Popular crypto data website CoinMarketCap has launched a ‘professional’ API which offers enhancements over its standard API.
The new API is the result of a lot of inbound requests for CoinMarketCap’s data from developers and provides "additional endpoints, more calls, higher rate limits, exchange and market and historical data for the commercial tiers."
CoinMarketCap believes the API provides developers with the data they need for many of their cryptocurrency-related apps including each currency’s price, market capitalisation, conversions, and trading pair data.
Brandon Chez, Founder of CoinMarketCap, says:
“As part of our mission to continue growing the cryptocurrency sector with our partners, our professional API will ensure that the CoinMarketCap data that users know and trust can be integrated into every application.
Our API comes with a best-in-class developer dashboard that will help every developer – from hobbyist to large-scale cryptocurrency product teams – make the most of our data.”
Data through the API is provided from the market in near real-time as CoinMarketCap aggregates from hundreds of exchanges every minute.
Here’s the pricing information for each tier:
