Bitstamp historical market data details - currency pairs, data coverage and data collection specifics

Exchange status: not available for individual order

Bitstamp historical data for all it's currency pairs is available since 2019-03-30.

Downloadable CSV files

Historical CSV datasets for the first day of each month are available to download without API key. See downloadable CSV files documentation.

API Access and data format

Historical data format is the same as provided by real-time Bitstamp WebSocket v2 with addition of local timestamps. If you'd like to work with normalized data format instead (same format for each exchange) see downloadable CSV files or official client libs that can perform data normalization client-side.

  messages = tardis_client.replay(
    filters=[Channel(name="diff_order_book", symbols=["btcusd"])]

  # messages as provided by Bitstamp real-time stream

Captured real-time channels

Click any channel below to see HTTP API response with historical data recorded for it.

Bitstamp real-time WebSocket API does not provide initial full order book snapshots for live_orders and diff_order_book channels subscriptions. To overcome this issue we fetch initial order book snapshots from REST API and store them together with the rest of the WebSocket messages. Such snapshot messages are marked with "event": "snapshot" and "generated": true fields for respective channels.
