Ionomy API Client for Node JS

in HiveDevs3 years ago


Ionomy exchange was quick to support and list Hive. That was the first time I heard about them. They don't have much liquidity yet. So, with the recent volatile market, there are many arbitrage opportunities if you act quickly enough.

To test my theory I went on to look for any available client library for them but found none. So, I wrote one modeled after another library named bittrex-node.

This is my first library published to NPM. :)
