WebSocket is a better choice if you need real-time market trends and data updates, such as price movements and volume. WebSocket is a message-based protocol that provides more efficient data transfer with lower latency than the REST API. The REST API is a better choice if you only need to occasionally check on market data, such as historical trades and candlestick chart data. It is based on the HTTP protocol and features a wide range of applications. It is also a better choice for developing automated trading programs.
