Debug Info

DEBUG=node-bitstamp:* npm start

A word on parallel requests

  • The client will never generate the same nonce for two requests.
  • But a new request must always contain a higher nonce, than the last request before.
  • When you make multiple calls in parallel (pretty easy in node..) there is a chance that the later calls reach the bitstamp api earlier than the first, causing the first requests to fail with an invalid nonce error.
  • To prevent this you should make these calls sequentially.
  • Besides chaining promises, this is another way to do it:
const async = require("async"); // npm i async or yarn add async

async.series([
    cb => bitstamp.bitcoinDepositAdress()
        .then(r => cb(null, "BTC: " + r.body)).catch(e => cb(e)),
    cb => bitstamp.ethereumDepositAdress()
        .then(r => cb(null, "ETH: " + r.body.address)).catch(e => cb(e)),
    cb => bitstamp.litecoinDepositAdress()
        .then(r => cb(null, "LTC: " + r.body.address)).catch(e => cb(e))
], (error, data) => {

    if(error){
        return console.error(error);
    }

    console.log(data); // [ "BTC: ..", "ETH: ..", "LTC: .." ]
});
