BTC-E appears to have an API available at https://btc-e.com/api/1/ticker but this only lists the BTC/USD pair data. They also offer pairs of BTC against alternate currencies like Ixcoin and Tenebrix. I've tried the obvious stuff a la https://btc-e.com/api/2/ticker but no dice.

I'll take an API from any other multi-currency exchange as well, really I just need a way to grab price easily from code without having to scrape HTML and deal with regex.

  • I am interested in this, too. Sent a PM yesterday but no answer yet.

    Looks like they finally implemented the /api/#/... stuff for the alternate currencies. As for the number of links, keep asking & answering questions, you get more privileges with more rep, and that includes more links. Right now the automated system is still trying to decide if you're a spammer or not ;) Jan 16, 2012 at 21:20
  • Thank you for the explanation on the privileges. Glad I could help with the information on the API's :)

I didn't find a working API, if all you need is the price then you can just parse their html. I just used these regexes for the min/max prices and averaged them:

<span id='min_price'>(\\d+(?:\\.)\\d+)
<span id='max_price'>(\\d+(?:\\.)\\d+)
