API FAQ

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

API is available for both retail and institutional customers on LedgerX. 

All trades are reported to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The LedgerX APIs use JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication.

 

API Reference

Once you have access to LedgerX, log in and go to the API Keys page on your profile. There you will be able to create new API keys for your account. You can assign a custom nickname and expiration time for each API key. 

API Docs can be found here: https://docs.ledgerx.com/reference#overview 

Roles and Permissions

The LedgerX Platform supports multiple types of user roles to help our customers implement strong controls on account activity.

All keys are assigned the same Roles and Permissions as the user who created them.

Currently-supported roles are TraderAdmin and Auditor. By default, new accounts start with the Trader + Admin combination role (i.e. all actions permitted).
