BitBank API docs

Rest API

The most up to date forecasts (featureset objects) can be queried at and you can also specify if your only interested in a single market pair e.g. USDT_BTC

As these are the most up to date forecasts there will be no future data computed (what actually happened after our predictions)

For historical forecast data the past 4 hours of forecasts can be retrieved at

Your API key can be found in your account

API Wrappers

Wrappers of the rest api can be found for Node.js and Python

Let us know if your interested in another language wrapper or if you create one

Web/Javascript API

We currently support web/JavaScript subscriptions to live data using google cloud Firestore/Firebase

<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
  // Initialize Firebase
  var config = {
    apiKey: "AIzaSyAzimdCJNcfxWax0j3ZOxw-wGz01mh9euU",
    authDomain: "",
    databaseURL: "",
    projectId: "bitbank-nz",
    storageBucket: "",
    messagingSenderId: "530942804334"
  var db = firebase.firestore();

Setting up a connection to google cloud firestore with your bitbank username and password must be done before subscribing to changes

firebase.auth().signInWithEmailAndPassword(email, password).catch(function (error) {
  // Handle Errors here.
  var errorCode = error.code;
  var errorMessage = error.message;
}).then(function (status) {

Listen for all changes

    .onSnapshot(function(querySnapshot) {
        var featuresets = [];
        querySnapshot.forEach(function(doc) {
        // Do stuff with featuresets e.g. create graphs/trade
    }, function(error) {

Listen for changes to a specific pair e.g. BTC_XMR (uppercase)

  .onSnapshot(function (doc) {
    if (!doc) {

    var featureset =;
    // Do stuff
  }, function (error) {
