API

Application Programming Interface - Typically a block of code that has pre-written routines, protocols, and tools for building software or adding features to an application. Their function makes it easier to understand how software/application components should interact - like what to do with information that will be given to the API and which information should be used

ASIC

Application Specific Integrated Circuit - A chip customized for a particular use, rather than intended for general-purpose use. In this case, the chip was customized particularly for mining cryptocurrencies. ASIC is essentially a cryptocurrency mining device to put it in plain terms.
