In this guide, we’ll break down how you can download cryptocurrency pricing and transaction history data to an Excel spreadsheet. The process allows you to generate a csv file that contains data about your cryptocurrency transactions across all your wallets and exchanges in minutes. 

Can I pull cryptocurrency prices into Excel? 

If you have a Microsoft 365 subscription, you can use Excel’s stocks functionality to pull in cryptocurrency prices. 

Currently, Excel supports the following cryptocurrencies. 

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Ripple (XRP)
  • Ethereum (ETH) 

Excel allows you to see the price of cryptocurrency in the fiat currency of your choice —  USD, EUR, CAD, and more! 

For example, if you want to see the price of BTC in USD, you can enter BTC/USD into a cell. Microsoft Excel will see this as a valid input and pull the relevant price. 

In addition, Excel can help you pull the historical prices of cryptocurrencies! The STOCKHISTORY function can help you show the price of your crypto at daily, monthly, and weekly intervals. 

Still, it’s important to remember that Excel has limitations when it comes to cryptocurrency. The platform does not support many different types of cryptocurrencies and cannot import your transactions from your wallets and exchanges. 

Does Excel support cryptocurrency exchanges and wallets? 

Unfortunately, Excel does not allow you to automatically import your transactions from exchanges like Coinbase or blockchains like Ethereum. This can make it difficult to keep a record of your cryptocurrency transactions — including the price of your crypto at receipt and disposal and the date and time you received and disposed of your coins. 

Luckily, there’s an easier way to track your transactions. Third-party tools like CoinLedger can help you automatically import your trades and download your cryptocurrency data on an Excel spreadsheet.
