The professional API is not free, and users must pay a monthly subscription fee to access its features.

In terms of security, CoinMarketCap takes several measures to protect its users’ data and maintain the integrity of its market data. The platform uses SSL encryption to secure its website and API endpoints, which prevents unauthorized access to users’ data. CoinMarketCap also implements rate limits on its APIs to prevent excessive usage and abuse.

CoinMarketCap has also recently introduced a new feature called Verified Exchanges, which allows users to filter the market data based on the exchanges that have been verified by CoinMarketCap. This helps to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the market data and provides users with more confidence in the data that they are using.
