Download Coinbase API Data via Python

This is a short tutorial article that explains and gives example for how to use Python to download historical OHLC (Open, High, Low, Close) data with the Coinbase API. (*Please note that the Coinbase API is intended to be used for personal usage - refer to their market data terms). In the below Python script, we will use Pandas, requests, and json libraries to create a simple function that will ultimately write a CSV file with the filename "Coinbase_PAIR_dailydata.csv".. So if we want BTC/USD, the resulting filename will be: Coinbase_BTCUSD_dailydata.csv - Go ahead and give it a try!

This script is extremely simple, and can be greatly enhanced or fitted to meet your personal needs. It can easily be modified to save the data into a database, or pull different time frames or pairs... If you have a custom data need and would like help setting up the proper code, feel free to reach out to us
