Manage your Bitfinex pulses via API
We have been working in the background to make Bitfinex Pulse much more accessible through automation. Following yesterday’s launch, we are pleased to announce the addition of Bitfinex Pulse API documentation.
1. Create a Bitfinex Pulse profile
You need a Bitfinex Pulse profile to post pulses. Go to to create one bitfinex.com and log into your account.
2. Create an API key
First you need to set your own API key. You can learn how to do this on our support page. The Bitfinex Pulse endpoints are REST verified V2 API calls. However, there are also two public endpoints for it pulse history and pulse profile.
To learn more about Bitfinex verified REST API, visit our verified endpoints documentation.
We make it even easier for you to get started with Bitfinex Pulse. With these ready-to-use scripts below, you can put or remove pulses by simply adding your API key and API secret.
