How to get Crypto prices using Google Finance and spreadsheets easy (Updated: 2023)

For the last three years, I’ve been sharing a way to get cryptocurrency prices like Bitcoin or Ethereum into Google Spreadsheets via Google Finance. There are a few ways to get cryptocurrency prices using Google Sheets and Google Finance, for example:

  • Using the GOOGLEFINANCE function in a cell to retrieve current or historical cryptocurrency prices
  • Using a Google Sheets add-on such as Cryptofinance, CoinMarketCap, CryptoSheets, Blockchain Data, …
  • Using an API to import data into Google Sheets. For example, CoinGecko, CoinMarketCap, CryptoCompare, …

In this post, we’ll check the first option, as it is very straightforward and does not require installing or registering anything or anywhere at all.

Google Finance updated its API pretty much yearly, so the way of doing the same thing may change. In 2021 and 2022 they updated their API to make it much simpler to pull this data, as now is treated as a proper currency, rather than just values to fetch from a table.

Last year they added several more (e.g. ADA and BNB prices), but many others are missing. They add more with time, but at the moment Google Finance only works for certain pairs. It doesn’t work for certain altcoins like DOGE, AAVE, DOT, LUNA, etc, …

The most popular crypto generally are fine, for example at the time of writing this post, the following cryptocurrencies are available on Google Finance:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Ethereum (ETH)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Ripple (XRP)

What formula can I use to get Solana, Polkadot, or other non-conventional crypto prices?

The ones that are not available in Google Finance can’t be used with the approach described above, however, you can use alternatives like Binance or other tools like

My data isn’t refreshing to track current prices. What am I doing wrong?

Google Finance does not update this data in real-time, generally, there is a 10-20 minutes delay.

    Great post. I’m a big fan of Google finance, but I agree that it doesn’t have a lot of crypto. I found for a few weeks now, it seems to support all the coins on coingecko, which is helpful when Google finance isn’t enough
