Bitcoin Core have wallet functionality and even have their own API which is JSON RPC (so you don't have to make your own API), so it's possible

Additionally, you might want to use https://bitcore.io/ if you want/need more API features and it can running along with Bitcoin Core (bitcoind)

Of course it is possible.

But the question is whether this is necessary for your needs.

As ETFbitcoin mentioned, you don't even need to develop your own API. You can simply use the RPC interface to communicate with your bitcoin core instance.


If you need an API for a lot of transactions (e.g. you are accepting BTC on a website): Setup core on your server (preferably in a DMZ), then connect to it using RPC commands to retrieve information. But note that you should store your coins on a different machine and NOT on the one accessible from outside.

If you want to be safe for 'home usage', you don't need a server at all. You might simply install core on your main machine and use it as a wallet.
Core will download and verify all blocks/transactions, just without an additional server.


I think we can give you a better overview regarding the options, if you tell us what you want to achieve with your setup (the main purpose).

As its mentioned above, it is possble to create a personal coin. But the question is for what ? May be you personally created coin means that you can something get from it. But to be honest i cannt actually understend the reason of this need. Could anybody answere me ? Roll Eyes will be very glad to make it more clear

I think he worded it quite badly (but the answers above should already give you an answer) and is actually referring to an API to make/facilitate transactions, for his business or w/e reason.
(As opposed to making an entire new altcoin for whatever purpose..)
