Getting Started

CCXT-REST supports over 100 crytpocurrency exchange sites. If you want to access public data, for most exchanges, you can access them directly without any API Keys or Secret.

  • GET:/exchanges/{exchangeName}/markets
  • GET:/exchanges/{exchangeName}/ticker
  • GET:/exchanges/{exchangeName}/tickers
  • GET:/exchanges/{exchangeName}/orderBook
  • GET:/exchanges/{exchangeName}/trades

In binance, it would look something like this

  • GET:/exchanges/binance/markets
  • GET:/exchanges/binance/ticker?symbol=BTC/USDT
  • GET:/exchanges/binance/tickers
  • GET:/exchanges/binance/orderBook?symbol=BTC/USDT
  • GET:/exchanges/binance/trades?symbol=BTC/USDT

However, some exchanges though require you to have an API Key and Secret even when accessing public data. For example, for cointiger, you would need to get an API Key and Secret first from cointiger see cointiger's official documentation for more info, and then you would need to provide those to

  • POST:/exchanges/cointiger -d {"id":"myCoinTiger","apiKey":"myApiKey","secret":"$hcreT"}
  • GET:/exchanges/cointiger/markets -H 'Authorization: Bearer xxx.yyy.zzz'
    was part of the response of
  • GET:/exchanges/cointiger/ticker?symbol=BTC/LTC -H 'Authorization: Bearer xxx.yyy.zzz'
  • GET:/exchanges/cointiger/tickers -H 'Authorization: Bearer xxx.yyy.zzz'
  • GET:/exchanges/cointiger/orderBook?symbol=BTC/LTC -H 'Authorization: Bearer xxx.yyy.zzz'
  • GET:/exchanges/cointiger/trades?symbol=BTC/LTC -H 'Authorization: Bearer xxx.yyy.zzz'

Lastly, for private data like your user orders, trades, balances and for actions like placing and cancelling orders, you would definitely need to provide the API Key and Secret for your exchange to
