Migration from Exchange API v1

First, you must generate private and public keys and switch the API authentication schema.

Migrating from v1 to v2 also involves updating your endpoint URLs to call the new v2 versions and modifying your applications to account for breaking changes introduced in v2.

Update the endpoint URL to https://api.changelly.com/v2. Next, update your application to account for several breaking changes made in v2. Review the following sections to see how the API methods have changed.
