Why do 10,000+ developers trust Abstract?

Easy to implement and maintain

We built Abstract because most of the API's we've used in the past simply weren't great. Our APIs are built the way we think API's should be: with excellent documentation, multiple easy to use libraries, and tutorials to get you started.

Speed and scale built into everything we do

Something like stock market data is probably part of a critical business processes and flow, so we built it (as all of our APIs) for use at scale and at blazing speeds. These aren't just marketing phrases, but fundamental features of our APIs.

Reliable uptime and great support

Developers trust Abstract because of our reliable uptime and excellent technical support that will help get you live quickly, keep you running smoothly, and resolve any issues you have fast regardless of where you are or what you're building.

Developers love Abstract's Market Data API

The Market Data API has saved us hours of work in scraping other sites and made our analysis much easier without all the heavy lifting.

Chris Stanley, Snapdata

We've been able to scrap tons of costly internal projects and just use [the Market Data API] instead, which has been a huge win for our team (and profits).

Julien Singer, Tahoe Market Research

No brainer for us to use the Market Data API. We looked at a bunch of different options and they're the best.
