Host Update

Note that we have officially moved to the latest API host since March 2024. If you are new to StraitsX API, please integrate using the latest host (api-sandbox.straitsx.com and api.straitsx.com).

For existing partners, we will continue to support the old host until further notice, so there's nothing you need to do now. However, we strongly encourage you to switch over to the latest host whenever possible. If you require any support, feel free to reach out to us directly.
