Question Regarding Api Free Plan

Ahsan Raza Jun 12, 2019 07:55AM BST

Hi, I'm making an app while using your Free API and I have some questions regarding it which I cant get answer for

I know you can call 60 per min

I have made an app such that it calls every 10 minutes since I read it in your site that you update every 10 minutes

Now my question is this if I release the app many people are going to use it of course maybe 100 people 500 or even 1000 or more people might use it

So I want to ask since you can only call 60 per min does it mean that only 60 people can use it my app ?
As I am going to use in many times in future I like an exact answers plz

Hello,

Thank you for request.

You can ask users to register their own API key, and make a field for it in preferences. This way you will be not limited by 60 requests per minute.
