Blockchain.com, a provider of cryptocurrency services including a popular crypto wallet, today launched a trading API on the Blockchain.com Exchange. Originally launched this past summer as ‘The Pit’ – the Blockchain.com rebrand of last month, has seen the exchange renamed.
With the Blockchain.com Exchange API, traders can receive real-time market data and execute orders instantly, to help them capture an edge using programmatic trading strategies
The Blockchain.com Exchange API is the latest addition to the suite of APIs the company has engineered for developers, including the first bitcoin API. The Blockchain.com Exchange API saw immediate adoption after a successful beta program, and has facilitated tens of millions of orders since November.
“Programmable trading using high-quality APIs is vital to the continued growth of efficient and liquid cryptocurrency markets. With the API and power of the Blockchain.com Exchange, sophisticated traders will have the institutional-grade trading tools they need to maximize performance and never miss a trading opportunity.”
– Xen Baynham-Herd, Executive Vice President of Product at Blockchain.com
Since launch, the Blockchain.com Exchange has steadily grown its user base and trading volumes, while consistently releasing new features and assets. In just the last two months, it has launched support for GBP through the UK’s Faster Payments System, listed popular crypto project Algorand, and exclusively released the gold-backed token DGLD, increasing its asset offering to 34 live trading pairs.
