Standard Relayer REST API

Project description


A Python client for interacting with servers conforming to the Standard Relayer API specification.


The JSON schemas for the API payloads and responses can be found in @0xproject/json-schemas. Examples of each payload and response can be found in the 0x.js library's test suite.


Requests that return potentially large collections should respond to the ?page and ?perPage parameters. For example:

$ curl

Page numbering should be 1-indexed, not 0-indexed. If a query provides an unreasonable (ie. too high) perPage value, the response can return a validation error as specified in the errors section. If the query specifies a page that does not exist (ie. there are not enough records), the response should just return an empty records array.

All endpoints that are paginated should return a total, page, perPage and a records value in the top level of the collection. The value of total should be the total number of records for a given query, whereas records should be an array representing the response to the query for that page. page and perPage, are the same values that were specified in the request. See the note in miscellaneous about formatting snake_case vs. lowerCamelCase.

These requests include the /v2/asset_pairs, /v2/orders, /v2/fee_recipients and /v2/orderbook endpoints.

Network Id

All requests should be able to specify a ?networkId query param for all supported networks. For example:

$ curl

If the query param is not provided, it should default to 1 (mainnet).

Networks and their Ids:

Network Id Network Name
1 Mainnet
42 Kovan
3 Ropsten
4 Rinkeby

If a certain network is not supported, the response should 400 as specified in the error response section. For example:

    \"code\": 100,
    \"reason\": \"Validation failed\",
    \"validationErrors\": [
            \"field\": \"networkId\",
            \"code\": 1006,
            \"reason\": \"Network id 42 is not supported\"

Link Header

A Link Header can be included in a response to provide clients with more context about paging For example:

Link: <>; rel=\"next\",
<>; rel=\"last\"

This Link response header contains one or more Hypermedia link relations.

The possible rel values are:

Name Description
next The link relation for the immediate next page of results.
last The link relation for the last page of results.
first The link relation for the first page of results.
prev The link relation for the immediate previous page of results.

Rate Limits

Rate limit guidance for clients can be optionally returned in the response headers:

Header Name Description
X-RateLimit-Limit The maximum number of requests you're permitted to make per hour.
X-RateLimit-Remaining The number of requests remaining in the current rate limit window.
X-RateLimit-Reset The time at which the current rate limit window resets in UTC epoch seconds.

For example:

$ curl -i
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Mon, 20 Oct 2017 12:30:06 GMT
Status: 200 OK
X-RateLimit-Limit: 60
X-RateLimit-Remaining: 56
X-RateLimit-Reset: 1372700873

When a rate limit is exceeded, a status of 429 Too Many Requests should be returned.


Unless the spec defines otherwise, errors to bad requests should respond with HTTP 4xx or status codes.

Common error codes

Code Reason
400 Bad Request – Invalid request format
404 Not found
429 Too many requests - Rate limit exceeded
500 Internal Server Error
501 Not Implemented

Error reporting format

For all 400 responses, see the error response schema.

    \"code\": 101,
    \"reason\": \"Validation failed\",
    \"validationErrors\": [
            \"field\": \"maker\",
            \"code\": 1002,
            \"reason\": \"Invalid address\"

General error codes:

100 - Validation Failed
101 - Malformed JSON
102 - Order submission disabled
103 - Throttled

Validation error codes:

1000 - Required field
1001 - Incorrect format
1002 - Invalid address
1003 - Address not supported
1004 - Value out of range
1005 - Invalid signature or hash
1006 - Unsupported option

Asset Data Encoding

As we now support multiple token transfer proxies, the identifier of which proxy to use for the token transfer must be encoded, along with the token information. Each proxy in 0x v2 has a unique identifier. If you're using 0x.js there will be helper methods for this encoding and decoding.

The identifier for the Proxy uses a similar scheme to ABI function selectors.

// ERC20 Proxy ID  0xf47261b0
// ERC721 Proxy ID 0x02571792

Asset data is encoded using ABI encoding.

For example, encoding the ERC20 token contract (address: 0x1dc4c1cefef38a777b15aa20260a54e584b16c48) using the ERC20 Transfer Proxy (id: 0xf47261b0) would be:


Encoding the ERC721 token contract (address: 0x371b13d97f4bf77d724e78c16b7dc74099f40e84), token id (id: 99, which hex encoded is 0x63) and the ERC721 Transfer Proxy (id: 0x02571792) would be:


For more information see the Asset Proxy section of the v2 spec and the Ethereum ABI Spec.

Meta Data in Order Responses

In v2 of the standard relayer API we added the metaData field. It is meant to provide a standard place for relayers to put optional, custom or non-standard fields that may of interest to the consumer of the API.

A good example of such a field is remainingTakerAssetAmount, which is a convenience field that communicates how much of a 0x order is potentially left to be filled. Unlike the other fields in a 0x order, it is not guaranteed to be correct as it is derived from whatever mechanism the implementer (ie. the relayer) is using. While convenient for prototyping and low stakes situations, we recommend validating the value of the field by checking the state of the blockchain yourself, such as by using Order Watcher.


  • All requests and responses should be of application/json content type
  • All token amounts are sent in amounts of the smallest level of precision (base units). (e.g if a token has 18 decimal places, selling 1 token would show up as selling '1000000000000000000' units by this API).
  • All addresses are sent as lower-case (non-checksummed) Ethereum addresses with the 0x prefix.
  • All parameters are to be written in lowerCamelCase.
