In this tutorial, we will use the Coin Ranking API to get data on Cryptocurrencies. To do this, we make use of Node.js to create an endpoint from the Coin Ranking API and then we consume this endpoint in the frontend by using the JavaScript Fetch API.

By using node.js, we are able to avoid any form of CORS error that may have occurred if we had tried consuming the data mainly from the frontend.
