I'm looking for a well documented, easy to use API that provides data on the majority of cryptocurrencies. That data should include the 1 hr, 24hr, and 7 day price changes, as well as the entire history of the volume, and price for each crypto. I've looked into some APIs but none have provided this sort of comprehensive information. There are many great sites that have access to this sort of data, so it must be out there. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Most exchanges offer API solutions for market data. Here are some examples:

  1. GDAX
  2. Bittrex
  3. Kraken

CryptoCompare has an API that aggregates data from many exchanges, and they also offer many query parameters. Link: CryptoCompareAPI

Additionally, many block explorers provide APIs for blockchain account information.
This ZChain Playlist shows how to use PowerShell to query the ZChain ZCash block explorer API.

  • Also consider the HitBTC API supporting REST and WebSocket too. – mBardos Feb 27 at 11:51

If you want something simple and fast with a huge amount of coins try https://chasing-coins.com/api/

Take a look at the CoinAPI data provider, which have full coverage of the cryptocurrency markets and provide data via REST, WebSocket and FIX protocols.

You can check out Coinograph cryptocurrency API. It provides raw trade data, candles, orderbook and ticker.

You can check out the following API. Although it's mainly used to get standardized coin symbols across exchanges, you also get additional coin data in the response:

I think this one is best, they don't have restrictions https://www.coinlore.com/cryptocurrency-data-api

Almost each crytpo exchange has its own API, you can integrate it for free and get the data. The first challenge that they are too many (more than 200 exchanges so far), that means 200+ API integrations which cost a lot of time. The second challenge is that these exchanges provide a lot of data and after start collecting you will need to take care of many TBs which is an additional servers cost.

That's why there are such services like Coinmarketcapi professional API, coinapi and CryptoAPIs.io

I made a compare and i picked https://cryptoapis.io/ because they have more exchanges, more options and cheaper.
