Ticker Mapping

Across different exchanges and data sources, coins may have different tickers on different exchanges, or different coins may have the same ticker. In either case, limited information can make it especially challenging to correctly identify coins .

CryptoCompare has built a system that allows us to handle the mapping of exchange specific ticker names and map them to a unique internal global ID (CCGID). This tool enables us to carefully control which coins are included in our data sets, carry out more efficient and effective due diligence to identify assets, and handle changes in names when necessary.
