Getting Started

Perform this list of tasks to get up and running with programmatic transactions.

  1. Set up an API Signer. The Signer signs the transactions created by the API User.
  2. Create an API User. An API User creates transactions. This step results in an API Access Token for the API User.
  3. Pair the API User with the API Signer.
  4. Call Create Transaction in Fordefi's REST API. Make sure to properly authenticate the API User’s request:
    • Pass the Access Token in the Authorization: Bearer <TOKEN> header.
    • Sign the request body using the API User’s private key (the public key of which you registered with the API Signer).


JSON-RPC Provider

An alternative to Fordefi's REST API is the Fordefi JSON-RPC Provider interface.
