    The Purk Project has launched the public Purk Button API that can be used in conjunction with the Purk Button on any website or application.

    The Purk Project was launched in late March 2018 and has been making strides in the website monetisation and donations niche by allowing website owners to monetise their content or receive donations/tips for their services. For those not familiar with the “Purk Button”; it works very similarly to a “Like” or “Share” button, but instead users can send a tip in PURK cryptocurrency to the website owner. Users can generate a button from the GUI wallet and add it to their website using a simple HTML snippet. A donations count is displayed which promotes social content popularity and the button completely eliminates needing to copy and paste long wallet addresses to a wallet allowing users quickly send a micropayment as a tip.

    Now the Purk Button API has been launched, developers can integrate the Purk Button in its entirety in to their website and build fully functioning applications around the Purk payments system. Purk Button users have the option of making button statistics available/trackable when they generate a button. If this is enabled; developers can call the API and fetch statistics such as donation amounts, donation totals, tx hash per donation, button clicks and impressions all filterable by date and embed location (URL).

    The API website at ( has detailed information on how to integrate the Purk Button API and provides examples in 7 different programming languages including: cURL, jQuery, Ruby, Python, Node, PHP and Go.

     “The Purk Button API will provide developers complete access to the Purk Payment gateway to use on their website or app without hosting a full node on their server. This allows simple integration of a cryptographic payment system that allows anyone to make quick and easy micropayments directly from the GUI wallet. Whether developers want to monetise content, accept charitable donations or raise funds for a project, the Purk Button API is the perfect cryptocurrency based solution.” said Ionic, lead developer at Purk.

    What does the future hold for Purk?

    As well as offering a complete monetisation solution for online businesses, Purk’s API collects data that will help the company develop other advanced blockchain based applications.

    A universal Purk payment plugin for a number of popular commerce platforms, a funding platform for future development projects, a web based wallet and an improved alias system are just a small number of items in the planning on the projects roadmap.

    The Purk Project and Purk Cryptocurrency (Ticker code “PURK”) is a virtual currency and API platform that allows users to monetise website content, products and services in the form of donations, gratuities or tips. The company is made up of a small and skilled team of software developers, web developers and marketers from all over the world.
