How to get the top ERC20 tokens by market cap


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 Top ERC20 Tokens By Market Cap

In order to get the top ERC20 tokens by market cap, Moralis provides you with a getTopERC20TokensByMarketCap endpoint to do so. To use the API, 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 response =
await Moralis.EvmApi.marketData.getTopERC20TokensByMarketCap();



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:
