How does Authorization work?
All routes require an Authentication with an encrypted token. You must add a token authentication header to your requests. Here is the format:
Authorization: Bearer [your token here] Make sure you put the word “Bearer” with a space before your actual token!
Are there limitations on the number of requests?
100 calls with a leak rate of 10 calls per second. If your app averages up to 10 calls per second it will never receive a “429 Rate Limit Exceeded Error”.
10,000 calls for a period of 24 hours, which will reset at midnight.
See the API documentation for further information.

You will be unable to read/write data until you are back under the limit. You will see an Error: “Rate Limit Exceeded Error”
