Example Usage for Bittrex API

from bittrex.bittrex import Bittrex, API_V2_0

my_bittrex = Bittrex(None, None, api_version=API_V2_0)  # or defaulting to v1.1 as Bittrex(None, None)
my_bittrex.get_markets()

This call to get_markets returns an object such as the following:

{'success': True, 'message': '', 'result': [{'MarketCurrency': 'LTC', ...

API_V2_0 and API_V1_1 are constants that can be imported from Bittrex.

To access account methods, an API key for your account is required and can be generated on the Settings then API Keys page. Make sure you save the secret, as it will not be visible after navigating away from the page.

from bittrex.bittrex import *

my_bittrex = Bittrex("<my_api_key>", "<my_api_secret>", api_version="<API_V1_1> or <API_V2_0>")

my_bittrex.get_balance('ETH')

This call to get_balance returns an object such as the following:

{'success': True, 
 'message': '',
 'result': {'Currency': 'ETH', 'Balance': 0.0, 'Available': 0.0, 
            'Pending': 0.0, 'CryptoAddress': None}
}

{
  "key": "mykey",
  "secret": "mysecret"
}
