The Shrimpy team has recently released the universal crypto exchange APIs for developers. These APIs take away the painstaking process of integrating each exchange. With a single set of APIs, anyone can now connect to every major exchange.
While trading libraries provide a degree of convenience, developers are still required to implement complex trading logic, data collection, and error handling. Shrimpy understands how much work it is to execute effective strategies. They soften the burden placed on developers by providing options for limit orders, smart order routing, automated trade execution, and portfolio allocation. These options come with Shrimpy APIs right out of the box.
Shrimpy’s Universal Crypto Trading API provides a solution for developers to manage all their users, essentially acting as a complete user management solution. Instead of bogging down your servers with user requests, each user can directly communicate with Shrimpy to access their accounts, execute trades, and collect data. This frees up development resources and allows your team to focus on your core product offerings.
Beyond the back-end system architecture necessary for low latency trading applications, developers who try to integrate exchanges manually are also faced with maintaining each exchange through sporadic updates. As the number of exchanges increases, so does the difficulty with maintaining these exchanges. Using the Shrimpy APIs doesn’t require any maintenance. The Shrimpy team handles exchange integration and any updates that require immediate attention.
Shrimpy’s Universal Crypto Exchange API was created to address critical developer challenges in the crypto space:

- Real-time Data & Analytics
