ZenSports Launches New Open API For Sports Betting



10 / 06 / 2020 . By Mark Thomas

ZenSports’ peer-to-peer sports betting product has until now only been available to consumers that utilize the company’s mobile app. Today, we’re excited to announce a new open API that will allow anyone to tap into the ZenSports features remotely without having to use the actual app!

With the new open API, sports bettors and developers can set up the ability to automatically create, accept, and manage bets en masse, set up automatic deposits and withdrawals in any currency, and utilize a host of other features remotely outside of the app.

For power users of our app that want to perform a high volume of transactions, manually performing those transactions one at a time within our app isn’t ideal. By offering an open API, those power users can automate a lot of the functionality that they would want to perform. We expect the open API to be perfect for market makers and bookmakers that are looking for an additional distribution channel to automatically add a lot of their bets to. Of course, all Makers still have to follow the rules of our decentralized marketplace, but our consumers are always looking for more liquidity, and so this should be a very attractive option for market makers and bookmakers.

The new open API will also be perfect for online sports betting operators and affiliate marketers that have a front-end betting infrastructure built, but that need the back-end infrastructure that ZenSports provides. This would allow front-end operators to tap into the ZenSports API to create new users, set up accounts, and utilize the ZenSports Referral Bonuses program to make an additional income.

Developers that are interested in utilizing the new ZenSports open API can access the documentation at:

Within this documentation are the following API calls and features that developers can tap into:

  • Funds and Transactions
  • Betting
  • Countries
  • Cryptocurrency Transactions
  • Fantasy Contests
  • Referral Bonuses
  • SPORTS Exchange
  • SPORTS Rewards Program
  • SPORTS Token API
  • Users

ZenSports launched a separate paid API for just its SPORTS token last month that enterprise companies can use to integrate into their own product offerings, along with a paid white label offering of the ZenSports app. This new open API is free to all developers.

About ZenSports

ZenSports is a mobile peer-to-peer sports betting marketplace where anyone can create and accept sports bets with anyone else in the world, without the need for a centralized bookmaker.

Customers can quickly and easily create their own bets with their own odds and terms, or accept bets that others in the marketplace have created, all at a fraction of the cost that traditional bookmakers charge and all right from their phone. As a decentralized marketplace for sports betting, ZenSports is eliminating the need for a bookmaker altogether, and giving bettors a cheaper, faster, and more trustworthy process for wagering on sports.

ZenSports has created its own cryptocurrency utility token called SPORTS, which customers can use for placing bets, earning discounted betting fees, and getting cash back, bonuses, and other rewards. Betting with SPORTS tokens gives customers a more exciting and rewards-driven experience for wagering on sports than what traditional bookmakers offer. Since launching our SPORTS token in July 2019, almost 100% of all bets within the app have been made using SPORTS, even though we also offer the ability to bet in Dollars or Bitcoin. ZenSports is proving out a real-world use case for cryptocurrencies that consumers are using in their everyday lives.

ZenSports is available for download in both the App Store (iOS) and the ZenSports website (Android), and is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
