VirWoX - The Virtual World Exchange

Today, the virtual currency exchange VirWoX unveiled a new API (Application Programming Interface), enabling software tools written by external developers to access its service.

"With thousands of customers, hundreds of thousands of transactions, and over 300 million Linden dollars traded so far, the VirWoX server has proven its stability. We now enter the next phase by opening our API to third-party developers, who wish to access the VirWoX exchange from their own applications or products, or to build new exciting applications that require access to a virtual currency exchange. VirWoX is the first and only virtual currency exchange with such an open programming interface" says Iliana Suppan, managing director of Virtual World Services GmbH, the company behind euroSLEX and now VirWoX.

In a first step, the company releases the "Basic API", which enables simple, read-only access to real-time and historical market data. Later, it will add the "Transactional API", which will give software developers access to the full exchange functionality, including automatic trading.

The API documentation is available from https://www.virwox.com/developers.php
