✓ 100+ tokens

We support BTC, ETH, AR, EUR, and many other crypto and fiat currencies. All supported tokens

✓ TypeScript Support

Redstone API is fully written in Typescript and then compiled to JavaScript. Source code

📦 Installation

Using npm

npm install redstone-api

Using yarn

yarn add redstone-api

🤖 Usage

Importing

// Using Node.js `require()`
const redstone = require('redstone-api');

// Using ES6 imports
import redstone from 'redstone-api';

Get the latest price for a single token

const price = await redstone.getPrice("AR");

console.log(price.value); // latest price value for AR token (in USD)
console.log(price.timestamp); // the exact timestamp of the price

💡 Note: All the prices are denominated in USD. You can fetch price data for BTC, ETH, AR, EUR and any other of 100+ supported tokens.

Available symbols

You can use a symbols object to explore all available symbols right in the code.

import redstone from 'redstone-api';

const price = await redstone.getPrice("AR");

Price data format
{
  value: 123.23, // Number: Price value in USD
  timestamp: 1617146511173, // Number: Timestamp (ms) for price
  provider: "I-5rWUehEv-MjdK9gFw09RxfSLQX9DIHxG614Wf8qo0", // String: Provider arweave address
  permawebTx: "V8FUU0BG4kVOJwKWHzgkn1aEFm-eanhqqEXfPFY7pmI", // String: Arweave transaction id
  source: {"coingecko": 123,"sushiswap": 123.23,"uniswap": 123.35}, // Object: Prices from different sources
}

Fetch price using promises
// As async/await is only a syntactic sugar on Javascript
// Promises you can use them in a "standard" way
const price = redstone.getPrice("AR").then((price) => {
  console.log(price.value); // latest price value for AR token
});


Get the latest prices for several tokens

To fetch prices for several tokens use the getPrice method and pass an array with any subset of supported tokens.

const prices = await redstone.getPrice(["BTC", "ETH", "AR", "EUR"]);

console.log(prices); // Example output below
/*
{
  "BTC": {
    value: 58953.39,
    timestamp: 1617152802779,
    ...
  },
  "ETH": {
    value: 1856.75,
    timestamp: 1617152802779,
    ...
  },
  ...
}
*/


console.log(prices["BTC"].value); // latest price value for BTC
console.log(prices["ETH"].value); // latest price value for ETH
console.log(prices["AR"].value); // latest price value for AR

Get prices for all available tokens

To fetch the latest prices for all available tokens use the getAllPrices method.

const prices = await redstone.getAllPrices();

console.log(prices); // Example output below
/*
{
  "BTC": {...},
  "ETH": {...},
  ...
}
*/

console.log(prices["AR"].value); // latest price value for AR
console.log(prices["EUR"].value); // latest price value for EUR

Get the historical price for a single token

To get the historical price use the getHistoricalPrice method.

const price = await redstone.getHistoricalPrice("AR", {
  date: "2021-03-30T12:35:09", // Any convertable to date type
});

console.log(price.value); // AR price for specific time

💡 Note: date argument must be convertable to Date type. You may pass date (e.g. new Date(2021-04-01)), timestamp (e.g. 1617709771289), or just string (e.g. 2021-04-01 or 2021-04-01T12:30:58).


Get the historical price for several tokens

To fetch the historical price for several tokens pass an array of symbols to getHistoricalPrice method.

const symbols = ["AR", "BTC", "UNI", "ETH", "EUR"];
const prices = await redstone.getHistoricalPrice(symbols, {
  date: "2021-03-30T12:35:09",
});

console.log(prices["BTC"].value); // BTC price for specific time

Get the historical prices in a time range

To fetch the historical prices in a time range specify token symbol as the first argument of the getHistoricalPrice method, and startDate, endDate and interval as fields of the second argument.

💡 Note: currently Redstone API supports fetching historical prices in a time range only for a single token.

const prices = await redstone.getHistoricalPrice("AR", {
  startDate: "2021-03-29T12:35:09",
  endDate: "2021-03-30T12:35:09",
  interval: 3600 * 1000, // 1 hour
});

console.log(prices); // Example output below
/*
[
  {
    value: 28.8,
    timestamp: 1617016995624,
    ...
  },
  {
    value: 28.59,
    timestamp: 1617014111705,
    ...
  },
  ...
]
*/

💡 Note: startDate and endDate argument must be convertable to Date type.

Get prices with pagination

To fetch prices with pagination specify token symbol as the first argument of the getHistoricalPrice method, and offset with limit as properties of the second argument.

💡 Note: pagination is supported only for a single token.

const prices = await redstone.getHistoricalPrices("AR", {
  offset: 1000,
  limit: 100,
});

Verify signature

All prices saved in Redstone have a signature, thanks to which you always can verify if the price data has been submitted by the trusted provider.

To do so you can set verifySignature option to true in getPrice, getHistoricalPrice or getAllPrices methods. If signature is invalid - error will be thrown.

const price = await redstone.getPrice("AR", {
  verifySignature: true,
});
console.log(price.value);

Fluent Interface

Redstone implements a fluent interface to simplify query creation thanks to a human readable syntax. Learn more

redstone fluent interface example


Using a custom cache api url

Option 1. Using a setCacheApiUrl method

redstone.setCacheApiUrl("http://localhost:9000/prices");
redstone.getPrice("AR").then(console.log);

Option 2. Initialising a new redstone api instance with a cacheApiUrl param

const redstoneApi = new redstone.Api({
  cacheApiUrl: "http://localhost:9000/prices",
});
redstoneApi.getPrice("AR").then(console.log);

💡 Note: To use a custom cache api url with the redstone fluent interface you should pass a cacheApiUrl as an argument of the exec method each time you make a query.

redstone.query().symbol("AR").latest().exec({
  cacheApiUrl: "http://localhost:9000/prices",
}).then(console.log);

Get prices from Arweave

By default, Redstone API fetches data from the Redstone cache layer. It works way faster than fetching directly from Arweave Blockchain. Even so, thanks to signature verification prices data is still trusted and secure.

We strongly recommend using the default fetching mechanism which leverages cache to speed up queries. But if you want to fetch data directly from Arweave you can do it by initialising a new Api client and setting useCache option to false.

const redstoneArweaveClient = new redstone.Api({ useCache: false });

const price = await redstoneArweaveClient.getPrice("AR");

console.log(price.value); // AR price value fetched directly from Arweave
