      After that take this cleared value in a cell where you can us it for your evaluation.

      Here a some litterature:

      1. Regis Frei,

        Thank you very much for the assistance.
        Is this french? (the second part of your message)
        Do you have this in english for me because it is not working.

        Regarding the first part, when i enter =SERVICEWEB(“”) it gives me a error 501.

          1. The function is WEBSERVICE, not SERVICEWEB. At least in my Calc. The second part of REGIS FREI’s message I don’t understand and did not work for me. Can someone clarify, please?

  36. How do I get the ping? I don’t know what data i need to input in the JsonPath to get the ping of the API

  37. I found it easier too use this script:

    Then simply paste the URL directly for example:
    Where A5 # page number. And change usd to whatever other currency you need. This is done since their is a hard limit of 250 coins. I ended up having several sections 250 at a time. Still messed up sometimes. Would be great if their was a way around this limit of anyone knows.

  38. Is there a way to import xml the circulating supply into google sheets? I’ve been trying to find a way how to but nothing comes to mind. plus how would I be able to load multiple currencies instead of tediously going through each coin and inputting it separately?

  39. This is awesome! Thank you.
    But, I work with a team and would love to have a way to simply share my CG Watchlist with them. Can’t seem to find a share feature on the site. Am I missing it. recently added this feature to their site, whereby I can share any of my watchlists and my team can duplicate it in their CMC account.
    Will CG be doing this soon? Please let me know.
    – Fred

  40. The IMPORTJSON described in this post could be improved by allowing to query a JSONPath for multiple elements.
    For instance, “$[*].current_price”, to retrieve all current prices at once, instead of “0.current_price”, which retrieves only the current price for the first element.
    As a positive side-effect, this allows for far less API calls to CoinGecko API.
    If you are interested, you can copy/paste the content of the script in my example spreadsheet ->

    PS: In this spreadsheet, I am also showing how to send trade orders to Binance directly from Google Sheets.

  41. I was having issues with this, getting a generic “Error”. Turns out it was permissions based. I ran the debug code in Apps Script ( where it asked for my permission as the owner of ‘Untitled Script’. once I granted permission, the error went away.

    hope that helps someone. You’ll have to decide for yourself if giving this script permissions is okay with you

    I would like you to build me a bot that looks at the price once every hour. Then add up a 100 of those numbers for a total. Anyone point me in the right direction before i reinvent the wheel

  43. This works for me (for now, as I only just made it and I haven’t tested to see if it refreshes data well):


    in Column A I list the id names (located here:

    note: for BitTorrent, the id is “bittorrent-2” but I had to use a semi-colon after the “&A#; in order for it to pull the data, otherwise I just kept getting error.

    I’m only interested in knowing my total investment vs my total return, so current price is the only data I need atm.

    1. update: once I reopened the app, none of the prices would update, I just got an “error” message. I had the same issue pulling from coinmarketcap as well.

      So I checked the sample coingecko spreadsheet they provided above … and bitcoin is at $10,000… i saved a copy, reopened and refreshed…. nothing changed… still says $8,000 on first sheet and $10,000 on second. So clearly something doesn’t work correctly with the script

  44. All I want is simple current price data for a few coins. I took the example for bitcoin (=importJSON(“”,”0.current_price”)) and simply switched the coin id from “bitcoin” to “ethereum”, also tried “litecoin”. But nothing works! Error after error. Ive looked up the proper IDs and have no clue why this is so frustrating. It works fine for bitcoin!

  45. I am using ‘=IMPORTXML(“”, “//div[@class=’text-3xl’]”)’ function in a google sheet cell to import current price .. might be helpful for folks only tracking their prices. This refreshes automatically and if not just an f5 would do the trick.

  46. Pretty useless, sometimes it shows the data, next time the same formula gives Error getting data. Moving the formula to another column sometimes does the trick, moving it back sometimes keeps it, sometimes gives the error again.

    1. Confirm, it’s really working awful. But, i my opinion, it’s not script’s benefit, but only coingecko’s API – it’s can’t to handle frequently querries

  47. Hi i am having issues with historical retrievals.

    I am trying this formula “=ImportJSON(“″,”0.market_data.current_price.usd”)”

    and it returns “error getting data”

    This formula is copy and pasted from the API instructions.

    Any ideas on how to fix?

  48. Here is the code that caches USD values and returns from cache:

    var cache = CacheService.getUserCache();

    function IMPORTJSON(coin, element){
    if (coin == null)
    coin = “bitcoin”;
    if (element == null)
    element = “current_price”;
    // /rates/EUR
    var jsonText = cache.get(“coins”);
    if (jsonText === null) {
    //…prepare your fetch
    var res = UrlFetchApp.fetch(“”);
    jsonText = res.getContentText();
    cache.put(“coins”, jsonText);

    Logger.log(“all ok”);
    var data = JSON.parse(jsonText);
    var item = data.find(x => == coin);
    return item[element];
    return “Error getting data”;

  49. Hi i have just set this api up to google sheets, however i am having trouble trying to work out how to refresh the data? the numbers are staying stagnant?

  50. Add a check box on A1, clicking on it will force a refresh to fetch the info. It might help. I still find myself having to click the checkbox around 10 times before the all the results comes back without the “Error getting data” and “#VALUE!” errors.

    try for fetching BTC current price. note the , $A$1 towards the end.

    =importJSON(“”,”0.current_price”, $A$1)

    1. Hi Fernando
      I am trying to follow the instructions but I dont know why, it doenst works for me.
      I even copied the exemple file and it keeps the old data but doesnt update data, and doenst even recognice the function “importJSON”, I did autorice the scrypt but, it doesnt work
      It seems work for many peoble.
      Can you help me ?

