Application Programming Interface (API)

By Cryptomcmillan1 | Updated on May 24, 2020
It is a software that acts like an intermediary or a bridge that lets two applications talk to each other. It is the one that lets applications, data and devices interact. For example, the price you see at CoinGecko is the API that calls the data from our server and in return, it will response to you with the requested price.
