Exciting news! Official auction house data is now available on the Wiki!
The Coin Hunt World dev team has begun sending the Wiki monthly average price data for all items in the game. While a ‘live’ API remains our hope, this latest move represents a large step forward in increased collaboration between Coin Hunt World and the Wiki.
What Does the Data Look Like?
Let’s look at an interactive price chart of Resin. Tap on the ‘1yr’ button to display data for the last year. The blue line represents the limited sample of volume-weighted auction data generated by the Wiki data team. The black line is the official average monthly data.
What is immediately apparent is how closely the Wiki data tracks the official data. Despite being largely estimated algorithmically, it turns out to have been remarkably accurate.
A huge thank you to all team members who did the unglamorous ‘grunt’ work of capturing and processing screenshots. And thank you to all those who submitted their transactions on the auction house form. Going forward, the form will likely still be open for submissions, but the scope will be limited to rare items.
How Can You View the Official Auction House Data?
A new Wiki feature, Auction House Price History, allows you to view any price chart from one page. Using the dropdown menu, you can view multiple charts quickly, without having to go to each item page separately.
In addition to this feature, all charts remain plotted on each item’s corresponding Wiki page, along with a table of transactions tracked by the data team. For the time being, the Wiki dataset is plotted along with the official dataset, but that may change as the usefulness of that data is evaluated.
If anyone is interested in using this data for their own projects, you can find out more on the Stats API wiki page.
We’re grateful to the dev team for making this data available. We hope that it is useful for all you hunters looking to formulate strategies for investing, trading, and printing.
The Auction House team has been combining derived price information with user-submitted data for over a year, tracking thousands of sales. We now look forward to using official data to produce analysis and visualizations to help hunters get the most out of the game.