  51. I fixed the ‘Error getting data’ problem by just deleting all the formulas and then doing Ctrl+Z.
    Seems to refresh them.

  52. Hi CoinGecko,
    Thanks for making this data available!
    I want to look into historical correlations between FIAT and BTC for a few coins.
    I see mostly tips/data for looking at the data as they are now, but how would I pull data over a range, and are there perhaps datasets I could access/download with say, XRPBTC, over a 2 year period, giving hourly data?
    Thanks in advance.

  53. Is there a way to use this with LibreOffice? I do not want to put all my crypto data online, nor give it to Google.

  59. Apparently has to do with Google deprecating API v3 and move to API v4, security scopes etc., which is due to happen on Aug 2nd.
    However documentation is really lacking.

  61. Sadly this doesn’t work. I get “Error getting data” randomly. I have tried all the suggested solutions and workarounds during the whole afternoon and hit my time stop-loss now 🙁

    It would be really great to take prices from coingecko, since coinmarketcap and other trackers don’t have almost all the coins like coingecko does.

  62. I am really a newbie in this, will I be ok if I just want to grab OHLC for each weekly price bar? It sounds like the major problem is calling on the database too frequently. I’m just using this to track my BTC and ADA for my side project in crypto casinos.

  63. I’m not very good at English, but I’ll do my best.

    This method probably won’t work correctly with the free plan.
    The reason is that Google Apps Script is a server-side script.

    Why can the CoinGecko API aggregate the number of requests per user even though it doesn’t receive an API Key?

    If it doesn’t receive an API key, the number of requests would probably be aggregated by the client’s IP address.
    However, in Google Apps Script, that IP address is likely to be shared by many users.

  64. FYI, here’s how I worked around the problem with Google Sheets getting blocked by CoinGecko due to overuse of their api:

    1. used code above to populate a sheet “Prices” (or, frequently, get an error)

    2. had another scheduled job that copied the Prices to a backup table (SavedPrices), IF there wasn’t an error

    function makeDataBackup() {
    var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActive()
    var source = ss.getSheetByName(‘Prices’).getRange(‘A1:Q501’)
    if (source.getValue() != ‘#ERROR!’) {
    Logger.log(“copying data to ” + source.getWidth() + “w and ” + source.getHeight() + “h”);
    var destinationSheet = ss.getSheetByName(‘SavedPrices’)
    source.copyValuesToRange(destinationSheet, 1, source.getWidth(), 1, source.getHeight())

    3: used iferror() function to fail-over from Prices to SavedPrices. For example:

    (PricesData is actually a Named Data Range that points at the table)

    1. Thank you so much. This saved me hours of headaches. Legend.
      If this helps anyone else, I used your code but for step 3 I changed it to this:


      Which allowed me fill errors/blank cells in an entire sheet with this single line.
      For some reason, this line applies the IFERROR to individual cells even though the Named Data Ranges are for the entire sheets, meaning it ONLY uses the backup sheet’s data on individual error/blank cells and not swapping the entire sheet.

      Hi Michael,
      I had also the parse error with the formula:=ImportJSON(“”,”/name,/current_price,/market_cap,/price_change,/total_volume,/high_24h,/low_24h”,”noTruncate”,doNotDelete!$A$1)

      I’ve changed this to your one to track a individual currency but for me it’s not working when I use this one:

      Is there something that I have to change in the settings or script or something that you know?

      Many thanks for the support in advance!

  67. The workaround I found for the “Error
    Formula parse error.” on `=IMPORTJSON` was to instead use `=IMPORTDATA` for each individual currency I’m attempting to track. Autoupdates hourly and can be updated manually. Example for ETH: `=IMPORTDATA(“”)`

  68. Using the example as shown above, I’m trying to get the last 30 days of Prices using:

    =ImportJSON(“”, “/prices,/market_caps,/history”, “noTruncate”, CryptoData!$A$1)

    The URL is AOK, as I checked it in a browser tab, and my sheet name is CryptoData rather than “doNotDelete”.

    So I think there might be a problem with the “query” part, as I get Error: “Exception… code 429… error code 1015”. However, the original example on this webpage works AOK in my sheet.

    I’m trying to get the data as Date | Price | Volume. Has anyone a suggestion please?

    1. After my hourly Trigger fired, I now have data – the problem must have been the known Google Sheets – Coingecko issue.

      However, I obviously still have a problem with the “query” part of the ImportJSON junction. All the data is in just 2 cells. The first cell has 30 pairs of timestamp & price, all comma delimited, and the second cell has 30 pairs of timestamp & market cap. There is no volume data.

      Can anyone advise what the “query” should look like?

  69. Does anyone know if it is possible to create a refreshing list in google sheets for, for example, bitcoin price, which stores its price every day, obviously combined with autoRefresh script?

  70. Hey I managed to copy 500 coins, but when i want to run autorefresh in scripts it creates error as following:

  75. I have a error with that:
    do you have a idea to solve this error?

  76. Created google sheet, script, trigger, etc. as described here. After closing and reopening the sheet I see a small message that temporarily appears at the top of the sheet saying “saved to drive” which after a few seconds disappears. I am not sure what “saved to drive” means nor to I see coingecko data anywhere in the sheet or on my google drive. The trigger also does not seem to fire. Any help would be appreciated.

  77. This was working for me up until today, and now I’m getting “#ERROR!” for all my queries all day.
    Any ideas what the issue is?
