I am using popular Coinmarketcap API request:


In response percentChangeFor24h and some other parameters are always different from what is show on coinmarketcap.com. Do I miss something or data is just irrelevant? Could it be from timezone? I have not found any way to change timezone into requests itself.


This is likely due to the update frequency of the API and website.

They certainly use the same source to get data for their website and API.

One might be lagging a few minutes sometimes. I'd assume the API data is the most up to date and it's safe to rely on it.
