BlockMarkets, a cryptocurrency market data provider built by Wall Street veterans, has launched a free cryptocurrency API, called the RESTful API, with unlimited monthly API requests. The service provides developers and crypto investors with a free, professional-grade API for accessing real-time and historical cryptocurrency market data.
The API features normalized pricing data on over 500 assets and 3,000 market pairs from global digital asset exchanges, including Binance, Bittrex, Coinbase, Bitstamp, Kraken, OKEX, Poloniex, and Bitfinex plus others. The RESTful API offers a real-time ticker feed and includes standard metrics such as circulating supply, market cap, and all-time-high price (ATH). Historical OHLC candle data from 2010 is also available, along with volume and VWAP.
A unique feature, BlockMarkets allows users to make unlimited monthly API requests. This allows users to work freely on creating new websites or apps on a non-commercial basis. BlockMarkets has also partnered with RapidAPI to provide its free cryptocurrency API on RapidAPI's platform.
In addition to its free plan, BlockMarkets offers a paid plan for startups and professional users that need access to advanced features such as tick data, live order books, and a streaming WebSocket. The paid plans also include a commercial use license along with email support.
