This is possible with the new free 'CryptoValueXML' Custom Sensor from PRTG Tools Family.

The sensor requires the following parameters

-k=   Your (free) CoinMarketCap API Key
-c=   Optional, comma seperated list of coins to monitor (default = 'BTC,ETH')
-e=   Optional, the fiat currency for displaying the coin exchange value (default = 'EUR')

A (free) CoinMarketCap API Key can be obtained from https://pro.coinmarketcap.com
Free API keys are holding enough credits to run the sensor at a 10 min interval.

The sensor can be downloaded from: https://prtgtoolsfamily.com/downloads/sensorsxml
