Where can I get historical prices in table format (not charts) that I can copy & paste or download?

Cryptocoincharts used to have it in their "v1", right under the chart. But now v1 went away, and I cannot find it in their new site.

It's a huge omission - I can't find historical prices anywhere.

Anyone? Where do you people get the data? Or you just trade based on staring at charts?

Anyone? Where do you people get the data? Or you just trade based on staring at charts?

It quickly boils down to “How much are you prepared to pay for this service?” The cryptocurrency game is overwhelmingly oriented towards gaining personal financial advantage. This is accompanied by the usual entitlement-driven assumption that market support services will be provided free of charge as conveniences. Even worse, as a consequence of this assumption, invitations to donate are simply unheeded by the vast majority.

However, the harsh reality is that data collection is time-consuming to set up, demanding to manage and expensive to maintain. Here's a hint as to what has to happen in the background in order for the publishing of contemporary altcoin market data to take place:

http://www.cryptocoincharts.info/status

and a bit more detail here: http://www.cryptocoincharts.info/news/2014/100-000-000-trades-in-our-database/

The last days we reached the 100.000.000 trades which are stored in our database. Additionally to this amount of single trade data we store more than 1000 trading pairs from 45 different exchanges. Every exchange has its own API which have to be maintenanced very often by me. The work is very time consuming and sometimes frustrating because APIs change out of a sudden but when i see the vast amount of data i collected the past year i am proud of operating this website and i am happy to be able to share this information with the whole cryptocoin community.

You're not alone in your perception of this as a major omission. I'm currently setting up some market activity data collection but, unlike DOACC, I'm not intending to publish it as a free service, it'll be densely value-added and that's something I charge for.

The principle is straightforward, if you intend to take advantage of value-added services to increase your financial standing, you'll be expected to contribute generously towards covering the costs of providing these value-added services. (I'm not as green as I am cabbage-looking.)

Or, you can undertake the task yourself. It's not as if the trading info is secret, publishing trading activity summaries is part of the standard offering by all of the better exchanges. For example, here's Bleutrade's info from their JSON-based API, trivially consumable by most modern programming languages:
https://bleutrade.com/api/v2/public/getmarkets

They offer a help page: https://bleutrade.com/help/API

I really do mean “trivially consumable”, here's a bit of Python to illustrate ...
Code:
>>> import requests
>>> import json
>>> mkts = requests.get("https://bleutrade.com/api/v2/public/getmarkets").json().get('result')
>>> print(mkts[0].get('MarketName'))
