Tomorrow (July 13) at 14:00 UTC, we will be launching a minor update to the BitMEX API ratelimiter.
Here’s what you need to know:
- This change should be non-breaking.
- Effective ratelimits are being raised across the board.
- Request “tokens” now refill continuously, rather than all at once every 5 minutes.
- For example, if you make 10 requests in 5 seconds, your resulting limit will be (300 – 10 + 5) = 295.
