APIs have become an integral part of professional crypto traders’ arsenal and are a testament to the evolution of the cryptographic asset trading ecosystem.
The more sophisticated investors enter the crypto asset markets, the more the use of APIs and algorithmic trading will increase. These trading programs, which seek to exploit arbitrage opportunities, for example, will actually help to make the crypto market more liquid and efficient. This, in turn, could attract more institutional investors to this new asset class.
The more the crypto asset trading ecosystem matures, the more market entrants can be expected. Currently, we are heading in the direction of the crypto asset markets becoming a part of the established global financial markets. Once crypto regulations are in place in the world’s leading economies, more institutional money will come, and the development of sophisticated and secure trading APIs will play their small but fundamental part in that.
We’ve seen a constant evolution in how we handle money. Before the 1990s, transactions were completed on paper, either with physical currency or a paper check. Then, as the internet blossomed, fintech disruptors like PayPal brought the world of commerce online, allowing companies to accept online payments for physical goods and services.
Blockchain is the technology that enables the existence of cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is the name of the best-known cryptocurrency, the one for which blockchain technology was invented.
Cryptocurrency is a medium of exchange, such as the US dollar, but is digital and uses encryption techniques to control the creation of monetary units and to verify the transfer of funds.
Blockchain is, quite simply, a digital, decentralized ledger that keeps a record of all transactions that take place across a peer-to-peer network. The major innovation is that the technology allows market participants to transfer assets across the Internet without the need for a centralized third party

Digital asset management (DAM)
The expanding popularity of cryptocurrencies and other digital assets can partially be attributed to their ease of use.
Digital assets are subject to a number of risks, including price volatility and limited liquidity. Digital asset markets and exchanges are not regulated with the same controls or customer protections available with other forms of investing and are subject to an evolving regulatory environment. Digital assets do not typically have legal tender status and are not covered by deposit protection insurance. The past performance of a digital asset is not a guide to future performance, nor is it a reliable indicator of future results or performance.
