Sandbox

A public sandbox is available for testing API connectivity and web trading. While the sandbox only hosts a subset of the production order books, all of the exchange functionality is available.

In this environment you can add unlimited fake funds for testing.

Login sessions and API keys are separate from production. Log into the sandbox web interface to create an API key, deposit/withdraw funds, etc.
