We are pleased to announce that Kinesis has made available an API that allows clients to programmatically interact with the Kinesis Exchange and Kinesis Money platform.
Our easy-to-use API allows users the ability to automate their trading activities, such as buying, selling and holding digital gold (KAU), digital silver (KAG), and cryptocurrencies.
Everyone, from smaller-scale developers and platform providers to larger businesses, can now utilise the very same technology that powers the Exchange, to leverage their own trading experience.
Features of the Kinesis API
By providing access to Kinesis Exchange technology, we are extending the opportunity for third parties to automate trading on the Kinesis platform, as well as create their own use-cases and applications. This technology brings with it the endless possibility for developer customisation, contributing to the overall improvement and evolution of trading on the Kinesis platform.
As an example, our CTO Jason Noorman has demonstrated an app that allows the reality of an entirely hands-free experience in our latest walkthrough, where clients can request their available balance, find out the price of popular crypto assets, or check on their open orders, simply by asking Alexa.
Our API allows for automation of common exchange workflows, such as:
- Getting current symbol pricing, market depth and historical data
- Getting account balances and asset holdings
- Placing and managing buy and sell orders on the Exchange
A full list of features and sample applications can be found on our Github repository page, here.
How Does it Work?
To access the API, you require a set of API keys that can be generated from the settings page, where documentation is included and ready for implementation. We have provided API examples in many popular coding languages.
As we increase the availability of Kinesis API technology, we maintain the highest industry-leading security and best practices. When transactions are processed via the Exchange they are uniquely signed using easy to implement cryptographic methods using the private key of the account holder to make the request.
An API key can be requested through the Kinesis platform, in the setting tab, here.
Kinesis is continually expanding on its tech offering so that developers at every level can interact with the Kinesis Exchange in new and unforeseen ways, to create their own innovative solutions.
We are proud to embrace further development of Kinesis’ technology, as well as its interaction with more ecosystems, enabling clients to complete access to the proven value and efficiency of our Exchange technology, and payment infrastructure.
