Coinbase Finds an Advantage in Its Coinbase API

The Coinbase API makes it easy to integrate bitcoin, bitcoin cash, litecoin and ethereum into both new and existing applications.

I may have said before, Coinbase has its pros and cons, but it derives its power from its API.

You may be familiar with Coinbase Pro for individuals. Businesses who use Coinbase use something similar called Coinbase Exchange. One of the similar features is the ability to create a Coinbase API key . The passphrase, API key, and API secret allows you to integrate with 3rd party Apps and Services like CoinTracker and Intuit’s Mint.

In the screenshot below I’m setting up an integration between Coinbase Exchange and CoinTracker. It works essentially the same way for Intuit Mint. CoinTracker does what you think it does. It keeps up with profits and losses for your crypto investments. You can integrate multiple wallets including Ledger. It can be a helpful tool for things like reporting.
