Understanding the Currencies API

The Currencies API page is a tool used to review information about the Wallets for each coin/token on Bittrex. You can find a lot of useful information here, but it can be difficult to navigate because of the way it is presented.


There are two things to remember when reading the API page:

  • each line of the API is separated by curly brackets: curly_brackets.png
  • each header is separated by a comma


Here is an example of a single line in our API with the headers marked in blue, followed by a table explaining what they mean:
