The Multi-Exchange Bitcoin API

Project description


Welcome to the Multi-Exchange Bitcoin API!

This project aims to:

* provide a set of well developed interfaces useful in representing useful concepts like
* currency
* money
* exchange rate
* currency market
* promote their use
* provide API implementations of various bitcoin exchanges using them

This is an example of typical usage:

import mexbtcapi
from mexbtcapi.concepts.currencies import USD
from mexbtcapi.concepts.currency import Amount

ten_dollars= Amount(10, USD)
for api in mexbtcapi.apis:
print "At %s I can get %s for my %s (that's %s)"%(, exchange_rate.convert( ten_dollars ), ten_dollars, exchange_rate)

At the moment, this code returns this output:

At MtGox I can get 1.25 BTC for my 10.00 USD (that's 12.45 USD/BTC)
