Merchant API Features

The Crypto Name API System

Merchant members may utilize several of the built in API connections, used to help remotely facilitate operations and functions within the Crypto Name infrastructure. Below is a list of the available API connection formats and the Crypto Name command functions available at this time. 

Connectivity between the merchant applications and websites will use an API Url and a unique API Key as the merchant identifier that will be used for all communications, such as the image below.

The above sample is a basic API connection string used to request a wallet address or public key from the Crypto name system. A complete list of all available Crypto Name command functions and their needed parameters, may be found in the merchant control panel.

Available Crypto Name API Commands:

keylookup – Used to retrieve a wallet address or public key for a given crypto name and currency.

cryptoname.symbol = ‘full cryptoname with currency ie; $test.eth’ – will return the public key


expdate – Used to retrieve the expire date of a crypto name. Common when selling Crypto Names.

cryptoname = ‘only cryptoname no need for currency ie; $test’ – will return the crypto name expire date


owner – Used to determine the primary Crypto Name of the owner for transferring Crypto Names.

cryptoname = ‘only cryptoname no need for currency ie; $test’ – will return account owner’s primary crypto name


addkey – Used mostly by wallets to easily assign a wallet address directly to a Crypto Name.

cryptoname.symbol key = ‘cryptoname + the currency symbol + wallet key’ – return 1 for success

 

Due to revealing some functional methods of possible security procedures, there are several  Crypto Name API Commands that will only be made available to merchants inside their member control panel. These commands assist the operators of Crypto Wallets, Crypto Exchanges, Re-sellers of Crypto Names and Secondary Markets. Developers may create new commands that can be used exclusively by their applications or made available to other merchant members.

 

We would be more than happy to explore any possible addition to the crypto commands we offer. Please contact us for more details.
