Developers: It’s All About the APIs Baby

Borrowing the phrase from the popular Sean “Puffy” Combs song “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” the truth is that money can be made by developers learning how each respective wallet API works. Once you know the API of a specific cryptocurrency the next step is to generate your own online wallet. Once that’s done you can charge a small fee for any transaction someone makes, and also auto-generate wallets via a website or phone app. It’s very powerful.

This website isn’t going to teach you how to code new online wallets, but the resources to learn APIs of the most popular ones are:
