How to get historical ERC20 token price

Prerequisites

Before getting started, make sure you have the following ready:

  • Node v.14+ or Python
  • NPM/Yarn or Pip

Step 1: Setup Moralis

First register your Moralis account and get your Moralis API Key.

Once you have your Moralis API Key, install the Moralis SDK in your project.

npm install moralis @moralisweb3/common-evm-utils

Step 2: Get the price of an ERC20 token

In order to get the historical price of an ERC20 token, Moralis provides you with an getTokenPrice endpoint.

Here you'll need two parameters: address and chain.

Once you have obtained the address and chain, you can copy the following code:

const Moralis = require("moralis").default;
const { EvmChain } = require("@moralisweb3/common-evm-utils");

const runApp = async () => {
await Moralis.start({
apiKey: "YOUR_API_KEY",
// ...and any other configuration
});

const historicalPrice = [];

const address = "0x7d1afa7b718fb893db30a3abc0cfc608aacfebb0";

const chain = EvmChain.ETHEREUM;

for (let toBlock = 16323500; toBlock < 16323550; toBlock += 10) {
const response = await Moralis.EvmApi.token.getTokenPrice({
address,
chain,
toBlock,
});

historicalPrice.push(response?.toJSON());
}

console.log(response.toJSON());
};

runApp();

Step 3: Run the script

To run the script, enter the following command:

node index.js

In your terminal, you should see the following JSON response:

[
{
"nativePrice": {
"value": "642828540698243",
"decimals": 18,
"name": "Ether",
"symbol": "ETH"
},
