API stands for “application programming interface”. API is a technology that enables communication and interaction between different software applications. In simple terms, an API is a messenger that takes requests and tells a system what you want it to do — and then returns the system’s response back to you.

A trading API, as the name suggests, allows you to interact remotely with your crypto exchange account and manage it from your CryptoView account. More specifically, it allows you to synchronize data and execute trading orders.

CryptoView’s API connections are particularly useful for traders with multiple exchange accounts, since all operations and data are aggregated in the same system and interface.

All major crypto asset exchanges today offer trading APIs to their customer base.
