Introduction

The Bitfinex API’s are designed to allow access to all of the features of the Bitfinex platform. The end goal is to allow people to potentially recreate the entire platform on their own.

Open Source Libraries

The following open source projects are works in progress. We will be continually improving them, but we want to release them early so that the community can take a look, make use of them, and offer pull requests. Nothing in the Bitcoin world exists in isolation.

Important

Before you start, please make sure to carefully read the Readme section

Note

This section of the portal gives the user a brief explanation of how to set up your system in order to use our API. If you need a detailed explanation of our exposed endpoints you can jump right into our Reference section.

Currently the Version 2.0 is in BETA and we may introduce minor/breaking changes

NOTE

If an IP address exceeds a certain number of requests per minute (between 10 and 90) to a specific REST API endpoint (ie. /ticker), the requesting IP address will be blocked for 10-60 seconds on that endpoint and the JSON response {"error": "ERR_RATE_LIMIT"} will be returned. Please note the exact logic and handling for such DDoS defenses may change over time to further improve reliability
