Buy, send, and accept bitcoin - all from one API.

Jan 29th, 2013

Our API got a face lift recently.  It now has:

  • An api key authentication method which is much easier to get started with. (We still have OAuth2 as well for third party apps).
  • New api calls around buying, selling, and accepting bitcoin payments.
  • And a new ruby gem which makes it really easy to get started.

We’d like to add more client libraries in the coming year (if by chance you are interested in helping out on one of these send us a note.  We’d love to open source these.)

Here are a few things you can do with the ruby gem.
