rgdax 1.2.1

Build Status CRAN_Status_Badge


The version less than 1.1.0 are now broken and unsupported. Coinbase had support for the old GDAX API’s only till the end of 2018. Version 1.1 and above WILL break the previous implementations and hence, it is recommended that all users should test this extensively with their existing applications (bulit pre-March 2021) and make changes as necessary.

This package is inspired by official and unofficial wrappers for Coinbase Pro API. Please read through the api docs to gain a better understanding of how each end point is likely to work.

There are two main groups of api end points.

Public: All functions belonging to this group start with public_ and can be used without any authentication.

Auth: This category of functions will require API Key, API Secret and Passphrase to connect successfully to the account. To get your api keys, refer to how to create Coinbase Pro api keys. The behavior of the functions will also depend upon what kind of access (view, transfer or trade) the api keys have.
