NORWALK, Conn., Jan. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — BlockMarkets (https://www.blockmarkets.io), a cryptocurrency market data provider built by Wall Street veterans, has launched a free cryptocurrency API with unlimited monthly API requests. The new service provides developers and crypto investors with a free, professional-grade API for accessing real-time and historical cryptocurrency market data.
The company’s free cryptocurrency API features normalized pricing data on over 500 assets and 3000 market pairs from the world’s leading digital asset exchanges, including Binance, Bittrex, Coinbase, Bitstamp, Kraken, OKEX, Poloniex, and Bitfinex among others. The RESTful API offers a real-time ticker feed and includes popular metrics such as circulating supply, market cap, and all-time-high price (ATH). Historical OHLC candle data from 2010 is also available, along with volume and VWAP.
Unlike other free API providers, BlockMarkets allows users to make unlimited monthly API requests. This allows developers to work freely on creating new websites or apps on a non-commercial basis. “Whether you’re developing a trading bot or a website, we want you to use our API. We are committed to building the best API for cryptocurrency data, and we believe that building a vibrant community of users will help us accomplish this goal,” said Jason Inzer, co-founder of BlockMarkets.
BlockMarkets has also partnered with RapidAPI to provide its free cryptocurrency API on RapidAPI’s platform. “We’re really excited to reach the 500,000 developers already using RapidAPI. We want to make it as easy as possible for developers to use our API, and RapidAPI is the best place to do this,” said Inzer.
In addition to its free plan, BlockMarkets offers a paid plan for startups and professional users that need access to advanced features such as tick data, live order books, and a streaming WebSocket. The paid plans also include a commercial use license along with email support.
