Kaiko Partners with Shrimpy - Historical Cryptocurrency Market Data


Historical crypto exchange market data has long been a concern for application developers and active traders. To design robust trading strategies, it’s important to first understand how a strategy has performed over historical data sets. This process is called “backtesting”.

Backtesting isn’t the only reason access to historical market data is important. Everything from charting prices to analyzing historical trends requires detailed historical data.

With limited options, many developers have turned to services like CoinMarketCap. Unfortunately, this meant developers were over paying for low quality data.

Instead of receiving exchange specific data which could be used for detailed analysis of cryptocurrencies, developers instead got aggregated data which wildly differed from actual exchange data. Making this data unusable for detailed analysis.

In an effort to bring precise historical data to developers and traders, Shrimpy has partnered with Kaiko for the support of extensive historical exchange data. Every trade carefully tracked on each individual exchange while also storing 1-minute snapshots of asset-specific order books. The result is one of the most comprehensive sets of data available in the market today.

Rolling this data into the Shrimpy Developer APIs means billions of historical data points will be at the tip of your fingers for rapid integration into your trading applications, investment platforms, or analytical tools.

Access data from the specific time periods you desire, examine strategies stretching over periods as far back as 2011, and keep up to date with our live data websockets.
