About Coinbase Pro APIs
Various Coinbase Pro APIs are available for developers to create applications. For example, trading APIs require authentication and allow account access and order placing, while public feed APIs provide market information.
What is Coinbase Pro?
Both Coinbase and its Pro version are cryptocurrency exchanges that allow the use of fiat money to buy digital currency. Coinbase is excellent for beginner investors that are new to the crypto market.
Coinbase Pro is more for advanced traders that understand cryptocurrency trading and are well-versed in the market lingo. A Coinbase Pro account allows investors a secure method of buying, selling, and trading digital assets. In addition, users can manage multiple portfolios, track market changes, view trading history, and more.
Fees vary between the two options, and seasoned investors enjoy lower costs associated with active trading in a Coinbase Pro account.
How does the Coinbase Pro API work?
Coinbase Pro APIs follow HTTP status protocols for success and failure and utilize JSON for requests and responses. The APIs also support cursor pagination, so they are well-suited for real-time call requests. All orders placed fall into a first-come, first-served order book that are executed on price priority.
While Coinbase does not support any official client libraries, there are unofficial ones available for C#, Java, Python, Ruby, and others. There is also a public web socket feed available.
Who can benefit from a Coinbase Pro API?
Investors and crypto enthusiasts alike can benefit from the Coinbase Pro APIs and third-party resources that integrate them.
Developers interested in building solutions for themselves or the market at large can utilize the extensive resource available for the APIs to create a number of valuable tools.
Why is a Coinbase Pro API necessary?
The cryptocurrency market is highly dynamic, and to make successful buy and sell decisions, traders need real-time information. Without access to current data like that provided through the use of quality APIs, this knowledge would be out of reach.
What can you expect from a Coinbase Pro API?
Any Coinbase Pro API should implement secure authentication to protect accounts, provide real-time data for accurate trading judgments, and allow for up-to-date market research of cryptocurrency news.
