Bitcoin has released many BitCoin price data APIs since its launch in 2013. Now, the company has announced a closed beta of a new, full-featured API that improves existing APIs and offers new features and functionality. After a beta trial with existing users, the company expects a broader release.
Twenty-Two APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Big Data, Bitcoin, Sports, and Banking. Highlights include APIs for detecting data leaks and for integrating with retail Point of Sale solutions. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Bitpay's API allows for businesses and employees to accept BitCoin for their services and goods. Now with the addition of Newegg to it's repertoire of business affiliates, BitPay is receiving more credence as a leader in the march toward the legitimization of BitCoin as a secure digital payment system.
