https://coinmarketcap.com/api/ - Powerful JSON API covering 1000+ coins. Limit: 1 request per 6 sec.
https://github.com/CoinCapDev/CoinCap.io - Simple and informative. Lots of altcoins. History data. No limits.
https://cryptowat.ch/docs/api - Public REST API, providing basic information about all markets on Cryptowatch.

Personally, I use CoinMarketCap (works great) and CoinCap (some coins are troublesome sometimes. E.g. no MIOTA history data).

Any ideas where I can find percentage change according to BTC value for alt coins?
CoinMarketCap provides this value on website but sadly not over API (it shows only percentage change according to USD value).
Looks like I have to calculate it myself, np.

Hey drptbl! Nice question you're asking. I haven't found a solution too 😌 It's on my to-do list to create storing changes in BTC.
Btw, what are you working on?
