API Movers and Shakers: Your Weekly API Performance Report

Once again, U.S. Government APIs are not doing so well. FEMA in the US Government Collection was in the Red Zone with a CASC score of 5.72. This was primarily due to an outage on the 7th of March, which saw the requests to most endpoints timeout. There was also a scattering of failures throughout […]

Liquid is a cryptocurrency exchange that was founded in 2014 by Mike Kayamori and Mario Gomez-Lozada. The exchange is headquartered in Japan and has become one of the largest and most popular cryptocurrency exchanges in Asia. Liquid offers a range of trading services for cryptocurrencies, fiat currencies, and security tokens, and has gained a reputation for its low fees, fast transaction processing, and high level of security.

One of the key features of Liquid is its use of APIs, or application programming interfaces. APIs allow developers to integrate their own software with the Liquid exchange, enabling them to access real-time market data and execute trades automatically. This can be especially useful for high-frequency traders who need to make split-second decisions based on the latest market information.

Liquid provides a number of APIs for developers to use. These include:

Trading API: This API allows developers to execute trades on the Liquid exchange programmatically. It supports a wide range of order types, including limit orders, market orders, and stop orders, and can be used to trade a variety of cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies.

Market Data API: This API provides real-time market data for a range of cryptocurrencies, including price data, order book data, and trading volume data. Developers can use this data to build their own trading algorithms or to display up-to-date market information on their own websites or applications.

Wallet API: This API allows developers to programmatically interact with the Liquid wallet, enabling them to create and manage wallets, generate new addresses, and send and receive cryptocurrency.

Liquid takes security very seriously, and has implemented a number of measures to protect its users’ assets. These include:

Two-factor authentication: Liquid requires users to set up two-factor authentication (2FA) using either Google Authenticator or SMS verification. This adds an extra layer of security to user accounts and helps to prevent unauthorized access.

Cold storage: Liquid stores the majority of its users’ assets in cold storage, which is not connected to the internet and therefore less susceptible to hacking attempts.

Multi-sig wallets: Liquid uses multi-sig wallets, which require multiple parties to sign off on a transaction before it can be executed. This helps to prevent unauthorized access and ensures that users’ assets are safe even if one of the parties is compromised.

Despite these measures, Liquid has suffered from some security incidents in the past. In November 2018, the exchange suffered a security breach that resulted in the loss of approximately $80 million worth of cryptocurrency. The breach was caused by a vulnerability in the Liquid hot wallet, which allowed an attacker to transfer funds out of the wallet. Liquid has since implemented additional security measures to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
