About DigitalOcean API Rate Limit
The API documentation says that “Requests through the API are rate limited per OAuth token”, and each API key can make ~5000 requests/hour. Am I allowed to “bypass” this limit by spreading my requests over multiple tokens? For example, would I be allowed to raise my limit to 10000 requests/hour by using 2 keys one after another since there are 5000 requests/hour per key?
