This will allow developers to easily integrate these datasets into their platforms
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has released 12 Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to the public, with more expected to be published in the future.
In a nutshell, the APIs will allow developers to build applications that can automate the integration of official financial datasets into their platforms.
Some examples of these include applications that can compute currency exchange rates to help companies file tax returns, applications that can automatically pull up credit card statistics of the whole population, or software that can display the number of listed companies.
This news comes as the Singapore government continues to ramp up its drive to boost support and awareness for the local fintech sphere. Just hours ago, MAS granted full CMS license to p2p lending platform MoolahSense, a first for the country. Next week, the government will also hold its inaugural fintech festival.
Check out the full list of APIs here.
