Bitcoincharts provides financial and technical data related to theBitcoin network. You can also access this data via ourJSON-API.

Bitcoincharts uses daily intervals (UTC) to display data. For example, the volume of a market will usually be zero at midnight (UTC) and increase during the day.

Colors will fade to black slowly depending on how long ago the last trade happened. A bright color means that the trade happened not too long ago.

The first column shows the symbol, base currency and payment method of a market. An arrow denotes whether the latest price is higher or lower then yesterdays price. Symbols are short names that identify a market and are chosen by Bitcoincharts.
