How to Refresh Rates with CRYPTOFINANCE in Google Sheets
Cells won't automatically refresh with new data — learn how to set a manual refresh trigger in Google Sheets.

Using a Manual Refresh Trigger

We use a trick where Google Sheets will force a refresh when one of the function’s argument has changed.
Here is how to set it up in 2 steps:
  1. 1.
    Make the 4th argument to all your CRYPTOFINANCE function calls a locked reference to a cell, say A1. If you don’t have 2nd or 3rd arguments, just make them an empty string, like this "".
  2. 2.
    From now on every time you change the content of this cell, A1 here, your data will be updated.
ProTip — Use a checkbox in A1 to trigger a refresh easily, go to InsertCheckbox .
Clicking it only once will suffice to trigger a refresh.
Examples:
If your function call was =CRYPTOFINANCE("BINANCE:ETH/BTC") your function call becomes:
1
=CRYPTOFINANCE("BINANCE:ETH/BTC", "", "", $A$1)
Copied!
If your function call was =CRYPTOFINANCE("KRAKEN") your function call becomes
1
=CRYPTOFINANCE("KRAKEN", "", "", $A$1)
Copied!
