How Do I Pull Data About Cryptocurrencies Using Python?

- 1 answer

I am creating a program that needs to pull the value of cryptocurrencies over time from google. I am using Bitcoin as an example:

Graph of Bitcoin value in AUD when "value of bitcoin" is searched.

I need to pull all the values from this graph and write them to a file using python.

Any help would be appreciated! :)


If you inspect element the graph, you get the following HTML code:

M  0 207.06 L 0.75 206.97 ...

This is the data I would like to pull and I would like to know how to go about this.
