 In this article, we are going to see how to get the real-time price of cryptocurrencies using Binance API  in Python.

Binance API

Binance API is a method that allows you to connect to the Binance servers using several programming languages. With it, you can automate your trading and make HTTP requests to send and receive data.

Here we access Binance API using Python with requests module. We will be sending requests to Binance API and extracting the real-time price of the required cryptocurrency in JSON format. We will use JSON module to convert extracted JSON data to a Python dictionary. 

Example 1: Get Crypto Price Using Python And Binance API

Here requests.get() will send a request to a specified URL and save it in data and json() converted data to a Python dictionary.

Python3




# Import libraries
import json
import requests
  
# defining key/request url
  
# requesting data from url
data = requests.get(key)  
data = data.json()
print(f"{data['symbol']} price is {data['price']}")

Output:

BTCUSDT price is 41522.20000000

Example 2: Get Multiple Real-time Crypto prices

Python3




# Import libraries
import json
import requests
  
# Defining Binance API URL
  
# Making list for multiple crypto's
currencies = ["BTCUSDT", "DOGEUSDT", "LTCUSDT"]
j = 0
  
# running loop to print all crypto prices
for i in currencies:
    
    # completing API for request
    url = key+currencies[j]  
    data = requests.get(url)
    data = data.json()
    j = j+1
    print(f"{data['symbol']} price is {data['price']}")

Output:

BTCUSDT price is 41522.20000000
DOGEUSDT price is 0.14710000
LTCUSDT price is 125.00000000
