What's New in V3.0

This page describes notable changes made in the Gameball documentation since the previous version release.

Breaking Changes

Holding points

Holding points before redeem is now optional.

Transactions API will be flexible to accept redeeming points with or without a hold reference. This will allow integrators to pick the best integration sequence that fits their system flow.

Removed Hashing

Hashing is no longer required for sensitive APIs like transactions & player's information. Gameball now uses two keys for authentication:
