What is an API?
API is short for Application Programming Interface. An API provides a means for one application to interact with another according to a set of rules. This set of rules can be found in the API documentation and describes how an application can interact with our exchange.
What is the intended use of the ALT 5 Pro API?
The ALT 5 Pro API is designed to allow access to all the features of the ALT 5 Pro platform on the condition that it is used in compliance with our API Terms of Service. Users can use the API to create highly customized and advanced trading strategies on our platform. The API also allows users to create their own trading platform on top of our existing infrastructure.
In the API documentation, you will find ways to retrieve or stream market data, retrieve or stream data particular to your account (such as your balances, order history, …), as well as ways to place trading or funding orders. The intended scope of our API is such that it should be possible to rebuild almost the entire ALT 5 Pro platform on top of it according to custom specifications.
