Here’s a glimpse into what we’ve been up to:
Highlight #1 – If You’re An OTC Desk, Exchange, Or Index, Please Contact Us … We Want To Do A Deep Data Integration With You
If you’re an exchange, OTC desk, crypto index, or security token platform, we want to talk with you. Primarily because we’d like to do a deep data integration with you.
There are several benefits to integrating your cryptocurrency exchange with us (Nomics).
When you integrate with Nomics we can provide your exchange with enhanced exposure and reduced development costs.
Benefit #1: Do A Deep Data Integration With Us and Get Increased Exposure For Your Exchange or OTC Desk
When you integrate with Nomics, you will get:
- A page just about your exchange on Nomics, along with links to your website, a description of what you do, and market listings.
- The inclusion of your markets on our currency pages (see the markets tab on our Stellar Lumens page for an example).
- Mentions on my twitter profile and the Nomics twitter account.
- Mentions in the Nomics Telegram Group and Nomics API Telegram Groups.
- A mention in our newsletter.
- A mention on our podcast.
Admittedly, the upside here is mostly for newer exchanges.
Benefit #2: Do A Deep Data Integration With Us and Massively Reduce Your API Development Costs
The largest benefit to integrating with Nomics is that, by integrating with us, you can massively reduce the development cost and effort associated with creating and maintaining your API.
The cost associated with integrating with us is very small:
You just need to create endpoints for:
From those two endpoints, we can provide dozens of API endpoints to users (for free, forever) that allow them to access data in many different convenient ways. And you don’t have to do anything beyond providing two simple endpoints.
And if you don’t want to do a deep data integration with us . . .
. . . that’s OK. We still want to connect.
To crypto exchanges: at @nomicsfinance we’ve used/integrated w/ countless exchange APIs. We’ve seen the best/worst.
Offer: if you’re an exchange & want free help w/ your API, hit us up. A few tweaks & you could have the best API.
No agenda other than better data. (pls RT)

We’ve used and integrated with countless exchange APIs and we’ve seen the best & worst.
Offer: if you’re an exchange & want free help w/ your API, hit us up. A few tweaks & you could have one of the best APIs in our space (the bar is pretty low).
Seriously, there’s no pitch. We just want data in the space to be better.
Highlight #2 – All Versions of the Nomics.com API Now Have No Rate Limits
Ok, this has been the case for a while. But it’s something that’s been getting us attention and that most folks don’t know about until we explicitly point this out, so it’s worth noting here.
Highlight #3 – We’ve Added A Bunch of New Cryptocurrency & Bitcoin API Endpoints
- Four-hour cryptocurrency exchange candles are now available
- Market interval endpoints returns volume and pricing data for individual markets for a given currency. We’ve also added start and end parameters to the Markets Interval endpoint. See https://docs.nomics.com/#operation/getMarketInterval
- More “interval” style API endpoints: currencies interval, exchange rates interval, and supplies interval
- The candles endpoint supports start and end times, and historical exchange rate data is available under exchange rates history
- There is now a prices endpoint which returns the current price of all markets for a given base currency
Note: Here’s the Twitter conversation that led to item #1 above being developed.
Talked to Clay minutes after this. Incredible response time on just the possibility of using their very nice looking API. Check https://t.co/OJanMFwYSM.
Also, his Flippening podcast is really good. Recent episode on security tokens well worth a listen. https://t.co/yPL8tflC9q

If you have requests of your own, hit us up and we’ll do our best to help.
Highlight #4 – You Can Now Sort By ATH & Circulating Supply (As a Percentage of Total Supply)
Our market cap dashboard now lets you sort (in ascending or descending order) by all-time high (ATH) of a cryptoasset price.
The Nomics homepage/dashboard now lets you sort (in ascending or descending order) by circulating supply as a percentage of total supply.
Highlight #5 Trading Bot Platform & SMS Alerting System Launch Using The Nomics API
Most of our customers are funds and investors. But we also have a nice base of makers, entrepreneurs, and product developers using our API. We love seeing products built on top of our API … and we actually encourage engineers to develop products that are competitive with Nomics.com
— Clay Collins (@ClayCollins) July 27, 2018
In fact, https://t.co/M57Ux99Zne uses the exact same free API that our customers use. We don’t use special/hidden endpoints or have backdoor access to additional functionality. https://t.co/1foYSletrl

In this spirit, we’d like to congratulate two recent projects developed using the Nomics API:
Project #1 – Travas Research’s Cryptocurrency Trading Bot Platform
The team at Travas was one of the first users of our API and they’ve had a large role to play in informing our product roadmap. I’ve Been playing with bots and having a blast. Congrats to Daniel, Christian, Matthew, and Nicholas on the launch of their new platform.
Project #2 – Crow – Get Crypto Stats Delivered via SMS
Crow is a scheduled SMS crypto stats API. Send yourself real-time stats on over 500 currencies. Create and manage all your schedules via a convenient API. Check them out here.
Note to Developers: Have you built something using the Nomics API? If so, let me know and we’ll do our best to include it in the newsletter.
Highlight #6 – We Need Help!
Building the data backbone for the open financial system isn’t easy. We need your help. Please hit us up if you are interested in any of the following opportunities. Referrals are (of course) appreciated.
We’re looking for someone to head up our metadata efforts. This will engage your thinking abilities but that the vast majority of work won’t be glamorous, and much of the job will be repetitive. To apply, link to anything you’ve done of note in the space. (Please RT).

Highlight #7 Our Appearance On the Bitcoin Podcast Network Podcast Talking About Cryptocurrency Data & The Bear Market
Highlight #8 We Recently Launched Pages For Individual Cryptocurrencies
Highlight #9 We Recently Launched A Security Token Documentary Called “Tokenize The World”
This took 100+ hours but our three-part tokenized securities audio documentary is now complete.
I decided to create this documentary about security tokenization after learning that many of my preconceived notions about security tokens were just flat wrong. During my journey, I also discovered that several individuals I respected (and who were otherwise well versed on cryptoassets) also had misconceptions about security tokenization, how and where security tokens attempted to add value, why they might be needed, and the mechanisms of how they worked.
To create this content, I had conversations with leading thinkers and creators in the field. What I found is that, at every step of the way, the tokenization of securities, real estate, art, and other real-world assets is forcing us to reexamine old habits and ways of operating.
This documentary started off as a passion project, quickly turned into a huge, time-consuming pain, and is now back to being a passion project as we hit publish.
Note: this series was sponsored by Blocktrade.com. Blocktrade.com will be the first fully licensed security token exchange in Europe, focused on listing crypto assets, security tokens, and other tokenized financial instruments.
By being fully MiFID II compliant Blocktrade will enable crypto trading to institutional traders while unlocking huge amounts of liquidity with their primary market partners.
That’s it for now. It’s a joy working with you and this community while co-creating the open financial system’s data backbone. Thanks for joining us on this ride.
Until next time,
Nomics CEO and Co-Founder
