API Access and data format

If you'd like to work with normalized data format instead (same format for each exchange) see downloadable CSV files or official client libs that perform data normalization client-side.

    full_snapshot - generated channel with full order book L3 snapshots Coinbase Pro (formerly GDAX) real-time WebSocket API provides initial full order book snapshots for level2, but not for full channel. To overcome this issue we fetch initial order book snapshots from REST API and store them together with rest of the WebSocket messages. Such snapshot messages are marked with "type":"full_snapshot" and "generated":true fields. This effectively allows reconstructing historical full order book for full (L3) channel. Validation based on sequence numbers if full_snapshot overlap with WS L3 updates has been added 2020-06-11.
