Zippcoin provides a RESTful web service API that developers can use to create zippcoin transactions and retrieve transaction history on behalf of users.
The most basic flow looks something like:
JSON is used for all request and response bodies.
Standard HTTP status codes are returned when appropriate. Errors are returned in a standard JSON object that always includes a field called errorDescription.
All API calls are encrypted with SSL and use the HTTPS protocol.
Almost all API calls use HTTP basic authentication. The username and password are the email and password that the zippcoin user signed up with.
This page functions as API documentation and live testing tool. You can use it to easily create working API requests, and use those requests as templates for your app.
