Lake is a service providing historical cryptocurrency market data in high detail, including L2 depth snapshots, tick trades and 1m trade candles. We cover 8 exchanges, all top 10 tokens and many altcoins. Our API is tuned for convenient quant and machine-learning purposes and so offers high performance, caching and parallelization.

While practically all free crypto datasets don’t contain market depth data, we provide depth snapshots with 20 levels of order book data on each order book side. This is essential for precise backtests, execution simulation, (statistical) arbitrage strategies or market making. While most quants look at widely available trade candle data, we believe there is a lot more alpha left in more detailed data, depth data and tick data in general.

Boost your research with our 7 high-frequency data types covering 50+ tokens over several years. Join us!

People said about us

Great API performance, I can load data from 10 AWS machines in parallel.

Love the order book snapshots, they allow me to do very precise backtests.

I finally became profitable based on optimization on Lake data.
