A new API for external websites

As a result of our continuous strive to improve our services, we’ve created a new, special API function for external websites. By doing so, we would like to meet the needs of those developers who try to make their own contribution to the bitcoin community - be it creating and improving applications or creating various graphs and price comparison websites. Thanks to these efforts the life within the bitcoin community becomes easier and also, at the same time, probably easier to grasp for those who are still bitcoin novices.

Our newly introduced API function will allow the developers to get all the necessary information they need in one simple call. We hope that you, developers, see this new function as an interesting opportunity, so we can therefore contribute together to the development of the bitcoin community, helping to raise awareness not just of bitcoin, but altcoins as well.

What information can be obtained using this application?

In one, single API call the developer can mainly obtain information on which currency pairs we’ve supported in the last 24 hours, their turnover and the turnover denominated in bitcoins.

We hope that his function finds its use especially on websites that compare particular currencies or exchanges against each other.

We’ve included all the necessary info in our API documentation which can be accessed here: http://docs.coingi.apiary.io
