Python package to communicate with the bitstamp.net API (v1 and v2).

Compatible with Python 2.7+ and Python 3.3+

Overview

There are two classes. One for the public part of API and a second for the trading part.

Public class doesn't need user credentials, because API commands which this class implements are not bound to bitstamp user account.
