How to get the price of an ERC20 token

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 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 address = '0x2260fac5e5542a773aa44fbcfedf7c193bc2c599';

const chain = EvmChain.ETHEREUM;

const response = await Moralis.EvmApi.token.getTokenPrice({
address,
chain,
});

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": "13753134139373781549",
"decimals": 18,
"name": "Ether",
"symbol": "ETH"
},
"usdPrice": 16115.165641767926,
"exchangeAddress": "0x1f98431c8ad98523631ae4a59f267346ea31f984",
"exchangeName": "Uniswap v3"
}

Congratulations 🥳 You just got the price of an ERC20 Token with just a few lines of code using the Moralis Token API!
