Currency Converter

I'm happy to announce to the internet community my project - API for currency convertion.

The initial version (1.0) allows to convert the currencies listed below to date. Passing a few POST variables to the specified URL you get JSON response which you may use wherever you want and do whatever it's needed. Have fun!

If you have any questions related to the API please use the form at the bottom of the page.

Changes Log

Version 1.0
