Always use HTTPS when calling the API. Non-TLS HTTP requests cause error 301 to be returned. Using non-TLS requests can leak your authentication credentials.
As a protection mechanism to prevent abuse of our API, we have several rate limits for different endpoints.
For our wallet generation, POST requests to this endpoint:
https://www.quidax.com/api/v1/users/<user_id>/wallets/<currency>/addresses are restricted to 20 requests per second.
For all other endpoints, we limit the total number of calls to 300 requests per minute
A good way to handle limits is to queue the requests and send them in batches or build a retry mechanism around the 444 status codes when received.
