Bitstamp was established in Luxembourg back in 2011 and functions as a cryptocurrency exchange. The industry considers it as one of its oldest and prestigious exchanges. Users can use the platform to purchase, vend, and exchange cryptocurrencies.
APIs serve as intermediaries between different software programs, allowing them to exchange information. The company offers various APIs to allow its users to automate their trading approaches and obtain market data. Their accounts can similarly be handled by them too. These APIs enable users to submit orders, check their past order records, and oversee live market data.
The platform has a RESTful API that uses HTTPS requests to establish communication with its servers. The indication of success or failure of requests is done through standard HTTP status codes. Amongst the available endpoints for API are order book, ticker, and transaction history. Along with creating and cancelling orders, users can access information about their account balance and trade history.
The Websocket API is another API offered to users. Stay informed about the market’s constantly changing landscape with real-time data on price updates, order books and trade notifications provided by this API. The API employs the WebSocket protocol. Communication in real-time between a client and server is enabled by the WebSocket protocol, a protocol that allows bidirectional communication. The Websocket API enables users to receive real-time data. Several requests are not required by users.
They understand the importance of security and have introduced numerous security protocols to ensure the safety of users’ funds and personal information. As a crucial security protocol, Bitstamp uses two-factor authentication (2FA). Security measures mandate the users to provide a second factor – such as a code on their phone or a biometric factor like facial recognition or fingerprints. Including their username and password, there’s also this other thing.
To secure communication between its servers and users, they also utilize SSL encryption. A standard security protocol called SSL encryption ensures that all data transmitted between two points – such as a user’s computer and the company’s servers – is encrypted. The safety of the data from interception by unauthorized parties is ensured with this encryption.
Bitstamp supplements its security measures with a team of experts to monitor its systems for any suspicious activity. Security audits performed regularly by the company ensure the effectiveness of its security protocols.
