Manage your Bitfinex Pulse through an API
We’ve been busy in the background to make Bitfinex Pulse much more accessible through automation. Following its launch yesterday, we are pleased to announce the addition of Bitfinex Pulse API documentation.
If you are a developer, you can go straight to our REST API to post, delete, or check your history. For those who might be new to APIs, we’ve put together some steps to help you below:
1. Create a Bitfinex Pulse profile
You need a Bitfinex Pulse profile to be able to post pulses. To create one, go to bitfinex.com and login to your account.
2. Create an API key
First, you need to set up your own API key. You can learn how to do this on our help page. Bitfinex Pulse terminals are REST validated V2 API calls. However, there are also two public end points for pulse history and pulse profile.
To learn more about Bitfinex’s validated REST API, visit our validated endpoints documentation.
We make it even easier for you to get started on Bitfinex Pulse. With these ready-to-use scripts below, you can post or delete lentils, just by adding your API key and your API secret.
