Crypto.com Exchange introduces V2 API and WebSocket Server
According to a recent blog post on leading cryptocurrency platform Crypto.com released V2 of its Exchange REST API and introduced a new V2 Exchange WebSocket API aiming to provide better service to its clients.
V2 WebSocket APIs allow authenticated requests to take orders, cancel orders, and more within one persistent connection. New authenticated subscriptions, such as user.order, allow users to receive updates on their own orders and trades.
The new V2 REST API requests consist of two categories, including Authenticated requests, such as placing orders or fetching account balance and Public requests, such as information on pairs or fetching the order book.
Crypto.com Blasts Service Higher with V2 WebSocket
The V2 WebSocket is now available on two servers, including WebSocket User API using for authenticated requests and subscriptions and WebSocket Market Data API, which is for public subscriptions, such as ordering books, trades, and tickers.
The changes in V1 REST from June 15, 2020.
While Crypto.com will continue to support V1 REST, users also should note the following important changes:
/v1/depth: Instead of supporting the type parameter, which controls the number of decimals the order book returned, the token's maximum number of decimals now will be returned
order_id: has been changed from a number to a string
Symbols: While the response output shows the V2 symbols used, such as “BTC_USDT”, you also can still use the V1 symbols, such as “btcusdt”, when calling V1 APIs
