Hello,

I am claudi and a european developer.
My problem is that I didn't find an ellegant way to get the actual price of an altcoin in USD/EUR (for example LTC, FTC, WDC...)
Is there a page with an API (json would be best) where I can get those information easy?
Or is there a smart way to get the actual BTC prices of those currencies, so I can calculate the actual USD/EUR rate by myself?
I am searching for 2 hours now at google and here but can't find any tip how to do this.

Sadly I can't use the PM feature to contact Gliss (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=199685.0) (the developer of coinmarketcap.com)
He seems to have found a good way to calculate the price by himself.
Would be nice if he would throw a glimps into this topic and give me a small tip.

Thanks for all your help!

Have you looked into the Cryptsy API? I haven't touched it, but it should do what you need.

Yes look into it. It will definitely help. But I don't know whether it is json or not.

Thank you guys. This looks really promising. At cryptsy I can get the latest trade price in BTC.
Is there another alternative like cryptsy where I don't need a API Key? (Public)

The only major problem with that, is that downloading that big chunk of data, and processing it every 5 minuted, would be a pain in the ass at best.

Indeed. Is there a way of just downloading the "lasttradeprice" without the other (for me) unimportant information?
