Latest Bittrex API News

Bittrex, a cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in the US, was established in 2013. Offering a wide range of cryptocurrencies for trading, it is one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges. Bittrex also provides APIs for developers who desire to construct their trading applications, in addition to its trading platform. Bittrex’s trading platform can be integrated into developers’ own applications as well.

Flexible and simple to use are the defining traits of Bittrex APIs. Developers can utilize Bittrex’s trading platform to build various applications. Both versions of the APIs, which are namely REST and WebSocket, are available. The standard HTTP-based REST API provides access to different data and trading endpoints. The WebSocket API enables real-time streaming of market data and facilitates trade execution for developers.

With the REST API, you can access different types of data, ranging from market to order book, trade and user account data through the provided endpoints. The REST API enables developers to handle position management, place or cancel orders and access historical trading data. Developers with varying levels of experience can easily use the well-documented REST API.

For real-time trading applications, the WebSocket API is developed to provide real-time market data and order updates. To efficiently develop trading bots and other real-time trading applications that rely on real-time data updates, developers often utilize the WebSocket API. The WebSocket API’s ease of use is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. With a range of experience levels, developers can access it.

Bittrex has implemented several protective measures to secure its users’ assets while taking security very seriously. Bittrex uses multi-signature wallets, which is a significant security feature. Authorized transactions require multiple signatures in a multi-signature wallet, thereby increasing the difficulty of stealing funds by hackers. To ensure only authorized users access their accounts, Bittrex employs two-factor authentication.

Bittrex mandates adherence to certain guidelines by developers using its APIs, in addition to its security protocols. For instance, authentication of their requests requires developers to use API keys. Reducing the number of requests made to the API can prevent overloading the system. Bittrex also gives instructions on managing errors and limiting rates.
