Introducing the Robinhood Crypto Trading API

Robinhood Crypto customers in the United States can now use our API to view crypto market data, manage portfolios and account information, and place crypto orders programmatically 

Today, we are excited to announce the Robinhood Crypto trading API, ushering in a new era of convenience, efficiency, and strategy for our most seasoned crypto traders. Robinhood Crypto customers in the United States can use our new trading API to set up advanced and automated trading strategies that allow them to stay ahead of market trends, react to significant market movements, or simply trade crypto–all without needing to open the app. Robinhood is dedicated to empowering developers and traders with tools that not only transform but also enhance their trading experience.

“With our new crypto trading API, we’re helping customers harness the full potential of Robinhood Crypto with precision and confidence,” said Johann Kerbrat, VP and GM of Robinhood Crypto. “Robinhood Crypto has continued to see its market share increase as customers get access to a growing number of advanced trading tools to help them efficiently navigate the crypto market.”

At Robinhood, we pride ourselves on offering the lowest cost to trade crypto on average.* This, combined with commission-free crypto trading and the introduction of our crypto API, gives customers even more reason to trade on Robinhood Crypto.

Why Crypto Trading API?

With the Robinhood Crypto trading API, customers can write their own programs to engage with cryptocurrency markets in real-time, leveraging algorithms and strategies to execute trades swiftly and efficiently.

While API trading is inherently geared towards more advanced traders, we have built a simple and easy to use API so that anyone who knows how to code can participate with confidence and precision.

  • Collaboration: Customers and traders can independently share their code and trading strategies with others to implement using their own Robinhood Crypto accounts.
