GIN Platform API is here!

We’re glad to announce the availability of the GIN Platform API! You can see the docs here: https://docs.ginplatform.io/.

As part of our mission to offer infrastructure services for passive income generation through masternodes and other types of nodes that service blockchain networks, we think it’s important to enable others to build on top of our technology.

This is also the starting point of the GIN Platform Docs, which will be the central place for all technical info and developer oriented materials, with a lot more to come soon, like SDKs for particular programming languages and other good stuff.

What is an API?

Application Programming Interface — in short, it enables developers to provision and manage nodes on the GIN Platform programmatically.

What is an example of use for this API?

A good example would be to create a new user interface for a more particular use case, say only deploy nodes of a particular blockchain with more tailored instructions.
