Public API Terms of Use



Please carefully read the entirety of these Terms. By accessing or using the CoinMarketCap Public API, you agree to be bound by these Terms, including all amendments and updates made between your initial acceptance of these Terms and any future access or use. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not access or use the CoinMarketCap Public API.

These Public API Terms of Use (the "Terms") are entered into between you and CoinMarketCap OpCo, LLC ("CoinMarketCap") and govern your use of the Public API and Market Data. For purposes of these Terms, "Market Data" means all data made available to you through CoinMarketCap's application programming interface(s) (the "CoinMarketCap Public API").

You represent and warrant that you are of legal age to enter into a binding agreement and are otherwise legally able and competent to enter into and carry out these Terms. If you are using Market Data on behalf of any entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to enter into these Terms on such entity's behalf, and that such entity agrees to be responsible to CoinMarketCap if you or that entity violates these Terms.


Permission to Use Market Data

Subject to the restrictions set forth below and all other terms of this Agreement, CoinMarketCap hereby grants you a worldwide, royalty-free, revocable, nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, limited license, solely for your internal purposes and in accordance with applicable law, to use, copy, store, and create derivative works (such as charts and analytics), from Market Data.


Restrictions and Responsibilities

Absent prior express written consent from CoinMarketCap, you may not:

  1. Alter, manipulate, or misrepresent Market Data, or present Market Data in a false or misleading light;
  2. Redistribute, display, or disseminate the Market Data—or any data, charts, analytics, research, or other works based on, referring to, or derived from the Market Data ("Derived Works")—to any third party;
  3. Use Market Data or authorized Derived Works, directly or indirectly, to create any of the following Derived Works, whether for internal use or otherwise: (i) indexes, fixings, or other benchmarks; (ii) generic or fair value prices; or (iii) valuations of Digital Currencies, digital tokens, securities, or financial derivatives (whether for purposes of settlement or otherwise)

Ownership and Proprietary Rights

  1. You acknowledge that as between CoinMarketCap and you, the Market Data and all rights in the Market Data (including all copyrights, database rights, and all other proprietary rights) are exclusively the property of CoinMarketCap. In addition and independently of the foregoing, you acknowledge that the Market Data is the product of substantial expenditure by CoinMarketCap of labor, skill, and money, and your use of Market Data in contravention of these Terms would misappropriate the benefits of those expenditures. CoinMarketCap reserves all rights in the Market Data not expressly granted in these Terms. At the request and expense of CoinMarketCap, you agree that you will take all reasonable steps, such as the execution of written documents, that may be necessary to protect, perfect, and enforce CoinMarketCap's rights in the Market Data.
  2. Without limiting any other rights of CoinMarketCap under these Terms, the parties recognize that a breach of the restrictions applicable herein to the use of Market Data would give rise to irreparable injury to CoinMarketCap such that monetary damages alone would not be an adequate remedy. You and CoinMarketCap agree that in the event of such a breach, CoinMarketCap will be entitled to equitable relief, including in the form of injunctive relief, and you hereby waive any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond or the showing that actual monetary damages will not afford an adequate remedy in connection with seeking such relief.

Changes to Market Data and Suspension of Access

CoinMarketCap may from time to time, without notice and in its sole discretion, withdraw, suspend, or change the Market Data or your access to the Market Data. You agree that CoinMarketCap has no obligation to provide the Market Data to you and will not be liable if any Market Data is unavailable or changes for any reason.


Changes to Terms

CoinMarketCap may modify these Terms from time to time in its discretion. It is your responsibility to monitor updates to these Terms. Your continued use of Market Data signifies your agreement to any such updates. If you do not agree, you may not continue to use Market Data.


Disclaimers

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law:

  • The Market Data is provided "as is" and "as available", and CoinMarketCap hereby disclaims all warranties, express, statutory, or implied (including, without limitation, implied warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and all warranties arising from course of dealing, usage or trade practice).
  • For clarity and without limiting the foregoing, CoinMarketCap makes no guarantees regarding the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, security, availability, or integrity of the Market Data or that the Market Data will be uninterrupted or operate in combination with any software, service, system, or other data.
  • You access and use the Market Data entirely at your sole risk, and CoinMarketCap will not be responsible for any actions you take based on the Market Data.

Indemnification

To the maximum extent permitted by law, you must indemnify and hold harmless CoinMarketCap, its affiliates, and its and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents ("CoinMarketCap Protected Parties") against all liabilities, costs, damages, and expenses arising out of or relating to your use of Market Data, including damages arising directly from your act or omission (including without limitation breach of these Terms) as well as judgments, settlements, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and legal costs) arising from a threatened or actual suit, investigation, proceeding, or other claim between you and a CoinMarketCap Protected Party or between a third party and a CoinMarketCap Protected Party arising out of or relating to your use of Market Data. CoinMarketCap may control the defense of any such Claim, at your cost and expense, and you will provide CoinMarketCap any assistance that CoinMarketCap reasonably requests in defending any such Claim.


Limitation of Liability

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the CoinMarketCap Protected Parties will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages of any kind—including lost profits or trading losses—related to the market data or these Terms, irrespective of whether such damages arise from claims brought in contract, tort, negligence, warranty, strict liability, or any other theory at law or equity, and even if CoinMarketCap has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Without limiting the foregoing, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will the CoinMarketCap Protected Parties' aggregate liability arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of Market Data exceed USD$1,000. If any limitations in this paragraph are unenforceable as written in any instance, then such limitations will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.


Rules of Construction

The words "include", "included", "includes" or "including" as used herein will be understood to be followed by the phrase "without limitation". The word "all" includes "any" and the word "any" includes "all". The words "herein" and "hereunder" refers to all of the Terms. Unless context expressly requires otherwise, the conjunction "or" will be understood to mean "and/or". The section headings in these Terms are inserted for convenience only and are not a part of the Terms and will not affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.


Entire Agreement

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and CoinMarketCap regarding the Market Data. If you wish to modify these Terms, any amendment must be provided to CoinMarketCap in writing and signed by an authorized representative of CoinMarketCap.


Choice of Law

You agree that the laws of the State of Delaware--without regard to any of its choice-of-law principles that would apply the substantive laws of any other jurisdiction--will govern these Terms and any claim or dispute that may arise between you and CoinMarketCap, except to the extent governed by federal law.


Compliance with Laws

You must comply with all laws in using the Market Data and you will reasonably cooperate with us to enable us to comply with applicable laws, and any governmental, regulatory or other investigations, audits, or proceedings related to the Market Data.


Assignment and Delegation

You may not assign or delegate any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone without CoinMarketCap's prior written consent, and any assignment in violation of this paragraph will be null and void. CoinMarketCap may freely assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Agreement, including in connection with any merger, acquisition or asset sale. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of You and CoinMarketCap, and your and CoinMarketCap's respective successors and permitted assigns.


Severability

In the event any part of these Terms is deemed unenforceable, you and CoinMarketCap authorize a court of competent jurisdiction to make the modifications that are necessary to comply with existing law, in a manner most closely representing the original intent of CoinMarketCap and you as expressed in these Terms.
