Import CoinGecko Cryptocurrency Data into Microsoft Excel

A sample portfolio tracker built using Microsoft Excel with CoinGecko's API

Did you know that you are able to extract data from API into Microsoft Excel using the in-built Power Query feature? CoinGecko’s API is completely free to use, and you can enjoy the full capability of it without needing to code at all.

By the end of this guide, you’ll be able to pull live prices and build a portfolio of your favorite cryptocurrencies directly onto your very own Excel spreadsheet with a bit of elbow grease!

Note: Power Query is currently only available for Windows users and not available for Microsoft Excel on MacOS. For Mac users, you may use the Cryptosheets plugin for Microsoft Excel. For Google Sheet users, you may also refer to our Google Sheets API guide.

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Get these tabs open before the mapping exercise

  • Microsoft Excel: Open a new spreadsheet
  • Web browser: You will be referring to CoinGecko’s API documentation page frequently, so have this page open too: CoinGecko API Documentation.

Step 2: Pulling list of coins from CoinGecko’s API

  • On Microsoft Excel, click on the “Data Tab”. Select “From Web” in the respective menu in the tab.
2.1. Open the Data Tab and select from “From Web”
2.2. Proceed to the CoinGecko Documentation Website to obtain API link query
2.3. Input the queries into the Excel Sheet pop-up box after clicking “From Web”

Step 3: Convert the data into Table format on Power Query Tab

  • Next, some raw data that says “Record” would be loaded in a column onto a Power Query tab. We’ll convert it to a table format before using it by clicking on the “To Table” icon.
3.1 Click “To Table” to convert the data to table format
  • You would need to expand the columns as well in order for the data to be displayed nicely.
3.2 Click on the icon to expand the table. Proceed to select “ok”
  • Once done you should expect to see a table with 3 columns, like so:
3.3 Expanded table

Step 4: Close and Load your data to the excel spreadsheet

  • The data should load in the spreadsheet selected.
  • Select the filter button to sort data in accordance with your preference
4.1. Close and load the table to your excel sheets
4.2.Choose the cell which you wish to load the data to.

Step 5: Click on the Refresh All button to call data from our API to fetch live data

  • The data will load to live prices once you select the “refresh all” button on the Data tab.
5.1 Click on the “Refresh All” button to fetch live data

And that is all there is to pulling data through API – You can easily replicate this across other API endpoints as well. Do check out the CoinGecko API Documentation page, and if you run into any issues – our FAQ section is available for reference.

We hope you find this guide useful! Here is a sample Excel document (.xlsx) that you may download and modify accordingly.

Closing thoughts

Lastly, this guide uses Power Query, which is only available for Windows Microsoft Excel users. For Mac users, your alternatives are to use the Cryptosheets plugin for Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets where we’ve also prepared a guide here!

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!

That said, this is probably more suitable for more advanced work/analysis uses. If you want something quick, easy and syncs across web/mobile app – check out CoinGecko’s Portfolio which works right out of the box complete with charts, transactions tracking, Profit & Loss and more!

    After all, many agencies would gladly take on such a brand, because with a recognizable brand it is always easier to achieve a result.
    As a result, projects like chatroulette, which develop only through digital marketing, have advanced much further over the past ten years than the marketing giants from the 90s.

    In my opinion, the fact that one cryptocurrency has a market cap that is three times greater than the sum of all the others merely indicates that users prefer it due to its practicality. Who cares after that, anyway? None of the existing cryptocurrencies deserve to exist since, in their current state, they cannot resolve all the issues associated with being a form of money. It would probably be preferable to wait for one coin to dominate them all while remaining in the background.
