A look at the cryptocurrency market, with all its hype, failed ICOs, and questionable players, reveals an ecosystem comparable to that of the miners in the 1800s. In such an ecosystem, will a market for businesses providing tools and services (such as APIs) to the blockchain world thrive?
ALFAcashier has opened an API for access to its electronic currency exchange and associated features. The API allows users to integrate cyrptocurrency exchange functionality directly within third party sites and apps. Additional services include order creation/status/tracking and address validation.
Airbitz has utilized its Bitcoin Wallet Plugin API internally and through select partners for a while. Now, the company has released the API to its entire user base. Airbitz expects the API to boost cryptocurrency usage through integrations with everything from marketplaces to gift card vendors.
